This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish is all about what’s on the outside. This is so easy! And I am going to let the pictures speak for themselves.
1. Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. This is a PERFECT example of why you should not judge a book by its cover. Ok, well go ahead and do that with this one because both book and cover are awesome. But…not so much with the lovely Wolves covers. The covers are the best part of the books. IMO, of course.
2. The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett. It’s lovely, spooky, not too “girlie”, and it matches the story. I heard the author speak recently and she said she was fortunate to have a little input about the cover and she did ask for and receive some changes. I am looking forward to the next book!
3. Sisters Red and Sweetly by Jackson Pearce. How awesome are these covers? So awesome. I still need to read Sweetly.
4. Hold Me Closer, Necromancer and Necromancing the Stone by Lish McBride. The covers changed between the first and second book, and I have to say it’s an improvement. There was nothing wrong with the original cover; it was fine. The new ones, however, are shiny and pop. Also, they may have the most clever titles ever. I love these books.
5. Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue, and Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier. These covers are gorgeous and the series is so much fun. I cannot wait for Emerald Green!
6. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. The cover for Scarlet is pretty, but I am particularly fond of Cinder’s weird and bada¤¤ cover.
7. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. I am not a fan of The Mortal Instruments covers (I especially dislike Clary’s wild red hair on the covers). I do however, love the clockwork covers.
8. Ask the Passengers by A.S. King. I love the sun on this cover. I think models on covers can be cheesy and/or quickly date a book, but this one works.
9. Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt. Now this one is intentionally dated and it so cute!
