For TTT this week, we have a topic regarding covers. TTT, or Top Ten Tuesday, is a feature in The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, we get a fabulous topic to discuss on our blogs. This week is about covers. Rather than focusing on all of my favorite covers, I am going to focus on those on my TBR with girls on them.
10. Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal
I just ordered this book, but it was somewhat tricky to find the cover I wanted (this one here. The original one is so ugly).
Seriously, though, the older cover is really ugly.
At any rate, I am very excited to get a copy of this series, because: 1) Jane Austen style of writing, 2) MAGIC! 3) Cool writer, too. Like, I have been looking through her YouTube channel, and she is learning French (like me!), she’s a puppeteer. Her advice video on self editing gave me life.
I cannot wait to meet her characters.
9. Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
This author has been blessed by the cover lords. I just adore all her covers. She writes steampunk, mainly. Some of it is YA and some is Adult. I got most of her work already, and I am going to binge read all of it. She is such a charming lady, too. She dresses up for interviews and conventions.
I’m hoping that one day, I can be a writer who creates fun stories. Gail Carriger is definitely someone I look up to in that regard. Also, purple is a dear color to me, so this cover just gives me life.
8. These Broken Stars by Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman
Look at the sweet couple and the lovely stars! Oh, I am so thrilled to have this trilogy. While I haven’t read Illuminae yet, I am equally as excited to read this book.
The girl’s dress is so dreamy. Of course, there is also fear in me as I see this cover, because I doubt the writer’s will make things easy for these two lovely people.
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t this trilogy a companion series or is that Illuminae?
I hope the characters are as charming as they look.
7. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I believe that’s a girl on the cover, and I like her stance a lot. All I know about this book is that it has to do with great female friendships, which is the reason why I got this book and its sequel.
Friendship is something I value a lot in my life (literary and personal). I like reading about it and living it.
6. Splintered by AG Howard
Alice in Wonderland inspired literature is not something I normally gravitate towards. The first time I read Alice in Wonderland was in grad school. It didn’t really leave much of an impression until I got diagnosed with my mental illnesses. Then, I appreciated it a lot. This book touches on the idea of Alice having a mental illness. Plus, this is a generational thing, and I am excited to see a dark and fascinating Wonderland.
LOOK AT THAT COVER, THOUGH!!
5. The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
I heard some mixed things about this book, but whatever, I like Richelle Mead enough to give it a try. I’m fascinated with the idea of three different perspectives of the same story. It is a challenging way to tell a story. Some would say it is easy or a money grab, but I remain rather hopeful. Richelle Mead hasn’t failed me before.I tend to like her writing.
4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Laini Taylor is a remarkable writer. I know this much when I read some of her first book. So, I have been gathering her work. She is also blessed by the cover lords. Her books covers are fascinating and striking. I am a fan. Hopefully, I can pick this trilogy soon.
3. Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes
Everyone who reads this series hates Lucia. Naturally, I am reading the series for various reasons: 1) Lucia Protection Patrol, 2) Magnus, 3) Conflicting companions, 4) Fantasy, 5) Cover love.
Perhaps I’ll dislike Lucia, too, but I doubt it, really. Look how cool she is. I like her already. *Protects Lucia*
2. The Selection by Kiera Cass
To be quite honest, I have crap self esteem and put this book away out of fear of judgement. But, I got over it, and got the rest of the trilogy. From what I hear, no one likes the daughter of the couple from this series. So, I am avoiding those books. But, The Selection sounds like a cute engaging story. I am looking forward to it. Plus, Kiera Cass is just the sweetest person. Her interviews on YouTube are adorable and charming.
1. The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross
Ever since I have The Infernal Devices, I have been very interested in steampunk. I picked up this series by Kady Cross recently. From what I gather, the stories involve a variety of characters with steampunk-y things in their lives. I am curious to see how the girls communicate and how they collaborate (I hope they collaborate!).
What are some of your favorite covers on your TBR? Any of them feature girls? Share in the comment. I look forward to chat with you in comments.
