I judge books by their covers.  If I don’t know the author, the cover is extremely important along with the title of course.  Since I love how much a great cover can do for books, I really didn’t want to miss out on this week’s Top Ten Tuesday so I’ve made it Top Ten Thursday : )Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. So here are my top ten favorite covers of books I’ve read:

The Emerald Atlas (The Books of Beginning, #1)

The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens

 I pre-ordered this book solely based on the cover and fell in love with the magical series.

Magyk (Septimus Heap, #1)

Magyk by Angie Sage

 I only picked this book up because of the cover and the series is amazing too.

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1)

The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

There are many different covers for this book, but I LOVE the one I got. If you have all three in the series with this cover and put them together they make a cool pattern too.Inkdeath (Inkworld, #3)

Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke

 Purple is my favorite color and the detail on the cover picture is sooo pretty.

The Aviary Gate

Aviary Gate by Katie Hickman

 Bought this book purely because of the beautiful cover when I was visiting Hay on Wye in Wales (one of the coolest towns ever btw!)

The Night Circus

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

 Don’t like circuses, but this cover is by far one of my favorite covers of all time.  Gorgeous and I would totally go to that circus!

The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #1)

The Alchemyst by Michael Scott

Another series I read purely based on the cover and I wasn’t disappointed.

The Apothecary

The Apothecary by Maile Meloy

I entered a giveaway for this one based on the cover and it is a super neat story.  The sequel is coming out in the next few months and I can NOT wait for it!

Museum of Thieves (The Keepers, #1)

Museum of Thieves by Lian Tanner

Picked this one up while shelving because of how interesting the cover looked.  An adventure waiting to happen…and it sure was!

Cinder (Crónicas lunares, #1)

Italian version of Cinder by Marissa Meyer

 I want to own this version of Cinder soooo bad even if I can’t read it because the cover is sooo incredible.

    Loves! My favorite is the Museum of Thieves… With perhaps the Emerald Atlas as a close second – great list!

    The Night Circus is so incredibly beautiful!

    I also appreciate how the spines of that edition His Dark Materials spell out the series name, but I unfortunately like to shelve by title, not series order, so it just looks messed up on my bookcase. 🙁
