It seems like book covers get more pretty and elaborate with each year. Here are 10 books whose title/cover caught my eye.

10. When it Happens by Susane Colasanti. I don't know why I like this cover...maybe just because I like trees?

9. Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler-- I was just so intrigued by the one read piece, and the idea of twenty boys in one summer caught my attention.

8. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson--we're sticking with the heart theme. But I liked this one, and the book is actually really really good.

7.Along for the Ride Sarah Dessen-- I just love this cover. It's just really cute.  Plus Sarah Dessen is a great author, so anything by her is worth reading.

6. Babe in Boyland--by   I loved the alliteration in the title and the idea behind the title. Plus, the cover was absolutely hilarious, and so I just had to read it.

5. Exile by Anne Osterlund-- the author's name cinched this for me. Also, I loved the first one. I remember seeing the cover for the first time and thinking I have got to read this.

4. Because I am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas--the title and the cover caught my interest. I was drawn to it and eventually just had to read it. A great read, but definitely not one that everybody would like.

3. Thirteen Reasons Why---by Jay Asher. I read this three years ago and I can still remember that the title caught my eye and then when I saw the cover I was hooked. A great read. I still get chills thinking about it.

2. The Luxe by Anna Godsbersen-- any girl with a dress that elaborate was bound to catch the attention of my teenage mind. A great series.

1. If I Stay by Gayle Foreman-- a beautiful cover, a beautiful book, and a beautiful reccomendation. I was caught up with the hypothetical question of the title. Another great read. I read the book with the harback cover with the tree. However, I really really like the new cover. It is so hauntingly beautiful.

Have you read any of these books? As always, feel free to link your Top Ten Tuesday post in the comments section. I'll look at them all and comment on all the ones that have name/url option or pop-up comment form, because those are the only ones I can commen on for some reason.
