There’s this little event that starts today called Mardi Gras. It’s never been something that’s been of interest me, but when it gets a bookish spin, I’m a little more invested. Specifically talking Mardi Gras book colors which is purples, yellows and greens!
With that said, it’s time to go and browse my bookshelves and find books with the colors of this popular celebration. That’s the rule I’ve set out (that I have to own them) so I don’t get too overwhelmed and in searching the interwebs for good fits. Even at that, I did still find a few more than anticipated, but hey it’s books, so there’s never too many, am I right?

1 & 2: The Betrothed and The Crown, Kiera Cass
I know Cass’ novels have a lot of hate, but they also have love, too, and for me, while not always as fleshed out as I’d hope (especially with her latest release), they are happy reading. The Betrothed on Bookshop.org | Goodreads ● The Crown on Bookshop.org | Goodreads
3: The Inheritance Games, Jennifer Lynn Barnes
4: Brightly Burning, Alexa Donne
5 & 6: Always Watching and Chasing Secrets, Lynette Eason
This is more of a gold color, but like The Betrothed, it feels fitting. Plus, who doesn’t love a good suspense novel now and again? Always Watching on Bookshop.org | Goodreads ● Chasing Secrets on Bookshop.org | Goodreads
7: Gunslinger Girl, Lindsay Ely
8: The Hand on the Wall, Maureen Johnson
Ok, my order history says I purchased this book, but if I’m being honest, I have no idea where my copy got to. It’s not next to book two, The Vanishing Stair, and I’m a little confused by where I may have stored it (where’s the weirdest place you’ve stashed a book?). Guess this just means a bookshelf reorganization is due. Bookshop.org | Goodreads
9: Remembrance, Michelle Madow
Adding this one not because of colors (although there is gold which I count as a “yellow”), but more because of the decorative masquerade costume! Bookshop.org | Goodreads
10: Lola and the Boy Next Door, Stephanie Perkins
11: Geek Girl: Model Misfit, Holly Smale
12 & 13: The Comeback Season and You Are Here, Jennifer E. Smith
There are so many of Jennifer’s books I haven’t read and these two re-releases are two of them. Love the simplicity of her “old style” covers; black and white with fun doodle elements. The Comeback Season on Bookshop.org | Goodreads ● You are Here on Bookshop.org | Goodreads
14: Northpointe Chalet, Debra White Smith
15: All this Time, Melissa Tagg
