Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
I hope everyone is having a great week. I’m currently in Sydney, Australia probably melting my little British head off. I’ve actually written this post a whole 4 days early and scheduled it! First time for everything!
This weeks topic is meant to be about our top ten graphic novels/comics/picture books, but I’ve never read a graphic novel or comic and I think the last time I looked at a picture book I was still in nappies. So instead I decided to tweak the theme slightly (still keeping with the ‘visuals’ theme) and instead I’m going with book covers.
I decided to keep it to book covers I love from books I’ve read in the past year because otherwise this post would be a lot longer. So here they are, my top ten…
This is Where it Ends – I really love black and white covers with a dash of colour and this one has to be one of my favourites. The innocence of the chalk which explodes into dust from a bullet. It just captures the story perfectly in such a simple image.
Red Queen & Glass Sword – A set of seemingly plain covers with a dash of colour that I LOVE. (Can you tell yet that I was a photography student). The whole thing is quite creepy really but so darn cool!
The Next Together – This book features 4 different timelines which is perfectly captured in this totally cool cover, plus I find an epic gif for it which is super cool too!
The Sin Eaters Daughter & The Sleeping Prince – I love it when series stick to a theme with their book covers and these ones are gorgeous! The artwork of the jars it incredible. The only thing that bugs me is that the title fonts don’t match, but otherwise PERFECT!
Rebel of the Sands – A beautiful cover for an incredible book. I really love the blue and gold theme with this one, it really fits with the desert theme and the character of the Blue Eyed Bandit.
Never Never Part 3 – I loved the covers for this entire series: so simple and yet so effective. The different positions of the hands on the cover mirror the story within very cleverly. I would totally frame these and put them on my wall!
