top 10 book covers i love (with quotes!)

Are you guilty of judging the book by its cover? I have to admit sometimes I do that! I asked because the The Artsy Reader’s Top Ten Tuesday today is a Cover Freebie (choose your own topic, centered on book covers or cover art).

Instead of just sharing the 10 covers I adore the most, all of them I have read once or more, I also want to share today some verses from each book to give you a sneak peek of the world inside their lovely skins.

1. The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Life has to end. Love doesn’t.

2. Manuscript Found in Accra by Paulo Coelho

Manuscript Found in Accra

Only he who gives up is defeated. Everyone else is victorious.

3. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

The Rosie Project (Don Tillman, #1)

Our first relationship with a male is with our fathers. It affects how we relate to men forever.

4. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them.”

5. Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

Leaving Time

I think grief is like a really ugly couch. It never goes away. You can decorate around it; you can slap a doily on top of it; you can push it to the corner of the room—but eventually, you learn to live with it.

6. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

The Lovely Bones

Because horror on Earth is real and it is every day. It is like a flower or like the sun; it cannot be contained.

7. The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom

The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto

“All humans are musical. Why else would the Lord give you a beating heart?”

8. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

All the Bright Places

“The thing I realize is, that it’s not what you take, it’s what you leave.”

9. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park

Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.

10. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl

My mother had always told her kids: if you’re about to do something, and you want to know if it’s a bad idea, imagine seeing it printed in the paper for all the world to see.

  1. Haha, I know I’m not supposed to, but I do think it’s human nature to judge a book by its cover, unfortunately 🙈. That being said, I love the cover of The Lovely Bones. It truly is lovely and just haunting enough to hint at the tragic story within.
