We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is books with nature on the cover. It took me a while to compile a list, as I looked on my shelves to find the best covers for this. Nature is a pretty broad term in my opinion so I included all kinds of covers haha. So in the end this is what I came up with, let’s jump in!
1. Mage’s Blood – David Hair
This is the Dutch cover of Mage’s Blood. I have to say, I thought my copy had more water on it haha. You can see a bridge, a horse and something in the background that I think might be a tree haha. A horse is an animal and in my book that counts as nature. I have had this one for quite a while now but do hope to read it as some point.
2. Black-Eyed Susans – Julia Heaberlin
Look at all those sunflowers! This is such a pretty cover in that regard. I don’t really like that it also has a girl on the cover but that just the way it is. This is a mystery/thriller and have been wanting to pick it up so many times! Hopefully soon ;).
3. Wintersong – S. Jae-Jones
This is another very pretty cover. I love that flower ( = nature) in the glass orb. Hopefully the image comes to the front somewhere in the story, as that would make the cover even better. I’ve heard some great things about this book but it doesn’t seem to be as popular as some other books.
4. The Queen of Blood – Sarah Beth Durst
I remember getting this book and planning on reading it right away… Well, we all know how that went haha. I do love the forest images on this cover. It’s so beautiful and makes me pretty curious about the story.
5. Lud-in-the-Mist – Hope Mirrlees
This is another stunning cover. I really really like this one. The apple draws the attention but when you look at the background there is so much to see. I did read the first chapter or so and was curious about the rest of the story.
6. The Unexpected Everything – Morgan Matson
Look at those cute dogs!! And a park in the background, doesn’t get much more nature than that, right? I really enjoy Morgan Matson’s contemporaries. Currently I have two on my TBR but I also want to read her 2021 release!
7. Hunted – Meagan Spooner
This is such a pretty snowy cover. I love the usage of colors in this cover. The golden woods, the white snow and the green cloak. It all looks amazing. Candyce and I were supposed to buddyread this one quite a while ago but I totally flaked on it haha.
8. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns – Julie C. Dao
This is one of the books that’s on my TBR the longest. I think I have this on my shelves for about 3,5 years now…. Still, I really want to read it! I’ve heard some great things, it’s supposed to be a villain origin story I believe and I love those kind of stories.
9. Five Dark Fates – Kendare Blake
I’m pretty ashamed I stilllll haven’t finished this book. This series is a favorite of mine and I just need to read half a book to finish the series. I loved what I read so far and I love all the symbolism on the cover. There is a ton of nature to find on there. I can’t wait to find out what happens at the end of the series, so hopefully soon!
10. Call Down the Hawk – Maggie Stiefvater
As an Raven Cycle fan, of course I had to get this book. The sequel is either out already or will be soon and I need to read this book before then. I loved the original series and I think this will be great since it’s about one of my favorite characters.
