Today’s Topic: Rainbow Book Tag

Found At: It’s All About The Books

Here are the rules:

  1. Choose book covers from each color of the rainbow. Books that are your favorite from that color! If you can’t find a book of a certain color then choose a cover that has that color on it somewhere.
  2. The choices have to be books you own and/or has to be the exact edition you read.

RED

Scarlette by Davonna Juroe

A fantastic debut by Juroe! Scarlette is by far one of my favorite fairy tale retellings I’ve read YA. It’s a solid and innovative retelling of the famous Little Red Riding Hood story. I highly recommend it if you like fairytale-esque stories.

ORANGE

Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2) by Diana Gabaldon

From the Outlander novels I have read so far (the first four books) I enjoyed this one the most. The main characters start to develop further and the plot becomes more interesting. While in the first novel I spent most of my time focusing on learning the characters and historical timeline, I felt I could relax with this one more.

YELLOW

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

This book had me laughing out loud! Brosh shares snippets of her childhood and events in her life through colorful simplistic style drawings with her audience. While it’s mostly a lighthearted book I liked that also talks about mental illness as she shares her experiences with depression.

GREEN

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Heartbreaking, but a book everyone should read. It tells the story up two boys growing up in Kabul while set within a backdrop of  events from the fall of Afghanistan’s monarchy to the rise of the Taliban regime. I liked the way the story was written, how the plot flowed, and that it exposed me to a history I was unfamiliar with.

BLUE

Peanut by Ayun Halliday & Paul Hope

One of my favorite standalone graphic novels! It follows the story of a girl who tries to fit in a new school so desperately that she fakes a peanut allergy. While her lie holds up for a while things eventually become unraveled. The artwork is fun and the story has a strong moral message for its readers.

INDIGO/TURQUOISE

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl holds a special place in my heart because I could relate to the story so much because I’m a fangirl myself. Though the main character’s fangirl personality is a bit on the obsession side, I think a lot of readers can resonate with her story.

PURPLE

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

This novel has a mixture of fantastic elements: mystical worlds, a heroine, romance, and more! I loved the how the story is built Indian Folklore. I also admired the main protagonist, Maya. Even after she goes through all of the obstacles that are thrown her way, she becomes an even stronger person.

PINK

Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Though Rebel Belle is a predictable YA story, doesn’t mean that it’s not an entertaining read. Hawkins perfectly mixes elements of debutante balls with skilled assassins to keep her readers interested.

BROWN

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I’ve talked about/praised Americanah a number of times, but I’m doing it again here. It prompt readers with the question of is the “what does it mean to be an American?” and I feel it’s a very relevant to what’s happening now in today’s’ society.

WHITE

When We Collided by Emery Lord

When We Collided paints a realistic description of grief, depression, family, and mental illness. Among all of that is coming of age theme where the two main protagonist come to a crossroads in life prompting a journey of self-discovery. It’s a beautifully written novel.

BLACK

Confessions by Kanae Minato

This book is probably the most extreme psychological thriller that I ever read. It’s twists and turns will keep you enthralled. Each chapter is the point of view of someone who has a direct link to the crime and it’s definitely quite the puzzle to untangle the mystery.
