Top Ten Tuesday: Covers with Gowns I Want to Wear

Hi there!

I skipped out on my Top Ten post last Tuesday because life got kind of busy and I kind of forgot about it! Oh well! It’s to be expected because the end of the school year is always a busy and exhausting time.  But I’m back this week! Yay!

For those of you who arent’ familiar with it, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Every week they post a theme and we create a list surrounding that theme. This week the theme is Favorite Book Covers of Books I’ve Read. I have such a hard time choosing on favorite covers because I like to many different types of covers for so many varied reasons.  So, instead of picking favorites, this week I’m choosing based on Book Covers with Gowns I Want to Wear.

So gorgeous!!

I love the breezy flow to this one. I do prefer the dress on the cover of Endlessly, but I haven’t read it yet so it doesn’t count.

I’m sure it would be insanely heavy but just standing it in for an hour would make me happy.

I do love this one’s fluff, but to be honest I prefer the one on the cover to The Elite…but I haven’t read that one yet.

A slinky little one!

I must add that I completely disliked this book. But I can’t help but love that gown!!!

I love the way it flows and it’s purely fairy tale style.

Matched by Allie Condie9. Matched by Ally Condie

It’s just so green and soft looking!

Its Victorian!!!

Aren’t they all so beautiful?! I would love to wear them! There are TONS of other gorgeous gowns on book covers that I also love but I haven’t read them yet or else they’d be on this list. :)

Are there any dresses on book covers that you just wish you could wear? Which of these are your favorites?

  1. I love the topic you chose! Those gowns are GORGEOUS! But I think I’d be too scared of dropping food or getting them dirty to actually enjoy wearing them. I think my favourites are the dresses on Entwined and The Clockwork Princess. Great list!

  2. Haha, I wish I’d have thought of the gown topic – amazing! And I love all of your choices – especially Clockwork Princess! That gown I’d sleep in…if I could :) Also, if you liked the Selection you should read the Elite. It’s even more entertaining, I think. And if you don’t like it, well, you at least have a new gown to add to the collection :)

    • I do love Tessa’s on CP2! I love that front gather thing I have no idea what it’s called. Hahah But I started to read The Elite and a student really wanted it so I let her check it out instead b/c I knew it’d take her like 3 hours to finish it. She has returned it so I plan on snagging it today. :)

  3. Not going to lie… I LOVE the cover of Matched! That dress! I want to wear it oh so bad! All of these are such pretty pretty dresses… one day I’ll wear a dress like these! :)

  4. I buy about half of the books I do because they have pretty gowns on them. That’s the reason I bought Entwined. And The Luxe. And Matched. And…I should probably stop talking now.

  5. I’m always attracted to girls in pretty dresses on book covers, too. I particularly love the cover for Entwined, but I haven’t read the book yet. I really need to get on that. And Clockwork Princess is gorgeous. I love the rosie tone.

  6. I love a good gown. Like, I often wish we were in the past so I could get away with wearing a hoop skirt for at least a day. Haha. I really love the dressed on The Selection and E&E. Who am I kidding? They’re all pretty, aren’t they?
