Top Ten Tuesday #281


Hi everyone! Thanks for the birthday wishes on my post last week, I had a lovely day out on Saturday, Kenilworth Castle was beautiful and thankfully it was a really nice day, if it had been raining, it would not have been the best choice!

Anyway, as it’s Tuesday, I have another Top Ten Tuesday for you courtesy of Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we have a Cover Freebie, so I’ve chosen to share my Favourite Book Covers of 2020. Here we go:

  1. 45044785

The Silvered Serpents-Roshani Chokshi

HOW GORGEOUS IS THIS COVER THOUGH? I thought The Gilded Wolves was pretty, but this one takes the cake! It comes out next week and I can’t wait to see how pretty it looks next to The Gilded Wolves.

2. 40144224

Where Dreams Descend-Janella Angeles

This cover definitely lives up to the Phantom of The Opera/Moulin Rouge comparison! The OwlCrate one is just as beautiful as well. My Waterstones order of this one still hasn’t arrived but I’m hoping it will soon.

3. 51029810. sy475

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue-VE Schwab

VE Schwab always gets the most gorgeous covers and Addie is no exception (the US cover is beautiful as well). It’s my most anticipated read of the year and I’m starting on the Netgalley ARC once I’m done with Queen of Volts, I can’t wait!

4. 46033842. sy475

The Empire of Gold-SA Chakraborty

This series has brilliant covers as well, and I really love the deep purple colour of this one, almost makes me wish I had the hardcover edition (though I would never be able to fit it on my shelves).

5. 38580035. sy475

The Court of Miracles-Kester Grant

This cover is so beautiful, it really makes me wish I’d liked the book more! The naked cover is glorious as well. Sadly, I didn’t enjoy the story as much as I’d hoped but at least I can appreciate the beautiful cover.

6. 37545599. sy475

Queen of Volts-Amanda Foody

I used the US cover for this as I much prefer the deep purple to the green of the UK one, not that it much matters since I’m reading the Netgalley ARC anyway. I’m almost at the end of this one and though it was a slow starter, it’s building to a very exciting climax.

7. 49562002. sy475

The Forest of Ghosts and Bones-Lisa Lueddecke

I love how simple this cover is, the light green with the little illustrations, it’s really lovely! This one sounds really cool too, a fantasy based on Hungarian myths? Yes please!

8. 45046766

I think this one is beautifully done, especially the bird at the bottom of her face, I really love that part. The minimalist colours are gorgeous as well and I love how all the different blues blend together.

9. 36115268. sy475

Incendiary-Zoraida Cordova

The colours and patterns on this one are just glorious, I can’t wait to see what the UK cover looks like for the second book!

10. 52503987

House of Earth and Blood-Sarah J Maas

I used the tour edition for this one rather than the regular one because I feel like the regular one has a little bit too much going on (for me personally) and I prefer the more simplistic look of the tour edition.

So there we go, my favourite book covers from this year! How about you? What have been some of your favourite book covers of 2020? Let me know in the comments!

I will be back for another Top Ten Tuesday next week, it’s time for our annual Autumn TBR topic, and I always love doing the TBR topics so it should be a fun one.

    I’m glad you had a nice birthday. That’s awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Forest of Ghosts and Bones has such a lovely cover.

    My post .

    So glad your birthday was amazing! I only have Crescent City on my TBR, but many of these books seem so good!

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:57 pm

      Aww thank you! It was so nice to have a reasonably normal birthday celebration after everything that’s happened in the last six months. I’m glad I’ve helped you find some new books for your TBR then!

  3. plantyofpages 15/09/2020 / 2:11 pm

    I absolutely adore the cover to Where Dreams Descend. I’ve always been a huge fan of the Phantom of the Opera and this one gives off those vibes so so much! Great list, and happy belated birthday! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:53 pm

      Yes, it’s so gorgeous! The pitch was Phantom of The Opera meets Moulin Rouge and the cover definitely meets that description. Thank you!

  4. Chizurue 15/09/2020 / 2:56 pm

    Roshani Chokshi covers are always on point for me โค๏ธ

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:52 pm

      Yes, she does always seem to get really beautiful covers.

  5. Leah's Books 15/09/2020 / 2:58 pm

    I love the covers you picked! And so many of them are amazing books (of the ones Iโ€™ve gotten to read)! Great list.

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:52 pm

      Thank you! I’ve actually not read most of these, so we’ll see if the contents are as good as the covers.

  6. dinipandareads 15/09/2020 / 4:04 pm

    All of these are such awesome covers ๐Ÿ˜ I really love the Night Spinner one but also Where Dreams Descend is so gorgeous too! I got the Owlcrate which is a naked hardback and itโ€™s just beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ Great list!

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:51 pm

      Thank you! Ah I wish I’d got the OwlCrate naked hardback, but alas, they don’t do one off boxes, you have to get a subscription and I don’t live in the US so it would cost me an arm and a leg for shipping.

  7. Hundreds&Thousands 15/09/2020 / 4:42 pm

    Great selections!! I really like the one for the silvered serpents omg itโ€™s georgous โ€“ I think I might look it up. I recently read the forest of ghosts and bones and love it so much, glad to see someone else did too! This week was a hard prompt (there were so many options haha) but I really like where youโ€™ve gone with it. Here was my go at this TTT ๐Ÿ™‚ :

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:49 pm

      Thank you! Oh you definitely should, it’s the second book in a series and the first book is just as gorgeous. I actually haven’t read it yet, but I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it.

  8. anovelglimpse 15/09/2020 / 4:51 pm

    These are all really beautiful covers. I understand why you picked them.

  9. Poinsettia 15/09/2020 / 5:22 pm

    The cover for The Silvered Serpents is really pretty! Thanks for visiting Long and Short Reviews!

  10. bluereadergal 15/09/2020 / 7:09 pm

    Those are great! The designs of the covers are eye catching. I like them all equally. I may have to add them to my to read pile too.

  11. Anne Bennett 15/09/2020 / 7:12 pm

    With the exception of Night Spinner and the last one all the rest are very similar in their ingredients and layout. Interesting.

  12. evelynreads1 15/09/2020 / 7:16 pm

    Great list! I love the covers for Where Dreams Descend and Queen of volts!

    My post!

  13. Jen G. (Introverted Reader) 15/09/2020 / 7:43 pm

    Oooh, you’ve chosen some beautiful covers! The Silvered Serpents is probably my favorite. I read When Dreams Descend because of that cover but I was disappointed in the book. I hope you like it more than I did!

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:28 pm

      Thank you! Honestly, mine too. Oh that’s a shame, I hope I enjoy it more than you did too.

  14. Sophie @BewareOfTheReader 15/09/2020 / 8:30 pm

    We have three in common this week! :-)))

  15. Louise 15/09/2020 / 9:18 pm

    All of these are beautiful, I really need to pick up some of them.

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:11 pm

      They really are, I’m actually a little sad that I don’t have most of them on my shelf as the ones I’ve read, I’ve read in e-copy!

  16. FangirlFlax 15/09/2020 / 10:45 pm

    That Court of Miracles cover is stunning! Too bad it didn’t live up!

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:09 pm

      It really is! I know, it was such a shame because I really wanted to love it.

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:08 pm

      Thanks! Me too, it’s the exact kind of thing I really love ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. pagesandtea 16/09/2020 / 7:37 am

    I love The Silvered Serpents cover, and Where Dreams Descend has a great cover too ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Aj @ Read All The Things! 16/09/2020 / 10:58 pm

    I have loved the cover of every edition of Addie LaRue Iโ€™ve seen so far. I canโ€™t wait to read it.

    • iloveheartlandx 21/09/2020 / 12:07 pm

      Me either, I’m going to be starting the e-ARC soon and I can’t wait!
