TOP TEN TUESDAY: Book Covers I'd Frame As Art

Hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.

~Ten Book Covers I'd Frame As Art~

Starcrossed (Starcrossed, #1)
1. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
I love everything about this cover from the ocean view in the background to the ethereal cover model.

Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage (Highland Pleasures, #2)
2. Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage by Jennifer Ashley
One of my favorite "pretty dress covers" in historical romance.  The unusual pose is also intriguing to me.

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)
3. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
I'm not sure where I'd put something dark like this, but I just think it looks so cool.

Cruel Beauty
4. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Graphic and beautiful at the same time.  I love flowers and I think this would be a cool way to showcase that.

Splintered (Splintered, #1)
5. Splintered by A.G. Howard
Another gorgeous (though creepy) cover.  I'm not sure if I would like having that eye looking at me all the time, but I could get used to it.

For Darkness Shows the Stars (For Darkness Shows the Stars, #1)
6. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I love the mix of space and fashion in this cover.  I'm also a fan of Peterfreund's other sci-fi cover, Across the Star-Swept Sea.

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)
7. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This cover always intrigues me with the "hidden" romantic elements and the gorgeous color scheme.

The Luxe (Luxe, #1)
8. Luxe by Anna Godbersen
As you can tell, I'm a fan of clothes on covers and this is one hell of a dress!

Through the Zombie Glass (White Rabbit Chronicles, #2)
9. Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter
Such a cool concept that was executed well...I haven't read this series, but these covers make me want to try them soon.

Antigoddess (Goddess War, #1)
10. Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
Such a subtle idea, but it tells so much with the feather and the blood drop.


  1. Splintered is on my list too :) I would have included Through the Zombie Glass as well, but I already had two zombie themed books on my list, lol.

  2. The Luxe cover is so beautiful! I read the series a few years ago and loved it, your post has reminded me that it's time for a re-read :)
    Hope you're having a great week :) x

  3. I love the cover of Anna Dress in Blood too! I wouldn't want to hang it on my walls, but I just adore that cover. I also love the cover of Starcrossed. I didn't care for the book, but the cover is gorgeous. I love those colors together.

  4. Huge fan of Starcrossed (US & UK cover!) and Anna Dressed in Blood. Across the Universe is stunning too. That is definitely a series I need to get in to! :) I am not a fan of the cover change on the last book though!
    Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. Oh some nice choices. I like how varied they are :) Luxe is stunning.

  6. Beautiful covers! I had a couple on my list too :)

  7. I easily could have made a top 20 or 30 list lol. Completely forgot about For Darkness Shows the Stars and Cruel Beauty!

  8. Great choices! Nice touch adding Cruel Beauty. It really captures the eye :D

  9. Great picks Jennifer :) Cruel Beauty is on my list too. And I chose Unhinged instead of Splintered :)

    My TTT picks :)
