I’m linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for their incredibly awesome meme: Top Ten Tuesday.
This is a meme involving lists, peoples. LISTS! I love lists.
This week’s prompt is: Top Ten Books I’d Frame As Pieces of Art. Oh, my bookish soul is giggling frantically. This topic is just too delicious. I have a serious book cover obsession, peoples. But I will limit myself to ten! I promise! I’m a good little puppy.
If it’s a Maggie Stiefvater cover it’s probably gorgeous (have you seen the new cover for Sinner?!) but book #3 of The Raven Cycle just takes the cake. And the cream. AND ALL THE THINGS. It’s gorgeous and I’m in love.
I didn’t end up loving this book as much as I wanted to…buuut, we can’t deny that delicious cover. I am so happy to have this on my shelf.
You knew I’d sneak these on the list didn’t you? Oh, come on, don’t sigh! They’re not on every list…just, um, most of them.
And I have to admit, I’m hyperventilating just a little about Ensnared. Because I don’t want it to be Jeb’s face on the cover but I think it will be… HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR TO FIND THIS OUT?!
I’m not the world’s biggest fan of this series…but the covers! OH THE COVERS. The whole creepy eyeball thing is really interesting. I have no idea how it relates, actually. But I love them.
I own this one, but I haven’t read it yet. I’m kind of scared to read it, really, because I adore the cover. I’ve been coveting this cover all. year. long. And what if it the pages between don’t live up to the awesomeness of the cover?!
Speaking of aliens, though, have you seen the cover for book #2, Invaded? Don’t. Just…don’t. What went wrong? That’s all I can ask.
I’m a sucker for simple covers, and ohhh, Tiger Lily manages to mix “simple” and “beautiful” together in a mush of orange and black delight. I also like orange. Not prison orange, don’t worry. Just normal orange.
These almost always end up on my list too, don’t they? Gosh, I need to expand my bookish horizons. But while we’re here: ADMIRE. Yes, yes, just go ahead and mire the gorgeousness that is the apocalypse.
Don’t say shooting for survival isn’t pretty now, okay?
Is this not creep-tastic and wonderful? I have no idea why there’s a shoe on the cover and why that relates to “dolls”, but, I LOVE IT.
It makes me think of Cruella DeVil.
(And I haven’t read it yet.)
What? It’s my creepy side. You know I have one. There’s something about this cover that screams sadness and electric freakiness and call-the-Winchesters.
(I haven’t read this one yet.)
I literally just got an ARC of this in the mail yesterday and ohhh, my precious thing. I love all things hand-drawn, and there’s just so much happening in this cover. It calls to me. I must read it.
Now I know YOU all are perfectly sane and not as cover obsessed as I am. But, if you dare, tell me: out of these 10, which is the BEST? And what is your favourite cover of all? Also link me up to your Top Ten Tuesday post! I’m a little demanding today, I know.
Oh, and just a quickie note, our giveaway is still live and blossoming if you’d like to pop over and enter. You could win The Winner’s Curse, actually. So, go! Go! Go!
Cait is waiting until she’s filled up her bookshelf and then she’s going to arrange them by colour. Colour coded bookshelves are the best. (Just saying it like it is, okay?) To be honest, she actually hasn’t read a book in over a week. Horrific, right? But she’s nearly finished her current WIP…lots of angst and creepy faeries so far. Survival of characters is dwindling into the single digits.
