I haven't participated in this one for a while, so i thought i'd try and pick it up again. Plus, it's a nice easy thing to blog about when you're feeling particularly lazy!
Okay, so Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the broke and the bookish where they post a list of top ten picks on various topics. This weeks's topic is...
Top Ten Books I Bought Because of Their Covers!
I'm sorry but i really can't be @rsed going into major detail, so i guess we'll just have to settle with the covers a sentence or two.
The Name of The Star
I'd heard about this on Goodreads, although wasn't planning on buying it. But, when i walked into Target and saw the actual book on the shelves, i couldn't stop by myself from going 'GIMME THE SHINIEEEE!'. I don't know why the insta-love happened, but i'm glad it did!
Die For Me
Another one i didn't plan to buy, and yet somehow i ended up walking out of the store with it. Another awesome instinctual buy from me!
Gorgeous cover, right? Gorgeous insides....not in my mind. I didn't hate it exactly, but after finishing the last page i was left with a burning regret that i had actually spent 20 bucks on this...that was only intensified when it turned up in my library a week later.
The Iron Knight
I was prepared to wait the couple of months for my library to order it in, but after seeing that cover i just knew i had to buy it. As i type this its winging its way towards me, and i'm sure i won't be disappointed.
This one i was umming and ahhing about, though i'm glad i took that leap of faith and bought it in the end. The cover was one of the first things that drew me to Hourglass, along with the rave reviews from fellow book bloggers, and i can safely say i am now one of them.
