Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic: Top Ten Favorite Book Covers Of Books I’ve Read
They say pictures are worth a thousand words, and these covers give a great visual to the words inside the book. Based on this compilation, I enjoy books with colorful, creative and sexy images. Some of the covers are older versions, but I enjoyed them nonetheless. It was so difficult to narrow it down to just 10 covers, but according to the rules I had to. Here, in no specific order, are my Top Ten Favorite Book Covers Of Books I’ve Read
The artwork is alluring. The subject matter, about a slave and master’s daughter who fall in love, are just as provocative (and sweet).
I Ain’t Yo Bitch by Jabulile Bongiwe Ngwenya
This gritty sets the backdrop for the story of a female rapper in an all-male crew trying to make it in South Africa while battling her sexuality.
If You Love Me, Come by Claudia Moss
I can’t say enough of this 5-star book, other than love and its many forms are beautiful. As is this cover.
Girl in the Mirror by Alix B. Golden
I love the girly and sensual look of Golden’s book, as well as the color scheme. The cover definitely matches the story, one of a woman facing herself and finally loving what she sees.
Why do I love this cover? Let thee count the six main characters on the front. Skyy’s second novel is the first one where we can finally put faces to the characters we’ve been reading about. The cover has since changed, but I’ll always appreciate this one. Her newest, and last in the Choices series :'(, Full Circle, will be out soon.
Walk Like a Man by Laurinda D. Brown
The cigar, the tie, man’s shirt, and feminine smirk all contribute a good look to Brown’s short-story tome.
The very first Fiona Zedde novel. Striking, vibrant and just as hot as Bliss and Hunter. The sea backdrop is inviting. It takes you away, along with Zedde’s prose. Her newest title, Broken in Soft Places, is out now.
Black Girl in Paris by Shay Youngblood
Who can resist butterflies? Eden’s excursion to Paris was as rich and pleasing as this cover. It’s a timeless novel.
My Got a Girlfriend by James Tanner
This cover is pure eye candy. Voluptuous femme. Handsome stud. You would think the novel was just as sexy cover. Not so much. The book was horrible. I would rather stare at this couple for days on end than read this book again.
Purple Panties: An Eroticanoir.com Anthology edited by Zane
Purple is one of my favorite colors. The fact that both ladies are clad skimpy undergarments in the same shade, clearly doesn’t hurt. The sex between the covers is just as hot.
Tell what you think of these book covers? What’s your own favorite cover art?
