Top Ten Tuesday: Amazing book covers

I don’t know if this has been a past TTT topic, but it seems like a really fun one to do. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and how it works is each week there is a topic and you make a list of your top 5, 10 or whatever number of books that fit that topic. This week’s topic is a book cover freebie, so I’m doing amazing book covers!

1 Wolf Hollow, by Lauren Wolk

2 The War I Finally Won, by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley.

3 The Gilded Wolves, by Roshani Chokshi

The cover of The War I Finally Won really represents what the book is about, and even though I haven’t read The Gilded Wolves yet, the cover is so beautiful! And with Wolf Hollow, I love how the writing is built into the design of the cover and is part of the tree.

4The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill

5The Sun is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon

6Everything, Everything, by Nicola Yoon

7Five Feet Apart, by Rachael Lippincott

Both of Nicola Yoon’s books have such amazing covers that are just really pretty, and the same is with Five Feet Apart. I love on the cover of The Girl Who Drank the Moon how the title is on the moon. It is so pretty!

8 The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell

9 The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, by Jeanne Birdsall

x Becoming Naomi León, by Pam Muñoz Ryan

The Wolf Wilders is incredible; how the title is built into the trees, and how the light is streaming out of the windows of the cabin. Becoming Naomi León is really interesting as well; how her hair is moving with the wind, the lion next to her with its mouth open. I guess I just love all of the Penderwicks covers; it so simple, yet represents and shows so much of the book!

Top Ten Tuesday: Holiday Reads

Hello! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s topic is holiday reads: books you like reading during the holiday season.

Whether or not you celebrate any holidays over the winter, it’s a perfect time to curl up with a book and read for hours, so here are some of my favorite books to read over winter break and the holiday season

1 The Penderwicks, by Jeanne Birdsall

2 The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, by Jeanne Birdsall

3 The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, by Jeanne Birdsall

4 The Penderwicks in Spring, by Jeanne Birdsall

5 The Penderwicks at Last, by Jeanne Birdsall

The whole entire series is amazing, and the Penderwick siblings are some of my favorite bookish characters! Jeanne Birdsall’s The Penderwicks series is the perfect thing to read over the holidays.

6 Secrets at Sea, by Richard Peck

7 The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail, by Richard Peck

(I have a signed copy!!!!!!!!!)

These two books aren’t exactly part of a series, but they are part of the same world, where mice are everywhere. They are really cute stories, and as always with Richard Peck’s books, are full of humor.

8 Absolutely Truly, by Heather Vogel Frederick

Truly, the main character, recently moved to Pumpkin Falls, Massachusetts, where her family owns a bookstore called Lovejoy books. Lovejoy books is so amazing and cute, and I wish there was a bookstore like it where I live! It’s so cute in so many ways; the pumpkin whoopie pies, Miss Marple, the store’s mascot and dog, and the fact that they let people just come in, hangout, and read!

9 The Mother Daughter Book Club: all of them! (also by Heather Vogel Frederick)

The ways that the book club discusses books, and how they host their meetings is so fun and festive all year round, and the way that the series follows a bunch of different girls lives is so amazing and so fun to read! I’ve only read this series one, but I want to reread it already!

I could list so many more books, but I’m going to end with just this for today!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Give Different Titles To

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. How it works is each week there’s a topic, and you make lists of books that fit that topic! This week’s topic is book titles I’d give different titles to, and the titles I’d use instead.

This one has been a little harder for me, because I generally think that the books I read have titles that fit perfectly with the book, so I’ll try to come up with as many as I can.

1 The Penderwicks at Last, by Jeanne Birdsall

The Penderwicks at Last is such a sad title. The Penderwicks is one of my favorite series, so that title was kind of sad. I know that it’s the last book in the series, but the Penderwick sisters still have the rest of their lives, right? I don’t know what other title I use though.

2 Paper Chains, by Elaine Vickers

This book is kind of about paper chains, but not enough to have that be the title. I’m not sure what other title I’d do, but probably not that.

3 The Blackthorn Key, by Kevin Sands

I really like this book, but I don’t think that the title fits very well. The book is about Christopher Rowe, Benedict Blackthorn, a great apothecary’s, apprentice, and his search for clues. It is not based around one specific key, so I would probably call it something like The Blackthorn clue, or The Blackthorn Cipher.

I can’t really think of any other books that I would change the title to. I looked through my bookshelf, and I think that most book titles fit pretty well with the plot, which makes sense because the author has most likely put a lot of thought into it. Happy reading!
