Top 10 Tuesday: Books with fall colors or vibe on the cover
Every Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl hosts a "party" where book bloggers share their interpretation of the theme of the week. This week it's about saluting fall - in cover art. I took the theme relatively literally and browsed the books on my shelves and online to come up with these possibilities:
5 From My TBR or Bookshelf
Fall colors and a spooky October vibe for this book - a classic scary book published in 1959, The Haunting of Hill House is one I'll be adding to my TBR.
This cover looks like the transition from summer to fall - and has a very intriguing design, one that looks like it's leading right into a mysterious, magical locale. The Secret of Magic is on my shelves and now that I've rediscovered it there, it's time to read it!
Also on my shelves, The Ten Year Nap has a cover that's a lovely smoosh of fall colors in yellows and oranges though I don't think the title or story have anything to do with fall......
More lovely fall colors on The Lost Man, though in this particular case it's meant to imply heat and desert since the story takes place in central Australia - but, the colors are the key, right? Read this a couple years ago and LOVED it!
The Overstory - a cover rich in fall tones AND, a story about nature and humans efforts to save what's left. Reviewed here.
5 Books From Online Searches (with pretty covers)
The epitome of a fall themed cover!
The Poisonwood Bible is also a book I read years ago and I'm pretty sure this isn't the cover it had then, but it fits this theme perfectly!
The cover for Eden definitely feels very autumn-ish with the warm oranges and golds and browns. The plot sounds like a psychological thriller of a story - also good for fall reading.
Wowsers, here's a perfect fall colored cover though, of course, the story is set on Mars. But, The Martian makes my cover list (this is a rare book where I liked the movie much better than the book!).
I'll wind up with this great image of fall leaves on a fall tree with a golden fall backdrop - The Cresswell Plot is a YA dysfunctional family type story and the cover is so fall lovely!
Hopefully all these fall colors have set the scene for a fabulous, vibrant fall reading season. I'm ready for the cooler weather, pretty colors, lush smells, and curling up with a blanket and a good book! How about you?
