Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Books I Initially Wanted to Read Because of Cover Love

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is actually supposed to be Titles or Covers That Made Me Want to Read/Buy the Book.  I decided to focus on covers, mainly because I’m a sucker for a cool cover and because they are usually what first catches my attention and makes me interested in learning more about a book.  As you can see from my selection, I’m very drawn to flowers, rich and vibrant colors, and to black and white covers with pops of red.

    I haven’t read any of these, but my goodness, they all look fabulous. I’ve picked up books for the cover in the past, but now I almost always focus on the title and the blurb. Hope you’re doing well and sending hugs, RO

    The only one I’ve read is Children of Blood and Bone which was fantastic on audio. I enjoy Annette Marie and I own both of the Alix Harrow books so I’ll get to them at some point. It’s a great list. I’d like to read all of them.

    What a great list of books. All of those covers are stunning! I was drawn to The Lost Apothocary because of the cover; it’s gorgeous! Sadly, it didn’t hold my attention once I got about halfway through. I loved Once and Future Witches!

    When you get the chance, I hope you come over and check out my post: http://readbakecreate.com/15-book-covers-that-scream-summer/

      I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews for The Lost Apothecary. I actually haven’t gotten around to reading it yet since those put me off a bit. Hopefully soon though.
