Book Recommendations by Colour

Book Recommendations by Colour

I’ve really been enjoying doing more book recommendation posts recently (check out my fantasy and historical fiction recs!), so I thought I’d do a fun post today where I recommend books based on the colour of the cover! I’m just basing this off the book covers I’m most familiar with and/or own, and I have to say, I was quite surprised by how easy it was to think of books for some colours, but hard for others.

The Pros and Cons of Book Recommendations

The Pros and Cons of Book Recommendations

Seen as I don’t have all that many bookish friends in real life, it isn’t very often that I either give or receive book recommendations (outside of the blogosphere), and in some ways I’m quite glad about that. There’s a certain level of pressure that comes with both offering or receiving a book recommendation unless it’s someone you know very well (eg. a sibling, a partner or possibly a very close friend), although it can lead you to some amazing books as well. Therefore I thought I’d do a little pros and cons list (I do love doing those!) about book recommendations,… Read more »
