TeaserTuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. They created the meme because they love lists. Who doesn’t love lists? They wanted to share these list with fellow book lovers and ask that we share in return to connect with our fellow book lovers. To learn more about participating in the challenge, stop by their page dedicated to it and dive in!

This week’s topic: Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR
You know what I love and hate? 70s/80s/90s book covers. Many of them were so terrible, so absolutely laughable that they’re endeared to me now. So, this freebie goes out to some of the covers that have made me laugh until I cried. If you don’t like it…

You don’t need to know a thing about these books, just bask in the magnificence of these covers. Okay, all of them weren’t written in the 80s and one is a movie (like I wasn’t going to use a cover of Bruce Lee super punching a winged evil thing, okay). They’re in the spirit, though, and they are glorious. I might’ve slipped something extra in there. There were many other covers I could’ve added, but we would’ve been here all day. Click on them for their enlarged glory!

I want someone to draw me like their 80s ladies. ❤ Happy reading!

  1. WOW. This is epic ugliness at its finest. I think my favorite is the last ne Twilight of Briareus – that baby is creepy. If I have one complaint about Bujold’s Vorkosigan Saga it is that the covers are generally in this style and many of them quite hideous. Thankfully they should NOT be judged based on their cover!

    • Yeah, my plan is to actually finish the series this year. I’ve only read Falling Free. I definitely know the content can be good. I rather liked the garish covers for that series over the new covers they’ve gotten on my Kindle.

      Also, baby head is my favorite as well.

  2. I’ve never seen that Game of Thrones cover before; I don’t know what Robot Commando or Talisman of Death are about, but those cover as badass (Talisman my favorite) and I want to read them; Raven: The Frozen God though… WTF??? XD XD

    Outstanding collection of covers you pick Hahaha!

    • Not gonna lie, I’ve read many books based on the cover alone whether I hated the cover or loved it. LOL. Robot Commando, I remember being sort of a solo RPG type book where YOU are a dinosaur rancher. Same for Talisman of death except you’re the one who has the Talisman. Yeah, I’ve read or attempted to read many of these books, which is how they ended up on this list.

    • Of course a book with a huge baby head on it does indeed have a somewhat interesting premise. Maybe not as interesting as you’d think it would be with that cover, but definitely interesting. LOL.
