Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is:
July 3: Books with Red, White, & Blue Covers
For this week’s theme, I decided to give myself the extra challenge of doing this with books that are either on my TBR or I’ve already read. Since the UK union flag colours are also red, white, and blue, I went for a general gradient of all three colours across the ten books.
I’ve read six out of these ten, and four are on my TBR. I think the covers for American Street, Ink and Bone, and The Girl From Everywhere are the best here, as they incorporate a mix of all three colours.
Which cover is your favourite on here? Have you read any of these books?

So many pretty covers!!! I will always love the cover for the Raven King. It just looks so magical and majestic. American Street also has a pretty epic cover to it. I love it!
Hehe thanks Lois! I’m actually not too fussed on the other Raven Cycle covers, but I really like the Raven King cover. Yeah, I love American Street, I hope I can find a copy with this exact cover when I come to read it. 🙂
I really enjoyed Lorali when I read it, though I must admit I prefer the pink cover I read!
I quite like both the pink and blue covers, but sadly I didn’t enjoy the actual book that much! 😛
It’s amazing how many moods you can get out of variations of red, white, and blue! Love your cover picks!
I thought so too! Some of these covers seem really light and airy, while others seem bold, or dark and intense. Amazing what you can do with just two or three colours! Thanks my lovely 🙂
These are some gorgeous covers. I’m especially glad to see The Mime Order because that’s part of one of my all-time favourite series, and I love the covers for all The Raven Cycle books! 😀 I do have to say I’m not a massive fan of the UK cover for The Girl From Everywhere, I guess I just prefer the US version. 🙂
Great post Kate.
Thanks Beth! I’ve still not read The Bone Season, but I’m sure I’ll get to it eventually 😛 Ooh that’s interesting that you don’t like the UK cover of The Girl From Everywhere so much, because I’m not a fan of the US cover – I think it’s too plain!
I really like the covers you picked. The cover of American Street is gorgeous, I am very curious about that book.
These covers are gorgeous! The Raven King and Ink and Bone are my favourite covers on this list!
Thanks Sissi! I really like The Raven King cover but I’m also a big fan of American Street; I feel like the white background with all those colours in the middle just works so well 🙂
Oh yes! I like that cover too 😊
