Top Ten Tuesday (3)

Top Ten Books Whose Titles or Covers Made Me Buy It

1. Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

I remember picking this up in Barnes and Noble back before I started blogging because the title on the spine intrigued me. Wondrous Strange. That title is so magical and mysterious, I just had to know what the book was about! Plus, once I actually looked at the cover it was love. The cover is gorgeous, as well. Luckily, the book is just as fantastic as I had hoped!

2. Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison

Who wouldn't be intrigued by a book with that kind of crazy title? Love this series and the titles are just perfect!

3. Ice by Sarah Beth Durst

I still haven't read this book yet, but I get chills each time I glance at the book on my shelf. The cover is so intriguing and mystical- I can't believe I haven't read it yet!

4. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I read this book a few years before the huge hype broke out and I originally had only picked it up because the cover looked cool. It was something dark and different among the other YA covers in my library at the time and I was inclined to check it out just because of that.

5. Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski

Even before I saw the cover or summary I was dying to read this simply because of the awesome title. I adored this book and the title suits it perfectly.

6. The Luxe by Anna Godbersen

This is the only one in this series that I have read (something I need to change!) and I love, love, love this cover and would want it on my shelf no matter what. The dress the model is wearing is beautiful and the whole cover set-up is fantastic and eye-catching.

7. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

This is another book I have yet to read (and need to ASAP!), but something about the cover is just eerily fantastic. There are so many new YA covers with water on them and I am loving this trend!

8. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

I didn't purchase this one, since I got a finished copy for review. If I hadn't though, I would have bought it because the title and cover made it seem like the perfect Halloween read!

9. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

I first picked this book up because the cover stood out to me- it was very simple, but eye-catching.

10. I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

This series is one of my favorites and I originally bought it at Barnes and Noble because the title caught my eye. I love this series and the titles are always perfect!


  1. I agree on the Luxe, thought the book is quite good, I would buy it just to put it on my shelve, so pretty! I love the Envy cover the most, though!

    Awesome picks!

  2. I definitely bought The Luxe for the cover - it's just so gorgeous! ;)

  3. Great list- I love The Luxe covers....they are all so gorgeous. Good idea included Anna Dressed in Blood- that would be the perfect book for my "Spooky Reads" display at school.

  4. You picked out some really great books! I agree with Ally Carter's book and Anna Dressed in blood!
