Top Ten Books Whose Titles Or Covers Made Me Buy It:

For me, it’s all about covers. I rely on covers to communicate the tone, theme, or genre of a novel. If it grabs my eye and tells me it’s exactly what I’m looking for at that moment, then I’m going to read it. Bonus points if it’s purty. These are 10 books that got me interested because their covers promised a story or tone I was going to love.

1. Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel.

2. Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon.

3. Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan.

4. The Espressologist by Kristina Springer.

5. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson.

6. Huntress by Malinda Lo.

7. The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell.

8. The Dark Divine by Bree Despain.

9. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.

10. Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr.

Guest Post at Ruby’s Reads

Yesterday, I had the honor of guest posting for Ruby at Ruby’s Reads while she is on vacation. I had to travel for work yesterday and had some server issues with the blog so I couldn’t get a post up to direct you there in a timely fashion. I hope today you’ll stop by and see what I had to say about how much better books become if you simply add lions in the mix.

I promise awkward Paints and revamped summaries are involved. Click the button to read the post!
