Top Ten Tuesday: Books with My Favorite Color on the Cover

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! I'm putting off my June 2024 Reading Recap until next week to do my monthly TTT post, because I like this week's topic.

Top Ten Tuesday is a tag hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, she picks a bookish prompt and then anyone who wants to posts ten books that fit the prompt. This week's prompt is "Books with My Favorite Color on the Cover".

For a long time, my favorite color was blue because that was my dad's and sister's favorite color. And honestly, blue covers are a lot easier to find. But my favorite color is now yellow because it makes me happy. So, in no particular order, here we go!

Welcome to the Pine Away Motel and Cabins, by Katarina Bivald

"A charming tale of the folks who reunite at a ramshackle roadside motel in Pine Creek, Oregon, after the unfortunate death of Henny, a local who worked at the cabins all her life, and who isn't going to let a tiny thing like death stop her from living fully — not when her friends and her little town need her the most." (Goodreads)

Dear Henry, Love Edith, by Becca Kinzer

A case of mistaken identity and some fake dating make for a very wholesome romantic comedy in this delightful book!

Gilded, by Marissa Meyer

"Long ago cursed by the god of lies, a poor miller's daughter has developed a talent for spinning stories that are fantastical and spellbinding and entirely untrue. Or so everyone believes. Marissa Meyer, #1 New York Times-bestselling author, returns to the fairytale world with this haunting retelling of Rumpelstiltskin." (Goodreads)

The Starless Sea, by Erin Morgenstern

"From the New York Times bestselling author of The Night Circus, a timeless love story set in a secret underground world—a place of pirates, painters, lovers, liars, and ships that sail upon a starless sea." (Goodreads)

The Pink Motel, by Carol Ryrie Brink

"The moment Kirby and Bitsy arrive with their parents at their newly inherited motel in Florida, they know it's an unusual place. First of all, it's pink. Not just regular pink, but pink, pink, PINK! Then there's the roster of regular guests: an artist from Greenwich Village, a magician from The World, and a carpenter form Nobody Knows. It's the perfect combination for adventure - from mysterious messages to alligator hunting, dognapping, and Great-Granduncle Hiram's rumored secret treasure. The action at the Pink Motel never stops!" (Goodreads)

Beauty, by Robin McKinley

"Beauty has never liked her nickname. She is thin and awkward; it is her two sisters who are the beautiful ones. But what she lacks in looks, she can perhaps make up for in courage. When her father comes home with the tale of an enchanted castle in the forest and the terrible promise he had to make to the Beast who lives there, Beauty knows she must go to the castle, a prisoner of her own free will. Her father protests that he will not let her go, but she answers, 'Cannot a Beast be tamed?'" (Goodreads)

On the Fence, by Kasie West

"For sixteen-year-old Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, being raised by a single dad and three older brothers has its perks. She can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows—including her longtime neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn't know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at a chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world of makeup, lacy skirts, and BeDazzlers. Even stranger, she's spending time with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game. To cope with the stress of faking her way through this new reality, Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with Braden by the fence that separates them. But their Fence Chats can't solve Charlie's biggest problem: she's falling for Braden. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high." (Goodreads)

My Berlin Kitchen, by Luisa Weiss

"Luisa Weiss was working in New York when she decided to cook her way through her massive recipe collection. The Wednesday Chef, the cooking blog she launched to document her adventures, charmed readers around the world. But Luisa never stopped longing to return to her childhood home in Berlin. A food memoir with recipes, My Berlin Kitchen deliciously chronicles how she finally took the plunge and went across the ocean in search of happiness—only to find love waiting where she least expected it." (Goodreads)

Uprooted, by Naomi Novik

"Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life. Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood. The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows—everyone knows—that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn’t, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her. But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose." (Goodreads)

Maid, by Stephanie Land

A tale of economic hardship and an exploration of what truly matters in life.

And that's it! What's your favorite color? Leave a comment and link your Top Ten Tuesday below so I can see your picks!


  1. You’re the second person to mention yellow so far this week from what I’ve seen. It’s a cheerful colour for sure. :)

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. Yay for yellow! Thanks for sharing your Top Ten Tuesday!

  2. I've read Gilded and The Starless Sea.

    My TTT:

    1. I love both of those books! I know people tend to prefer The Night Circus, but I liked The Starless Sea better.

  3. I love seeing Dear Henry, Love Edith on your list! My TTT

    1. Yes, it was such a fun read! I still need to read Becca Kinzer's next book.

  4. I love yellow too. It's so bright and cheery! All the walls in my house are a pale yellow because the color just makes me happy :) Oh, and I love the combination of blue and yellow too.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

    1. I feel like all houses should have some yellow in them. Yellow kitchens are my favorite! My mom's and aunt's kitchens both have a blue and yellow color scheme, which I think is so pretty.

  5. I love that you chose yellow for covers! It's probably my second or third favorite color (I change my mind frequently whether I like yellow or purple better XD)

    1. I can't believe it was so hard to find books with yellow covers, though! Guess I need to read more books :D
