Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Covers

I won't lie to you. I often/almost always just a book by it's cover. I can't help it. I've tried, but I just don't gravitate towards books with ugly covers. So if I read a book, it probably has a pretty cover. But here are ten of my favorites! 

 1. Jackaby by William Ritter


 2. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund


 3. Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine


 4. Every Breath by Ellie Marney


 5. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro


 6. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins


 7. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray


 8. Love, Lies, & Spies by Cindy Anstey


 9. Prudence by Gail Carriger


10. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Make Me Hungry!


We've all had those days when we're reading a book and suddenly the characters are eating french fries or making pizza, and now we want french fries and pizza too! Or maybe they're baking cookies, and suddenly we have the urge to bake! What is it about reading about food that makes us hungry? The power of suggestion I guess? Well, hear are ten books to fuel your hunger!


1. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Speaking of french fries and pizza..The characters work in a pizza place, and Layla is always eating french fries. 

2. Bang by Barry Lyga
This is such a sad, beautiful story, but it also has fun pizza making.  

 3. Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
There are werewolves and they're always hungry - cooking, eating, cooking, and eating - That's what happens in a werewolf den. 

4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
She's been starved in prison for over a year, so she's pretty much hungry all the time and always wants chocolate. Not that I blame her. 

5. Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith
At a "fake" vampire restaurant in Texas, Quincie and her uncle serve yummy Italian cuisine. 
 

 6. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
They're always buying fancy ramen in NYC. I've yet to have fancy ramen, but hearing about it constantly definitely made me hungry! 


7. Kitchen Princess
Najika is always cooking for people and joins a cooking contest. Plus there are all kinds of recipes too. And if you've never read manga, this is a good starting point. I liked it a lot.


 8. Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate and Finishing School series
Everyone's always in need of a cup of tea. Between all the parties, lessons, and getting into trouble, these ladies seem to eat a lot of crumpets and cakes.

9. My True Love Gave to Me ed. by Stephanie Perkins
Snow, diners, hot chocolate, junk food :) 

10. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
Between the Blue's house and job, there's a lot of food mentioned in this one. If nothing else, it will make you want to drink a nice cold Coco-Cola.
