Ten Books With My Favourite Colour On The Cover/In The Title

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

I really like the prompt this week! It’s all about book with our favourite colour either on the cover or in the title. My favourite colour is pink and I especially like pastel pink!

I haven’t necessarily read these books, they’re just pink covers I’m aware of! 🙂

I’ve seen this book around and I think I want to read it!

I hadn’t heard of this book before but I love the pink-y hue.

I love this edition. So beautiful! ❤

This is such a simple cover but it makes such a statement.

I love a purple-y pink. I’m reading this soon and I’m super intrigued!

Pretty, pretty colours. I love this book cover!

I really enjoyed this book. It’s about a girl who was disfigured after a tragic accident.

I love the colours used on this cover. The story is super cute too.

I love simple and a touch of pink!

I Believe in a Thing Called Love

I adore this pop of pink!

This feature is going to showcase some recent reads that I haven’t fully reviewed. This may be because I didn’t finish the book or that I didn’t have enough to say to warrant a full and fair review of a book that I’m sure others will absolutely adore. I figure this way the books will be highlighted and someone somewhere might find the right book for them!

Chart Throb- Ben Elton

Chart Throb

95,000 hopefuls. Three judges. Just one winner. 

And that’s Colin Simms, the genius behind the show. 

Colin always wins, because Colin writes the rules. But this year, as he sits smugly in judgment on the mingers, clingers and blingers whom he has pre-selected in his carefully scripted “search” for a star, he has no idea that the rules are changing. The “real” is about to be put back into “reality” television, and Colin and his fellow judges (the nation’s favourite mum and the other bloke) are about to become ex-factors themselves.

The Poet X- Elizabeth Acevedo

The Poet X

A young girl in Harlem discovers slam poetry as a way to understand her mother’s religion and her own relationship to the world. Debut novel of renowned slam poet Elizabeth Acevedo.

Xiomara Batista feels unheard and unable to hide in her Harlem neighborhood. Ever since her body grew into curves, she has learned to let her fists and her fierceness do the talking.

But Xiomara has plenty she wants to say, and she pours all her frustration and passion onto the pages of a leather notebook, reciting the words to herself like prayers—especially after she catches feelings for a boy in her bio class named Aman, who her family can never know about. With Mami’s determination to force her daughter to obey the laws of the church, Xiomara understands that her thoughts are best kept to herself.

So when she is invited to join her school’s slam poetry club, she doesn’t know how she could ever attend without her mami finding out, much less speak her words out loud. But still, she can’t stop thinking about performing her poems.

Because in the face of a world that may not want to hear her, Xiomara refuses to be silent.
