Top Ten Books Whose Title's Or Covers Made Me Buy It:

1. Evermore by Alyson Noel

For this book it was the cover as well as the title. The cover is gorgeous and has wonderful contrast, plus it ties in to the story as well (which is awesome). 

And then the title, "Evermore" reminded me of Edgar Allen Poe with the raven saying "Nevermore." So I just had to buy the book. All-in-all, I liked this book (I will re-read it and post a review up later). 

2. The Espressologist by Kristina Springer

Again, this book was not only the cover but the title as well. The cover I think is pretty rad. I mean, look at that latte. It looks delicious and it has foam in the shape of a heart. 

The title intrigued me. I am a huge coffee fan and this just spoke to me. Again, not a bad a book. I liked it. =]

3. The Hollow by Jessica Verday

This is the cover I have and I actually prefer this one over the one with the girl on it. I think this one is prettier (it definitely led me to buying this book). I also like the title.

I have not yet read this book, but I hope it is good. 
Has anyone read this one yet?
4. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

This cover took me in. I love this cover art. I think it's stunning. That was the main thing that made me buy this book. Then when I bought it, I read the blurb and it sounded interesting.

This one is sitting on my self, waiting for me to finish up my school books. Has anyone read this one?

5. Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

This book caught my eye by the cover and title. The title was very intriguing as was the cover.

I did get a chance to read this book and I did like it very much (again, a book review will be coming soon).
6. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia

I love this cover. It's beautiful what they did with the title (pun intended :D). Also, the title is very intriguing by being a bit opposite. You don't always think of creatures being beautiful (at least that's not the first word that comes to my mind).

I haven't gotten a chance to finish this novel. I got about halfway through it and then school got in my way. Did any of you read this book?

7. A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

This title hooked me into buying the book and then I looked at the cover and I thought it was beautiful. So simple.

I actually just bought this book at one of my favorite used bookstores. Have any of you read this book?
8. Born At Midnight by C.C. Hunter

This one is one that my friend actually lent to me and before he even told me what it was about, I told him I'd read it. 

After reading it, it became one of my favorite books.
9. The Luxe by Anna Godbersen

This cover is so elegant and so classic. I loved this cover, I just had to buy it. Not to mention the title is awesome and draws you in.

This is still on my To Be Read Shelf.
10. Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty

I bought this back when I was in high school. I liked the little note thing that said "a novel" on it. I also liked the title a lot.

After buying it, I decided to get right in and read. And I did. I loved this book. I have all the other books in this series just itching to be read.

So, what's your Top Ten?
