Top Ten Tuesday

It's another freebie week this week so I'm going to pick a nice and easy topic because  as I mentioned in my last post I'm a very busy bee with Uni work at the minute! I'm going to do a split topic this week so ere are my:

Top Ten Five Most OCD-ish Book Habits:

1) I always read the authors note/dedications the second after I've finished the book and not before.

2) If there's a particular piece of writing I like, a phrase or some dialogue, I fold the bottom page corner, even though I hate the idea of folding a corner to mark where I'm up to.

3) I never ever write in my books. (I used to when I was little, every book I owned was marked as mine and now I hate the idea.)

4) I have to take a book with me pretty much anywhere it's socially accepted. (meaning you won't find me turning pages in a bar...but anywhere else, don't be surprised.)

5) Every new (or new to me!) book shall receive a cursory whiff. Nothing beats the smell of a book.

Top Ten Five Favourite Book Covers:
Note: There are countless numbers of beautiful book covers in the world, some which I one day hope to own, but these five are just some of  my favourite covers from my own collection, they don't have deep meaning nor do I have attachments to the artists, I just find them aesthetically pleasing.

1) The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath. For me, this image so contradicts the writing inside, I think that's why I like it.

2) Haunted - Chuck Palahniuk. (Hardback) I do love a dust-jacket that's part of the design inside.

3) Lullaby - Chuck Palahniuk (I know, I know, but what can I say, I've admitted my love for him already!) I just enjoy looking at this. My eyes like it. 

4) Damned - Chuck Palahniuk - (Hardback) I'm not sure why I automatically thought of this cover, but I did. It is a pretty good representation of what you find inside I suppose, and I like that it's such a simple, almost childish interpretation.

5) The Lords & The New Creatures - Jim Morrison. This book is not a novel, it's a collection of Morrison's poetry and I like the cover simply because when I see it I can hear Morrison voice in my head bellowing "I am the lizard King. I can do anything."


  1. I did book covers too, it was a great choice ;)

    Sylvia Plath is a wonderful author and I think her story is just so tragic. Gorgeously sad poetry though.
