Top Ten Tuesday: Illustrated Blue Nature Covers


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week, we’re talking about covers. I was looking through my book wish list Pinterest board, and I noticed that I’m drawn to books with a very particular type of cover. Since I am clueless about art, I call them “illustrated blue nature” covers. They’re startlingly blue, and they feature weeds or critters. Here are 10 of my favorites.

  1. These are beautiful!! I think these are exactly the type of covers I am drawn to, although the other week I read two books with amazing covers - Opium and Absinthe, and The Conjurer, so I guess I like covers like those as well. Adding The Glass Woman to my list!

  5. I love that you even noticed the nature in all of those! I think the color would have just caught my attention. I do love blue covers, though!

  13. These are SO pretty! I do find I am drawn to certain covers- I love bright colors, and space is always a win, basically I think I am drawn to bright and shiny things 😂

  14. Ohhh The Snow Child! It kind of seems creepy and yet I can’t take my eyes of it.

  15. I like all the nature elements, but I also love how the artwork occupies almost all the real estate on these covers.

  17. How beautiful. It sets a sense of tranquility and peace. My copy of The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern also has a blue cover. I actually bought it just for the cover.

    Enjoy the rest of your week!

  20. I love this theme. I notice that I am drawn to red covers. I have not read any of these, but my favorite covers here are The Glass Woman and The Familiars.

  23. What a lovely list. Foxlowe really captured my attention, going to look it up!

  24. Ohh The Snow Child ... I finally read that this summer -- and it was terrific! I was sort of used to the other cover I saw of it .... white in the woods .... but the one you picture is effective too.

  25. Oh i like the cover to foxlowe! It's so pretty. I really like an american marriage too. It's so simple but there is just something about it. Such a lovely list!

  26. I love a good blue cover. That first one is pretty awesome. Escape Routes is nice too!

  27. Beautiful idea for the topic. Green is my favourite colour but blue comes a very, very close second. I have Elif Şafak's book on my TBR list and Snow Child on my wishlist. But I bet I could add more from your list.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

  28. I love all of these! I thought The Glass Woman was my favorite until I saw The Snow Child. Wow! The Snow Child has been on my TBR for ages but I've never seen that cover. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  29. What a fun idea for this topic! Blue is such a versatile color and I like the variety with the nature theme.

  33. Blue is a personal favourite for book covers for me...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Beautiful covers! I especially love The Glass Woman. I didn't even know that The Snow Child has an illustrated cover. The Dutch edition I read has a photo of footsteps in the snow. I like the illustrated one a lot more!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Even though I didn't LOVE All the Crooked Saints, that cover is still so gorgeous.

    This is a great list idea for the prompt! I love seeing all the different shades of blue. :)

  40. They are all a solid delight... And The Snow Child is one of my alltime favourite reads:)). My go-to colour is purple. But it's interesting that we do all have a default favourite covers.
