This is a monthly post where I share some of the books that I’ve found through fellow bloggers that I HAD to add to my wishlist immediately. I’m hoping I’ll look back on these posts and remember to buy/request the books (wishful thinking!).
It’s been a couple of months since I posted one of these because I’ve been trying to decrease not increase my TBR pile. However, I had to make a note of the following books because I WANNNNNNNNT so bad!
Click on the links to go to the original posts.
Found on:Fourth Street Review Why: All of it. The title, the cover, and the best opening line! (Expect strong language if you click on the link!)
Found on: Books, Bones & Buffy Why: I was sold on the cover and this description: “Terrifying, horrific, gruesome, unputdownable.”
Found on:Shelf Love Why: This sounds like a Welsh Alice Hoffman; real issues doused in magic.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the image to visit them) who pick a different topic each week.
This week the topic is Covers That You’d Frame as Pieces of Art.
So I wouldn’t necessarily want all of these hanging on my walls, but here are some my favourite book covers.
The End of Mr Y – Scarlett Thomas
Zombies Vs Unicorns – Holly Black et al
Graceling – Kristin Cashore
The Princess Bride – William Goldman
The Assassin’s Blade – Sarah J. Maas
Words Once Spoken – Carly Drake
The Book of Lost Things – John Connolly
Doon – Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon
Inkheart – Cornelia Funke
Dark Eden – Chris Beckett
And one more for good measure: I found this book in a charity shop a while back and was so taken with it I had to buy it. It’s so terrible, but in a really great way. It’s very pulp fiction. And I don’t mean the film. I just love it – the head is all shiny! I would totally hang this on my wall – I’m weird like that!
