Top Ten Tuesday

TTT — Books With Cartoonish Characters On The Cover

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 prompt is halfway to a freebie, allowing us to pick a range of books with a specific type of cover. And lately, I’ve been loving book covers with the cartoon-type characters. Here’s a list of ten of my favorite books featuring characters that are drawn in that style:

  1. Witch Please by Ann Aguirre
  2. Bad Luck Bridesmaid by Alison Rose Greenberg
  3. Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater
  4. The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
  5. The Dating Plan by Sara Desai
  6. We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon
  7. Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend
  8. The Donut Trap by Julie Tieu
  9. The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer
  10. Once More With Chutzpah by Haley Neil

What are some of your favorite books with this type of cover?

    • Thank you! I think these are going to age better than the Fabio-type ones lol! I considered flowers, but recently did a post about that. Weirdly awful classic covers sounds intriguing!


  1. Well spotted! I am not sure whether I like this book cover trend much; sometimes it makes me hesitate when choosing a new unheard book — like, what if it is “too” MG or YA? But they are definitely very cute!
