Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Covers

Happy Tuesday, everyone! You know what this lovely Tuesday is? Today is the release of A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas. I know I’m not the only one on pins and needles waiting to open it up to the first page. So, while I not-so-patiently wait for my copy to be delivered, I bring you my first ever Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! These are some of my favorite book covers. I tried not to judge them by my like or dislike of the book itself but on the merits of the cover alone.

  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I love how bold this cover is while still keeping to a simple color scheme. Walking around in a book store this cover always catches my eye even though I own it and have read it a dozen times.
  • Borne by Jeff VanderMeer  – This cover are reminds me of some bold, lovely sculpture displayed in a museum or private collection. It is easy to sit and try to pick apart the pieces of it to try to figure out what they represent.
  • The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan – I’m not entirely sure why this cover always draws my attention, but it does. Flowers and the pinkish color scheme typically aren’t up my alley but this one calls to me none the less.
  • The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco  – What can I say, I have a thing for purple and the lovely gold scroll work makes for a very striking image.
  • Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popović – So, yeah, my love of purple continues. And that moth/butterfly in the corner is artfully placed to draw your eye. Beautiful.
  • The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine – The detail on this cover looks like stitching and, to put it simply, it’s lovely. I’m sure it’s relevant to the story but, if anything, I think it would look better without that drop of blood.
  • A Twist in Time by Julie McElwain– Elegant is the best word I can think of to describe the art on A Twist in Time. Again, a more simple color scheme but absolutely lovely


This was my first Top Ten Tuesday and it was really pretty fun to do! I found several books I want to read while browsing the cover art. As always, thanks for reading!

  1. I agree with many of these. I’m hoping to get to the Wish Granter this month finally. I sadly didn’t like the Bone Witch or Caraval as much as other people, but those covers are eye candy 🙂


  2. All beautiful covers! I’m a sucker for eye catching covers. Never thought I’d be this way, but I’ll legit choose a nice cover over one that didn’t put in any effort. It’s wrong, I know! But I can’t help it.

    GASP! You thought Caraval was a let down? I knew nothing about that book but all of a sudden twitter exploded with hashtags about it so I went out and bought it. I was pleasantly surprised. I liked the twist and turns it presented. I always thought I knew what was going on but had no idea (still don’t fully know what’s to come when she releases the next book).
