Top Ten Tuesday: Compelling Covers

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over @ The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic is: Top Ten Books Whose Cover Made Me Buy It

I'm just going to let these gorgeous covers speak for themselves. 
1. Wither by Lauren DeStefano (and Fever is just as incredible!)
2. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
3. A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan (I knew absolutely nothing about this book, but picked it up because it  looked like this!)

4. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

5. Possess by Gretchen McNeil

6. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

7. Wildefire by Karsten Knight (Although, this one I would have read even if the cover was terrible...)
8. Die for Me by Amy Plum (Let's face it, the title is a touch morbid - but the cover is stunning)
9.  Hourglass by Myra McEntire (honestly, would not have gone near this book without this cover, but that would have been a serious tragedy)
10. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - going with the inverse here. Both the title and the cover turned me off this book. It took me a long time to give into all the awesome reviews and get past the cover to pick up this book. And it was so worth it.

  1. Starcrossed is so pretty -- I really need to buy that book! I love the Wither cover as well. And Hourglass, which I totally forgot to mention on my post.

  2. I had Wither and Die For Me on my list, too. I chose Lola and the Boy Next Door over Anna and the French Kiss because I like the way that the two people on the cover of Lola are posed and I love the contrast in their appearances.

  3. Pretty covers! I especially like the Long Long Sleep one.

  4. Wither's cover is gorgeous. Its been one of my favorites for awhile. And I agree, Fever is just as pretty. I love the merry-go-round horse on that one. I tend to pick books up just based on covers without really knowing what the story is about. I can't help loving the prettiness!
