Top Ten Tuesday: Book Covers That Feel Like Summer


Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

A red, yellow, and orange umbrella framed against a blue summer sky that has a few fluffy white clouds floating by in it. This was such a fun and easy prompt to do!

Summer makes me think of ice cream, cookouts, picnics, sand, sunscreen, swimming, beaches, sandals, swimsuits, and more.

I tried to incorporate as many different types of these images and similar images into my response as possible.

No, I have not read these books yet. I tend to read a lot of science fiction that has nothing at all to do with typical summer topics, so I had to get a bit creative in order to participate.

If you have read any of these books, I’d love to hear what you thought of them!

  1. Some lovely summery books there. I love the “Love & Gelato” cover. And I know “We Had a Picnic This Sunday Past”, we sold them in our school book sales, I believe.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week.

  2. You incorporated a lot of iconic summer themes here. Great job!

    My aunt and uncle spent a month in Argentina several years ago. One of their friends is originally from Argentina so they visited his family ranch. They still get a faraway look in their eyes when they talk about the Argentinian cookout they had there. Apparently Argentinians are grill wizards 🙂

  3. I read so many summery books, but have not read any of these. I will see if my library has that picture book to read to my grandkids. Great choices Lydia.

  4. Thanks for commenting on my post. Sorry it has taken me a little bit to get back to you. I’ve been exhausted from moving and unpacking. I’m sure you understand.

    Love & Gelato has been on my TBR for a few years now. I really need to read it. I love its cover so much! Great choices.

  5. Love and Gelato is really cute – I hope you like that one!
    Murder Cuts the Mustard looks like such a great summer cozy mystery.
    Enjoy!

  6. I read one of Jenna’s contemporary novels and thought it was quite cute. I don’t think it was the one you featured though. But I do own it and want to give it a read too. 🙂 Hope you enjoy these if you do read them. Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland on this week, Lydia. Apologies it took so long to visit here.
