Top Ten Tuesday: Covers with people but no faces

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by ThatArtsyReaderGirl!

Today’s topic is ‘Cover Freebie’, aka ‘pick something cover-related’. So I chose covers that have people on them but don’t have any faces.

I own about fifteen books that fall under this category, and seven of them are read. I featured those seven, plus three I haven’t read yet – they’re the ones I’m most excited to read out of the rest, so that’s why they’ve made the cut!


Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennet, Sea of Ghosts by Alan Campbell, and Agincourt by Bernard Cornwell are the three unread books in this week’s list. The first two are fantasy, the second in particular being by one of my favorite authors, so why I haven’t read it yet I don’t know. The third is historical fiction!

  • The Martian by Andy Weir was my favorite book of 2015 (or 2016? I don’t remember)
  • Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones I read I think either earlier this year or late last year, it’s all a blur at this point
  • Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson I read way back when, shortly after I started dating my husband, at his suggestion. When he suggested me a book I got all excited because it was like ‘yes he likes reading too, this might work out’. So this one holds a special place in my heart.
  • The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks I read a few years ago and loved. I mention this series I swear every other post. Man, this is a good’un.
  • Golden Fool by Robin Hobb – Out of all the books here, this one is probably my favorite. I love all of Robin Hobb’s books but this one in particular blew me away, man.
  • The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson is one of those books that I almost bought fifty times, and then finally took the plunge and picked up. I ended up rather liking it, too.
  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern was such a magical read. I know the author came out with another book recently and I’ve been meaning to get it. If it’s anything like this book, it’ll be enthralling.

And that’s it! I’m hoping I took a unique spin on this topic, but if you did this same thing, I apologize for copying! At the time of writing this, I haven’t read anyone else’s posts yet so I promise it wasn’t intentional.

Happy reading!
