Book Colors! Celebrate Mardi Gras in a Bookish Way!

February 15, 2021 22 Comments

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!

NETFLIX REVIEW | ‘To All the Boys: Always & Forever’: Netflix Closes Happy YA Romance Series

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

Pretty sure I’ve used this book for a few recent lists, but when it fits, it fits. Bookshop.org | Goodreads

4: Brightly Burning, Alexa Donne

This one is all about the purple hues, and it sounds interesting too with its premise as a Jane Eyre re-telling (that also dabbles in sci-fi). Bookshop.org | Goodreads

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

Read this one years ago, and while I didn’t love it, it looks fitting on today’s list. Bookshop.org | Goodreads

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

Reminds me I STILL haven’t read ‘Isla.’ Where are my priorities even at? Bookshop.org | Goodreads

11: Geek Girl: Model Misfit, Holly Smale

It’s mostly purple. I’m going with it. Bookshop.org | Goodreads

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

As a re-design, this contemporary Austen re-telling is an ideal fit on today’s list. Bookshop.org | Goodreads

15: All this Time, Melissa Tagg

All the purples! Bookshop.org | Goodreads

    I was trying to search my Goodreads shelves for these colors, and it was hard!

    • Lee February 16, 2021 at 11:39 am

      It really was ’cause I was trying to pick titles I actually wanted to read lol

      • Rissi JC March 1, 2021 at 1:20 pm

        I hear that, Lee! I like to feature books from my shelf (most the time) vs. one’s I’d like to own/read. :)

    • Rissi JC March 1, 2021 at 1:20 pm

      I just browsed my shelves. :)

  • Lee February 16, 2021 at 11:41 am

    I keep seeing The Inheritance Games. I’m going to have to check it out

    I don’t really celebrate Mardi Gras either, but any excuse to look pretty book covers is a good one :) These all look so gorgeous together!

  • Ashley S. February 16, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    So many pretty covers! Those Lynette Eason books were so good. I still need to read that Melissa Tagg one. I don’t know why I haven’t yet. I love her books. Oh well, hopefully one of these days I can get to it. :)

    • Rissi JC March 1, 2021 at 1:40 pm

      I have two (I think?) books by Melissa and Lynette always writes a fun mystery!! :) Hope you enjoy Melissa’s!!

  • Jess @ Jessticulates February 17, 2021 at 4:06 am

    Great list! I really want to give the Truly Devious series a try, I love YA thrillers.
