Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Covers

May 21, 2013 Top Ten Tuesday 16

One of the blogs that I follow had a fun meme today that really caught my attention.  It’s called Top Ten Tuesday and each week we list a new book-related top ten list.  This week’s list is Top Ten Favorite Book Covers (of books that you’ve read).
Okay, so we all know we’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I totally do.  I mean, I LOVE a gorgeous (or just really striking) book cover and the cover illustration is often what grabs my attention enough to pick up a book and read about it.  So, here are my 10 favorites (from looking at my Read list on Goodreads).  If you click on the cover, you will be brought to the book’s page on Goodreads.
Splintered (Splintered, #1)  Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)  The Host (The Host, #1)  Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)  UnWholly (Unwind, #2)   Shaman's Crossing (Soldier Son, #1)   The Magician King (The Magicians, #2)  The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)  The Mind Readers (The Mind Readers, #1)  The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)

      I know – at first I wasn’t sure if I liked the Unwholly cover, but then I read the story and realized that it fit perfectly.

    Great choices! I especially love THE MAGICIAN KING and THE MIND READERS ones. And I agree on UNWHOLLY — it’s a creepy cover, but it represents the book perfectly.

      I know – I actually think that the new cover is kind of cool looking and fits the story really well. If I had never seen the first cover, I probably would have liked it. But the first one was AMAZING and the new cover just doesn’t live up!

    I love that you put Percy Jackson on here (:
    I loved discovering his book at a school scholastic fair albeit it wasn’t my own but it caught my eye really quickly and I’ve never regretted picking it up.
    I still have yet to read UnWholly. Cripes that cover gets cooler every time I see it!

    I didn’t read the host but my friend dragged me along to watch it. It was so bad, it was funny!
