Top Ten Tuesday: Books Book Covers I'd Frame as Pieces of Art


This week's Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish is "Top Ten Books Book Covers I'd Frame as Pieces of Art." Normally I worry about finding enough to hit 10. Not this time. I'm pooling all the TTTs I've missed, all the times I only made it to 7 or 6 or 5... and I'm adding them in here. Buckle up guys, this is going to be a long one. And because this post is all about the graphics, it's a picture-only post, folks!











I'm sure I'm forgetting some that I'll be kicking myself for later, but those are the ones I found! Did I miss any great covers? Share your faves in the comments!

    1. Isn't it? I'll freely admit that I bought it solely for the cover!

      Also just FYI - I tried to comment on your blog, but it won't let me without linking to my G+ account, and I couldn't even find any way to contact you on your site. I'm not comfortable linking to my G+ when I comment, so I can't leave any notes on your blog! :( Not sure if you were aware of this or not, but you might be losing out on interaction because people don't want to use their full name or don't want to integrate with their G+. Just a bit of reader feedback! :)

    1. I have high hopes for Salvation - it looks like it could be pretty great! I definitely bought Perfect Ruin like 90% because of the cover, even though I've heard mixed things about it. It's just that pretty!
