Welcome guys to Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and The Bookish, and is now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.
Today’s topic is actually: Outrageous/Crazy/Uncharacteristic Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books (i.e. skipped meals, camped outside a bookstore, broke up with someone because they don’t like to read, traveled long distances to bookish events, etc. – submitted by Aggie’s Amygdala).
I love this topic and I’m so excited to see what all of you fellow bookish friends have done for the love of books. However, I haven’t really done anything note-worthy, or outrageous, so I’ve dug up the dusty files of TTT’s history to find an old topic to do instead. I’ve decided today to do: My Top Five Favorite Covers.
Let’s get started!
*Into The Water by Paula Hawkins. I didn’t really like the cover of The Girl On the Train, but this is beautiful!
*Gimme Some Sugar by Molly Harper. Okay, the reason this made it’s way onto this list is because that cake looks delicious! Any book with food on the cover is beautiful!
*A Beautiful Corpse by Christi Daugherty. This may be called A Beautiful Corpse, but I think that it should be A Beautiful Cover. It’s so pretty in it’s own way.
*Blanca and Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore. I love the font and the swirls intersecting the other letters. I also love how the top is black bluish and the bottom more red and the white strokes in the middle. It looks like a pretty painting.
*The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black. I’m not necessarily eager to read this, unless The Wicked King proves to be exceptional, but that cover is BEAUTIFUL. I love the frozen ice and the crown, it’s just so pretty!
That’s it for this Tuesday! What outrageous things have you done for the love of books? What are some of your favorite book covers? Share in the comments or link to your TTT’s so I can check them out!
