Favorite Books with Blue Covers
This one is pretty random so going to have some fun with it! There are actually quite a few recent books with blue covers that I love but I’m going to try and reach back at least a little bit and talk about some that I may not have brought up before (at least not much).
- East by Edith Pattou
I read this one quite a while ago, but I absolutely loved it. It’s a retelling of East of the Sun West of the Moon. I’ve always been into retellings and this is a great one.
- The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
This is one of my favorite Gaiman books. It evokes such a depth of nostalgia and perhaps is enjoyed better with a few years behind you. There are some lovely lines in there about aging and how we’re all still those kids we once were on the inside.
- The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
I love this series so much! It’s so atmospheric and it’s got great characters and I love the way the story is revealed over the course of the books. Really can’t praise these books enough. Oh, and the audiobooks are amazing–highly recommend.
- Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin
This is such a strange book and I don’t think it’s for every reader, but man, I really loved it. It’s really a love letter to New York City, but it’s also part love story, part time travel, part other weird stuff that just doesn’t make sense but you go with it and figure it all out later. This is one of the books that made me realize I kind of enjoy reading weird stories. I did a full review of it a while ago.
- The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
This is another book that I absolutely loved. It’s also another book involving time travel! I feel like the entire concept of this one was fascinating, but there’s not much that happens plot-wise until very late in the book. And that worked fine for me. By then it all suddenly comes to a head and the ending of this one was so heart wrenching for me. I found myself torn at the end. I really need to read more of Claire North’s stuff.
That’s my list for this week! Have you read any of these? What are a few of your favorites with blue covers? Leave me a note in the comments or feel free to make a post of your own on the topic. I’d love to hear from you!
