'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Top Ten Tuesday #54

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at the wonderful blog Broke and Bookish.

This one is fairly easy for me. I absolutely adore beautiful books. They dive straight off the shelves and into my arms quicker than anything. I lovelovelove them! So here are my top ten:

Pride and Prejudice
Pictures do not do this book cover justice. It really doesn't. It is absolutely gorgeous and I need it so badly!

Jane Eyre
Another one of the redesigned Penguin Classics. I absolutely adore these quirky covers!

The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare (Alex Wayfare, #1)
I love this cover. I've loved it from the word go. It's beautiful. And I really like blue. A lot. 

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3)
This is my favourite cover so far. I adore it. It's kickass, it's a gorgeous cover. I need it! 

Cruel Beauty
I fall in love with this book a little more every time I see it. I can't get enough of it. It's absolutely gorgeous. 

Delirium (Delirium, #1)
I love the silhouette. I love the colours. I just love this cover. 

This cover is unbelievably cute. I need it. It sounds amazing too! 

Tigers in Red Weather
Tigers in Red Weather - Liza Klaussmann
It's so summery and bright! I love it. 

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - J. K. Rowling
Because this was the beginning of the most beautiful adventure and it means so much to me.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J. K. Rowling
Because this was the end of one of the most meaningful years of my life and I love it so much.
