Top Ten Tuesday {12}

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 topic is: Top Ten Favorite Covers

This is in no way, shape, or form a complete list. I simply wouldn't know where to begin. So, instead of hurting my brain trying to make a fair and comprehensive list, I went to my bookshelf instead.
I'm attracted to books with things under the jacket, so I tried to stick with that :]

1. Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu
Not only does it have a pretty outside with all the colors blending and the snow, it has a pretty inside with shiny little blue snowflakes embossed on it.

2. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Of course, I couldn't make this list without including this book. Most probably already know about the awesome reversible jacket, but did you know about the pretty embossing on the book itself?

3. Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey
Once again, it's really pretty on the outside. Maybe not from the internet, but in person it's all shiny and such. Underneath the jacket there's pretty little vine-like things on the book too.

4. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
Hiding under this jacket is a pretty little butterfly which I adore.

There's not actually anything surprising hiding under these jackets, but I simply adore the colors on both. Anna is a beautiful deep purple with spine writing in green (my two favorite colors!!) and Lola is a lovely mint green with purple writing on the spine.

6. The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
I won't lie and say these are my favorite covers or anything. I don't hate them, but I don't particularly like them either. What I DO like is what's underneath. Each book has a pretty bird embossed on it.

7. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
This is almost cheating since I have the B&N Classics edition, but I can't help it. They're all so beautiful, but this is definitely one of my favorites. First, it's purple. Second, it's covered in cute little animals.

Also a B&N Classic, but you simply can't argue its awesomeness.

9. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I've always kind of liked this cover anyways. I think it was one of the first real-life type covers I'd ever seen and when I first came across it it seemed so edgy. Anyway, the really cool thing about this one is the map that hides under the jacket. It has writings on it which I assume (it's been a long time, okay) are to be written by Hannah.

And I can't settle on another pic, so this is what you get :P


  1. I loved the cover for Breadcrumbs! I also love love love your copy of The Secret Garden. This was my favorite childhood classic, and your version is just charming.

  2. I LOVE with the actual book has some sort of design on it. Fantastic list! :)

  3. I usually take off the jackets when I read a book. I love seeing what's hidden beneath. I like that you took a picture and included pictures of the actual book. :) Thank you for your comment on Estelle's IMM on Sunday!

  4. WOW. I love this list. I haven't seen the undersides of most of these. Actually, the only one I've seen is Incarnate, which IS beautiful. So these are ALL NEW to me! Thank you so much for sharing them, Jasmine!

    I can't get over the Across the Universe and 13 Reasons Why!


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
