Top Ten Books I Read Because Of The Cover Or Title

It's Top 10 Tuesday (hosted at The Broke and the Bookish) and the topic is
Top 10 Books with Covers or Titles That Made Me Read Them

1. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Ok, this is a Slovenian Cover, if you were thinking that you've never seen it before ;) It was special for Slovenia I guess. It was the summer of 2010 when my mum discovered this series. In that time I was really into Twilight so I haven't paid attention to anything else. And then she started pushing me into Vampire Academy, and I was like "Mum seriously" and she was like "Nea you'll see, you'll love it. I think you'll like more than Twilight". "HUH? Impossible". I mean seriously, I was rereading Twilight for the whole year that I have spent in Erasmus - so yeah, you can kind of get my point. When I saw the cover and everything and decided to give it a try. Honestly? I haven't picked up Twilight since then. I was reading and reading and laughing and crying and oooh Rose <3. My mum then told me Rose reminded her of me. Funny I felt the same :P After all this time I am still thinking if maybe my awful Erasmus would have been different if I would have been reading Vampire Academy instead of New Moon over and over again. Probably.

2. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
OMG have you seen this BODY?! Definitely to pick up and start reading. Seriously - he is like a GOD. And it was a series which I was also looking for. City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass and so on.. I loved it! I like this sequel of same titles and yet different. After Vampire Academy I've thought that I will never find a series like that. And here it was! I loved it!! Jace <3

3. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
This is the Italian cover. I was in Rome visiting my favourite place on the planet and I was staying with some friends of my parents. I the last days I've seen this book lying around the house. I took a look at it.. It was interesting. The title I mean - The Italians translate it in Men which hates the women. I thought it was psychological. Booh I didn't know. And I've picked it up and started reading. I had 3 days left in Rome so I needed to be quick. This book was shocking. Seriously, I mean I liked it but still, it was a book that got me pretty badly. My last night in Rome I haven't sleep at all - I was reading it :P I've finished it at 7 am in the morning lol. The night after that I left Rome. When I came back home I bought The girl who played with fire ;)

4. Chosen by P.C. and Kristin Cast
Well, my mum bought the book - the first one in Slovenian and then another one in English. And she told me that she bought the first book in both languages. I said ok and I took the one in English and I liked the cover. I wasn't paying much attention.. and after I finished Chosen I kind of figure out that I was reading the 3rd one instead of the first. Dooh. What I was supposed to do then? I was reading on the 4th one and so one :P I haven't read the first and the second at all. And actually had stopped in the middle of Awakened - Zoey disappointed me so much when she kind of gave up, that I left the book there for, huh, 6 months I guess. Maybe those days I will pick it up again. Maybe.

5. The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa
OMG look at these covers!! They are just AMAZING. The pattern is so so great and the colors? Oh my God seriously I love it. And the eyes woow. How can someone after seeing those covers refuse to read these books? Impossible ;)

6. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Ohh, look at this cover! It's so so beautiful. I love those eyes. And also the title. So I've picked it up and the book was just amazing! 

7. Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik
Ohh I loved this title!! I've seen it on other blogs I was eager to read it. I wanted to see this WooW EPIC FAIL. But when had read the book.. well I can say there wasn't THAT epic fail at all. I think the title is a bit exaggerated. But I liked the story :)

8. Fallen by Lauren Kate
I loved this cover! The dress is so waaaw. The twilight with that blue colors. And that long hair - even if let's face it - Lucinda has short black curls. I've found it a bit odd, but then again I guess long black hair on the cover makes a bigger impression. I liked the story of the first book the most.

9. Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shoudn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski
Ok, everyone can admit with me that THIS title is just amazing! I mean it gets your attention if you want it or not. It's just that great. And the story is wooow. The prologue is so so funny and you actually get through the whole book before you understand how everything happened to come to the prologue again. "See you soon princess!" "Yeah, I am a dead princess" haha it was just that funny!

10. Huh, on the 10th one I didn't know what to put - so I decided to put books I will definitely read because I saw the cover or read the title or both! ;)
- Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Straight Line To My Heart by Bill Condon
Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Die For Me by Amy Plum
