Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
Today’s topic is a cover freebie, and I’m focusing mine on book covers with inanimate objects. I absolutely love covers that are more intricate or have hidden meanings once you finish the book
With wealthy vampires in New Orleans, what else do you need on the cover besides a goblet pouring out rose petals that could look like blood?
The family novel of handling your youngest child coming out as transgender, and I think this beautiful cover with an orange peel just represents this so well.
Having one of the clues left behind from Lydia’s disappearance just brings more importance to when someone goes missing.
Three sisters and only one can be queen. The different crowns on the cover, representing the different powers of the three sisters, against a black cover is just gorgeous.
The cover of these many life preservers in this dark sea and those threatening clouds is so haunting. Makes more sense once you finish reading.
I absolutely love this cover with a teapot and the bear in the middle with a silhouette of a girl in the middle of that. Such an amazing book about handling grief when people don’t want to acknowledge that person’s life.
I love Neil Gaiman! This book is so beautiful. And this cover of the grave stone with a boys face carved out of it, is just mwah!
Okay, I have not read this book yet, since it doesn’t come out till next year. But the cover pulled me in with a vial of what I assume is opium with a woman’s silhouette on the vial. I just cannot wait to read this!
Yup, there’s a hand here, but the flowers are the focus for this. This cover is so gorgeous and haunting, especially with the fact that the book is about a mysterious death. Having the flowers and hand underwater makes it seem more dire.
Another book that I haven’t read. I think this cover represent the book so well. A young girl who collects and saves the words that are not included in the first OED. The suitcase filled with words, the tea cup, and even the poppy flower (alluding to the upcoming war) all come together so beautifully.
