Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/ weekly meme created at The Broke and The Bookish. Because your admins here at From Covers to Covers love the idea of making funny and interesting lists, we are really excited to participate in these weekly challenges.

You know the saying "never judge a book by its cover"? Well this week's meme definitely proves to us that it is perfectly safe to judge some books by their cover. All these covers caught our eyes the second we saw them, so we hope they do the same to you. 

1.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
This cover is a perfect representation of what this book is - beautiful and creepy. Plus, there's something about this cover that draws the reader in. I love it!

2.

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
I absolutely adore how the sea glass is incorporated into this cover, especially that one piece of red sea glass. It ties into the story perfectly.

3.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
This cover is eye catching. The blurring of the people representing the fast-paced environment of an airport, and then the couple kissing in the middle, highlighted by the heart. This book just screams out cute, no? (Well actually it screams out LOVE...)

4.

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
Again, this cover mimics the books so nicely. The typography is gorgeous, Amy & Roger are holding hands with a wide expanse of road behind them, and the golden sun is brightening this summer picture. It's all so good. 

5.

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
Will he, won't he? We have all tried the flower petal technique of seeing if a guy likes us. So when it's on a cover, you know the story's gotta be good. This cover is light and cute which is a perfect cover for a Sarah Dessen novel.

6. 

This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
Jennifer E. Smith gets some of the most eye catching, adorable covers, doesn't she? This one also highlights a word in the title, and again, you can see a couple in it. We like how there's a continuity in her covers though the stories are completely separate. It's a nice touch.

7. 

Hourglass by Myra McEntire
This cover is trippy. The girl is walking on a wall towards the floor, and her hair is covering her face so nicely. Everything is pretty in this cover that it's hard to not pick this one up at the bookstore or library.


8. 


All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab
This is a murder mystery, so I found this cover to be very appropriate. It's creepy, but also very simple. The green glass somehow emphasizes the girl's eyes, and she's so pale. A perfect way to set the tone of a murder mystery.

9. 

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

I can't even describe how badly I wanted to pick up this book when I first laid my eyes on it. It seems really intense, and for fans of the supernatural genre, it is definitely a great way to catch their eyes.

10. 

Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares 
We love how these pants were slowly changing as each book was released. By the time the fourth book came out, the cover was absolutely perfect. With these graffiti-ed pants, you can see how each girl changed during this series when you see little nods towards their previous summers on these pants. These pants hold all their memories, and we love how the covers show them. 


What books are make it on your list?

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is a really popular choice! I haven't read it because I'd heard mixed things but I'll have to try it now.

Yeah, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer does have mixed reviews. Personally, I loved it, while Paula... not so much. Really, you have to read it to figure out if you like it or not.
