Top Ten Tuesday

Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl invited us to share ten colorful book covers this week. I thought about choosing ten covers with crazy colors but I couldn’t think of any books I’ve read to fit that prompt. So instead, I made my own rainbow of covers, choosing one cover to represent each color of the rainbow and added pink, white, and black to get ten. Click the title to read my review.

    1. Oh, I chose some good titles for this one. You might like I Capture the Castle and The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. I know you lean more toward fantasy but those main characters are something special. I hesitate to recommend any Game of Thrones books until we see if Martin ever actually finishes the series and if he ends it as badly as the HBO writers did.

      1. Yeah, Game of Thrones is on my list of books to not read. Partly because of the unlikely series conclusion, partly because of the book length, and partly because of the content. Too much dark stuff for me to want to pick it up.

    1. I haven’t read any of the Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet series. I did read The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate and was slightly disappointed in it after loving the first book so much. I don’t think I’ll read more.

  1. I like your color matching on the covers and the book titles! I never really think much about book cover design, but I can see (now that it’s been pointed out to me!) how The Glass Castle gives the impression of glass.

  2. Yeah, this week’s TTT topic was as difficult as last week’s. I think in terms of book covers, Glass Castle is of a unique coloring — it really does give that glass effect somehow.

  3. Nice take on the topic! I’ve read Circe and I Capture the Castle, and loved both. I especially like the cover for “She-Rain”, that is a beautiful example of monochrome design.

    1. Circe and I Capture the Castle are both excellent! She-Rain is set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where home is for me. The cover is so evocative of the mist on the mountains, which is what the title refers to. It’s beautifully done.
