Top Ten Favorite Covers

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I've seen this meme on several different blogs and thought it sounded fun. Some past lists are quite creative which is why I decided to join in on this. For example a year ago they did: Top Ten Characters you'd want as family members

This week however the topic is Top Ten Favorite Covers. Which might be difficult for me because once I read a book I really don't care what the cover is. Although I am guilty of judging a book by it's cover when deciding whether to read it or not.

I'm so grateful for Goodreads, this would have taken much, much longer otherwise:

There is no order of preference. Just alphabetical order. :-) Here's the run down:
  • Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry. A very nice cover and a fun story too! Read my review
  • The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery. Love this story. And the cover.
  • Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz. Lovely cover and captivating story. I read it last fall and plan on writing the review soon.
  • The Damascus Way by Davis Bunn & Janette Oke. I liked some books in this series, can't remember if this was one of the good or not-so-good ones though. The entire series has beautiful covers.
  • Hearts Awakening by Delia Parr. A cute story that I picked up a second time based on the cover (I'd forgotten that I had read it a few years prior).
  • Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw. A childhood/youth favorite. And it has a fun cover.
  • Moonblood by Anne Elisabeth Stengl. This one is coming out in April! All the covers in this series are absolutely lovely.
  • The Second Duchess by Elisabeth Loupass. I haven't read this yet and can't remember why I labeled it to-read. But I really like the cover. Which is why it's here. 
  • These Happy Golden Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Another childhood favorite. My sister wore out the biding because she "read" this book so much - just because she liked the cover and pictures so much.
  • Winnetou by Karl May. Loved Karl May's books when I was a teen. And the Winnetou series is one of his best. And this is my favorite cover of that series.

 Now hop on over to The Broke and Bookish to see other blogger's favorite covers.


    1. I remember Mara daughter of the Nile as a very dark, serious book.

    2. Well there was mystery and intrigue, but I wouldn't call it dark and serious. Maybe you should read it again. :-)
