Top Ten Tuesday

Today I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Covers (I missed doing this one and I thought we could all use a bit of gorgeous in our day)

1. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer.  I absolutely adore this cover.  It's so gorgeous and from the purple hue to the calla lilies dripped with blood it's perfection.  I however despise the paperback version of this novel and I'm not a fan of the Hardcover version of Wolfsbane either.  It looks very exotic danceresque. 

2. Torment by Lauren Kate.  This cover is pure hotness.  I love the black dress and flowing black hair.  It's simply stunning.

3. Splendor by Anna Godbersen.  I have a thing for pretty dresses.  The puffier the better.  Someone should come up with a contest were they recreate the dresses off the covers (or find similar ones) and auction them off or have a giveaway.  That would be the best contest ever!

4. Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen.  I how it connects the flowers, apples, and garden from the story into the cover.  I also like how the title is sections off for this novel.  

5. Insatiable by Lauren Dane.  This is pure eye candy...enjoy!

So I couldn't come up with 10...I know complete and utter failure.  Oh well, I guess I'm either really picky today or just tired but that's all I got for you.  What are some of your favorite covers? 


  1. On my list, Top Ten Books That Should NEVER Be (Or Have Been) Turned Into Movies, I have One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabo Marquez (I say his nickname because I like to fantasize that I actually know him). What initially attracted me to this book was the awesome cover-isn't it sort of sad how we base our initial opinion of books on something visual? It has both a very intriguing depiction of the jungle and an very stylish font.

  2. The Nightshade cover is totally Gorgeous!

    Thanks for sharing your favorites with us, Lisa :)

  3. I haven't read these!! I've heard a lot about them.

  4. Isn't it a travesty with what they did to those Nightshade covers. The originals were so beautiful. I can't believe the awful way they changed them up.

    And, oh my. I may have to use that Insatiable cover for a TOT. That is my kind of eye candy. :P

  5. Well, now, you should come visit my Cover Crazy posts some time, I feature an exciting cover every Monday.

    As for your list, well, it appears you are a fan of pretty dresses and handsome men. I on the other hand prefer more of a illustrative cover than a photographic one.

    Some of my faves are: Imaginary Girls, Witch Eyes and Plain Kate.

  6. I LOOOOOOVE allll of the covers in the Fallen series, but I agree that Torment is the most amazing! Great list! Happy Tuesday!

  7. Yep, I agree that Garden Spells is very beautiful. And I adore the covers of the books in the Luxe series. ;)

  8. Great list! Love all those covers. [: I actually did favorite covers as well for this week.
