hey my lovely fellow bookworms! ❤ how is everyone today? i know, i know, i promised to be back soon and hop on your blogs, i just don’t know where the time is going. my schedule is still a mess, but i promise, you’ll hear from me soon!! hang in there 😀 but first, it’s time for another top 5 tuesday. it was created by shanah over at Bionic Book Worm. please go and check out her blog, because she’s awesome!
this week’s topic is: top 5 cover buys. i admit, that i love beautiful covers and that i always tend to buy books with great covers. i mostly know a little bit about the story, but since i am hooked on the story already the cover does the rest. and sometimes i just buy it without knowing much. so let’s get to that list of mine, shall we?
1.) “the illuminae files” by amie kaufman & jay kristoff
this one is pretty easy. i saw the naked hardbacks and i was sold. i knew this series is sci-fi and i didn’t need to know more. i love both covers for “illuminae” and “gemina” and i am pretty sure, that i will love “obsidio” as well as soon as i have it in my hands. 🙂 ❤
2.) “shadow & bone” trilogy by leigh bardugo
i’m pretty embarrassed about admiting this one. 😀 i liked the “six of crows” series but i didn’t know if i wanted to read the original grisha trilogy. it was an option but no priority. but as soon as the boxset with the new covers came out, i was sold. i needed to have those new covers because they are GORGEOUS!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
3.) penguin english library editions
i have to admit, that pretty much every penguin english library edition is a cover buy for me. i am collecting them, even though i am not sure about reading them at some point haha. they just are gorgeous and floppy and look amazing on the shelf. i own 24 by now and i love having them in my collection.
4.) “furthermore” by tahareh mafi
this book has been sitting on my shelves for a long, long time. and i don’t know how long it will be there. but i just had to have this book, because it is so, so, sooooo beautiful!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
5.) “nevernight” by jay kristoff
yes, you are reading this right. “nevernight” was a cover buy for me. i saw the book, it looked gorgeous and i bought it. 😀 after buying it i heard more and more things about it and then decided to read it. i am pretty sure, that it would still be unread if i hadn’t seen so many booktube videos about it. but look at it? it’s so beautiful? wouldn’t you buy it too???
that was my list guys. my top 5 cover buys. are some of these books also cover buys for you? which books are on your list? let me know in the comments 🙂
