ttt: favorite book covers

This week's Top Ten Tuesday on the Broke and the Bookish is Top Ten Favorite Book Covers.

And like, well, just about everyone, I'm guilty of judging a book by its cover. If a book has a striking or interesting or just plain pretty cover, I'll inevitably pick it up. My screening process is more rigorous than just a glance at the cover (I always check the Goodreads average rating and never read books with a score below 3.5 stars), but a charming cover is still worth quite a lot. Not only does a cover make me pick up a book, it makes me want to love the book and want show it off to reader friends.

In no particular order, here are some of my favorites.

And not only are these books beautiful, they're great reads as well!

Top Ten Favorite Book Covers





What are some of your favorite book covers? Did the book inside match the beautiful cover?


  1. I love the covers of The Thirteenth Tale and Tigers in Red Weather. I've never heard of The Shadow of the Wind. That cover's amazing. The Blind Assassin is one of my all-time favorite books. Great list!

  2. Gorgeous covers - The Snow Child is one of my favorites although I have yet to read it.

  3. Woah, I really like The Snow Child Cover! This is the first time that I've actually heard of the book though.

    1. It's gorgeous, isn't it? As a lover of both snow and foxes, I was drawn to it immediately. It's a lovely book as well, if you're looking for something new. Beautifully written, and while I didn't absolutely love it, I know many others did.
