Alright, so it’s not Tuesday, it’s Friday – I got behind this week. Anyways, my friend Erin and I decided to do a “Top Ten Tuesday” book list for our blogs. The basic concept is we will each take turns posting our “Top Ten” books for a specific category of our choice. Make sense? If it doesn’t, I’m sure you’ll catch on.
This week, I decided to do my “Top Ten Favorite Book Covers”. Granted, I’m sure I could pick more than ten – and I’m sure that throughout my life, I’ll look back at this list and cringe at some of my choices; however, at this point in my life, the following covers are my “Top Ten Favorite Book Covers”. (Disclaimer: This list is in no specific order- that’d be too difficult).
1.) Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close:
Loved this book and I love the cover just as much.
2.) The Bell Jar:
I am about half way through this book and I’ve enjoyed it so far. Fun Fact: I Actually picked the book up because of its cover (that, and I find Sylvia Plath to be really fascinating).
3.) Catch 22:
Oh Joseph Heller, how I envy you – not only because you wrote Catch-22 but, also because my boyfriend loves you more than me for brilliantly writing it. I’ve yet to read this novel (it’s on my list) but I absolutely love the cover.
This book cover is just as creepy as the book. One of my FAVORITES by the way.
5.) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time:
I have yet to read this book (actually,I may start it this week) but I own it and I love the cover!
6.) Never Let Me Go:
I find the girl on this cover to be so alluring. I’ve not yet read this book but the cover makes me want to.
I love the artwork on the cover and throughout this book.
8.) American Psycho:
I’m not sure why exactly I like this book cover? I thought the book was absolutely horrifying (I actually didn’t finish).Nonetheless, I like the cover.
Charming cover art.
10.) A Clockwork Orange:
Such a strange book. The cover fits perfectly.
