Ten Books I Almost Want to Read Based Off Their Covers

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Visual, but since I really don't read graphic novels or any other visual type of books, I thought I'd go with book covers.

Although, I have to say that none of these books are on my TBR list because of the descriptions or because I've not clicked with the authors in the past.

  1. The Talon series by Julie Kagawa - I've just not enjoyed her books in the past, but I love these covers.
  2. Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard - I had these on my TBR list at one time, but some of the reviews I've seen just kind of turned me off.
  3. The Ashfall series by Mike Mullin - While the book covers look awesome, I became aware that one of my triggers is involved in this series so I do try to avoid those when I can.
  4. Blood of Gods and Royals series by Eleanor Herman - I liked the description for book 1, but this was another that after I saw some reviews decided that it's probably not for me.
  5. The First Days by Rhiannon Frater - After reading Pretty When She Dies by Rhiannon Frater I removed her other books from my list.
  6. Skylark by Meagan Spooner - I've actually enjoyed Meagan Spooner in the past and these sound interesting, but they're just not on my TBR list because I don't think I have time to get around to them.
  7. Gravity series by Melissa West - This one was on my TBR list at one time, but like the previous series, I just don't see myself ever getting around to this series despite the pretty covers.
  8. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi - Honestly, there's not much of a reason why I don't have this one on my TBR list. I just had to make a decision on whether to add this series or not and even though I like the covers, I chose not to add it.
  9. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton - I have to say that I like the cover for book 2 much better than book 1. And that's probably a big reason why this never made it to my TBR list. I didn't add book 1 because I didn't love the cover, so book 2 never made it because book 1 didn't.
  10. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir - Same as # 8.

So what do you guys think? Are any of these worthy of their beautiful covers that I might need to reconsider adding to my TBR list? Let me know!


  1. Legacy of Kings, An Ember in the Ashes, and Rebel of the Sands are all excellent! :)

  2. You make me want to do some book shopping on Amazon! :P

    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.
