Top Ten Tuesday: Roses on the Cover

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!  This week’s theme was a cover freebie.  I love roses on book covers!  Consequently, I decided to browse the lists on Goodreads and find some beautiful book covers that feature roses.  Let’s get to the list!

Beauty by Robin McKinley-Definitely a favorite of mine!


Rose Daughter by Robin McKinley


Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte-I love black and red together.


Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen-I wish my copy of Pride and Prejudice was this pretty!


Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge-This has been on my tbr forever.

Miss Delacourt Speaks her Mind by Heidi Ashworth


Touched by Corrine Jackson


The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly


Death by Darjeeling by Laura Childs-The roses aren’t front and center on this one, but they still make the setting look lovely and cozy!  It sounds like a good cozy mystery too.



Clearly I love a red or pink rose on a black background!  I’ve read some of these, but not all.  If you have read them, let me know what you think!


  1. Wow some great new covers for old classics.

    • I agree! I have several of the classics, but my editions aren’t as pretty.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  2. The only one of these I’ve read is Wintersong, the cover was gorgeous but wasn’t a massive fan of the book.
    My TTT:

  3. Wintersong is a really great book! I hope you love it!
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday!
    Happy Reading! 🙂

    • I do love the cover so I’ll have to find a copy and give it a try someday!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. 🙂

  4. I love that you did roses. I hadn’t thought about how many books have them on the cover before.

    • I didn’t realize how many there are either. I could have made a much longer list!

      Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  5. This is a nice list. It’s clear there are some specific genres that like to feature roses on their books but it works well

  6. Isn’t it weird how covers take on a theme after one really popular cover hits the scene. In this case, I’d say the cover was Twilight.

    • Yes, I can see the Twilight inspiration in the color theme. Black and red are just so classic!

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  7. Found you from That Artsy Reader Girl.

    Wow! I had no idea Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights had rose covers too. For a minute, I thought Twilight had a rose too– then went and checked. No, it’s an apple. Glad to e-meet a McKinley fan. 🙂

    My top 10 Tuesday is just random TBR book covers (

    • I love these covers for Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights! I didn’t know they existed either until I went searching for rose covers.

  13. The Wuthering Heights and Pride & Prejudice covers are simply breathtaking!!

  14. Wow! Love so many of these covers. I hadn’t heard of Beauty. I’ll need to check it out. I’ve never read Wuthering Heights or Pride & Prejudice. I’m so bad with classics.

    Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog.

    • You’re welcome!

      I’m glad you enjoyed my list. I love Beauty! You’ll have to let me know what you think if you get a chance to read it. I really enjoy reading classics, but it does take a certain mindset to get into them due to the different style. I definitely recommend Pride and Prejudice. I’ve only read Wuthering Heights once. It is definitely intense. I’d read it again, but I’d have to be in the right mood for it.
