Top Ten Tuesday: Books with Red, White, & Blue Covers

So, you guys may notice it’s Thursday today, but I’m doing TTT today anyway because I’m really sad I missed it! I had tons of work, especially because of 4th of July (I work for a Texan company), so I was swamped, but I’m getting back to regular blogging now! Thursday begins with a T, so I don’t see a problem here. 😛 This week’s topic is about red, blue and white covers, in honor of 4th of July and America, but we can choose our own country’s colors if we want, and it just so happens that my country’s flag has the same colors, yay!

So, I’ll celebrate my own county with these ten covers. Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by  That Artsy Reader Girl, and every Tuesday there is a different themed post of top 10 things. Here we go:

1. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

6288724

This is my edition of one of my favorite books in the world, which I’ve had since 2002, and it’s still in good condition.

2. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

2

Of course I had to include HP, and it’s the bluest book I own (and the fattest).

3. The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell

23301545

I don’t own any pure white books, so this beauty is close enough, with the amazing illustrations by Chris Riddell.

4. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke

823763

My copy of this superb novel is red, though I prefer the black one, but this one was cheaper. 😛

5. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

10964

I know you’re screaming internally now because I’m including Outlander for the umpteenth time, but this is the bluest cover ever. It’s screaming blue right at ya.

6. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

17347389

Another mostly white cover, and even though I could have chosen any of the four from this series, this one has blue, red and white on it. So.

7. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

9591398

Here we go again with the awesome book I’ve read and still haven’t reviewed. The review is coming tomorrow, promise. My copy is actually pale orange, as I’ve been stupid enough not to check if it matches the entire series, so now I’ll have a mismatched set, eh.

8. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

12232938

Blue as it gets. Lovely book, but oh so horrible at the same time.

9. A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

A Gathering of Shadows Final

I could have chosen any cover from this series too, but this one is my favorite! I love these covers so much, Victoria has some awesome illustrators on board.

10. Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett

15798106

And an obligatory Pratchett! It’s more red in reality, and it’s one of my favorite ones. (Witches vs. Fae psst)


 

And that is it for this Tuesday Thursday! I’m preparing a bunch of reviews soon, since I’ve been slacking in that department, and I’m getting to all the tags I’m overdue on, cross my heart! What have you guys been up to?

  1. Don’t worry about being late to post! I’m planning on doing a Top 5 Wednesday today just because I hate missing them too – better late than never! Lovely list as always. Isn’t Sleeper and the Spindle just gorgeous though? My friend gave me a copy for a birthday gift and I was so happy to have been given it, I love the story and the illustrations are just wonderful!

    1. Hahaha I obviously don’t, since I’m doing what I want lately, breaking the rules and so on. 😂 Thanks! Ooh it is, I adore the illustrations, I have The Graveyard Book illustrated by the same guy, it’s beautiful. 😊 And the story is beautiful of course. 😊

    1. Thanks Amalia! The first one is very short and like a fairy tale with illustrations, the second one seems to have mixed reviews, it’s devastating but also beautiful. 🙂 I loved the movie too, even though they chopped the book severely. 😀
