Every Tuesday, The Broke and the Bookish hosts a meme called 'Top Ten Tuesday'

Top Ten Favorite Book Covers Of Books I've Read

I really had to search my Goodreads 'read' list for these and I realized that when I entered most of the books I read before I had a Goodreads into the system, I hadn't known I could choose which edition or cover I had read so most of them are weird ones that I've never seen in person. Therefore my search was a little difficult. With all the beautiful covers that are out these days, my list probably seems pretty boring but these are book covers that I have read and love.


The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

This cover is just seriously so gorgeous!
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

I'm a lover of trees, ivy, vines, etc so this one just stood out to me.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel
I really love how this cover tells a story all on it's own and makes you want to read more to find out about the boy on a boat with a tiger.
The Charmed Sphere by Catherine Asaro
The covers for the books in this series are all done by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, an extremely talented artist.  
How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff
Isn't this beautiful?!
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Finch
I bought this book because of the cover and title when it first came out. I loved the story, too, though.
The Girl with the Glass Feet by Ali Shaw
Another one with simple nature elements that I just can't help but love.
 The Whispering Mountain by Joan Aiken
I just REALLY love Charles Vess' artwork.
Od Magic by Patricia A. McKillip
All of Patricia A. McKillip's lovely novel covers are by artist Josephine Wall. Every cover is specially made FOR the book and incorporates some of the magic that is within the book itself. I highly recommend reading her fantasy novels. She is one of my favorite authors.

The Alchemist by Michael Scott
 The covers of these books are what drew me to them. Nothing spectacular but this will do for the tenth choice. :)
