Top Ten Tuesdays: Top 10 Book Covers

Today I am once again linking up with The Broke and the Bookish.  Today's topic is Top Ten Favourite Covers of Books I've Read.  This one is a bit difficult for me as I'm not very visual and have a hard time remembering many of the book covers; however, I'll give it a go.

In general, I'm a fan of simple covers; I favour covers with bright covers, a title, and maybe a small illustration.  Anything cheesy or with a Harlequin-feel will pretty much guarantee that I won't pick it up.  I don't want to know too much about the story, and I prefer not to see any faces so I can imagine the characters on my own.  Without further ado, here are my choices:
































When I was working at a book store, we got loads of requests for this book based only on the cover illlustration.  I still remember people walking in saying things like, "I'm looking for this book.  It's orange... with a dog maybe?":

    1. Thanks for stopping by! The Time Traveler's Wife is a fantastic book in addition to having a great cover. It will probably make an appearance on many of my TTT lists. :-)
