Top Three Tuesday is my spin on Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl
Happy Tuesday, Wormies! I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching (well, blog soul-searching, anyway) and I want my blog to be a little more personal (as personal as I can make it). I also want to post more and in a bid to inspire me to do it, I wanted to make my other non-review posts, be a little more in-depth but not make it too long to make me not want to post anymore. So. Here we have my spin on Top Ten Tuesday.
If you have been following my blog for a while, you should have noticed that I used to have these posts every Tuesday and you should have already noticed that I haven’t been posting Tuesday posts in a while. I hope you will like this version! I will still be using the TTT prompts as much as I can, but will do something else if I don’t like the prompt.
Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen
Why I Love This
Loveboat, Taipei is a YA Contemporary coming-of-age book that fell under my radar until I started this post. I absolutely LOVE this COVER!
I love this illustrated cover because it’s subtle and not too illustrated KWIM?
PLUS, I do love that we have an Asian on the cover! YAY for diversity. Although, I will say that it would have been better to have a non-illustrated cover featuring an Asian cover model for even more diversity.
Marriage on Madison Avenue by Lauren Layne
Why I Love This
Ya’ll I have said that I don’t really like illustrated covers as much but this cover is so whimsical I LOVE IT SO MUCH!
I have to be honest, I’m not a fan of this series because it’s a fade to black (but the plot is good, you can read my review for Love on Lexington Avenue).
But let’s go back to the cover. This cover is hella whimsical, which matches the title and the book’s overall theme. Plus, there’s that cute illustrated rose in her hair that I love so much!
Credence by Penelope Douglas
Why I Love This
Let’s talk about this cover. It’s dreamy and creepy and I think is perfect for this erotic taboo romance!
While I haven’t read a book written by Penelope Douglas and I’m not sure I will actually read this book, there is no doubt that this cover is gorgeous!
This really touches on my photography side (it’s a hobby, I’m not a pro) where photos like this evoke a sense of calm for me.
What do you think about the illustrated covers trend?
Also, this tweet by @JenReadsRomance is on point about the illustrated trade cover dilemma and confusion
I didn’t really believe the “trade romance covers are now indistinguishable from YA” theory until I sat in a day long “what’s new in YA” PD session last week. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯— Jen (@JenReadsRomance) January 25, 2020
Yeah, that Credence cover is amazing.

I love how each of these covers has such a unique style! I personally love the new trend of illustrated covers, and I think Marriage on Madison Avenue looks so cute! I also have to admit that part of what ended up convincing me to put Loveboat, Taipei on my TBR was the cover. Something about how Ever’s hair looks like it’s moving on the cover has me captivated!
