What is #SixforSunday?
#SixforSunday was a little blog feature Steph @ A little but a lot started in June 2017 for herself. It’s a weekly blog post where you get to share 6 books which fill a certain prompt. Originally, #SixforSunday was a post Steph did that she never thought she would stick with! It was her place to share 6 bookish things under a given prompt. (If you want to see her first post, you can check it out here!) She started it thinking it would fizzle out and that she would run out of things to use as prompts: She never imagined that it would transform itself into something OTHER PEOPLE JOIN IN WITH every week. For further details of the rules and links to the prompts for this meme, please visit Steph’s blog here. (Don’t forget to follow and tag Steph alittlebutalot on Twitter and Instagram – @eenalol – if you join in! Also, I made this little banner for this prompt, using graphics from her blog. I hope Steph likes it!)
This week – March 28, 2021 – the topic is: Blue and Green Books.
So, without any further ado…
I actually found lots and lots of books I’ve reviewed with book covers that are both blue and green. In fact, I could have done six for blue and six for green. But instead, I decided to go with the ones where both of the two colors were as distinctive and separate as possible.
6 – “A House in the Country” by Ruth Adam. This one is mostly green but there’s a big splodge of blue right in the middle!
5 – “The Lido” by Libby Page. In this one the green is in the lower third of the book.
4 – “The Last Will of Moira Leahy” by Therese Walsh. Here the green is more dominant, but there’s that splash of blue in the top half as well.
3 – “This Must be the Place” by Maggie O’Farrell. The cover of this one wasn’t the one I had on the book I bought, but I like that circle in the middle here with the green landscape in the middle of the blue and white sky.
2 – “I Stopped Time” by Jane Davis. Jane’s books always have THE most amazing artwork on their covers, and this one is no exception!
1 – “Clock Dance” by Anne Tyler. You can’t get more distinctive than this one with the clear blue sky in the background and the big green cactus in the middle.
