Top Ten Tuesday (2)

Top Ten Books Whose Titles Or Covers Made Me Buy It

This is a weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish

Top 5 Awesome Covers I Own:
The Iron Thorn (Iron Codex, #1) A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1) Halo (Halo, #1) Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1) The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

  • The Iron Thorn just captured my attention. The way she's looking and how she is grabbing on to her clothes. Everything just makes me look twice.
  • A Great and Terrible Beauty- I love the corset she is wearing and how it is not just your typical girl in a dress.
  • Halo- The sun peeking in through her wings gives it a touch of light. I love how you can't see who the characters are, just silhouettes.
  • Across the Universe- It's sparkly!!! Plus if you didn't already know, the cover is reversible.
  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer- This could go with the titles that captured my attention too. I really like how it is underwater and also how you can't really tell if he is holding her up or pulling her down.

Top 5 Awesome Titles I Own:
Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side (Jessica, #1) The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) A Scary Scene in a Scary Movie Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1) The Mockingbirds (The Mockingbirds, #1)

  • Jessica's Guide to Dating the Dark Side- It just gives off the sense of being a fun read.
  • The DUFF (designated ugly fat friend)- With a name like that, I just want to pick it right off the shelf
  • A Scary Scene in A Scary Movie (Review here)- I was just really intrigued to find out what this would be about. Sounded like a scary book.
  • Beautiful Creatures- This title just juxtaposes itself. When I think of creatures I don't necessarily think of something beautiful.
  • The Mockingbirds- From this title I get nothing which makes me want to pick it up and find out.
If you want to know about other awesome covers coming out in 2012 go to my cover post here.


  1. I've got A Great and Terrible Beauty and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer on my tbr list :) Nice choices!

    Check out my TTT here!

  2. Across the universe so damn fantastic,I didn't know it at first because I didn't see the couple on the top but when I figured it out, it became one of my favorites! do you own the hardback edition? on the inside of the jacket it so awesome! it a blue print of a space ship, epic cool! (went back & read, opps you know that!)

    Again, I never liked mara dyer cover and frankly I didn't understand why everybody did but that's BEFORE I knew there is a guy behind the girl's body pulling her up! I love it now!! definitely realized why everyone loves it;D

    The DUFF is definitely one unique title!! I cant wait until I read something from Kody Keplinger.

    Jessica's Guide to Dating the Dark Side also sounds awesome, I'm waiting for 2nd book to come out before I read this one though.

    -thank you&come again.
