Top Ten Tuesday: Super summery book covers (plus crowdsourced list!)

Hey y’all! Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish question idea that was originally created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, from way back in June 2010! Since January 2018, Top Ten Tuesday has been hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Thanks for taking it over! The idea is to make a list of ten books or bookish things on different topics each week. Check out her site for details on how to join and what the upcoming prompts are. 😊 You can also see all the posts from other bloggers linked on each weekly post on their main site.

This week’s prompt (by Ellie @ Curiosity Killed the Bookworm) is for books with covers that feel like summer. Like sunshine, and smores, and fireflies, and swimming, and flirting, and playfulness, and potential. All that: in a book cover. I thought this would be a hard one, but I ended up having to cut a bunch out of my list! 😊

The Books

The Thoughts

I’ve read about half of these, although it’s a CRIME that I never reviewed Siri, Who Am I? because that book was SO SO SO much better than I expected and genuinely funny and thoughtful and unexpected. 😁

The ones I’ve read:

The ones I want to read:

Yes, Portia MacIntosh is on here twice. I could probably do an entire post of JUST their books and it would still fit this theme perfectly. xD

Actually not kidding about that, her shelves are summer galore!

Most common picks!

I did this a week or two ago when I was extremely tired on Tuesday and compiled books from others lists to compare for the day! Today I made my own, but also wanted to highlight some that I saw often in others lists.

  • Malibu Rising was one of the most common ones, including two different covers!
  • Basically anything by Emily Henry was really popular xD
  • Jennifer Weiner made her expected appearance, though not as much (or as many titles) as I had thought there’d be!
  • Romances (no surprise) were front and center
  • Boldwood Books represented HARD (even on my list!!) and for good reason!

And some ones I rarely that seemed perfect!

(I linked the first / only blog I saw each on. 😊)

Did you have any of those popular books in your list? Or did you have a title that you haven’t seen anyone else mention? Drop the title in the comments (along with your post link)! 😊


Reader, traveler, photographer, and always looking to learn!

    1. Aww thank you! It’s a pre-made theme so I can’t take the design credit, but I love all it’s little details like that so I’ve stuck with it for years now πŸ™‚ And hey, they get featured because they look good, right? No issue there ^.^

  1. Great post Jennifer. I could have put many of these on my list. It was hard to limit today’s list to just ten. From your list, I have read No Words and The Meet Cute Method.

    1. Same! Who knew there were so many? I can’t wait to do the other seasons now since I haven’t before. The Meet Cute Method is one I plan to read soon! I have it ready to go on my Kindle πŸ™‚

  2. Great list! So many awesome summery covers and a few that I also had on my list πŸ˜‚ Honestly, all of these book covers make me wanna go to some beachy or poolside retreat and read them!


  3. I love your choices. We have some that are the same. I forgot about Malibu Rising when I did my list. I really want to read Love & Gelato. I’ve heard such great things about it.
