Top Ten Books That Whose Titles Or Covers Made Me Buy It

                                     hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

  This week is about what books I've bought because I liked the cover or the title. So, this is the list:

1.- Scones and sensibility by Lindsay Eland. Well, in this case was both. I found very funny the title and I thought the cover was really cute. Check it out by yourselves.

 2.- The well of lost plots by Jasper Fforde. When I decided to buy a book by Fforde, I couldn't decide which one, but when I read this title I imagined the main character in a world with the most varied plots and I couldn't help buying it.

3.- An abundance of Katherines by John Green. The same happened to me with John Green. I wanted to buy two books by this author, one was obvious: Looking for Alaska because I've heard it was very good, but this one I bought it because I liked the title. I pictured the main character surrounded by millions and millions of Katherines.

4.- We sang it our way by Reginald Frary. In this case was both. I liked the title because the story is about a choir and I liked the cover.

5.- Angels by Marian Keyes. I bought this one because I liked the title in Spanish: Maggie sees the light. I thought she maybe realized about something important. I was intrigued.

6.- The book of (even more) awesome by Neil Pasricha. I saw this book in the blog Consumed by books and I really liked the title although I didn't know anything about the author.

7.- Bake sale by Sara Varon. It was the cover what it made me buy it. It's a cupcake making cupcakes with the help of an aubergine :) Check it out 

Well, this is me but, what about you?


  1. I saw somewhere that it is primarily the book cover that will make or break book sales.

    I love quirky book titles. Here's my Top Ten list.

  2. I love the water color on We Sang It. it's so pretty!

  3. Deb Nance at Readerbuzz: well, I normally read the first lines on the first page to see if I'm really interested in the book. But it's true sometimes you can't help buying just because of the cover.

    Trish: yeah! it's really pretty :)
