Hello, lovely people!
For all of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved, click here.
I have to admit – I love this Top Ten Tuesday prompt. There has always been that time when you see a cover of a book, and you immediately pick it up, or add it to your Goodreads list, without even checking the synopsis. It has happened to me many times. Even though I always try to choose my books carefully, there are always those times when I just can’t resist.
1. Furyborn by Claire Legrand
From the moment I saw this book, I knew I had to read it. The cover is so beautiful and symmetrical. It has red and gold. It has a crown and a sword. And I don’t need to know anything else. My copy of this book also contains deckled edges, which is part of a very fun blog post I did recently, where I try to find books for a challenge. Check it out here.
2. The Illustrated Child by Polly Crosby
I love the art on this cover. The pink paint scattered behind the title. And the girl with the red hair that appears to be carefree and happy. It gives me good vibes, and I like it.
3. Wonderland by Juno Dawson
The neon style captured my attention straight away. Then, the rabbit reminded me of Playboy – I won’t lie. So I was intrigued. And then I read the title – which instantly corrected me that it was something to do with Alice in Wonderland. And I was sold.
4. The Flight by Julie Clark
I have a thing for planes and deserted islands. Perhaps I think it all started with the series “Lost”. I am the person that will watch plane crashes one hour before boarding a plane. That person that listens to plane crash podcasts – it’s me. So, unsurprisingly, when I spotted a plane and a beach, I had to request it from NetGalley.
5. Feathertide by Beth Cartwright
I love reading about the sea, and I love mermaids. I think this cover is beautiful and very artistic, and I couldn’t resist to add it to my TBR.
6. A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik
The orange and brown combination, and the simplicity, but accuracy of the design is something I can’t resist. I immediately knew it was to do with magic, and I am ready. I will be reading A Deadly Education at the end of the month.
7. Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popović
I mean – just look at that cover! It’s so beautiful. Need I say more?
8. The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
The winter theme, the lovely warm cottage and the artistic style immediately gave it away for me that this is a Russian setting. And being Slavic, this theme is very familiar to me, and I am always drawn to it.
9. These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling
Witchcraft, spiritual things, tarot reading are things I enjoy in my own time, for just myself, as it helps me relaxes and find my inner peace. When I saw this cover, I was immediately intrigued and interested.
10. Sea Witch by Sarah Henning
Sea, witches, possibly mermaids? Yes, please? The illustration is fantastic and I can already sense danger and mystery. Of all the books listed, I thing this one may be the one I am most excited to read.
And there we have them – the Top Ten Tuesday books I want to read, only based on the cover. I didn’t include their synopsis on purpose, because they might appeal to you as well based on just the cover. And if they intrigue you enough to search for them, maybe they should be your next read too. 🙂
Let me know in the comments some of the books you want to read based on the cover, or if you have read any of the books I mentioned above. And if you could choose one to read, which one would it be? If you have your own Top Ten Tuesday post, let me know – I would love to check it out!
