Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature run by BrokeAndBookish each week. I’m thinking I might not take part every week but just see if a week takes my fancy. Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art!

MITES-CovThe Man in the Empty Suit – Sean Ferrell
I love how simple the cover design is, how it’s all white bar the multi-coloured man.

vicious_cvVicious – V.E. Schwab
I just love how striking this cover is – the red and black look great together, especially with the fracturing silhouettes.

sabriel1Sabriel – Garth Nix
I love how simple the cover art is for the UK first editions of this trilogy are and Sabriel is my favourite.

the-twelve-pbThe Twelve – Justin Cronin
I love this book and this cover so much. I love the contrast with the dark image and the bright orange banner with the title in it.

abnisc-flynnAnother Bullshit Night in Suck City – Nick Flynn
I have a bit of a thing for book covers that are mostly made up of text – I think it just looks really cool and would make a great piece of art.

champion.inddChampion – Marie Lu
While I’ve not yet read this book (or even started the series) I adore the cover.

41ydeGPvkULBlack Widow – Nathan Edmondson and Phil Noto
OK so technically it’s a comic book not a novel but I love this cover and the art of the new Black Widow series and I can’t wait till I can get my hands on the first volume.

if you find me paperbackIf You Find Me – Emily Murdoch
I like things that contrast so I love the black background with all the bright yellow trees – it’s a busy cover but there’s something about it.

Nightlife-Web-1244x2000Nightlife – Rob Thurman
I don’t often like book covers with real people on them but I do love how the covers of the Cal Leandros series are put together. They’re so dark and mysterious and would make some good gothic art.

EssieFox-ElijahsMermaid1Elijah’s Mermaid – Essie Fox
This is just really pretty. I love how a lot of Essie Fox’s books have similar cover designs even though they’re not actually connected (I presume, I haven’t read any of the books yet)


  1. Ohh, I LOVE that Vicious cover! It’s so delicious. And also the Champion cover. I never got into that series, but I do so love the cover art. x) My TTT!

    1. haha! When I was reading The Passage I didn’t realise it was the start of a series so when I had about 100 pages left I started freaking out because there wasn’t enough pages for everything that needed to happen! XD

    1. I’ve heard that a few times – I think it’s because it’s the UK paperback version. I have to say I do prefer this cover than the other images (that I presume are the US editions) I’ve seen online.

    1. Thanks! To be honest, it’s been a while since I’ve read for fun so there were a lot of books I didn’t recognise on different lists which was fun (and has given me more to read). No problemo – thanks for returning the favour 🙂
