Top 5 Tuesday is a meme hosted by Shanah over at Bionic Book Worm.
I so wanted to do this one earlier in the week, but I simply did not have the time. Plus, Rose over at Stuck in Fiction. also did a post on naked hardbacks a couple of weeks ago, which inspired me.
Now, I don’t have a ton of hardbacks, because I tend to prefer reading paperbacks, but I have accumulated some and some of them are definitely worth mentioning.
My lot with their coats on:
Now, let’s get undressed!
1. Circe (Madeline Miller)
I actually purchased this hardback because of the stunning cover and naked hardback. I saw it on Booktube somewhere and just knew it would me happy just looking at it! It just is stunning, naked or otherwise. The contents are pretty awesome too 🙂
2. The History of Bees (Maja Lunde)
Another stunning naked hardback. So pretty with the honeycomb pattern.
3. Talking To The Dead (Helen Dunmore)
Actually, I did not love this book when I read it (it was ok), but the cover and the naked hardback are so pretty (and small) I just have to keep it on my shelves forever! I love the pastel yellow and blue and just the overall design.
4. The Thoroughbred Legends Series
Back in the day I went through a phase of collecting a lot of horseracing related books and these are about various famous horses from North American racing. The naked hardback have the picture of the horse on it. They look pretty classy. I think I have seven of these.
5. On The Trail of the Silver Brumby (Elyne Mitchell)
I adore Elyne Mitchell’s writing and this is an anthology of her writing in a coffee table format with beautiful pictures. I love the bright blue naked hardback with the cute horse illustration.
If I missed your post please link below! I do like to drool over pretty books!
