Top Five Tuesday – red/orange/yellow covers

JUNE 5 – Top 5 covers with red, orange, yellow

Happy Tuesday!! Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Shanah at BionicBookWorm, to explore a wide range of topics in the bookish world!
And as you can see the topic this week is 5 favourite covers with the colours red, orange and yellow!  So here are my picks!! With a little help from Elmo of course!

Orlando by Virginia Woolf

Any excuse for a Penguin Clothbound Classic edition!

Thornyhold by Mary Stewart

Love the vintage feel of this cover

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly

One of my favourite reads and I just love the simplicity of the red, black and white.

Larry and the Dog People by J.Paul Henderson

Another recent read that I loved for it’s funny but dark tones!

The Land of Decoration by Grace McCleen

This cover was the reason I picked this book up as I knew nothing else about it, but found the story fascinating!


I Spy Book Challenge #BookTag

I love a good challenge and, when I saw this one on Kristin Kraves Books, started originally over on Youtube I think, I knew I wanted to give it a go!!

Find a book on your bookshelves that contains (either on the cover or in the title) an example for each category. You must have a separate book for all 20, get as creative as you want and do it within five minutes!!  (or longer if you have way too many books on way too many overcrowded shelves!)
