Top Ten Tuesday: Pretty in Purple

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share lists on the following:

May 2: Cover Theme Freebie: literally anyyyything about covers…

This week’s list is pretty much carte blanche for whatever we come up with cover related.  I jumped over to my Goodreads account and started scrolling through the covers in my account and noticed a lot of half naked men…  Decided that wasn’t really the way I wanted to go I also thought about covers that don’t feature any people or places in the artwork.  Quickly grew tired of that I decided to keep it simple and just select ten covers in my favorite color.  Purple :)

Ten pretty purple covers from my Goodreads account.

  1. Gemini Space the final frontier, but not on this week’s list.  Decided to start with a cover from one of my Trek books.  I’ve become obsessed with all things Trek lately so it only seemed fitting.
  2. Biting Bad (Chicagoland Vampires, #8) Couldn’t leave this cover out.  Not only am I sad to be saying goodbye to this author I will also miss these great covers featuring my favorite city in North America, Chicago.
  3. Fifth Grave Past the Light (Charley Davidson, #5) One of my favorite series here and almost more pink than purple but I’ll let it slide this time.  I’ve been inspired by this series to seek out more skull bling and now one of my key chains is a rhinestone encrusted skull that my husband refuses to use.
  4. Styxx (Dark-Hunter, #22) I do believe it has been a few week’s lists since I had one of my favorite author’s covers on the list.  Let’s rectify that right now, shall we? Styxx also happens to be my favorite book in the series which has some pretty steep competition with 40 some stories in the series and its spin-offs.
  5. Undead to the World (The Bloodhound Files, #6) I’ve not read this book yet but it fits this week’s theme nicely.  I think I only have three books to go in this world.  I should get back to it sometime.
  6. Wizard and Glass (The Dark Tower, #4) This was not the cover for this book back when I read it.  Can’t say which I like better but this one is pretty cool and fits the theme.
  7. The Shadows (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #13) I was so hesitant about reading this book then I read it and I feel like I’m hit by a freaking sledgehammer right to my heart.  This book left me emotionally devastated.  Such a shocking twist at the end.  Just wow.
  8. Damian (Stone Warriors, #1) This was a great new series by this author and I see that the second book is going to come out soon!  So looking forward to reading it!
  9. Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1) Not really into YA anymore but I still think this cover is beautiful.  It was a great trilogy too!
  10. Hunting Ground (Alpha & Omega, #2) I thought that this cover rounded out the list nicely.  I’m looking forward to returning to this spin-off series and need to check out when that might be coming out.  (2018 in case you were wondering)

Well, there is my list for this week.  Not truly the most original but wasn’t feel that inspired.  I hope you enjoyed it and if you know of any other great purple covers feel free to share in the comments.
