Top Ten Tuesday (82)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This Tuesday's theme is...

Top Ten Books I'd Frame 
As Pieces Of Art

YES! Loving today's topic, especially since there are a bunch of covers that (for the most part without text) I want on my shelves and walls. And here are ten of them!

When Borders was still in existence (a moment of silence), I saw this on the shelf and always thought it was SO PRETTY. Here? It looks like a gorgeous movie poster.

The title can stay.

 Obviously, there's an ANIMAL (bonobo, to be exact) on it.

Since I first saw this cover I've been saying that I want it on my wall.

I makes me drool. And it's so SIMPLE. But I love it.

I have a thing for maps, and also I like this song.

There's simplicity about them, but really I just want to hang those wings up.

I bought this book just for the cover, and it's another one that I've been saying I want on my wall. I mean, look at it. It's so preeetty.

"Every breath you take. Every move you make. Every bond you break. Every step you take. I'll be watching you."

I have to represent the classics, and also I already have plans to put this on my wall. (You know how Barnes & Noble has those book covers everywhere? I want to do something like that.)

What book covers would you put on your wall? 


  1. I had Gatsby on my list too. I've always loved that cover and once you read the book it's just, like, the best. So relevant and a perfect depiction of the book's symbolism. I almost put the Shatter Me trilogy on my list too, but I ended up not. Those covers are fantastic, though. Awesome TTT!

    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  2. I'm not fond of the Great Gatsby, but I do love the cover, and it's so iconic that it would be great art. I love the cover of Half Bad. Great choices. :)

  3. Such pretty covers. I really love the cover of Half Bad. The Shatter Me trilogy has such beautiful covers too. I really like the cover of Across The Universe as well.

  4. I'm so glad that you put a classic on your list! That Gatsby cover is one of my very favorites. It's so haunting...

  5. Angelfall and World After are soooo pretty. I must have them. I might just order the covers and hang them on my walls after all. Geez, are they pretty :'(
    Have you gotten the chance to read them yet? Are they any good?

  6. Great picks! I love the Endangered cover it's one of the reasons I bought it actually =)

  7. Shatter Me made my list too! <3 I just love the cover of that trilogy. Also, Let's Get Lost is pretty too! <3

  8. I have Across The Universe on my list too! I love the covers for Plus One and Angelfall, they are beautiful! Great picks! New follower :)

  9. Plus One's cover is so pretty! I need that book purely cause of how pretty it is!

  10. Ah, I forgot Across the Universe. That cover is also part of why I read the book. Oh, also, I almost included Beware the Wild, but I already had so many. I love it so much, though I'm not sure if the book is a me book. Let's Get Lost would fit so nicely in a den or something, along side your map of the world with pins for where you've been!

  11. You chose such great covers!! I love that Across the Universe cover, too. So bitter about that redesign, and I didn't even love the last two books. The Half Bad cover is so gorgeous in person, too - IT'S SO SHINY.

  12. Ooh, I love that How to Love cover! :)


  13. I was debating How to Love. I had it on my primary list but I think I love the story more than I love the cover. I love how simple the cover is. It lets the story do the talking.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  14. I'm beginning to appreciate the SHATTER ME series covers, but I haven't quite got over the fact they changed the cover design after the original hardcover release. I have this thing about cover uniformity over a series, and a part of me died when they announced they were changing the artwork starting with the paperback release. *sigh*

    Among my favorite covers are THE LOST PLANET by Rachel Searles, and the 1975 Pan edition of H.G. Wells' THE WAR OF THE WORLDS.

  15. Great choices! I also chose Across the Universe and Shatter Me. I really like the Plus One cover too.

  16. Love the Half Bad cover! Have you read the book yet? It was really really good!

  17. yes! I totally agree w Beware the Wild and Let's Get Lost. love the covers!
