Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.
This week’s topic is a freebie centering around book covers.
A lot of times I am drawn to books because of how the cover looks, only to find out that the book just isn’t as awesome as the cover art. Fortunately, more of the time, I pick up books with deceptively simple cover art that hide the most incredible books on the inside. Don’t get me wrong – by deceptively simple, I don’t mean that the art isn’t beautiful, because these are gorgeous and appealing. They just may not immediately draw the eye as quickly as some of the more flashy book covers out there; but don’t get it twisted – these are some of my favorite stories, and include a few of the most impactful that I’ve read lately!
- The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
- This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
- The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson
- An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
