Top Tuesday Top Ten: Books whose Titles or Covers made me buy it

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week's theme is Books that I bought just because it had an amazing cover or title

1. Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher - I liked this sound of it too and saw a lot of good reviews for it on the blogosphere BUT NEVER SAW THE ACTUAL BOOK ANYWHERE. So, when I went into work at Oxfam and found it on the shelves, I picked it up, looked at the cover and then casually crept it under the counter to buy later. 
I love the cover. Book definitely not so much. 

2. Shadow Web - N.M.Browne - I had seen this repeatedly in the library, but never bothered to pick it up. However, when I did finally one day. I saw the cover and rushed over to the counter already getting my purse out. (You can see a theme of rushing here...)

3. The Other Countess - Eve Edwards - Now, Waterstones don't do this offer any more but they used to do a 3 for 2 offer on selected books. Anyway, I have two books in my hand and like ever I ramble through the shop, suddenly, sharply (alliteration, anyone...), turning when I see the bright orange sticker and then normally rambling back again when I see it's not a book I am interested in. 
This one I saw and was interested though. I had fallen in love with Historical Romance books again after reading The Secret Countess (Eva Ibbotson). This cover is gorgeous. So gorgeous. I mean THAT DRESS. I WANT IT. So, this was me free book :)

4. The Luxe - Anna Godbersen - You see my reaction to the dress on the front of The Other Countess? This was pretty much the same but with a screech when I saw it FINALLY in my school library. 

5. Wither - Lauren DeStefano - I HAVE A THING FOR BEAUTIFUL DRESSES ON THE FRONT OF BOOKS...also Wither? Intriguing...

6. The Sky Is Everywhere - Jandy Nelson - Wow. That was my reaction when I saw this book in the shops (and stared at it for about two weeks). It was a journal, not a book. It was bound, with amazing photographs and poems in there, and written on the loveliest paper. I was in love with this bound book. YOU WANT SOME PROOF? Click here, oh and here and I think the review shows lastly my love. 

* I was so mad when I wrote this...I have just done two hours of Media homework/coursework so my brain was scrambled.
