Top Ten Covers (of books that I have read)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Hey there! It's Tuesday again so that means... another Top Ten Tuesday!!!

This week's topic is 'Best Covers' and to narrow it down a bit I've decided to do my favourite covers of only books that I have read. So, here's my list!

     Sister, Missing by Sophie Mckenzie...This caught my eye the moment I saw it. I love how the first thing you see is the girl's face staring out at you, but on a second glance you can make out a sideways view of her, of which the photo of her face is just making up her hair. 

     Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien...I think it's really cool how the words on the front make up a profile of a girl's face

    Along For the Ride by Sarah Dessen...What is there to say? All of Sarah Dessen's covers are just so pretty! I had a hard time of choosing out of this one, Lock and Key, The Truth About Forever and Just Listen. I think it's really nice how on all the covers lots of cute little things are put together to make one big pretty picture.

    Across the Universe by Beth Revis... I really like how the two silhouetted profiles look quite vague at first but the nyou look closer and see them more clearly. Also, all those blueish, pinky purple colours at the bottom are so pretty!

    The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins... Personally, this is my favourite of all the Hunger Games covers out there. (Maybe because it's the copy I first saw and read, and the copy I own but yeah...) Anyway, really this just makes the list because of how the feeling it invokes in me whenever I see it. I LITERALLY LOVE the Hunger Games (!!!!!!!!!) as I'm sure a LOT of us do (I honestly could talk forever about the Hunger Games, but I won't bore you with that right now) and whenever I catch a glimpse of someone reading it or catch someone saying the words 'Hunger' and 'Games' in the same sentence I feel like jumping up and down like a mad person. Sometimes I do jump up and down like a mad person. Sometimes. Because I'm not that mad.

    Let's Get Lost by Sarra Manning

    Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick

    Flyaway by Lucy Christopher

     Splendour by Anna Godbersen

     Stolen by Lucy Christopher



    1. I have to say, I like the US cover for Birthmarked better than the UK one, although it's really good looking too. Have you read Prized yet?

      My TTT is Look At Those Pretty Legs: YA Book Covers

    2. There are definitely some really awesome covers up there! I have to say, I don't care for a couple of them but it's always interesting to see how opinions differ on this sort of thing :) Great choices and happy reading!


    3. I think the Across the Universe cover is really fitting, love it

    4. You have some of my very favourite books on that list. Good choices :)
