Top Ten Tuesdays: Cover Art

toptentuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is the ten covers you’d hang on your wall as art. The hardest part of this was limiting myself to only ten! It’s an interesting mix in terms of its status on my TBR pile — some of them I’ve read and loved, some are on the “to be read” shelves (yes, plural shelves), and a couple I know absolutely nothing about…except I saw their covers on Pinterest and adored them!

In terms of their artistic content though, all bar two have females (or parts of females in the case of Cinder) on them. One of those females is 12 and carrying an axe, though, and another is 16 and weilding a katana.

All of that said, I’m aware of my preference for gorgeous ladies on the front of books. I’m not sure what that says about me. 😉

I considered writing a blurb on each book, but this post is dedicated to the art, so I decided to let them speak for themselves. I’d love to see your favourite covers, though. Please link them in the comments so I can check them out (and add them to my Pinterest board).

    I know, don’t judge a book by its cover, but wow! Would definitely pick up these books for the covers 😀

  2. Quite Contrary looks so perplexing and amusing at the same time (or maybe that’s just me)–and it certainly makes me want to know more. Steampunk covers are usual winners because I can’t imagine it doing any wrong with it’s colour palette and signature aesthetic elements.

  4. […] about this series, so I want to see what all the fuss is about. Plus I love that cover enough to frame it and put it on my wall. (The sequel’s cover is great […]
