Top Ten Tuesday - Judging Books by Their Covers!

I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Every Tuesday they post their top ten lists on different bookish topics.

This week is all about judging a book by it's cover. I've found some great reads this way! In no particular order...

"Amy and Roger's Epic Detour" by Morgan Matson: I know it's not as stunning as some of the YA paranormals out there, with ethereal girls in shiny dresses, but something about this cover just made me want to read what was hiding inside. The title also seemed to promise a good time. Of course, I loved it, so it was a good call :0)

"Unearthly" by Cynthia Hand: Speaking of ethereal girls in shiny dresses, this one
 pulled me in, and I'm so glad it did! This has ended up as one of my favorite paranormal reads this year :0)

"My Beating Teenage Heart" by C.K. Kelly Martin: This cover is fairly simple, but I think it was the hands that really drew me in. I hadn't even heard of this book when I came upon it and decided to give it a shot since I was so intrigued by the cover.

"The Sweetest Thing" by Christina Mandelski: I feel like this one is kind of self explanatory, I mean come on, who doesn't love sprinkles? Anything with a heart made of sprinkles on the cover screams adorable :0)

"Breathers: A Zombie's Lament" by S.G. Browne: The cover of this book made me think of an old fashioned love story, but with zombies! I love zombies. So of course I had to have it. It actually turned out to be quite humorous and zombeautiful...hehe.

"Beauty Queens" by Libba Bray: I'm ashamed by this one a little, because I really should have known about this book before seeing it for the first time. Either way, the cover made me laugh and I had to find out what kind of story would go with it. It didn't disappoint.

"Under the Never Sky" by Veronica Rossi: This one is actually a pre-order, but it's got a fabulous cover. It just looks badass and I can't wait to dive into the action I'm sure is waiting on the pages. So pretty!

"Just Your Average Princess" by Kristina Springer: This one was just so darn cute that I knew there had to be an adorable story waiting for me. I love the pretty princess dress on the haystack!

Okay, so I know that's only seven, but so many of the books I have read were because of recommendations from various people and places. Now that I spend so much time in the world of books, I don't get to randomly pick things by their cover as often.

What's on everyone else's top ten this week? :0)
