Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.
So this week is part two of my cover freebie featuring favorite covers. I'm spotlighting Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys covers, along with a couple tongue-in-cheek takeoffs on the originals. Enjoy!
Always fun to look at the vintage designs of these types of books. I bought some of the newer releases of Nancy Drew in the "old style" (like the same size and in hardcover). Don't know that I'll read them, but it's fun to collect them. :)ReplyDelete
I still need to do those covers for you at school. Love these!ReplyDelete
Have you re-read any of these as an adult?
Happy TTT and here's my Ten books to proof the world does revolve around me
Lol at They're Fucked.ReplyDelete
Great list! There's something so charming about these old covers.ReplyDelete
Love your covers! I just noticed today how similar some of these covers are to the old Choose Your Own Adventure books. Same era, I guess.ReplyDelete
The Nancy Drew titles are much more interesting sounding than the Hardy Boys titles! 😁ReplyDelete
Nice picks! I remember a few of these Nancy Drew ones!ReplyDelete
Here's my Tuesday Post

Here's my Top Ten Tuesday!
Happy reading! :)
I still think these series have some of the best covers. And the ones you added were hilarious. We Dead. LOLReplyDelete
Can you feel a book cover just by looking at them? I can feel the particular hardback of these that was very common to see in school libraries.ReplyDelete
Heheheh We Dead! I love these spoof covers! Great selection.ReplyDelete
I love these covers, they are just so classic and fun! I'm also a fan of the tongue-in-cheek ones as well. :) Seeing the titles on those Nancy Drew ones take me right back to reading them!ReplyDelete
I love the old covers for Nancy Drew! So fun! Here is my Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.ReplyDelete
OKay. You are spoofing us. Seeing if we are paying attention, right? "We Dead" and "They're fucked". Ha!ReplyDelete
I never read much of Nancy Drew or The Hardy Boys when I was young. I didn't enjoy mysteries back then. But it is fun to see that retro aesthetic. I especially like your spoofs!ReplyDelete
Another week of you indulging me in nostalgia. I love how funny you got with it - They're Fucked LOLReplyDelete
LOL!!! I love those parody covers! I definitely need to read the original Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series!ReplyDelete

Karen @ For What It's Worth
LOL "We Dead" - good one!ReplyDelete
Haha, I love these vintage books (and the parodies). They remind me of the books I grew up reading. Those had brilliantly awful covers.ReplyDelete
Aj @ Read All The Things!
"We Dead" will never NOT make me laugh! Also... I genuinely cannot tell if the Chums one is real or fake so... well done either way to that title person 😂ReplyDelete
😂😂😂 I spit out my juice when I saw your tongue in cheek ones! Omg Greg!ReplyDelete
Love that you used the original covers and that you blended in some of the satirical covers. They're funnyReplyDelete
loving it, the originals and the edited ones, lolReplyDelete
The fake Hardy Boys covers are priceless. Love those. :)ReplyDelete
Fantastic! Nancy Drew covers are my absolute favorite and Hardy Boys are a close second though I didn't read nearly as many as a kid. I had to laugh at the fake covers. Too funny!ReplyDelete
I really love those cheeky covers! I'd LOVE to be reading that on a bus!ReplyDelete
Brilliant, I love the two funny 'takes' on the original covers.ReplyDelete
