As most of you probably, I AM MAD FOR PRETTY BOOKS – who isn’t, right? So, to celebrate that love, I started the Colour of The Month series last month where I will choose a new colour every month and pick out books from my to-buy/anticipated releases lists and share with you so that YOU CAN BURY YOUR FACE IN THEIR ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS COVERS!!
I know I AM SOOO HELPFUL! You should appreciate me more, you know! Just sayin’. xD ;P
Well, this month, I have decided to bless your eyes with some of THE MOST GORGEOUS Purple COVERS EVERR!!!!!! ❤ ❤ YOU ARE WELCOMMEEEE! 🙂
💜 The Bone Witch | Rin Chupeco : I first saw this one on my Pinterest and I FELL IN LOVE – HEAD OVER HEELS! But..apparently not enough to buy it RIGHT THEN! 😦 I was going through my Pinterest boards and when I saw this, I knew I HAD TO CHOOSE Purple for this month’s theme – I MEAN LOOK AT THAT! This had to be one of THE MOST MYSTERIOUS, MOST GORGEOUS COVERS EVER! And I have vowed to read it before 2020 ends! Because I will be needing some witchy powers to survive the rest of this goddamn years, that’s FOR SURE! 😉
💜 Toil & Trouble | Jessica Spotswood & Tess Sharpe : The artwork on the edges of this one is just TOO BEAUTIFUL, isn’t it?! *heart eyes forever* I MEAN HOW CAN ANYONE RESIST THIS??! ❤
”A young adult fiction anthology of 15 stories featuring contemporary, historical, and futuristic stories featuring witchy heroines who are diverse in race, class, sexuality, religion, geography, and era.”
💜 A Room Away From The Wolves | Nova Ren Suma : As if the title wasn’t intriguing enough!! The cover depicts a PERFECT BLEND OF FANTASTICAL AND REALITY and I AM 1000000% HERE FOR IT! ❤ ❤ Are you?
Well, you better be! 😉
💜 That Inevitable Victorian Thing | E.K. Johnston : So, the Goodreads blurb says,
”That Inevitable Victorian Thing is a novel of love, duty, and the small moments that can change people and the world.”
Okay! Okay! THAT sounds awesome tooo BUT…I am mostly here for that rather classy cover, okiee?!??! xD I MEAN…WOW! My heart leaps with joy whenever I see that cover – I am already imagining it a a lush purple cloth bound edition. It would look GORGEOUS, don’t you agree?!

But hey, I gotta ask – what is the significance of those threaded pearls in the cover?!
💜 Wicked Like Wildfire | Lana Popovic : I simply couldn’t resist the flowery beauty in this one – AHHH!!!! ❤ ❤ Also,
”All the women in Iris and Malina’s family have the unique magical ability or “gleam” to manipulate beauty.”
As soon as I read that, I knew I SIMPLY MUST BE A PART OF THIS INTRIGUING STORY! And it certainly helps that it got soo much love from my fellow bloggers. 🙂 ❤
I am going to have to interrupt you to direct your attention to these beautiful ”purple” quotes! I HOPE YOU WILL LOVE THEM. ❤

💜 Exit West | Mohsin Hamid : I was looking for pretty purple book covers on Google when I stumbled upon this one and fell in love immediately! The way blue and shades of lilac compliment each other on a rather dark an d mysterious background HAS ME DROOLING OVER THIS ONE! And what’s more? The GR blurb says,
”Exit West follows (Nadia and Saeed) as they emerge into an alien and uncertain future, struggling to hold on to each other, to their past, to the very sense of who they are. Profoundly intimate and powerfully inventive, it tells an unforgettable story of love, loyalty, and courage that is both completely of our time and for all time.”
YEP! I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE. YOU need this in your life! ❤
💜 The Book of Tomorrow | Cecelia Ahern : Why I chose this? Apart form the title, you mean? Well how in the hell was I supposed to resist that magical cover? COULD YOU? I DON’T THINK SO! I have only read a couple of short stories by Ahern but I ADORE HER WRITING and I AM SOOO LOOKING FORWARD TO READING IT! ❤
Hey, hey..if you have read it then PLEASE talk to me about it in the comments! I would love to know your thoughts on this one. 🙂
