Top Ten Tuesday: More Book Covers I'd Love to Jump Into

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blog meme now hosted by Jana over at The Artsy Reader Girl!

This week's topic is:  More Book Covers I'd Love to Jump Into

 A couple years ago I tweaked a TTT topic into 'book covers I'd love to jump into,' because I'm sure we've all seen covers that look so beautiful or exciting that you just can't help but want to jump into them. Since I made that post back in 2018 (and, frankly, I'm shocked at some of the covers I chose? I must have a death wish) and this week's TTT is along the lines of book places we'd love to visit (which I've also already done!), I figured I'd make an updated list of book covers I'd love to jump into with some books I've read since making that post--so let's dive in!

The Forever Sea (The Forever Sea, #1)The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea

The Forever Sea by Joshua Phillip Johnson
The Forever Sea, for all the stories about it being endless and terrifying, is still quite beautiful! I would love to jump onto that ship and take a sail through it--preferably an uneventful trip.

The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea by Maggie Tokuda-Hall
Another ship, because apparently I just really want to be on a ship (even though I am pretty terrified of open water?). But this just looks so fun and adventurous, I'd love to join in.

To Best the BoysBlood and Treasure: Daniel Boone and the Fight for America's First Frontier

To Best the Boys by Mary Weber
Maybe this is an odd one, but I absolutely love mazes and this maze just absolutely calls out to me! There really aren't enough real-life mazes out there...

Blood and Treasure: Daniel Boone and the Fight for America's First Frontier by Bob Drury & Tom Clavin
I love nature/hiking/exploring, so this setting pictured here just looks so enticing. I'd love to hop in and do some exploring (although I wouldn't go stealing land while I was there...)

A Tale of Magic... (A Tale of Magic, #1)The Hatmakers

A Tale of Magic... by Chris Colfer
This entire cover just looks like the most cliche'd (in the best way!) fantasy castle with all the creatures and incredible colors and lighting--there's no way I wouldn't want to visit this place. 

The Hatmakers by Tamzin Merchant
I love magical buildings and this building looks especially magical and fun. Also, I know all the fun hat-making things that go on in there and I would really like to get in on that!

BrightstormThe House in the Cerulean Sea

Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy
Not only is this a ship, but it's also flying and going on a adventure. I would absolutely jump on board. 

The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune
I mean, what more is there to say--who wouldn't love to visit this location? 

Balam, Spring (Ustlian Tales #1)Greenglass House (Greenglass House, #1)In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children, #4)

Balam, Spring by Travis M. Riddle
I love Balam and nothing looks more peaceful and amazing than this cover image of it! I'd really just like to take a vacation in this cover right now, haha. 

Greenglass House by Kate Milford
This is such a fun and cozy-looking inn. The wonky shape of it makes me imagine that it has a lot of neat places to explore, and the forest and snow all around just looks so magical and fun. 

In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire
And I know this makes eleven instead of just ten, but I couldn't pass this one up because if a door appeared on a tree... I'd desperately want to take a peak. Who wouldn't!? I feel like I've read enough fantasy to know that this probably wouldn't end well, but.. curiosity is a strong force to contend with!

What book covers do you want to jump into?


  1. Even though I get seasick, the covers with ships appeal to me so much! Maybe I'd be ok on the ship that runs over land!

  2. The Forever Sea sounds neat!

    My post: https://lydiaschoch.com/top-ten-tuesday-places-in-books-id-love-to-live/

  3. I love this take. I definitely agree about Cerulean Sea! Here's my TTT if you're interested: https://www.howdidthatbookend.com/ttt-places-in-books-id-love-to-live/

  4. So many of these are on my tbr pile - might just have to get to them soon! Every heart a doorway nearly made my list because of the portal worlds!

  5. I love this topic idea! All of these are gorgeous, I love the ones for The Forever Sea and The House in the Cerulean Sea the most though :)

  6. Great topic! I love those first two- I must have a thing for the sea too- and I love the Colfer cover as well.

    Love the look of greenglass House!

  7. I love the Wayward Children series, so I agree on this choice!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  8. The House in the Cerulean Sea would be amazing to visit!
