Top Ten Tuesday: Covers That Made Want to Read the Book

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks theme is: Covers That Made Want to Read the Book

I’m breaking this theme in 2 parts, Covers That Made Me Want To Read The Book – Books I Haven’t Read Yet and Books I Have Read!

Its hard to narrow it down to just 10 because there are so many covers I love! Covers with illustrations and strong typography always catch my attention.

Books I haven’t read yet:

Dreams Lie Beneath by Rebecca Ross – This gorgeous cover is an actual painting and its stunning! I love covers that are actual real life paintings – I don’t see that too often. Releases November 2, 2021.

Ride With Me by Lucy Keating – This cover is just so CUTE! I’ve loved Lucy’s past book Dreamology so of course I’m excited for this one! It comes out June 2022 – which feels SO far away!

Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao – I will never be able to unsee the mock cover the author did with the character holding a dual disk from Yu-Gi-Oh on her arm. Sorry not sorry. But I do love this cover! This comes out September 21, 2021 and I have a Netgalley arc I hope to read before that.

Small Favors by Erin Craig – This one was just released last week on July 27 and I can’t wait to pick it up – the lush flowers and bee motif caught my eye! I honestly don’t know much about this one and I want to go in without knowing too much.

Bright Ruined Things by Samantha Cohoe – I LOVE the bold typography on this one! It’s in your face and the gold contrasts beautifully with the blues. This one comes out October 26, 2021.

Books I have read:

The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon – If Rachel’s name wasn’t enough to catch my attention, this cover certainly would. Love the bold illustrations and you immediately know this is about radio. I enjoyed this one a lot.

House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland – This cover is super creepy and not what I usually go for, but it caught my eye and drew me in – this cover lets you know this story will be dark. It’s one of my favorites of 2021!

More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn – This was the first Erin Hahn book and I loved it! I love the use of primary colors and simple lines and bold text. This cover is just -chefs kiss-!

Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke – This is an older one – and I love the bold use of the color orange. I don’t see many orange covers. And all the cameras around Jane! And the sillhoutte of Jane! The script font! Love this.

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett – I love the overlapping use of colors that look like random shapes at first, but when you look closer, you see its faces intertwined. I think this cover is genius.

What is one of your all time favorite covers?
I can’t wait to see everyones posts this week!
