Summer Blog Challenge – Day 16

Day 16 – Celebrate Paperbacks

Another day to celebrate books but today let’s celebrate paperback books! I love and much prefer a paperback book to any other although it’s so much harder to read without damaging them.

The books I’ve chosen are my favourite because of their colouring mostly and how lovely they all work together as part of a series.

(This post almost didn’t happen today because our little girl got her first set of vaccinations today and she’s poorly and just wants cuddles. But I’ve managed to grab 30 minutes to myself because I’m determined not to fail this challenge!)

So let’s celebrate paperbacks!

Of course Spotless by Camilla Monk would feature because they are my favourite books to read but also my favourite series that I own! My only problem is that they are mass produced paperbacks and so are just bigger than all of my UK editions (the problem with US book publishers). But nonetheless, they are colourful and fun and show the ridiculousness of Island’s hairstyle.

I stumbled apon these books by mistake, well I found the first one in Waterstones just after it was released and then had the agonising torture of having to wait (im)patiently for the rest of the trilogy to be released. The Kingmaker Chronicles by Amanda Bouchet where all the take on Greek mythology I didn’t know I was looking for. I loved the series.

The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini are very simple looking paperbacks from the spine but turn into really beautiful dragons filling their cover.

This edition of the Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardugo is my favourite by far. They are so bright and so bold and have a cover page that holds relevance to the story of each book.

The colour of these books is what drew me to them, especially the cobalt blue of book one. Rebel of the Sands trilogy by Alwyn Hamilton is a series currently on my TBR pile but having looked at them today I’ve decided they will definitely be moving up the list. They need love and appreciation and they aren’t getting that on my bookshelves right now.

There are so many lovely books, both paperback and hardback, that it’s so hard to choose. But I love all books (except movie covers). I’m so bad for judging hooks by their covers but the pretty ones are so much nicer on my shelves.

Until tomorrow.
