This Top Ten Tuesday prompt is to find books whose covers are Purple, Green and Yellow (aka, the colors of Mardi Gras!). If you aren’t from an area that celebrates Mardi Gras, then you should know that today is the day! It’s always been on my bucket list to attend a Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and maybe…just maybe…if we can get out of this panorama I can achieve that wish!
Purple is my favorite color, so it was really fun pulling some purple covers! (There are so many absolutely GORGEOUS purple covers, so it was really hard to choose!) For this one, I decided to go with Fix Her Up by Tessa Baily as well as The Disasters by MK England. Both of these books I thought were absolutely fantastic reads, and I can’t recommend them enough! For the third book I picked, I went with You Should See Me In A Crown by Leah Johnson. This one is towards the top of my TBR pile, and I’ve heard nothing but good reviews from people who have read it, so I knew I had to include it too!
Some of these ones are kind of blueish, but I’m still counting them! For my green covers, I again went with two of my favorite books, and one that I haven’t read yet! The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell are two books that I’ve read enough times that I can quote them. I loved both of these books so much! For the third book, I went with An Emotion of Great Delight by Tahereh Mafi. This book is one of my 2021 Most Anticipated Reads, and I can’t wait to read it!
Yellow was definitely a tough one, because I don’t think that I’ve seen very many yellow book covers! The first two books: King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo, and Circe by Madeline Miller, are sitting on my bookshelf just WAITING for me to read them…and one day…one day I will. The third book, The Year Shakespeare Ruined My Life by Dani Jansen was one of my favorite books that I read in 2020! It was such a good book, and I highly recommend it! If you’re curious about it, my review for it will be up later this week!
I know that *technically* the prompt says I should be posting ten books, and I know that I only posted nine…however, the perfectionist in me just can’t stand to add in another book and wreck my perfect square number of three threes. It can’t be done. So! If you have a favorite purple, green, or yellow cover that I didn’t include here, then fill in my tenth spot, and drop it in the comments! I’d love to see which covers you think are the prettiest!

As I was putting my post together I was thinking about those who are color blind and how they would handle it. I also think perception of color can be subjective so I lobe that you went with some blueish colors for the green prompt.
You picked a lot of good books but The Kiss Quotient is one of my favorites.

That’s a good point! I didn’t even think about colorblindness.
This is such a good list! You’ve got a great mix of books that I’ve read (and loved) and books that are on my TBR. I can’t wait to dive into them and check them out soon.
Here’s my TTT for this week: http://leahs-books.com/2021/02/16/ttt-mardi-gras-colored-book-covers/
Fangirl and Circe. Great color choices. My TTT Colored Covers
Haha I struggled with the the colours, ten books division too! These are my books with green, gold and purple colours for Mardi Gras!
I picked 11 books for my twist on the theme so between us we even it out!
I know what you mean about 10 being hard to split up evenly…I ended up just picking one colour.
Purple is my favourite colour, too!

I want to read King of Scars just ’cause of the cover but I haven’t read Six Of Crows. Nice list!

I love the cover for King of Scars, it’s so pretty!

Fix Her Up was such a cute book.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
Love how you grouped these by the cover and may I add these are all stunning looking books 😀 Happy reading 😀 Here’s my TTT if you want to have a look https://readwithstefani.com/books-with-green-covers/
I know what you mean about 10 books and 3 colors. It annoyed me too. Also, I really enjoyed reading Circe!
King of Scars made my list this week too. I was actually surprised; I didn’t think I read that many yellow book covers either, but half of the last 10 covers in these three colors were yellow!
I have You Should See Me In A Crown and Circe sitting on my shelves to pick up!
I ended up with an extra green book in my ten!
