Top Ten Tuesday (#28)


HOSTED BY: The Broke and The Bookish
DESCRIPTION:  Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week’s theme: Top Ten Most Anticipated Book Releases for the Second Half of the Year

My Theme: Top Ten GORGEOUS Covers (from my shelves)-Hardcover Edition

Because PREEEEEEEEETTIES!  Click the cover to go to the goodreads page.


There’s just something creeptastic and gorgeous about this cover!  Which…says pretty much absolutely nothing useful, but this is ME we’re talking about.  I’m never helpful.


Stephen King has an affinity for gorgeous (and slightly creepy) covers!  This is one of my personal favorites–see Death with his scythe in the background?


And…following up with another King book, without the dust jacket because I lost it…somewhere?…years ago sometime?  But it’s tooootes cool, I like it better like this anyway.


I didn’t even know this naked hardcover existed until I started peeking under all my dust jackets.  Isn’t it GORGEOUS?!


This wouldn’t be a complete list without these beautiful books!


Transparent, grainy covers over pretty naked covers are just… Insta-love territory there for me.  I can’t help but adore them.


Again, it’s that whole transparent glossy/naked cover thing–I just can’t help myself!


I don’t even know?!  why I like this cover?!  I think it might be the color, honestly, but it’s also so unique and creative and helloooooo, first glimpse of Night Vale!


This one’s easier to explain.  First, the covers are gorgeous.  Second, those plants crawling up the motorcycle?!  Can we just say HELLO, SEXY!?

What books do YOU go ga-ga for?  Any specific cover characteristics you find yourself undeniably drawn to?  Feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comments, or link me to your own Top Ten Tuesday!

Until next time, happy book-ing!

  1. Yaaas, great choices this week! I’m actually much more of an ebook reader so the only time I get to REALLY appreciate covers when I see the book in the bookstore… which is a HUGE mistake judging from this post. I think I love it when covers are 3D-ish – like, it’s not just a piece of paper but it’s also embossed, etc. Makes it all the more beautiful. 🙂

    Here’s my TTT.
