Today I'm linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for a Top Ten Tuesday.
This week's topic: Top Ten Books I Wish Had (More/Less) X In Them
The Scorpio Races // Maggie Stiefvater
I. want. to. see. the. capaill. uisce. And also Thisby, and the festivals, and everything.
The closest I can get is fanart and it's just not doing it for me.
The Night Circus // Erin Morgenstern
This book is just so visually stunning even without actually seeing it. Can you imagine all the back/white/red wonderfulness?
It would be like if Tim Burton threw a rave.
The Lunar Chronicles // Marissa Meyer
This is now somewhat of a dream come true? The graphic novel Wires and Nerve literally just came out and I neeeeed it. But I really want the whole series in a graphic novel. Please, Marissa. Please.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians // Rick Riordan
Why doesn't this series have beginning-chapter illustrations?
Rick really needs to step up his game.
Dorothy Must Die // Danielle Paige
I can hear you now: but Emily we literally have the most wonderful, beautiful movie what else do you need?
Well this retelling is creepy and dark and brutal and I need pictures please.
The Graveyard Book // Neil Gaiman
In all fairness I'm not sure if this book actually has illustrations or not because I listened to the audiobook (which was great, btw. full cast. highly recommend). But I'd like to have some pictures too. Can audiobooks come with companion illustration books?
Ender's Game // Orson Scott Card
Honestly, I didn't like this book. I felt it boring and mechanical and just...bleh. Pictures would have helped tremendously.
These Broken Stars // Amie Kaufman
I somehow read this book in a single day but didn't really like it. It was so weird. It was maybe the weirdest book I've ever read (my review on Goodreads: this book is weird). Partly because they're on a weird planet for most of it, which would have made some great illustrations.
I'll Give You the Sun // Jandy Nelson
Like the Night Circus, the language in this book is so visual and breathing, and it's about art, and I just feel like it really needs some illustrations here and there. (Again, I listened to this on audio, so it might actually have illustrations? But I'm assuming it doesn't.)
Made You Up // Francesca Zappia
Look at that cover! Can you imagine if this book had included illustrations?
I want to see what Alex says!
currently listening to: Dear Hank & John, ep. 80
What book do you wish had pictures in it?
(also do other Harry Potter editions have beginning-chapter illustrations? This is very important.)
