TTT: Favourite Covers

toptentuesday

It is that time of the week for another Top Ten Tuesday. It is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. This weeks topic is a cover freebie, so I am going to be sharing 10 of my favourite covers. I have to admit that if a cover is nice or pretty, than I am more likely to check it out, and there are some really amazing book covers out there. By the way, I also apologise in advance for my shadow in some of the photos – I will work on that in the future. Onto 10 of my favourite covers.

Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien – they’ve also released a couple of her other books in similar editions and they are also amazing.

These editions of all Robin Hobb books, designed by Jackie Morris (I think) – Dragon Keeper and Fool’s Errand

Lastly, The Tiger and the Wolf by Adrian Tchaikovsky – it’s sequel, The Bear and the Serpent, also has an stunning cover but I don’t own a copy yet.

 

There are many more amazing covers that I could share but I can leave that for another time :). These covers are definitely some of my favourites at the moment though. I’d be interested if you guys think covers are important… personally I think they are as I think as humans we are drawn by attractive things, obviously this will differ for people. Anyway I hope you guys are having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

  1. Love your post and love the covers you chose! The classics at the beginning are my favorite to collect, even though I never actually end up reading them. Hope you have a wonderful week!
