Cover Characteristic: Green Covers

Sunday book meme Cover Characteristic

This meme is hosted by Sugar & Snark.

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.

My Picks


5. The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness


Green Cover of 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


Green Cover of 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


Green Cover of 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


Green Cover of 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 


Green Cover of The Time Paradox, the third book in Artemis Fowl series 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!



Which are your favourite green covers? Have you read any of the books in the list above? What did you think?

    1. It's a great romance novel. And I say that it's for Jane Austen fans, because it's a clean romance and it reminds of these novels a lot :)

  5. Boy, Snow, Bird sounds really interesting. Also, the fact that it's set in the 1950s makes me really want to read it!

  12. Gorgeous covers! The Book of Life doesn't happen to be the book that the movie of the same name was based off of, is it? That was a very cute and enjoyable movie - though I think I remember a different title for the original story.

    I've been meaning to get to Artemis Fowl for eons. Someday..

    1. No, it's not the same. The film also was great :)

      Artemis Fowl will definitely be an enjoyable read. It's among my favourite series.

  13. I recently finished Under Heaven, and I really liked the Hardback cover for it.
    It has a Sardian Horse and some Chinese, highlighted in varying hues of green.

    1. I am a great fan of Guy Gavriel Kay (I mean Tigana is one of the best fantasy books I've ever read). I remember the cover you're talking about and it's really nice. Thank you for the suggestion :)

  14. Hey Aeriko001,

    To me, the covers of Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi & The Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer sounds really beautiful and inspiring. If you had to judge a book by it's cover then I would surely choose them both from all of the above. By the way, it's the first time I am seeing this kind of meme hosting. It's new to me. Hahaa. I actually like it, It's a very interesting meme ^^ Sadly, I am not an avid reader but I do read books that aren't really classic types haha :) But thanks for sharing this with us :D It's a very nice post ^.^

    1. It's a fact that cover influence are judgement, either we like it or not. I've found myself buying a book that I didn't even know because it had a great one :)

    Thanks for joining in last week :)
