Summer Colours on my TBR

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

I like to spend the summer months, when the temperatures rise and the days are so much brighter, with a summery-hued book. Think blue for the sea (or a cloudless sky), and yellow sunshine and you’re exactly where I am.

If you know any book with these coloured covers please send it my way. But, these are the books I already have and that live on my TBR in the hope of being picked up soon.

My TBR Rainbow

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

I put a spin on this week’s topic and instead of sharing books with colourful titles, I’m going to put together a TBR of a book with each colour cover from my shelves.

Which of these should I start with? Or should I just go in colour order? If you’ve read one of these before, please make a case as to why it should be next on my TBR.

Book Titles That Make Great Crayola Colours

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

One thing I loved when I was younger was the weird names on Crayola pencils and crayons. I never usually had a set for myself (we were a Faber Castell family) but I’d often see them with my school friends.

One thing that will always stick out about Crayola is the interesting names they give their colours. You have your usual names, like sky blue (that was always a favourite colour of mine from the pack) but also some more out there ones such as Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown.

With this last one in mind, I took a look through my shelves to find some titles the colour naming department might be interested in.

Purple, Yellow and Green Books

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl

Today is Mardi Gras, and the colours associated with this holiday are purple, yellow, and green. Those three colours also happen to be my three favourites.

In fact, one of them features in my blog name, one is my national colour, and one of them is my absolute favourite colour. So, this week’s prompt seems like it was perfectly made for me.

I don’t feel like I have a whole lot of them on my bookshelves, but I do love a book with any of those colours. Have you read any of them?

Red and White Books to Make You Feel Festive

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

When I think about Christmas colours, I always think of colours like red, green, gold, or white. Red is such a Christmassy colour, and it absolutely dominates festive advertising or decorations. Of course, white is one of the ultimate Christmas colours. Who doesn’t wake up on Christmas morning and hope to see a blanket of white when they open the curtains?

For today’s Six for Sunday, I’ve put together a list of Christmassy books with festive colours. These will for sure bring some festive cheer to your reading in a year we need all the festive cheer we can muster.
