Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Love – Mardi Gras Style
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Purple, Yellow, and/or Green Book Covers (in honor of Mardi Gras, which is today!). I don’t usually do much for Mardi Gras honestly. Back in college, we would have Mardi Gras themed parties and pre-COVID, my office would get a King Cake every year to mark the occasion. But that’s about it. My favorite colors are purple, green, and yellow though so I’m happy to share some of my favorite book covers that feature those colors in honor of Mardi Gras.

Thank you! 🙂
Oh, you found some really good ones! I don’t think I’ve actually ever celebrated Mardi Gras!
Thanks! Yeah, I’ve never really done much for it either. Going to New Orleans for it is one of those random travel bucket list items, but so far, it hasn’t happened.
Ooh, great cover picks. I love how bright all of these colours are 😍 I still have to read a lot of these books, too! Also, I just googled what a King Cake was and wow, so colourful, but also I now want some kinda cake 😂

LOL! I’ve been craving cake ever since I wrote the post. 🙂
I’ve never celebrated much either, but I’ve always wanted to experience Mardi Gras in New Orleans some day. I struggled to find purple covers and completely forgot about Gerkerella!

Right? I think it would be a great time to experience it there. I saw that this year people have turned their yards into Mardi Gras floats so people can drive by and see them. I thought that was so cool.
So pretty! My favorite color is purple and then green, so these are wonderful for me. lol I’ve done the King Cake thing before but that’s about it.

We were talking on our Zoom call at work today how much we missed being together and sharing the King Cake. We always had fun with that.
I really ought to read You Should See Me in a Crown sometime.

I actually still need to read that one too. I just love the cover so much I had to include it.
HoF again! I really should have gone further back on my TBR. My green books are really not green for the most part. I have read 6 of these, and I had to featured Crown for purple. Love that books so much.

I actually still need to read that one, but I’m in love with the vibrant cover. 🙂
How fun that these are already your favorite colors. 🙂 The cover for Wicked Like a Wildfire is so gorgeous!
Tanya @ Girl Plus Books recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler! | Mardi Gras Edition
Right? That’s one of my favorites.
I loved your post this week!

Thank you! 🙂
I don’t celebrate Mardi Gras, but these colors and covers do look super nice together!
Mardi Gras isn’t a thing in the UK, we have Pancake Day instead. Of these I’ve only read Heir of Fire, which I loved, though Sorcery of Thorns is on my TBR.

I really loved Sorcery of Thorns!
We have two in common Suzanne! I love this color combo.

Me too! 🙂
Those covers look so great all grouped together like that. Great choices! 🙂

How fun that your favorite colors are Mardi Gras colors! I hadn’t realized until today that it had official colors or that there are meanings behind the colors. You learn something new every day 🙂
Susan (Bloggin’ ’bout Books) recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: The Baby in My Mardi Gras King Cake
I just learned about the meanings of the colors this week too, lol!
Five of those are on my TBR list already. Based on the cover alone, I’ll be taking a look at Wicked Like a Wildfire to see if I want to add it, as well. Top Ten Tuesday is always dangerous to my goal of reducing my TBR list!
Lark @ The Bookwyrm’s Hoard recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday Book Stack: Purple and Green Fantasy Covers
Haha, mine too!
Such beautiful covers! I especially loved Geekerella!
Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday #84: Top 10 Creepy Purple, Yellow and Green Book Covers (or It’s Mardi Gras Time!)
Me too. That is such a fun series. 🙂
I absolutely love green and teal-ish covers. Hand on the Wall is awesome but I love so many of these.
Greg recently posted…Dystopia Playlist #4
The greens are my favorites too. Love all of the different shades. 🙂
Great list! I need to cross A Sorcery of Thorns off my TBR and I really want to try the Truly Devious series, too.

I really loved Sorcery of Thorns. That one lives up to all of the hype. 🙂
So very pretty! And some really storming reads
