Another Top Ten Tuesday for you! Since The Broke & The Bookish do a Freebie Tuesday, I went ahead and took a Top Ten List from a past Tuesday of theirs (Since I have nothing to give for free...except my poor wit and sass).
The topic today thus shall be: Favourite Book Covers
[Bonus favourite Collector's Editions at the bottom!]
This book. This book. It just does things to me. Unfortunately, in my haste to just buy this book and get Mara off my back about reading The Book Thief and why I hadn't read it yet and when I was going to read it, I bought a cover that I didn't really like.
It was symbolic, yes, but when I saw THIS cover, I wanted to eat the pages out of my original Book Thief book and go out and buy this one. It's...*joyous sigh*.
This book is currently on my To-Be-Read Shelf, which is hinting at me that I need to hurry up and start going through them before I buy a whole stack of books *Sideways glance and shoves boxes of books away from view with my foot*
Usually not being a fan of having dramatic girls on the covers or just generally people on the covers posing, I surprisingly like this one. Even the font of the title is beautiful and so mysterious and intriguing. It's a large part of actually why I bought the book from the thrift store, besides that it has a really provoking blurb!
My brother had the original covers, the ones that cost heaps now. He was the sibling that was the first one introduced to Harry Potter, and it hasn't been until recently that I finally went out, bought the ENTIRE matching set in one transaction, and have begun reading
[I am currently reading Half-Blood Prince!]
But this cover set just grabbed me and forcefully shook me for my money because the spines combined create a portrait of Hogwarts. I'm a sucker for details like that. A SUCKER, I TELLS YA.
This is an interesting one, and one that I'm not sure why I added in the first place. Maybe it's because a Astronaut is sitting on a couch but the carpet looks like the moon's surface and there are stars on the wall and for some reason that title just screams at me as, 'HURRY UP AND READ ME YOU WIMP! I'M ALL ABOUT SPACE AND STUFF. AWWYISS!'
I also really like the colour blue. It's my favourite.
Ever since I saw this cover on Dymocks in the YA section, I was so interested but never picked it up [The poorness is strong with this one]
but recently someone, in their excitement, blabbed to me about how amazing it was and that it was shocking that I hadn't even bothered to read it yet. Even more, I didn't know it was a trilogy!
The entire series has a beautiful cover scheme going on of the female protagonist on the cover always in water, and I love repetition and things match.
*Deep inhale* this book. So so good. It's velvety red, it's cold and unforgiving black. It sits in my bookcase just looking adoringly at me even though the book is so much more about first impressions. There's even an umbrella on the spine *Giggles madly* ish so pretty.
I've had this book for ages, and finished the trilogy years ago, but it always resonates with me whenever people ask me for recommendations on trilogies. I particularly love THIS SET of covers, as opposed to the other one because when you angle it towards the light, hidden words will flash on the cover (If you can see it in this picture) and it just connects with the books plot so well.
I also really like red. It's my second favourite colour.
I have no idea what this book is about, it sits on my shelf and I keep putting off reading it, but the reason why I grabbed it and possibly shoved someone out of the way from doing it, is because the cover is so haunting. The little girl's ghost-like dress, the blackness, the sparkles, whAT DOES IT MEAN?!
I have the whole set. It's so pretty. Oh ma gosh it's so pretty. The black matches the blackness in my soul
Warm Bodies is such a fantastic read, and completely and utterly different from the book (Which is an okay thing!)
There are two covers, and I love both of them, but this one with the white contrasting with the red 'brain stem' is so morbidly beautiful.
I can do without the Stephanie Meyer review though, I really could.
Collector's Editions [Bonus]
*Cries buckets and buckets* It's so beautiful and artistic and so in line with the story and the fact that the spine is the match box and...*Crawls into the corner and holds self while crying and repeating It's so beautiful*
I thought I had gotten a really amazing cover, but I stumbled across this one on my Pinterest and my mouth actually dropped open. While some people might struggle with reading what the actual title and author's name is, I love how chaotic and yet serene it is.
And that's what the book is all about.
I saw this on one of the bookstagram accounts that I follow and I couldn't breathe. It's so pretty, and yet I've only read one of Fitzgerald's books and that was only a couple of pages, not even the entire thing...
But it's so pretty *Squishes cheeks*
