Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.

Check out their blog for their top ten and lists of other bloggers who participate.

May 2: Cover Theme Freebie: literally anyyyything about covers….top ten covers that scream Spring, ten books with ice cream on the cover, ten books with blue covers, etc. etc. THIS ONE COULD BE REALLY FUN and I can’t wait to see how creative your lists are!

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    Those covers are all beautiful, but I especially love the cover of Heidi! There’s something about the style of it that I just love.

    Great list! 🙂

  3. Such springy covers! I think Shine is my favorite of them all. 🙂
    My TTT.

  4. I’m in love with that cover of Jane Eyre.

  5. Oh goodness, that cover of Heidi made my heart jump. It is so pretty, I am definitely keeping an eye out for that in the bookstore! Amazing list, Caitlin 🙂

    I was actually contemplating re-reading Beauty again for spring! I probably will, it is quite a pretty cover!

  7. Wow these are some beautiful covers. I haven’t seen many books with flowers on, but then again there are probably a few on my shelf I haven’t spotted. I think the cover for At Last has to be my favourite of the ones you featured.
    Great picks for this week. 🙂

    Love the flower power! My TTT

  9. Awww yes, the Heidi cover! I have the same collection, along with Little Women! I’m such a sucker for pretty covers, my whole book case has this central theme around flowers.
    Awesome post ! 🙂
