Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.
May 2: Cover Theme Freebie
I was a little torn on this weeks theme. I thought about selecting ten covers with amazing typography. Or looking at covers of a certain color. What about covers with cartoons on the front? There are some beautiful covers done with watercolor. As you can see, there are so many options! It was too hard to decide which way I wanted to go. So instead, I’ve gone with…
Ten Covers I Couldn’t Resist
These are books that I didn’t know anything about before I saw the cover. Unknown author, characters, plot, even genre. The cover is what drew me in, and I read the book.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe | The Hopefuls
Landline | The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett | The Outsmarting of Criminals
The Mapping of Love and Death |Where’d You Go, Bernadette
The Book of Speculation | Dumplin’ | The Nest
What about you? Is there a book that you read solely based on the cover? What direction did you take with this week’s topic? Share your thoughts below, and link up to your own TTT if you’ve got one!

I totally agree with the covers of Where’d You Go, Bernadette and Landline. There is something really fun about these!

Aristotle and Dante and Bernadette were so books I picked up because of the covers!! I really do it al the time – I am sucker for a good cover. Great picks!

I love the Where’d You Go, Bernadette cover. It totally captures the craziness of that book!
I’ve heard a lot of good things about The Nest – great choices!
Aristotle and Dante always jumps out at me (I guess I love that style of cover design) and same thing with the Winspear covers. I always like those.
What a great way to go with the topic! I’m a total cover-judger and there are many books I knew nothing about and picked up based on the cover alone. Some even became favorites! Of these, I think my favorite cover is “The Hopefuls.” I really like covers with illustrations as opposed to photographs (and it looks like you do too!).
I have Landline, and one day I may actually read it.
I haven’t read Bernadette yet but the cover draws me in every time I see it! I had such a hard time deciding how to handle this topic too, there were just so many things I wanted to explore!
Here’s my TTT https://bookmarkedbliss.wordpress.com/2017/05/02/top-ten-tuesday-cover-freebie/
Landline is one of my fave covers.
