Recommend A... meme

…Book With a Blue Cover

Recommend A… is a SUPER meme hosted by Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit that lets us get a little random, and a little off the radar. I LOVE IT.

You know why this one was hard, guys? Not because blue is an underrepresented color on book covers. No. There’s plenty. This was hard because most of the books I’ve read with blue covers all seem to be second, third, fourth, or even fifth books in a series, and I don’t want to recommend things out of order. My OCD won’t let me. So, here’s my contemp-heavy list. Yay, blue!

Moonglass by Jessi KirbyMoonglass by Jessi Kirby. Bluish-purple. Indigo! Anyway, this is a super-cute story about a young girl whose mother has committed suicide, and she’s back at the beach where her mother spent lots of time growing up, still trying to figure out what was going on in her mom’s head, and why she would choose to die over living with her family. There’s obviously a sweet romance, but there’s also a father/daughter relationship that I liked very much as well.

Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar. Blue twofer! It’s on the cover AND in the title! See those two Book cover for Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagarexclamation points there? That’s only a precursor to how much love and excitement and FEELINGS you’ll get from reading this Aussie contemp about a young surfer girl who’s got some damaging skeletons in her closet, and the guy who helps her move past them. Carly and Ryan are so amazing. PLUS, until this summer (until last week I believe!), this book was only available via generous friends with connections to Australian bookstores. But now that it’s pubbed in the UK, we can buy it online. This is the UK cover that will be in my hands shortly, but the original Aussie cover is blue, too.

Book cover for Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert MurdockDairy Queen (Dairy Queen #1) by Catherine Gilbert Murdock. One of my very favorite series, guys. Plus, I just LOVE the cow on this cover wearing the tiara. It’s such a hilarious image that, I think, gives a good idea of the vibe of this series about DJ Schwenk and her farm-dwelling family. I LOVE DJ, and I love the story of her struggling, hard working family. And I love her up-and-down relationship with Brian. So, so super.

    Dairy Queen is one of those instances where I judge the cover so hard. Like, I can’t stand it. I would never pick it up. But I’ve NEVER seen anything negative about this book!! Quite the opposite actually. So I KNOW I’m missing out on something special. *sigh*

    Moonglass is on my shelf, and I’m dying to read it after finishing In Honor. Jessi Kirby writes so beautifully.
