Top ten Tuesday #19

Top ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The broke and the bookish
This weeks list is:

Top Ten Books Whose Titles Or Covers Made Me Buy It

I don't usually add pictures but I think the theme this week needs them for illustration.

Hush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.
This one stood out a mile the day I walked into the bookshop for a browse, I was set on buying it before I even read what it was about.
 Wood angel by Erin Bow (AKA Plain Kate)
Another one I found whilst having a browse through the bookshop for something new to buy.
 The reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell.
This is a more recent purchase, I spotted it on my Amazon recommendations and the gorgeous hauting cover and interesting cover made me want to learn more.
 Where Demons fear to tread by Stephenie Chong.
It was more the title that got me with this one, what kind of place would a demon be scared to go!?
 Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini.
Wouldn't you! That orange/yellow colour stands out so much and I love pictures of lightening so the background is a big plus for me.
Die for me by Amy Plum.
 The colour of this is gorgeous and I love the pattern to.
 Blood and ice by Robert Masello.
This caught my eye because the cover is downright creepy! Even the descrption is creepy.
Eyes like stars by Lisa Manchev.
 The artwork on this cover is so gorgeous I'd hang it as wall art, it's definitely the what attracted me to adding this one to my virtual basket.
Fallen by Lauren Kate.
I love how dark and gothic this is and I wanted to know why she was crying.
Knife by R.J. Anderson (AKA Faery rebels:Spell hunter)
I just loved the defiant little faery on this cover.


  1. I had 3 of the same books on my list as you did on yours. Though I had the US cover for Starcrossed! Great picks!

    I love the cover for Fallen, but I actually bought the book based on the subject and hadn't even seen the cover. I actually love the cover for Torment even more than Fallen, but bought that also not because of its cover.

    Blood & Ice sounds totally creepy. And the girls eye is actually freaking me out a little.

    I love all of Lisa Mantchev's covers for these books. They are sort of fantastical but beautiful at the same time.

    Great choices!

  2. I was going to add Hush Hush to my list too! Love your picks!

  3. Awesome picks! I also have Die For Me in my list I just love the cover, awesome books you have here.

    Here's my Top Ten Books I've Bought because of the cover!

  4. For some reason, I just don't like that cover of Starcrossed. I have it and I kind of wish I had the other one. I do like that cover of Die for Me, as well as the covers for Lisa Mantchev's books. :)

  5. I have Hush, Hush, Die For Me and Fallen on my list too!

  6. Fallen made my list but I've yet to read it... Starcrossed, Die For Me and Eyes Like Stars all have beautiful covers!

  7. I love them especially Wood Angel.
