Top 10 Tuesday — Cover Love

8 May

Favorite color is the theme of Top 10 Tuesday this week, either in title or cover. While looking at covers, I found so many lovely gowns in a rainbow of colors that I couldn’t resist featuring them. So this post goes in a slightly different direction, but don’t you love the dresses featured on these historical romances?!

    All of these are stunning! I love covers like these, with the focus zoomed in on stays or lace or textured fabric. Great list, I’ll have to check these out.
    My TTT this week.

    Yes, I love the beautiful dresses. I’ve always wanted to read The Selection because of the beautiful dress on the cover.

      That is an eye-catching cover.

    I love Mayflower Bride. The red pops! And it seems such a contrast from the austere black usually pictured when we think of pilgrims on the Mayflower.

    All the gowns are lovely, but they don’t look very comfortable or practical. For example, the lacy sleeves near the wrists might get caught on door handles and other objects. The simple gown worn on the cover of The Captured Bride looks the most comfortable/practical, not in smoothness of fabric but in the way it fits the body. The sleeves taper at the wrists, the waist looks looser than the waists of the fancier gowns, and the neckline is more open–less scratchy or “tickly”–and cooler in case of warm weather. So the captured bride, which I haven’t read, probably does more work around the house in her simpler gown.

    I like the gown on The Mark of the King.

      It’s very striking, isn’t it?

    Such pretty dresses! I think Mark of the King is my favorite of these. Several of Tamera Alexander’s books have pretty dresses, too!

      I forgot about Alexander’s covers. I’ve only read a couple of her books.
