This week’s Top Ten Tuesday meme is a cover themed freebie, anything and everything to do with book covers!
As always, TTT is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, go check their blog out and join in the fun!
I’ve decided to do the ten book covers I’m coveting right now, so get ready for some major eye candy. I already have some gorgeous covers on my shelf, so these are only the books I don’t own or don’t have physical copies of.
1-3) A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas
Just look at these absolute beauties! I can’t get over how gorgeous Feyre’s outfits are on each cover, especially A Court of Wings and Ruin – the dress was designed by Charlie Bowater, whose fanart is just exquisite.
I haven’t got physical copies of these books because I listened to the audiobooks on Audible, and I’d love to have them sitting pretty in my shelf.
4-7) The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
This is one of those massive series that everyone else is obsessed over and I just haven’t gotten round to yet, but I’m going to change that this year! The covers are so cool, but I’ll probably borrow them from the library if I’m honest, only because it’s a long series and I’d have to buy them all, and that’s a lot of money.
8) Caraval by Stephanie Garber
I can’t wait to get my hands on this book, but I’ll probably get the audio book, it just seems like the type of story I’ll enjoy listening to more than reading. I just listened to The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and adored it, so this is right at the top of my list for my next Audible credit.
9) Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
This is one book where I don’t care which edition I get hold of, both are equally stunning. Just take a look!
I think the left one is the US version and the right one is the UK, but I’m not sure. Again though, I’ll probably get the audio book, as Laini’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone was the first book I listened to on Audible and I loved it, her writing is so lyrical and beautiful and just a joy to hear on my daily commute.
10) Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst
This one is just beautiful, and it has an LGBT romance at the centre, so that’s two huge boxes ticked. It sounds right up my street – elemental magic, a princess betrothed to the prince of an allied kingdom, it’s like a modern day fairy tale.
Well, that list turned out to be very fantasy heavy! I might do a YA contemporary version at some point because there are so many absolutely stunning contemporary covers out there right now, and I’m desperate to read more of it. It seems I like my fantasy covers moody and atmospheric, with quite simple designs and rare pops of bold colour. When it comes to contemporaries I definitely prefer pastel colours, cutesy designs and preferably some kind of food or adorable creature, so that will be a fun list to put together!
