Made-Ya-Look Book Covers

Huh?

What?

What's going on?


Books on the cover!

Food on the cover!

 The Eiffel Tower, no matter how small or obscure, on the cover


Almost none or no words



Kids' books better show it all on the cover, as most kids can't read a lot

Promise of action







Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

  1. Oh, I love all of these. Especially Stargirl! I modified this week's topic, though you can see my favorite books with their covers! My favorite YA Books of the decade with covers.

  3. Love the cover of Bibliophile. What's better than books on a book cover? :) And the cover of Starry Nights is beautiful.

  5. I love the cover of Bibliophile, but then, I love their entire website. I also really like the cover of your "currently reading" book--Champagne Baby--with it's purple grapes and Eiffel tower!

    1. Champagne Baby has a beautiful cover, yes, and I'm learning a lot about wine. Perfect for my days here in Paris.

  7. Thank you!! These are great. I haven't really looked well enough at the covers of the books that have come into my house in the last couple of years, as a group, but I want to do that now.

    1. That Leonardo book haunts me. I need to buy a copy of that and turn the face out when people come to visit.

    1. The Eiffel Tower is my weakness. You are right. I could have chosen ten with the Eiffel Tower, and I have in the past: https://readerbuzz.blogspot.com/2018/07/books-with-eiffel-towers-on-cover.html

  10. Yeah, it always surprises me to see book covers that have almost no words on them.
