Top Ten Tuesday #14 – Books with Red and White Covers!

July 3, 2018Victoria @ The Contented Reader

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post! Today’s topic is books with red, white and blue covers in honour of the Fourth of July! I’m wishing all my American bookworms a Happy Fourth of July! However, I’m going to switch it up and talk about books with red and white covers in honour of Canada Day.

Canada Day was July 1st and we had a nice long weekend with perfectly HOT weather! I was at my cottage (with no air conditioning) and spent most of my weekend in the lake trying to cool off! Oh, and reading of course! I hope all my lovely Canadian bookworms had a wonderful weekend.

So this week I decided to mention five books with red covers/features and five books with white covers/features – which are the two colours on the Canadian flag!

– Red Books –

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

Simon vs. the HomoSapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Red Queen: Collector’s Edition by Victoria Aveyard

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

– White Books –

Love and Luck by Jenna Evans Welch

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Warcross by Marie Lu

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir 


That’s it for this week’s top ten! Tell me down below if any of these books are a favourite of yours!

Happy Tuesday!

    Great list with some books that I’ve been really wanting to read ☺️ I only descovered Warcross today from another list but it looks pretty good. What was it like to read?

      It was a great read! Different from anything else I’ve read before, but I enjoyed it. I plan on re-reading it and reviewing it on my blog. I also just received an ARC of wildcard so I’m curious to see how things continue!

    Great choices dear!! Warcross is my favorite, and my least favorite is Everything Everything, it’s not a favorite at all!!

    1. Victoria @ Rocky Reads

      July 3, 2018 at 3:21 pm

      Thank you! Warcross was great – I need to re-read it and review. Everything, Everything was enjoyable to me but the ending was so disappointing!

      1. Carolina @fictionologyst

        July 3, 2018 at 3:32 pm

        I found it share too many similarities with the movie Bubble Boy, that’s why I think the book is unoriginal? Idk maybe this is only my unpopular opinion!

      2. Victoria @ Rocky Reads

        July 3, 2018 at 3:33 pm

        Ah, that could definitely be true. I’ve never seen the movie so I’m not sure. But I’m sure others would agree!

    Great choices! The cover for the Red Queen Collector’s Edition is beautiful. It’d tempt me to try the series.

    1. Victoria @ Rocky Reads

      July 3, 2018 at 5:13 pm

      It is really pretty! Although the Red Queen series has its faults, I’ve enjoyed it overall. Definitely not the best series ever, but a decent fantasy series for sure.

    Oooh, I just read Ace of Shades and really enjoyed it!
    And ahhh An Ember in the Ashes. I really need to reread that book and continue on with the series. I use to be iffy about these new covers, but they’re really growing on me. 🙂

    1. Victoria @ Rocky Reads

      July 4, 2018 at 9:55 pm

      It was definitely enjoyable – I just finished it over the weekend! And ugh, omg, I’m late to the game because I’ve only read Ember, but it is fantastic!!!

  • alicerosesimmons

    July 4, 2018 at 3:10 pm

    Great list – all of these covers are so pretty, and I am so tempted to pick up all of the ones I haven’t read yet! Also happy late Canada day 🙂

    1. Victoria @ Rocky Reads

      July 4, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    Happy Belated Canada Day!
    Ooooooo, I didn’t know Jenna Evans Welch has another book! I really liked Love and Gelato, I’m going to have to find Love & Luck (my poor TBR). I loved An Ember in the Ashes, I really need to carry on with the series.

    1. Victoria @ Rocky Reads

      July 5, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      Thank you! Yes, I enjoyed it! Love and Gelato was better for me, in my opinion. But it was still an enjoyable read. And yes, Ember was SO GOOD!

  • Loretta @ The Laughing Listener

    July 5, 2018 at 2:27 pm

    This is such an amazing list!! The only ones I’ve read on here are ACOTAR and Red Queen, but pretty much this entire thing is on my tbr. Happy Canada day!!
