Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is Colourful Book Covers.
All of the books I have here I’ve either read or have waiting for me on my shelves. I felt like this topic was so wide that I needed to narrow it down a little bit for myself.
Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson
Is it really a Top Ten Tuesday list if I don’t mention Tiffany D. Jackson at least once? She has been truly blessed with all of her covers so far, but I adore the bright red of Monday’s Not Coming. I think red covers in general, look extremely striking on bookshelves, but I particularly love this one for its simplicity.
Malamander by Thomas Taylor
Speaking of people who have been blessed with beautiful covers. Both books in this series so far are beautiful and vibrant. I have a few other pink and purple covers on this list so I wanted to pick this one over the sequel, Gargantis, because of its beautiful blue and yellow colour scheme.
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
I adore watercolours—I think it’s such a gorgeous art technique and I especially love them on book covers like this. It’s such a unique and interesting cover and from what I’ve read of this book so far, it kind of fits with the uniqueness of the book too.
Please Don’t Hug Me by Kay Kerr
I mean, pink and donuts on the cover? How lucky is Kay Kerr? I love this one for it’s simplicity and for the vividness. I haven’t read this yet so I can’t comment on the relevance of the donuts, but since this one is out from Text Publishing, I’m sure there’s something.
Furia by Yamile Saied Méndez
This one is kind of simple as well. I love the orange background with the yellow of her shirt and the title in red contrasted against her dark hair with the bluish tint to it. Maybe it’s not the most gorgeous cover on this list, but the colours just work so well together.
Rayne and Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner
This colour scheme right here is my happy place. Purple was always my favourite colour growing up, and while now I think it’s probably yellow, I still really enjoying this sort of purple-blue-pink theme. I don’t know what it is about it, I just love it. This book is also incredible so that might have something to do with it.
Australia Day by Melanie Cheng
This one is a very simple cover, but I love the yellow-orange of the background. It looks kind of like a sunshine yellow in this picture, but the physical copy has more of an orange tint to it as well. It’s such a unique colour for a cover and it’s absolutely stunning.
Ordinary Matter by Laura Elvery
Again, I don’t know what it is about this one but it just makes me really happy. I’m not usually into these sort of really, really bright colours when it comes to anything other than books but it just works. I love the pops of pink and green too.
The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai
I absolutely had to talk about this book. For one, I think this original rainbow cover is gorgeous, but it’s also one of my top three favourite books of all time. This picture doesn’t quite do the colours justice. But don’t let the colourful cover fool you, this book will rip out your heart multiple times but you’ll still want to thank Rebecca Makkai by the end of it.
The Extraordinaries by TJ Klune
I love that this one has a sort of sunset look about it. I love sunsets like these and I’m lucky enough to see them pretty often around here, but even just the colours make me happy. I’m reading this one right now, though I have a different cover. It’s really funny so far, but I am struggling a little bit with it.
And that’s it for today. Have you read any of these? What are your favourite colourful covers?

I thought ‘Please Don’t Hug Me’ was terrific! I thought those were Cheerios on the cover though?
I adored The Great Believers even if it did break my heart….lots.
Beautiful book covers – colour always drags me in
The Extraordinaries has such a lovely cover. TJ Klune gets some great covers anyway.
Before seeing your post I’d forgotten I’d read (and enjoyed) Made You Up and that cover definitely suits this theme.
The Great Believers has such a great cover.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
Monday’s Not Coming does have an amazing cover.

I love that cover for Malamander! I’ve never heard of it so I’ll have to look into that one. Also I agree with Ordinary Matter. I have no idea what its about but that cover makes me happy lol Happy reading!
