Top Ten Tuesday: Titles or Covers that make me Want to Read the Book

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. β€œIt 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 πŸ™‚.


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 πŸ™‚.


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 πŸ˜†, 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 πŸ˜€

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Quotes

Hey Pals!! Today, I am participating, for the first time, in Top Ten Tuesday πŸ˜‰.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week, we have to talk about 10 of our favorite things related to books. This week’s topic is:

Favorite Quotes

Here are some of my favorite book quotes, all aren’t necessarily quotes, some are just great lines:

Note: There might be minor/major spoilers here and there as a few of these quotes are the last lines in the books so make sure to skip that quote to avoid getting spoiled.

There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

I am haunted by humans.

“Bob says hello,” He told the stars.

The Argo II sailed into the night.

“Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest

Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!

Drink and the devil had done for the rest

Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”

Suddenly, I turn to him and toss it in his direction. “And may the odds–” I say. I throw it high so he has plenty of time to decide whether to knock it aside or accept it.

Gale’s eyes train on me, not the berry, but at the last moment, he opens his mouth and catches it. He chews, swallows, and there’s a long pause before he says, “–be ever in your favor.” But he does say it.

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, and the one who doesn’t read, lives just one.

I haven’t read any books in A Song of Ice and Fire series but obviously, this quote is known to a wide audience of readers, including me.

Beware of Silas Scratch

And lastly, to end it with the final lines of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, I have:

The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.
