Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Bought/Borrowed Because They Have an Interesting Cover

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.

This Week’s Topic is: Books I Bought/Borrowed Because They Had an Intriguing Cover

I’m so guilty of judging a book by it’s cover. I mean, isn’t that why they make amazing covers? To appeal to potential readers. As a woman who loves to browse at the bookstore and library, I am often drawn to books, initially, because of a captivating cover.

Here are some recent (and a few not so recent) books that I initially chose because I found the cover striking. I’ve read all but two of these books, and, luckily, the stories were just as fabulous as the covers!

If you are interested in learning more about the book, I included links to Goodreads. Just click on the book! πŸ™‚


Well, there you have it. What book covers have captivated you? Have you ever bought or borrowed a book solely based on the cover? Comment below!!

  1. I am also a giant sucker for beautiful, interesting covers. I often will purchase a book just based on that alone. Sometimes it pays off, other times not as much.
