This week on Top Ten Tuesday, the powers that be over at The Broke & The Bookish encouraged us to go back and do one of their suggested topics that we missed the first time around. The one that jumped out at me was “Favorite Covers” as I really do often gravitate toward books based on their covers.
Now, have I loved books with covers that didn’t grab me? Yes. Absolutely. And that has helped break my “judging a book by its cover” tendencies. BUT … I will probably still always impulse buy/read a book solely based on the cover. It’s a book nerd thing, I think.
I’ve divided my list today into categories based on prominent features of the covers … and I’m just warning y’all now. There’s way way WAY more than 10 books here. If that bothers you… well… you need to loosen up a bit 😉
Even with way way WAY more than 10 books, there’s no way to include all the covers I love in one post. I know I’ve left some out. If you don’t see your fave cover here, it doesn’t mean I don’t love it … it just means I ran out of room! 😀
Clicking on the covers will take you to Amazon (affiliate links used … doesn’t affect your cost at all).
This section is all about couples – from the adorable to the sweet to the get-a-fan!
This section features our lovely heroines, all the single ladies as it were.
Get your fans out and prepare to swoon over these hunky heroes!
(a hero on the cover is rare in Christian fiction; this category took me much longer to compile than the others. And not because I had to drool over each one. Of course not.)
(sorry… couldn’t resist that last one lol)
This is maybe my favorite section – the illustrated covers!
Also known as … what happens when a toddler gets ahold of your camera 😉 But in these cases, this particular strategy really really works!
These cover models may be a bit shy but the finished results are gorgeous!
My last category is for those covers that aren’t so much about the characters but the settings or the mood.
Whew! This post wore me out lol! But aren’t they so pretty?!?!?! I LOVE BOOK COVERS!!! And in case this wasn’t enough of a selection for you, hop over to Pinterest and check out my Cover Love board!
What about you? What are some of your favorite covers? Let me know!
