Top Ten Tuesday: Books feat. My Favorite Color — Red!

TTT-Big2

Technically, this topic is “books with your favorite color on the cover (or in the title). So I’m going to do a mix of both… Because I can. 🙂 I’ll also try to feature books I’ve read, some of my favorites, and books I’m excited for.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Girl. Check out the topics here.

I haven’t finished the Ruby Red trilogy yet. I listened to the first two via audiobook, and they were both enjoyable. I listened to the entire Red Rising series via audio, too, and it was fantastic! I’m rereading Red Queen right now, not only because the final book, War Storm, comes out next week, but also because the author will be on tour near me.

This post pleases me to no end, haha. It also makes me think back on all the great books I’ve read. Also, if you think I wouldn’t include The Winner’s Kiss–think again! *evil laughter* This Savage Song was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t care much for A Darker Shade of Magic *ducks under table* so reading this book was nice. 🙂

I went to my local indie a few weeks ago, and one of the employees told me I just had to read Scythe. Funny thing is that I’ve had that book on my shelves for… *cough* a long time now, but never got around to it. I will definitely do it soon! Now, I don’t own This Mortal Coil but I’ve heard good things, too! Puddin’ releases today actually, and the author will be in town for the Epic Reads Spring Tour… So once I make it through work, I get to see Julie tonight! I’ve already met her when she toured last year, and I have both Dumplin’ and Ramona Blue signed. I loved both of those, so I’m excited for the chance to get Puddin’ signed. 🙂

Last but not least…

The Court DancerSo while this book isn’t strictly red, I want to feature it because not only did Shin Kyung-Sook write the heart-wrenching Please Look After Mom, but The Court Dancer sounds equally lovely. It’s historical fiction, mixing both French and Korean histories, the opulent elegance of Paris and the last great Korean empire, the Joseon era. I seriously cannot wait!

Truth be told, I don’t venture far away from YA, but there are some books that seriously stick out to me and this is one of them. The cover is stunning. I love the brushstrokes and the woman in a hanbok.

 

 

Don’t forget to leave your TTT post below! I feel like all of them will be aesthetically pleasing because it’s all one color, HAHA.

    I love all these covers so much. They all are so gorgeous. I love how you did a mix of the topic. I think that’s so fun. I have Scythe taken out from the library. I really can’t wait to get to that one. I hope you end up enjoying it as well.
