This weeks Top 5 Tuesday topic is about cover buys, and I love this topic. I am guilty of buying books purely for their covers, before reading the synopsis of a book. If it’s pretty, I have to get it!
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, if you’re interested in participating click here!
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
I avoided Caraval for a few months, because it was everywhere. I wasn’t planning on reading it but after seeing the cover and the engravings underneath, I had to get my hands on it. Thankfully I ended up really enjoying the book, but it’s so beautiful. I didn’t know what engraving I would get underneath the dust jacket, but luckily I got the rose one which matches my name!
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
The cover for this book is stunning in person, and I couldn’t leave the book shop without it. I didn’t know a lot about it even though I’d seen loads of people saying really good things about it but I was sold by the cover. I still need to read it though, I’m just really scared I won’t enjoy it!
City of Bones 10th Anniversary Edition by Cassandra Clare
I owned two copies of City of Bones before I purchased this one, so I didn’t really need it. But after seeing the cover, and how cheap it was (it was £5) I couldn’t resist. It’s now my favourite edition, so I’m glad I bought it!
Midnight Sun by Trish Cook
I have absolutely no idea what this book is about, but the cover is amazing. I have no regrets.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
The Passenger duology have some of my favourite covers ever, and I wasn’t going to read these books until I saw the covers. I love everything about them!
