Top Ten Favourite/Least Favourite Covers

This is a blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. The theme this week is ‘covers’ so I decided to do five of my most favourite covers and five of my least favourite. Now I’ll be going through my Goodreads list here so I’ll probably miss some but oh well.

For me, a good cover is one which makes me pick up the book but it’s also one that makes me want to purchase a physical copy of the book after reading it on my Kindle. A bad cover puts me off reading the book at all.

I would put it straight back on the shelf and back away slowly, unless highly recommended (like Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell). Likewise, there are certain people where if they recommended a romance, I would never, ever pick up that book (people who think 50 Shades of Grey is a well-written, non-creepy romance for example).

Without further ado, my top ten!

Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Ever Read

This is a blog meme started by The Broke and the Bookish. I haven’t done this for a couple of weeks, partly because it slipped my mind and partly because I wasn’t interested in the topics at the time. But it’s back and I’ve finally got the time to do it (by hiding myself in the library but still).

This week’s topic is Top Ten Most Unique Books I Have Ever Read. Now this list was reasonably easy… some came to mind instantly, while others took a little while.
