Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created & hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is:
Since we can make this as specific as we want, or just keep it to a general theme, I think I’ll go with in general and throw all my favorite pretties out there. It gives me more to work with, and I am a lady who likes options! 🙂 These are in no particular order, by the way.
1) Jane Austen: Seven Novels, the leatherbound classics edition from Barnes and Noble. My husband bought this for me as a gift for my birthday and I just really fell in love with the beautiful cover. There’s gold leaf, embossing, the colors are vivid and the design is delicate. It’s an imminently feminine book and I just adore seeing it on my shelf. Granted, it’s SO pretty that I don’t want to read it and mar the pages, but…still. Love.
2) A Horse Called Wonder by Joanna Campbell. My grandmother bought this book and the next three in the series for me (I guess around 1991, 1992 – soon after the books began to be published. I was just 9 or 10 years old, aww!) during one of our shopping expeditions. We bought them at Waldenbooks in Edgewater Mall and it was around 4 in the afternoon. She was wearing a red shirt and I had on my favorite boots because we were on our way to my Mom’s house to ride MY NEW HORSE! Oh yes. Every time I see this cover, I remember that day. Aside from that, the story’s great and there’s a horse on the cover. I mean, come on, that’s enough to make me love it right there. 🙂
