Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favourite covers with that characteristic.
This week's characteristic is Green Covers, so in this list there are some of my favourite covers with this colour.
5. The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness
The third instalment of the All Souls trilogy has this amazing cover. Even if I wasn't aware of the previous two books, I would still want to pick it up and read it.
4. Arabella by Georgette Heyer
This cover reminds me of a painting and I love this thing about it. It also suits this novel perfectly. All Jane Austen fans out there don't hesitate to read it, this is Regency Romance at its best!
3. Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi
This cover is gorgeous! I love everything about it, the snake, the roses, this particular shade of green. Plus, it's another take on Snow White and I have a thing for folklore and retellings.
2. A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro
This is a touching novel and it has a beautiful cover too. The green of the background is combined with great balance with the yellow and red of the kimono.
1. The Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer
My top pick couldn't be other than the third book in Artemis Fowl series! These books are hilarious, have great action and I love most of the characters in them. I would reread them anytime!
