Hey Pals!! Today, after a veryyyy long time, I’m doing a Top Ten Tuesday post.
For those unaware: Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”
The topic for this week is: Titles or Covers that make me Want to Read the Book. Without further ado, let’s get started.
So here are 10 out of a billion books that I have judged because of their mesmerising covers or breathtaking titles because let’s face it: I judge books and I will keep judging them shamelessly 🙂.
1: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiegvater
The pure reason I want to read this series is because of its covers, because hands down, they are too good to be true! I don’t even think I will like this series all that much, I heard it has beautiful writing and I don’t like that in books, plus I am really not in the mood for any new worlds, but I don’t freaking care, I want these gorgeous delights!
2: On The Fence by Kasie West
Did I tell you I am kinda done with contemporary books? Because yeah, I am. But look at this cover, I might just die with cuteness overload! A guy who is thin, wears a white T-shirt and jeans? This cover artist has brought to life exactly what my ideal guy would look like (not talking about personality here, we’re talking about looks). Let’s just ignore the fact that we can’t see his face, and assume he has Damon-like hair.
3: These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong
Yes, I still haven’t read this book! The cover artist of this book deserves an applause *here I actually applaud*. I don’t think this is the most original cover out there, but I love it nonetheless. Not to mention, I do not think I will like this book either, like I said- high fantasy is a no for me right now. But the cover!!
4: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
The font of this title is everything! I have actually tried reading this book two times, but I always gave up after the first two chapters. I don’t think the way author kept using the word “monsters” fits well with me. But the cover guys, the COVER!!
5: The Knife Of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
It’s the title for this one. Doesn’t this title intrigue you? I mean, what a clever way to title your book, just name it something that makes sense just as much as it doesn’t make sense and bam! Readers buy the book only to avoid dying with suspense 🙂.
6: Ace Of Shades by Amanda Moody
I love classy this cover is, and I love the word shades in the title. I don’t even know what this book is about so don’t bother asking me ‘cuz I am too busy gawking at the cover 🤤.
7: And I Darken by Kiersten White
See what I meant by These Violent Delights’ cover not being the most original one out there? For this one, once again, it is both the title and the cover. And I Darken is such a mysterious title, if only kids like us knew how to title our imaginary books like this. *sighs*
8: The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
This title has always sounded very quirky to me and the cover in itself is just too cute. But once again, I never picked it up due to the fact that contemporary is not my comfort genre anymore.
9: Dial A For Aunties by Jesse Q Sutanto
I mean 😆, this title. I even started reading this book, I started the audiobook because I was unable to sleep…fortunately this book made me fall asleep and after 2-3 chapters, I woke up and realized that the book is on and shut it and went to sleep again, never bothering to pick it up again.
10: They Went Left by Monica Hesse
This is a historical fiction novel set after the events of World War 2. I like the title because it sort of depicts how most people would take the right path, but here, the characters took left, I guess, I don’t know, I just like it.
That’s all for me. Have you read any of these books? What are your thoughts on them? Do you think I should give any of ’em a shot? What is a book you want to read only because of its cover? Let me know in the comments 😀
