Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art. I’ve done other top 10 lists with favorite covers (and even one with scary covers) — so I’ll try to come up with 10 “work of art” book covers without repeating myself… too much.

1) The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker


2) Mokoka’i by Alan Brennert


3) Impossible by Nancy Werlin


4) The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman


5) Sacré Bleu by Christopher Moore

6) Meet Me in the Moon Room by Ray Vukcevich
(I haven’t read the book, but I do love the cover!)

7) The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien (original edition with Tolkien’s cover art)


8) Any of the new series of covers for Susanna Kearsley books, especially:

 9) The covers from any of the Fables series volumes, especially:

10) The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan
(Two different covers, and I like them both!)

  1. Oh wow, I love those Susanna Kersley book covers! And that version of the Hobbit is always one I’ve thought had lovely artwork!

    • I was really torn between this Hobbit version and some of the other really pretty Tolkien editions that I’ve seen. Really, any will do!

    • I think the Golem cover will be one of my permanent favorites! And it’s nice to know that a book that I loved so much also has a cover that I love. 🙂
