Top Ten Tuesday: Covers I'd Frame As Art

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke & The Bookish. Each week they host a different top ten topic.


Book Covers I'd Frame As Art

This weeks topic was one I thought would be really easy, but turned out to be quite hard. There are so many different covers I liked and found it hard to choose, but I just randomly picked them in the end instead of trying to narrow my favourites down.

The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
Fell by David Clement-Davies
The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
Sleepless by Tracey Ward
The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout


I have realised that I am a big fan of dark blues and purples on my covers, as well starry nights. These are just some of the ones I decided to pick, I really had so many that it was hard to narrow them down. Very excited to see which ones you all picked so be sure to leave your link below.

    1. It's a really pretty cover, haven't started the series yet though! I will check it out :)

  2. What are the chances that we would have the same book on our lists just different covers?! That's crazy man! Wow! You also like your eyes and your people. I think this weeks is going to showcase the little things we like on covers but never really realised and I think it's pretty cool. Of course I love The Shatter Me covers, and The Lunar Chronicles covers too, they're gorgeous! I think the Half Blood series JLA all look pretty nice too, so great choices! :D
    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday since I mentioned a similar book ;)

    1. Haha, you know I'd cyberstalk your blog anyway ;) I kind of check it everyday =D I know, that cover of The Sky is Everywhere is one I haven't seen before. I have to say that I prefer mine, but purple is my favourite colour ;) I know, it is weird... I THOUGHT I HATED PEOPLE ON MY COVERS! It has to be something really special for me to like it, usually people on covers does really wind me up... not sure why.

  3. I also have These Broken Stars on mine, and like you I seem to favour the starry nights and dark colours. Very pretty art :)

  8. I looooove these! And I have SO many the same as you! We are bookish cover twins. I totally was going to put Alice on mine and then ran out of room. It's sooo beautiful. I discovered I have a thing for orange. AND starry skies. Sci-fi usually has the best covers of ever. Like Plus One? And Salvage, too! (I've heard they're not brilliant, buuuut the covers!) XD

    1. HAHA total twins and you had quite a few on your list that I almost added to mine. I really love starry skies too, they make some of the most stunning covers. HOW'D I FORGET PLUS ONE?!? I adore that cover, it's absolutely stunning.

  24. Ooh…I like all of these, but especially the Shatter Me series. I have the old hardback for Shatter Me with the girl in the dress (the usual). I would much rather have the paperback cover. ~Pam

    1. I really dislike the girl in the dress one, but I am not 100% sure why. I have the first two in paperback but they are different sizes. I HATE THAT!

  25. It's so cute how you actually put them in frames! I'm so sad that I didn't add The Winner's Curse because I think it so beautiful how she grabs ahold of the R.

    1. Haha, thanks! That took a while, I clearly need to get a life. I love that cover, took me far too long to realise she holds the R.

  35. Pretty covers! I wanted to include quite a few of yours on my list too (The Winner's Curse, Cress) but well, ten's ten. :(
    We do share one, which is Ignite Me and though I've still yet to read that and Unravel Me, the cover's just such so attractive and utterly beautiful my mind automatically presumes the content will be just as amazing too. I sure hope that'll be true. Anyway, thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier on!
