Top 10 Tuesday 15th September

on September 15, 2020

Hello and welcome back to another edition of Top 10 Tuesday, hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s topic is a “cover freebie”. Freebies are always a bit hard for me, there are times when I can easily name a million books that would make up any number of freebie type posts but the second I sit down to try and think of a “freebie” topic or find books that fit into one, my mind goes immediately blank lol. So I’m just going to go a bit easy here.

Top 10 Covers From Books I’ve Read In 2020

1. With The Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo. 

I love the vibes of this cover and if you look at it, you keep seeing new things, all of which give you more clues about the plot and the characters and what’s important in the book.

2. Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata. 

This cover is so incredibly realistic. I keep wanting to reach out and pick up the character’s name tag, which looks like a 3D object just sitting on the book!

3. The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood. 

This is a beautiful cover – I knew nothing about this book before it arrived but I wanted to know what that was on the cover, how it was relevant, etc.

4. Gulliver’s Wife by Lauren Chater. 

I find this cover really tactile too.

5. The Octopus And I by Erin Hortle. 

I’m not entirely sure why I like this one so much – it’s sort of whimsical and fun (not a realistic looking octopus) but the book itself is definitely more serious (and does involve a real octopus).

6. The Sin Eater by Megan Campisi.

I borrowed this book solely because of the cover – I think it’s amazing.

7. The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel

I really like this cover too – the moodiness of the colours really help set the scene for the isolation of the hotel.

8. The Christmas Lights by Karen Swan. 

I’m an Aussie so the whole Christmas in the snow thing is such a strange concept but I really like reading winter Christmas books. This one is set in remote Norway over the Christmas period and this one gives such amazing vibes from the cover.

9. Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin.

Love this cover and especially how the serpent makes up the ampersand in the title.

10. The Last Migration by Charlotte McConaghy

This cover is also crazy atmospheric. It stretches from the Arctic to Antarctica and honestly, this could be close to either.

So, here are my 10 favourite covers from the books I’ve read so far in 2020. Have you read any of them? If not…..do any of these covers make you want to pick them up?
