Great list! I need to try some Robin McKinley, and The Blue Sword seems like such a classic fantasy novel.
It’s wonderful, and a great place to start with Robin McKinley’s books!
Ok, the cover art to Coyote Blue is hilarious and I need that in my life! I don’t even care what the book is about.
Here is my TTT: https://ichlese.blog/2020/08/04/top-ten-tuesday-horror-books-with-colors-in-their-title/.
Christopher Moore’s books can be counted on to be hilarious — and I think we all need that right now! 🙂
Good to know!
The Blue Salt Road has such a pretty cover.
My TTT .
The inside is gorgeous too — it has beautiful black and white drawings througout.
I am struggling to think of one blue book that I’ve read! 🤔 I’m sure there must be one somewhere!!
Great list btw! And I just love that Joanne Harris cover 😀
Thanks! The Joanne Harris book is so pretty — and what you don’t get from the cover is that all the white parts are actually shiny silver in person.
Oooh even better!! 😄
Thank you! This was a fun one. 😉
I like your idea of focusing on one color! 🙂 I’m not familiar with most of these books but I remember I used to enjoy my mom reading me ‘Blueberries for Sal’ when I was little.
Blueberries for Sal is such a classic! I remember it from when I was a kid, and then read it with my own kids too.
I need to start in on the InCryptid books. Thanks for sharing!

Are you a Seanan McGuire fan? The InCryptid books are so much fun!
Love this Lisa! Wow there are a ton of “blues” and you even found books where the cover was blue as well:-)
Purely accidental, in terms of the cover colors!
Red White and Royal Blue is on so many lists this week! You wrote a great list!
My Top Ten Tuesday
Thanks! This week’s prompt was particularly fun. 🙂
Hi Lisa – I love a good book collage. I’ve read a couple of these, too!
Any time I get to play with book cover images, I’m happy. 🙂
I know – it’s fun, isn’t it? I think that’s why I like creating displays at my library job. 🙂
I’ve had the Incryptid series on my tbr for a while. Great list!
The Incryptid books are so much fun!
