Top Ten Tuesdays #236: No Redesigning

Posted May 21, 2019 / Top 10 Tuesdays, Weekly Memes / 14 Comments

Books That I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch
Redesign the Covers Of

Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.

I am actually not a big book collector. I rarely buy physical books and there are SO few that I own multiple copies of. I don’t even have special editions of books, really. The idea that I would have books that no one is allowed to touch is weird for me, so I made my own spin on this topic – here are the books with some of my all-time favorite covers that better not ever change. No one is allowed to redesign these, okay???

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy by Jenny Han | I know these may get some redesigns because of the movies, which isn’t as bad, but I LOVE these covers so incredibly much. Please make sure all other editions are published just like this, TYVM.

Puddin' (Dumplin' #2)

Dumplin’ and Puddin’ by Julie Murphy | I love these so much. They’re striking, capture the book/character so well, and honestly make me want to frame them for my wall. I’ll admit I haven’t read Puddin’ yet but I will soon hopefully whooooops.

All of Sandhya Menon’s books | I’m obsessed with these covers. They are so perfectly accurate to the characters in the books and just look adorable. They make me want to hang out with each main character. I also think they do a wonderful job of giving much-needed accurate representation on book covers! I’ll be the first to admit that I rarely like actual human people on book covers, but this are *chef’s kiss*

The Kiss Quotient and The Bride Test by Helen Hoang | I love illustrated covers so much and these look gorgeous next to each other! I hope Helen Hoang continues to get lucky with all perfect covers like Emery Lord has 😉

All of Emma Mills books | This is another author with perfect covers at all times. I hope Mills ALSO keeps getting blessed with perfection. The covers are always simple and complex at the same time, which will hopefully draw a lot of readers in when they see them in bookstores.

  1. I’m the same way. I’ve learned not to be sentimental about books. I read them, then I give them away either to friends/family, to the library, or a used bookstore that trades them for store credit. I rarely keep books anymore.

    These are some pretty covers, by the way!
