Top Ten Favorite Covers From My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. 

FREEBIE WEEK!! YAY! Wait. What should I do. This is too much pressure. AHH.
Yup that was me on this freebie week. I like having things set for me. Too open means too many choices and I get stuck. With that I went to what I know best – Pretty covers. I LOVE covers and will totally pick many books based solely on this fact. Below are my top ten favorite covers from my TBR on Goodreads. Enjoy!

All the pretty colors


How pretty are these, right? I love that they are so colorful and memorable. They make me happy (even if the story doesn’t).

Dress up


While I am not a girly girl by any means I love me a good dress. And these two are beautiful. There are many other pretty covers with pretty dresses just not many I want to read so that’s how these made the cut.

whats in a name


Blank & Blank is such a simple title and these covers nailed it for me. I love the whimsy of Hugo & Rose, the pretty in pink of Anne & Henry and the contrast of the colors of Emmy & Oliver.

Bottoms Up

kasie west TTT

Oh Kasie West. I’ve never read you but I love your covers. I love the headless couples so much. I don’t want to see their faces because then I can’t dream them up on my own. Plus, what lovely shoes and fun fonts.

Do you like a specific type of cover? Do you pick books based on their cover?

      Ugh I could have put so many in that color category but I stuck to only three – so hard to choose!

  1. This list has a lot of gorgeous covers, I’m going to read “The Selection” soon and I hope it lives up to it’s cover! I am so guilty of picking books by cover! Mostly I am specifically drawn to dark and Gothic covers, but I also like the elegant and just right out beautiful kind of covers (like your dress up category).

  2. I hate not having things ready and set for me, as well! My creativity goes down the drain, haha. I love the topic you chose, though!

    I didn’t love Everything, Everything and A Thousand Pieces of You when I first saw them, but they’ve both grown on me. The colorful spikes in I’ll Give You the Sun are so glorious.

    I love the girl-in-a-dress type covers as well. The ones in the Selection trilogy are so gorgeous and I want them.

    I also like the blank & blank titles. Not a big fan of the covers for Anne & Henry and Emmy & Oliver, but the one for Hugo & Rose is just so cute!

    You should DEFINITELY read Kasie West. I’ve read all her published works and loved them all. The two you shared are my least favorites, though. Coincidentally. xD

      Yes to glorious colorful spikes!
      The dress thing for me is so weird because in general I am not a fancy dress person but apparently throw them on a cover of a book and I am all about them. The whole selection trilogy covers are amazing.
      I am so excited to read Kasie West (just need to find the time)!

  3. I love your topic!! I am a huge fan of beautiful covers and titles too. I loved your thoughts about the “headless couples”! I have picked many books because of their covers. I am reading I’ll Give You The Sun right now and I am constantly staring at the cover.

      Oh I have been burned by a book I picked out solely based on its cover way too many times. I will never learn my lesson though.

  4. A good cover is one of the many selling points for a book.

    Some of the tie-in novels I’ve read with original artwork on the cover only draw me in more to see if and how the situation on the cover might be arrived at and then resolved.

      A Thousand Pieces of You is one of those ones that catches my eye EVERY SINGLE TIME I see it!

  5. Great list! All of those covers are so gorgeous. I picked up A Thousand Pieces of You based nearly entirely on that lovely cover (and the story ended up being rockstar too!) I made my list on “Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far in 2015.” Here’s my TTT. Happy reading!

  6. Great topic! I haven’t heard of the last 5 books on here but I love the covers! I love how colorful Every Thing Every Thing, I’ll Give You the Sun, and A Thousand Pieces of You. I really enjoyed The Selection. It’s not literature but it can get addicting haha. I loved Shatter Me as well but I didn’t finish the trilogy because I didn’t like the direction it was going.

  7. YES!! I love covers and often buy books based on the cover. That’s why I searched high and low for Snow Like Ashes, bought Talon, and want to get Red Queen.

    I’ve always been attracted to I’ll Give You The Sun. The colorful lines draw my attention to the cover no matter where it is on a shelf.

  8. So pretty! I’ve only read two of these — THE DISTANCE BETWEEN YOU AND ME and HUGO AND ROSE. Love the cover on the former, although it doesn’t quite match the story. Knowing what the latter is about makes me appreciate the simple cover. Considering what the book is about, I don’t know how else it could have been illustrated.

    Happy TTT!

      Sometimes just a pretty cover is good even if it isn’t super reflective of the story , especially if its hard to depict. Thanks for stopping by!

      Oh I totally have books that are just sitting around since I bought them from their covers. OOPS! I am really going to try and fit in Kasie West SOON because everyone loves her books!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Yes I love me a good water color cover!!! There are definitely more of them on my TBR.
