Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Titles or Covers That Made Want to Read/Buy the Book. I think I’ve done quite a few title-related TTT lists, so let’s focus on covers! Below are 10 covers that caught my eye and made me NEED the book.
- The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley
- What Should Be Wild by Julia Fine
- The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune
- The Mina Lima edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
- Outlawed by Anna North
- The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
- The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moren-Garcia
- Watch Over Me by Nina LaCour
- Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal
- Cress by Marissa Meyer
What books have you bought because of their covers? Please share your TTT links!

I love the cover for The House in the Cerulean Sea.

I love that one so much! And that author’s new upcoming release is just as cute!
Ooh these all look so pretty. I particularly love Shades of Milk and Honey!
The whole series has really good covers! (And the books are great too!)
Nice list! I’ve never seen that cover of Harry Potter before. It’s really pretty!
I think that HP edition just came out last year — I really love it. All the graphics are by the design firm that did all the graphics for the movies.
I’ve never seen that cover of Harry Potter before, it’s super pretty!

The inside is really pretty too! And they’re releasing the 2nd book this fall I think. Just when I think I have enough editions of HP, another gorgeous one comes along!
There are definitely a lot of really pretty HP covers out there!
What a great list of books. All of those covers are stunning! I especially like that cover of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
When you get the chance, I hope you come over and check out my post: http://readbakecreate.com/15-book-covers-that-scream-summer/
Thanks! I really love that HP edition too — it’s so beautifully put together.
Watch Over Me is such an unusual cover, and I love the Dovekeepers (and own a copy😁)
The cover of The Dovekeepers has always felt so special to me. (And I loved the book too!)
I absolutely got The House in the Cerulean Sea because of the cover! Everyone seems to adore the novel too… I have yet to read it. Hopefully soon. 🙂
I loved the book! I’m just mad now because I bought the paperback, and now he has a new book coming out with another amazing cover, but it’s only in hardcover and I need my books to match!!
You’ve picked covers that really stand out! The Dovekeepers one is gorgeous, and what a fantastic book. I’ve never seen that Harry Potter, and I’m partial to the original art, but this one is really nice. At first I thought the Cerulean Sea cover seemed a little too childish, but I loved the book so much, the cover now seems perfect.
The Dovekeepers really was amazing, wasn’t it? I read it right before a trip to Israel that included a visit to Masada, and having read the book made it even more special. This HP edition just came out last year (I think) — the artwork is from the team that does all the graphics in the movies, and it’s pretty cool to look through.
Cress is an amazing read, love that series!
Oh, me too! The whole series is so good… but I think the cover for Cress is so gorgeous!
I love her!
