It has certainly been a while since I last did a Top 10 Tuesday… back in March, to be exact, since I put it on hold for all of April during Paris Month. This week, how could I pass up the topic when I admittedly judge books by their covers at times. Okay, to be fair, I don’t necessarily judge them by their cover all the time but more like that’s absolutely what captures my attention first.
Top Ten Favorite Book Covers Of Books I’ve Read
- The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan | I love the cover to begin with, and certainly prefer it over the more “happy & lively” U.S. version
- Die For Me by Amy Plum | How could I not include this gorgeous Parisian cover??
- The Blondes by Emily Schultz | I just love the way this cover is laid out. Quirky idea and design.
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer | While the red shoe in itself doesn’t really have much to do with the story, it’s an iconic symbol of the story of Cinderella, with the hint of the mechanics in the leg, it’s a perfect lead-in to what the story is about.
- Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin | Cover alone is gorgeous, but the actual copy with the shimmery shine is even more lovely!
- Wicked by Gregory Maguire | I know there have been so many iterations of this cover but I love the Broadway musical, and hence I love this version of the book cover.
- Blindness by José Saramago | This was a really tough read for me. Both in disturbing ideas and the way it was written. Had a tough time getting through it but I really do love that cover.
- V for Vendetta by Alan Moore | Such an iconic symbol, that mask. Simple and holds so much meaning behind it.
- Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O’Neill | A fairly dark and grim story but juxtaposed with a childlike cover. Simple yet fitting.
- The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith | The black & white photograph, the accents of red.. it’s eye catching and just lovely.
