Top Ten Tuesday is hosted each week by The Broke and The Bookish and allows us to combine our love of books with our love of lists. This week’s topic is: Top Ten Books With Fall Covers.
When I saw the topic for this week, I thought it’d be an easy one. I love book covers and I love fall colors so surely I could easily come up with covers that conveyed a fallish feeling. But it turned out to be just a tiny bit harder than I had anticipated. It ended up just fine but I spent a lot more time trying to find covers that felt like fall than I originally thought I would. Mostly because sometimes one would seem too much like spring or summer or the book didn’t feel like fall at all or I wanted to do all books that I hadn’t read yet or all that I had and for whatever reason, I couldn’t get ten covers in any category by itself. So eventually I gave up on all of that and just went through covers of books. Some of them I’ve read. Some of them I want to. Some are old and some are new. Really the only thing I stuck to was that I only chose one book from each author. Since some series, or even authors themselves, have similar cover art or themes, I limited it to just one from author/series. But that’s it. So go ahead and enjoy these fall covers! (And yes, orange is pretty much the only thing that makes me think of fall.)
So, there you have it. That’s all I’ve got right now. I really thought it would be easier to find covers that felt like fall. I tried to not just go with whatever was orange but apparently orange and fall are inseparable in my mind. Which I suppose isn’t completely unfair. But still, I was hoping for a little more diversity here. I was able to find some that weren’t just orange in the end. So while I’m still not entirely in love with this list and feel like I could have done better, I do feel pretty okay with it. They might not look great together but individually they all give me a feeling of fall, with their bright oranges and reds and a general feeling of warmth and change. But that’s as deep as I’m getting on this post.
What are some covers you think convey a feeling of fall?
