Top Ten Tuesday: Oh So Pretty

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme 
This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is favorite graphic novels or comics (or even picture books). Since I don't read any of those, or at least not enough to compile a top ten list, I'm sticking with the visual theme but going with some of my favorite book covers. Who doesn't love a fabulous book cover?

*Note: These are all books I have read, not just random covers I like.

Have you read any of these books? 
Do you pay attention to covers or are you only concerned with what's inside?

  1. I WISH I could say I only pay attention to what's inside but then I'd be fibbing! I will always love ACOTAR and Shatter Me's covers. It's funny that this week's topic was graphic novels because I actually just started reading one last night that my friend gave me! It's called Gloom Cookie and I almost NEVER read graphic novels for fun! One of my English courses this semester though is ALL comic books. I'm not sure how well I'll like it but I'm trying to keep an open mind!
    Great picks for this week's topic Tanya!

    1. The ACOTAR and Shatter Me covers are sooo gorgeous! It's like SJM and Tahereh Mafi won the book cover lottery. :) There's a course on comic books?! I guess I shouldn't be surprised (I've heard there are courses on Madonna and Kanye at some schools) but I find that so funny. I haven't heard of Gloom Cookie. I hope you'll enjoy it!

  4. The covers when all together make them even more visually appealing! I really want to read The Crown's Game.

    1. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a collage of pretty book covers on your wall?! :)
      I hope you'll try The Crown's Game, Danica. I listened to it on audio and loved it so much I ran out and bought the hardcover.

    1. The GoodReads rating for The Infinite Moment of Us are pretty dismal (like a 3.2) but for some reason it just clicked with me and I really enjoyed it.

  9. I did not do a list today for myself, I asked my daughter if she wanted to help and list her favorite books!
    I never read a comic book.So The only ones I read were the VA and Percy Jackson graphic novels. But we did something a little different. Allyson added some comics she read on her list.

  11. I haven't read those books. I do pay attention to covers, that's what grabs my attention. If the blurb is also interesting, then I will pick up the book. :) ~Aleen

    1. I've never bought a book solely based on the cover (it has to be something I'm actually excited to read) but a good cover definitely catches my eye! :)
