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.
I know we aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover, but let’s be honest. We ALL do it. I’m especially guilty of walking around the library and browsing the shelves, then picking up various books that grab me specifically based on how pretty the cover is. I do read through the summary to see if it also sounds interesting, but a lot of the time it’s the cover that draws my attention. Here’s ten books that I absolutely picked because of how pretty the cover was. Fortunately, the story on the inside was just as good!
- Small Favors by Erin A. Craig
- House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland
- Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep
- Hook by Gina L. Maxwell
- Uprooted by Naomi Novik
- This Poison Heart by Kalynn Bayron
- Fable by Adrienne Young
- Cool for the Summer by Dahlia Adler
- Rebel Daughter by Lori Banov Kaufmann
- The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi
What about you? What book cover or title made you pick up the book?
