It’s January which means it’s a list month extravaganza so here’s another list for you – this time on the books that I want to read in 2020. Every year I make a list of my priority reads for the year, every year the year ends with me not having read most of the books on it. This year though I am determined to read all of these – don’t rain on my parade. Each cover links to its goodreads page.
Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way.
– Top 10 Beautiful Blue Books –
At first, I wasn’t feeling this week’s topic of ‘books with my favorite color on the cover’ but after doing some digging through my Goodreads shelves I actually had a whale of a time and had so many books to share I’ve had to separate the post out into 2 parts. For part 1, I’ve focused on beautiful blue book covers. Blue is not my favourite colour but I find many blue covers gorgeous and just had to feature them today! Part 2 will then be RAINBOW RECOMMENDATIONS because who doesn’t love rainbows and books?!
The I Love Spring Book Tag was originally created by Helene Jeppesen & Amanda Elise Carina, and I was tagged in it by Melanie ❤ I am so happy that Spring is finally here and I can’t wait for the weather to start getting warmer. I am so done with these random snow showers and freezing weather!
1.) How is Spring where you live?
Unlike Melanie, we do not have super hot weather here even in the Summer. Most of Spring will be grey and drizzly with some days of glorious warm sunshine. The type that is just warm enough to wear a light jumper but not too warm that it’s sweltering.
2) Most anticipated book release this Spring?
I’m with Melanie on this one! It’s definitely Circe by Madeline Miller. I read The Song of Achilles when I was 19/20 years old and fell in love with Miller’s writing. I’ve been biting my nails over the release of Circe as I disappointingly wasn’t approved for an e-ARC of this, so I’m eagerly awaiting my birthday as it’s on my birthday list!
3) Show us a book cover that makes you think of Spring.
I actually don’t have an answer for this one! I have so many ideas for book covers for all of the other seasons but not a single one that makes me think of Spring.
4) What are you going to read this Spring?
I actually did a post about this for a recent Top 10 Tuesday prompt where I compiled a list of my Spring TBR! As you can see, there are quite a lot of books on the list as I never got round to reading my Christmas books AND my birthday is on the 15th April (which, of course, I’ve asked for more books for).
5) Find a cover with the sun on it!
This is the copy of I’ll Give you the Sun that I own and which shamefully still hasn’t been read even though I got it for my birthday last year *hides*
6) What are your favorite Spring reads?
I don’t really have any books that I re-read in Spring or associate with Spring. If I were to pick two though I would pick Starfish, as I’ve just finished reading it and it was a perfect Springtime read, and Pride & Prejudice because of all of the English countryside :’)
7) Find a book with many different colors on it.
How could I not choose the beautiful rainbow book cover of Warcross for this? It has ALL of the colours on it AND I’m hyped because Marie Lu announced the title of the sequel the other day so I’m thinking about Warcross a lot at the moment.
8) Whom do you tag?
I’m not going to tag anyone in this one because I’m not sure who enjoys doing them but if you want to get in the Springtime mood then please do it and link me to your list ❤
