Top Ten Tuesday: Colourful Book Covers

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Multicolored paint dripping down a white backgroundI narrowed this week’s prompt down a little bit. The original theme was so broad that I wasn’t sure where to begin.

You could interpret it to be about rainbow covers, or brightly-coloured covers, or books that include as many different colours in them as possible.

Honestly, even those interpretations are only barely scratching the surface of possibilities!

Therefore, my amended response to the prompt is of colourful book covers that are also artistic and beautiful.


Half-Blood (Covenant, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout book cover. Image on cover is of a glowing purple flower.

    Life As We Knew It is such a great book inside and out.

    Meanwhile, the cover for Half-Blood is AMAZING. I’d buy notebooks w/ that image on it. I’d frame it for wall art.
