Top Ten Tuesday: Rubber Duckie Book Covers

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Three rubber duckies sitting on the edge of a white bathtubI don’t know about all of you, but I’m sure in the mood for lighthearted and dare I say slightly silly conversations at the moment.

For example, did you know there are dozens of books out there that feature rubber duckies on their covers?

I have no idea how or why this ever became a trend, but it does make me smile.

Have you read any of these books? Do you have a rubber duckie sitting on the edge of your bathtub at this exact moment?

    • Yay for maroon duckies! I’m so glad you enjoyed this post. I was poking around on Goodreads and wondered how many other books with rubber duckies I could find on covers. The rest is history. 🙂

  1. Love this list idea! I doubt I have as many rubber duckies present on my TBR, but it gives me ideas for future freebies, and for that I am grateful!

  2. Wow, this post was illuminating! I had no idea there were so many books with rubber duckies on the cover?! Also, some of these covers and titles have me really laughing out loud and shaking my head. Too funny! Awesome take for this week’s topic 🙂
