Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Book Covers I'd Use As Art

I thought it'd be fun to do this week's The Broke & The Bookish Top Ten topic, since I haven't done one in a while and it won't require much writing lol. (Lazy) So let's get to it! Here are some of my favorite book covers that I'd love to have as artwork.

Let's start with a favorite set of covers, the Soul Screamers series. These are the volumes that include 2 books and a short story in each and are such a good deal at around $10 each. And okay, yes, it's one of those covers with a pretty girl in a long, sweeping dress that has nothing to do with the plot. But...look how pretty!! :) I've only read the first 2 volumes so far (review for vol 1) but really enjoy them.

Next up, some random covers that I love:

Backwards Compatible by Sarah Daltry & Pete Clark -I'm going to review this soon, but it's a very cute book about nerd love and the cover just pops.

The Girl With the Cat Tattoo by Theresa Weir -kitty! In a hat! Love!!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell -my sister bought me this for my birthday last weekend and I'm so happy I now have my own copy to read and look at and pet. (Okay, that was a little creepy.)

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson -I've said this before, but this cover just screams "movie poster" to me.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern -love the crisp black and silver and red.

Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore -the blue and the keys would go perfectly in my room!

I also love the covers of the Willow Falls series by Wendy Mass. They are so bright and cheerful, they'd go great in a children's playroom or something like that.

And of course, I had to pull up some of my favorite Baby-Sitters Club covers...this is just up to what I've read so far, it'll probably change later! (If I ever get my lazy butt back to reading them hah!) Do you have a favorite out of these? Or one I should be looking forward to? (Click to make bigger)


  1. Stellar list -- strangely I totally get you on the BSC covers, too! I always found them oddly compelling and detailed. Also love the Rainbow Rowell, and I've never heard of Soul Screamers, but I'll have to check it out!

    Thanks for sharing your list!

    1. Thank you! Yes, check out Soul Screamers. It's a great series.

  2. I'd forgotten about The Night Circus in my own list, but it really does have one of the most gorgeous and distinctive covers.

    1. The whole book is really lovely, wouldn't it be awesome to have an illustrated version some day? Ooh, a pop-up book! Lol...thanks for stopping by!

  3. Beautiful covers! I love the covers of the Soul Screamers series.
