This is my first time participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by Broke and Bookish – I love the idea! Since mine is a children’s blog as well I’m going to throw some children’s books in. :)
1. It’s Time to Sleep, My Love by Nancy Tillman
Isn’t that a beautiful cover? I love all of the illustrations inside, too!
2. The Restorer by Sharon Hinck
This is one I’m very glad I bought – it’s a terrific story! It had me at time travel, of course. :)
3. The Hunter’s Moon by O.R. Melling
This is one of my favorite faerie trilogies, lots of Irish lore and adventure.
4. Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey
I read this as a teenager. My favorite Anne McCaffrey series EVER.
5. DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul
I still haven’t read this. I really need to because I know I’ll really like it.
6. A Treasury of Children’s Literature
I remember walking through a Sam’s Club as a teen with my parents and hinting that I really wanted this beautiful fairy tale book. It is large, hardcover, and filled with gorgeous full-color illustrations. I got it that Christmas!
7. The Carousel by Liz Rosenberg
I actually bought this for my sister. It’s about two sisters who go on an adventure – carousel horses coming to life and taking them for a ride through the city. Beautiful!
8. Bear in the Air by Susan Meyers
I actually received this one for review, but I absolutely love the cover and the old-fashioned illustrations inside. This was my daughter’s favorite book to have read to her when she was 2. I think it was eventually ripped beyond repair, so I’ll have to get another copy.
9. Thicker than Blood by C. J. Darlington
This was the first ebook I ever bought, so I never got to enjoy the cover much… however, I wasn’t as drawn into the story as I wanted to be. I think that I expected something different, though. I didn’t realize it was a modern story.
10. Healer by Linda Windsor
I really enjoyed this one. I was drawn in by the cover – I love the time the story takes place and the fact that she had a wolf with her. Now I need the next book in the series!
What books have you bought/read based on their covers?
