Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is ‘Books with Nature on the Cover’ so, as it’s Wyrd & Wonder, I’ve embraced my love for Avatar: The Last Airbender this week and I’m sharing
10 12 books with covers involving one of the four elements: water, earth, fire and air.
The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune: This was the first novel I read this year and it’s become an immediate favourite. This is one of the softest, gentlest books I’ve ever read and I think we all need a story like this one right now.
Sea Witch by Sarah Henning: Unfortunately I didn’t like this villain origin story as much as I hoped I would, but I did enjoy Henning’s writing style and I appreciated that she set the story in Denmark.
The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta: I read this contemporary fantasy last spring and ended up having a good time with it, despite its fairly abrupt ending. I really like the way Capetta writes.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I continue to be surprised by how much I enjoyed this series, because it’s so not the kind of thing I’d usually go for, but I ate this book up and I still love the way Holly Black writes faeries.
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi: Unfortunately this wasn’t for me, I couldn’t get into Chokshi’s writing style, but I love the cover!
Hollowpox by Jessica Townsend: This series has quickly become one of my favourites and has one of the best hero and villain dynamics I’ve seen in a long time. I can’t wait for the next book!
Fireheart Tiger by Aliette de Bodard: I’ve seen nothing but praise for this novella, which has been compared to my all-time favourite novel, but unfortunately it didn’t work for me. Look out for my review this Friday!
Incendiary by Zoraida Cordova: I prefer the UK cover of this book, to be honest, but the one thing the UK cover weirdly lacks is fire!
The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin: I’m a simple girl. I see witches, I’m interested. This one’s out in June and it sounds fun!
Race to the Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse: I really want to try some of the books in Rick Riordan’s imprint – I wish they were easier to get hold of in the UK!
Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray: I love this series and this book hurt me.
