Top Ten Tuesday: Covers Or Titles That Made Me Want To Buy The Book

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  I'm excited to participate; after all, I make lists FOR EVERYTHING!  This week's topic focuses on books whose titles or covers made me want to buy it. 

1.  Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison- Although I wasn't a fan of this book, I just had to read it based solely on the amazing cover.  Isn't it just gorgeous?

2.  I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend by Cora Harrison- Anything that includes being BFF with Jane Austen is a must read for me.

3.  Moonglass by Jessi Kirby- This cover is simply stunning and initially peaked my interest. I'm glad I read  Moonglass, because it was really good!

4.  Sixteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton- This cover caught my eye; it's the perfect beach read.

5.  Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson- The title of this book is so catchy, I just had to read it!

6.  Halo by Alexandra Adornetto- I LOVE this cover, but unfortunately, I didn't love this book.

7.  Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick- I adore this cover and to this day, it still catches my eye.

8.  Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen- I remember when I bought this book at the bookstore a few summers ago. The sand, the ocean and the flip flops made this one a must read for me.

9.  Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah- I love this cover and I bought this one at the bookstore solely for that reason. Plus, the title makes me think of long, hot summer nights and my childhood.

10.  Sweet Life by Mia King- The cover of this book jumped out at me as the perfect beach read. Once I found out that it takes place in Hawaii, I knew I had to read it!

So which book covers or titles initially peaked your interest in a particular book? Let me know what you think!


  1. Oooo yes on Firefly Lane! I've been wanting to buy that one just because of the jar on the cover. In truth, I adore all covers with mason jars.

  2. Wow, you're right - the cover for Hush, Hush is extremely eyecatching! Great list :)

  3. Moonglass is most definitely stunning to look at...same with Hush, Hush! :D

  4. Juju- Isn't it a great cover? I love mason jars too.

    Kat- It's so eye-catching! It's one of my favorites.

    Lea- I completely agree. Moonglass is gorgeous!

    Thanks for stopping by, guys!

  5. I also loved the cover of Tris and Izzie. I ended up not reading the book after finding out more about it and reading all the negative reviews. I also liked the cover of Moonglass and Sixteenth Summer, perfect for summertime reading. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour is a fantastic cover too. Great list!

  6. I just came across your blog from In the Hammock. I can see I'm going to be obsessed, and adding to my book list based on your reviews could become a little out of hand. :)

    Great site!
