Top Ten Tuesday {3}

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week there's a category and everyone participating lists their "Top Ten" in that category.

This week's question: Top ten books whose titles or covers made me buy it.

I decided to go with all covers because there aren't that many titles that truly catch my eye. I haven't actually bought most of these either, but they are covers that made me remember the book long after I saw it on the shelf.

1. Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater 
These books are beautiful! The covers themselves are fantastic, but the actual hardware underneath has pretty little imprints. I love them and I just want to display them like art.

2. Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
Vampire books aren't usually my thing, but the cover for this one is just so quirky and unique. Also, the model looks a bit like Miranda Cosgrove.

3. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
So I actually did buy this one for the cover. I'd heard good things about this one, but I'd also heard the jacket was reversible. C'mon, who's not going to jump all over that?

4. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
This is another one that I actually did buy for myself. I'd heard a few good things about it, but I secretly just liked the cover. There's something about water on a book cover that just ends up looking good.

5. Possession by Elana Johnson
I read this one and it wasn't my favorite, but the cover still attracts me. If you could see the real thing, the white part is all sparkly and shiny and then the bright blue of the butterfly is just so eye catching.

6. Hourglass by Myra McEntire
I'm not quite sure what it is about this one, but it's really eye catching. And I didn't notice this until someone else pointed it out, but the girl is actually walking on the wall and that's not a door.

7. Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
I'm not quite sure that I'll read this one, but that cover is gorgeous! The girl is pretty, and then there's the boat and all the flower petals...sigh. I'll just take a poster of this, frame it, and be set.

8. Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin
I remember seeing this one on the shelves Barnes & Noble when it first came out and I never really forgot about it. I love the font of the title, the girl running away, and the colorful trees. There's something both mysterious and beautiful about it.

9. Everlasting by Angie Frazier
I don't actually remember what this book is about in the slightest even though I've read the synopsis quite a few times. Every time I see the spine on the library shelf I pull it down and think "oooh pretty". I love the map that's faintly in the background.

10. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
First, one of my favorite colors is purple. There's that, then there's the fact that the hardcover is just so pretty and shiny. The script and the pretty dress don't hurt either.


  1. Some really lovely covers here :D

  2. I forgot about extraordinary. Yes I got that one because of the cover too.
    Happy Tuesday.

  3. I totally agree with your first choice - The Wolves of Mercy Falls series. Isn't it just so pretty to have all three books together? ;)

  4. Drink Slay Love made me laugh! That's the first time I've seen it. Looks very cool though. I like the look of Hour Glass too.

    You have a new follower. :)

  5. I love all these and I really want to read Tris And Izzie, I'm a new follower, my WOW http://headstuckinabook.blogspot.com/2011/10/top-ten-tuesday.html
