Top 10 Tuesday: Top 10 Books With Books On Their Cover I Have or Want to Read


Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. You can find the prompts here.

This week is a lovely freebie week and that’s time to really get the creativity going. The loose theme to this week’s freebie week is all to do with covers and I decided that my contribution to Top 10 Tuesday would be my favorite books with books on the cover. Books that are about books, libraries, authors, librarians, etc. are usually books that I push to the top of my TBR so if the cover has books on them, it increases the chances I’ll pick it up to check it out.

This list will be a mix of books that I have read and ones that I want to read, all sharing the common thread of having books on their cover.


The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield


Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare (The Infernale Devices #3)


The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes

    1. Glad to be of assistance. 🙂 I feel like, if there’s a book on the cover, maybe the characters will be a little more relatable. Maybe there’s a bookworm, maybe there’s a librarian, but usually there’s someone that’s a bit more interesting.

  1. Omg these are so gorgeous! I love the Clockwork Princess cover SO much. 😍 And I didn’t actually realise Mr. Pembra’s cover was books until now…*facepalm* 😂 I want to read that someday!
