This weeks #sixforsunday is all about Autumn Coloured books, It’s just a short post from me today as I’m exhausted after a long day of decorating!
The Amber Spyglass – Philip Pullman
I adore these editions of His Dark Materials, I think that the foiling is just beautiful! Whilst The Subtle Knife has a red cover, its the deep orange of The Amber Spyglass which makes this list. I have to say I’m ridiculously excited about the TV show starting next month!
Muse of Nightmares – Laini Taylor
I was lucky to get the Waterstones edition which has the most gorgeous orange sprayed edges to compliment the cover. The almost smokey shades of orange give the cover a really autumnal feel. I absolutely loved this book and think I may love it even more than Strange the Dreamer!
Circe – Madeline Miller
This book is my biggest cover buy ever, more so for the hidden cover underneath the dust jacket! This book just radiates an autumn feel though, from the oranges and golds to the decorative leaf finish – the season has definitely arrived at Circe’s island!
The Priory of the Orange Tree – Samantha Shannon
By far the biggest book on my shelf, the stunning oranges and yellows of the cover make this book stand out even more, like embers on bonfire night.
Type-X – M.A. Phipps
I love this cover so much especially with the way the darker orange fades up to the lighter shade – its not got much of an autumnal vibe, what with all the destruction but it’s autumn coloured and that’s what matters for this prompt!
Illuminae – Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
A great spectrum of autumnal colours with this cover, I love how simple but effective it is. This is the only book on this list that I have yet to read – I have it at least, so now just to find the time to squeeze it in.
