"Rubble had piled up all around me--even above me--a perfect cocoon.

Somehow I was...untouched." (from The Fortune) Kindle loc. 39%

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Tuesday REWIND--Favorite Covers (because it's always being updated!)

*in no particular order

1. THE FLAME NEVER DIES by Rachel Vincent--loved these covers to this duology! Simple in design, but the colors are remarkable!!
2. THE WINNER'S KISS by Marie Rutkoski--was so glad that the publishers kept to the original style for the last book instead of the newer ones!
3. THE SHADOW HOUR by Melissa Grey--love this one! And the UK cover is equally amazing! I still need to buy that one!

4. MIDNIGHT MARKED by Chloe Neill--always love a killer urban fantasy cover!
5. REIGN OF SHADOWS by Sophie Jordan--still need to read it, but I LOVE the colors and design of the cover!
6. IT TAKES ONE by Kate Kessler--still need to read this one too! But I love the outline of the heroine and then the scenery/person shot within her!

7. A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING by Jessica Cluess--one I picked up at BEA and still need to read! I loved the cover and is what led me to it! Plus it sounds aweosme!
8. AND THE TREES CREPT IN by Dawn Kurtagich--another unread BEA acquisition! Loved her first book and can't wait to read this one! I love the creepiness of this cover!
9. THREE DARK CROWNS by Kendare Blake--yet another unread BEA book! I love the unique cover here too!

10. 13 TO LIFE by Shannon Delany--one that will always be among my fave covers ever!!


  1. OH my goodness that teaser is just wow! Her daddy, his head, wow!

    I like the A Winner' Kiss and A Shadow Bright and Burning covers. Very Pretty.

  2. I think I need to add Day Zero to my list . . . Great teaser, indeed!

    Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog earlier :)

  3. That's some great looking books!
    Day Zero has a great cover. And so sad. Sounds like she's left to face things all alone now.

    My TT from Friend Of The Devil

  4. Ouch. Nothing like getting right into the story.

    I'm intrigued by the use of a typeface with swashes on the cover of what appears to be an apocalyptic novel.

    My teaser this week is from the point of view of a man with autism:

  5. Wonderful covers. I particularly like A Shadow Bright and Burning and The Flame Never Dies.

  6. I have seen Day Zero around and love the cover. Sounds good. I too love that cover for 13 to Life. Catchy title too.

  7. Your teaser sounds ominous!
    Here's mine:

  8. I love a good cover design. There are so many pretty ones out there. I absolutely agree on The Winner's Cures. I was so glad they stuck with the girl in a dress cover. They worked so well for that series and were gorgeous. The ones you mention from BEA are also really pretty. Great picks!

  9. I LOVE the covers of the Winner's trilogy! It's such a shame they decided to change them. :( I love the cover of Reign of Shadows too, but I still haven't read it!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  10. Intriguing teaser. My YA teaser this week comes from Vicarious by Paula Stokes. Happy reading!

  11. I adore that cover of The Flame Never Dies!

  12. The cover for DAY ZERO deserves a lot of heart eyes. I love it! And those covers are just gorrrrgeous! Especially Rutkoski's!

  13. oh!... I like your TTT, and of those covers I like Rachel Vincent book cover.
    Adriana @ Reading Fictional

  14. I also love The Winner's Crime covers and A Shadow Bright and Burning!
