Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Love

21 May

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature created at the fabulous The Broke and the Bookish, featuring weekly top ten lists on a variety of bookish topics. This Tuesday’s topic is Top Ten Book Covers – specifically covers from books that we have read. I thought about just making a YA list, but I kept coming back to a couple of these adult titles. I didn’t include picture books because that would have taken me all night to narrow down (confession: I love picture books as much as YA!). But after much deliberation, here is a nice sampling of books that win big time in the judge them by their covers competition.


The Passage by Justin Cronin
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Dry by Augusten Burroughs

Level Up by Gene Luen Yang and Thien Pham


The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart

Since I have read all these books I can vouch for them all being as fabulous on the inside as they are on the outside, with one exception…. Can you guess which book I was more crazy for the cover than the story and writing?

CONGRATULATIONS! We have been having some web hosting issues in the past couple weeks, which have made accessing the site impossible at times and all around frustrating. After a recent migration to a new server, the site has been working very slowly or not at all. We are planning to make a move soon to a new server and new provider. Hopefully, we’ll be back to usual in the next few days. Thanks for your patience! And happy reading!
