Top Ten Tuesday

10 Books with Red, White, or Blue Covers

So I hear there’s some big celebration in America happening tomorrow and this weeks Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl is all about your countries flag. Which is very appropriate given England are playing in the World Cup today!

As an UK/Aussie blogger my flags’ colours are red, white and blue too so here are 10 pretty red, white or blue coloured books!

1. Shades of Magic by VE Schwab

In red inside and out! There’s Red London, where the river is red and it’s all gleaming and the covers and spine are red for this series.

2. Gilded Cage by Vic James

Having read this recently I can confirm that the cover is blindingly white, with dark lettering across it. Also sorry about the grey, white text wasn’t really visible.

3. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

If you are following me at all on Instagram you’ll know how much I love snapping pictures of this series- the glittery lettering, swirling patterns and that slither of a half moon over an Aladdin backdrop, they’re just so photogenic.

4. The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

Second in The Bone Season series this dystopian-esque novel boasts a red cover with a flower in the centre.

5. The Fandom by Anna Day

Ok, yes the cover is most definitely not white, but before you feel to cheated the proof I picked up from YALC was white with a red strip on the top and bottom (a lot less pretty than the final cover in my opinion) so I’m counting it!

6. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

We’ve had The Mime Order so why not it’s predecessor? It’s got a pretty blue spine and a blue cover, also featuring a flower.

7. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

After the heart wrenching story of Code Name Verity I rushed to grab another book by this author- the red covered Rose Under Fire. Anyone read Code Name Verity?

8. The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater

Other than the large, black raven this book is mostly a white covered book.

9. Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser

This has definitely not been sitting on my shelf for far too long… noooo not at all.

10. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Because who doesn’t like a good throw back? There was a red edition of this and with the name ‘fire’ in the title I think the redness is implied.

  1. Great choices! It’s so funny that I’m seeing all these Red, White and Blue covers for several different countries! It’s like they all wanted to copy each other’s colors! lol

  2. There’s so many books that I love on your list! I totally agree about Alwyn Hamilton’s books, they’re so gorgeous. And Code Name Verity is probably one of the most heartbreaking books I have ever read (not that it’s stopping me from wanting to reread it!)
