Watercolor Book Designs)
means it’s time for that popular bookworm meme – which you may have seen around
the blogosphere, Top Ten Tuesday. Here’s our May eighth topic…
8: Books With My Favorite Color

But it seems like the ones I’m overconfident about (aka am sure will be easy)
are the ones that don’t go quite as smoothly.
a favorite color. I may have as a kid, but if so, the color slips my mind.
Instead, nowadays my color preferences are influenced by trends and popular
color palettes. Whether this be in my choice of a nail color (currently
sporting a beautiful shade called “Mint Candy Apple”) or the shades in
my blog design (currently influenced by Stampin’ Up!), I’m all about shifting
color loyalties depending on what color “pops” as the “it” shade.
the “why” of how today’s list is put together. Today, I decided to spin the
topic away from one color (in design or title) and feature one of my favorite
design elements: watercolor! Now if only I could actually watercolor.

reasons I should read these.)
Armentrout | This is one I’ve overtalked about – i.e. that I should read
it. It’s time I stop talking and crack open its waiting pages. Amazon |
read… but am super interested in. It sits on my shelf, looking so pretty, plus
the synopsis (WWII, time travel) sounds incredible – and all the more intriguing
in light of my recent obsession: Timeless. Amazon | Goodreads
Lorin Grace | These two books were recent(ish) Amazon purchases – pre Christmas

list). Guys, I adored this novel every bit as much as I love its pretty cover
design. Amazon | Goodreads
8: Princess in the Opal Mask by Jenny Lundquist | The
second book on this list I have read. It’s not the same kind of “watercolor”
look as some of these other books, but it still has a place on this list, and
if memory serves, it’s an entertaining read, too. Amazon | Goodreads
be short, but this cover is big and bold – in all the best ways. It’s a
gorgeous heart-eye emoji kind of aesthetic. Amazon | Goodreads
10: Love, Life and the List by Kasie West | Yes
Kasie West novels show up a lot on my Top Ten Tuesday lists. But to be
honest? I don’t see this changing ANYTIME soon. They’re just so darn cute. Love,
Life and the List is equally adorable (and is the third book on this feature
I have read.) Amazon | Goodreads

ps; I finally finished replying to last week’s Top Ten Tuesday comments… apologies for the delay. BUT I do read them all, and am grateful you stop by to talk all the bookish things with me – thank you. Hopefully this go-round will not suffer the fate of last week.
