This was one of those prompts that I was absolutely convinced I had already done not too long ago, to the point where I even thought I remembered some of the books that I’d chosen. When I went back through my posts to try to find the previous one to make sure I didn’t duplicate all my choices, I realized that it didn’t actually exist! The most recent post I could find involving animals was from literally one year ago, and that was about animals from books, not necessarily a cover-specific prompt. I find it so confusing when I have such a distinctive memory of making a post on a topic only to find that it never happened! In any case, at least it meant that most of the options I had in mind could safely be used without being repeats. Even with that in mind, I still decided to look through some of the more recent additions to my list to see what other animals I’d find, and I especially was on the lookout for more unusual animals instead of just dogs and cats every time. I was surprised that I managed to find quite a variety! I was a little surprised that there pages of my TBR with lots of animals, and then huge gaps where not a single cover showed any animals. It’s possible that I may have missed a few if the animal wasn’t shown very prominently, though.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
