13 In Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: Red, White, and Blue

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (as always, hosted by the inimitable Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl) is all about America. (or your country of origin, your port of call as it were). Simply enough, this week we’re just showing off our favorite red, white, and blue covers!

Of course, symmetry doesn’t work with ten books and three colors, so this is really more of a top nine Tuesday – sorry, perfectionists. I can’t help it, doing it as a cluster of ten made me feel twitchy.

I went through my “read” shelf on Goodreads and picked out the three books of each color that are my favorites in recent memories, which was a lot of fun and kept me from reaching for my same standby books. I can safely say that these nine sort of make up “me,” as far as what I consider my book taste. This ranges from young adult to plain ol’ adult, from fantasy to creative nonfiction, domestic thrillers to fairy romances.

Happy early birthday, America.

    I like how you organized this post. Nine books look prettier than 10. Also, I adore Scythe and Thunderhead.

    I love the way the books you chose reflect you as a reader! I confess I just chose a bunch of books based on their covers 😉
