Book Rainbow: Blue

Hello everyone! Today I've got another book rainbow post: blue. Blue is actually one of my least favourite colours for books. I don't know why its just never been one of my favourite colours. That being said, a lot of my favourite books have blue covers. Proves you can't judge a book by its cover.


Looking For Alaska by John Green - Ok, do I really need to go into this one that much? I feel like 3 years ago, no one knew John Green's books and now they're every where. Don't get me wrong, I still love them. But I think I also really liked recommending them to people who has never heard of them because they'd then fall in love with them and it was awesome. Whereas now everyone already knows about them. This one is about a boy who starts at a boarding school and is my 3rd favourite John Green novel.

Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider - This one was probably one of my favourite books of the year. This is about a boy who used to be really popular until he was in a bad car accident that left him unable to play the sports that had made him so popular. Over the summer he realises that his friends weren't as great as he thought they were and he has to work out who he really is and who he really wants to be. This is called 'The Beginning Of Everything' in its US print, I don't know why there was a name change.

Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple - If you're looking for a fun quirky read, then you'll love this. Its made up of a collection of emails, letters etc found by the daughter of a woman who runs away/goes missing. She's trying to piece together the story and work out where her mother has gone. It sounds a bit morbid when I put it like that but trust me, this is a very funny story. Bernadette is such a funny character. Really recommend this! 


Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides - I actually really don't like this one. Its an interesting concept, its about hermaphroditism. However, it tells the story of a family over 3 generations and is just way too long. By the end of the novel I'd kind of forgotten what had happened at the start. I would still recommend this but wouldn't say you should read it unless you have a lot of time to give it. 

The Ask And The Answer by Patrick Ness - This is the second book in the Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness. This is also my favourite book in the series, which also happens to be one of my favourite series! The writing is beautiful, the covers are beautiful, Patrick Ness is beautiful. Yay, yay, yay! This is a series that gets really deep and goes into the moraility of war and whether people are born evil or become evil. Would seriously recommend this series to everyone. Its targeted as a YA book but I think adults would enjoy it as well.

The Life Of Riley by Joanna Nadin - This is just another book in the Rachel Riley series which is the diary of a teenage girl. These books are really aimed at younger teenagers but I can't bring myself to through them away. I really need to reread them. I'm getting the newest one for Christmas so maybe I'll reread them then.

What are your favourite books with blue covers?
