Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Top Ten Books I bought/ read based on the cover or title:
(in no specific order)
I am a sucker for a pretty dress- and this is one mother of a dress! I was brought in by the dress and the fact that the model is an Anna Paquin look a like. (I am a fan of Anna Paquin.) I loved this series, and I loved all of the covers- just so beautifully done.
You can usually tell an indie author by their cover. Although they are pretty, they are never as polished as a cover that comes from a publisher, which is understandable. Selina Fenech fooled me. I was expecting that Memory's Wake had a big name publisher like Harper or Simon Pulse- but no, that beautiful cover was drawn by the author herself. That makes it even more special.
I had no plans on reading this book. It was something that I wasn't into (Shadowhunters? No thank you!) But I kept running into this book (and City of Glass) and was drawn in by how detailed the book cover was. I finally gave it a chance and was hooked!
If you have been reading my blog for awhile - you know I am obsessed with this book. But look at that cover- it is GORGEOUS! I wish you could see a high quality version of the cover- the entire story is in that picture. It blows me away every time I look at it!
I stumbled across this one while browsing on Amazon. I thought- red dress, pretty girl, looks interesting! And I am so glad I found it!
This is another cover that I am not doing justice- it is so intricate, so beautiful, I requested it simply so I could see the cover in my hands. It is beautiful and the story lived up to the cover :)
I wasn't sold on this cover until I saw it in real life. It really does glow (not in a weird radioactive way, but in a beautiful shimmery way). The story caught me by surprise too- I didn't expect to like it as much as I did!
If you have looked at this cover in real life- you need no explanation. This cover is... well... I can't even find words for it- just spectacular.
This is the corset that started it all for me. This was my first foray into young adult paranormal fiction. This will always have a special place in my heart.
Golden sparkly lips- need I say more?
