Top Ten Tuesday #5


Is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week they post a new top ten list and ask fellow bloggers to share their lists on that topic.

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is a freebie, so we can pick any past topic that we want. So for today I decided to go with Top Ten Favourite Covers

If you know me by now you'd know that gorgeous covers are always my downfall, it's the cover which always first draws to me to a book and my bookshelf is piled high with some of my favourite covers. 


Gorgeous dresses



1. Everneath by Brodi Ashton
2. The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell
3. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Covers with gorgeous dresses are one of my major weaknesses and lately they seem to be popping up everywhere! I'm sure that if I could do a top ten favourite dress covers I could probably go on forever, so I've decided to choose my 3 favourites. Actually with Unearthly I was tempted to choose the Australian cover too because the dress is absolutely divine. You can view it here 


Watery/Underwater covers


4. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
5. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

I also love covers which have "watery" theme going on, I remember when I first saw the covers to these books I fell in love, I went out and bought them straight away. 


Favourites


6. Want by Stephanie Lawton
7. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
8. Bunheads by Sophie Flack
9. The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta
10. Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill


I'll finish off be leaving some of my favourites; I love the intricate detail put into the Alice in Zombieland and Bunheads covers. The Piper's Son I think is such an awesome cover because it does such an amazing job of giving you a feel for what the book is about also I ♥ Tom Mackee! And the covers to Want and Meant To Be are just so pretty! 

After making my top ten list, there were many more cover reveals that I can't end this post without mentioning some of these awesome covers; Jay Kristoff's Stormdancer and Erin Bowman's Taken 

So which covers would make it to your Top Ten list?

  1. Out of all those covers, I have to say my favourite is The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer! I just LOVE underwater covers and I LOVE Mara Dyer's cover SO MUCH! Plus, the sequel's cover is also as GORGEOUS as the first one!

    Awesome Top Ten Tuesday post, Jasprit! ♥

  2. What a great topic! I'm currently reading Bunheads and it has a beautiful cover! It may be shallow, but I love a book more if it has a beautiful cover.

  5. I love the cover of Alice, Bunheads and Meant To Be. I'm not usually attracted to covers to dresses, but I do love the cover of Everneath.
    I also love the US cover of Throne Of Glass. It's so pretty ! :D
    Great choices, Jasprit ! :)

  6. The Australian Unearthly cover is amazing right? I wish we had that one over here. :D Beautiful covers are pretty much my downfall too... I think half the books I want to read (or maybe more than half!) are because I fell in love with the covers. I'm so shallow, but I can't help it. ;) These are some great picks! I really love the underwater covers and Alice in Zombieland especially. :)

  13. I love the topic you picked this week Jasprit! Fantastic covers - I would definitely pick them up because of their gorgeous covers! I have to admit though, my favorite is by far The Piper's Son - I think it captures the essence of the novel so perfectly!(:

  20. Haha I totally have a weakness for the same pretty covers as you -- how can we resist when they all just look so gorgeous?? :') The cover for Everneath is one of my absolute favourites (just like the book), and both those underwater covers are just breathtaking. And Alice in Zombieland!! I read the first few chapters of my ARC as a sneak peek and it's SO good so far, J! :D

    Is it bad that this is one of my favourite top ten questions ever? x) LOL I need to go find some more of these beauty-full (see what I did there??) posts! <3
