Top Ten Tuesday: Mardi Gras Special

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I think i can speak on behalf of everyone when they say they’d love to experience Mardi Gras at some point in their lives. The whole celebration sounds so lively and joyful. Now, to celebrate, this week’s topic is to spotlight covers that represent the Mardi Gras colours. Now, most of these books are gathering dust on my tbr shelf, so this can serve as a reminder to actually read them.

Yellow – The only book I’ve read from this list is Golden Son, which is probably a dubious choice for the list since it’s a hint of gold and not actually yellow, but who doesn’t love this book? The other three books on this list are a priorty read for me, even if I don’t know when I can prioritise them cause I’m such an on/off reader. Backman is easily one of my auto-buy authors, and the concept of Anxious People sounds hilariously heartwarming. I guarantee that book will pack a punch.

Green – In a surprise plot twist, I’ve read every single book on this list, and every single one of them is worth the smiles and tears. You all know how much I adore Jade City. It’s one of the best urban fantasy novels I’ve ever read. Similarly, Blue Lily, Lily Blue was possibly my favourite installment of the Raven Cycle. The Winner’s Kiss was a brillaint conclusion to the most painful reading experience, and The Piper’s Son is Melina Marchetta at her finest. Raw, real, and relatable.

Purple – Technically, A Crown of Wishes is more green than purple, but I couldn’t find a lot of purple book covers. I’ve read exactly two in this list. A Crown of Wishes beind one immersive and magical experience. Say You’ll Remember Me is everything you’d expect from a Katie McGarry book. Now, onto A Pho Love Story. Easily one of my most anticipated released of 2021 and I hope it’s as adorable as it looks. Meanwhile, How to Fail at Flirting is basically a summary of me. πŸ˜›

Have you read any of these books?
Do you celebrate Mardi Gras?

  1. I’m unfortunately one of those who hasn’t read Golden Sun or the books that come before it hahah I really hope to get around to Red Rising though. Anxious People was a quirky and nice read though and hopefully, you’ll have a blast with it. Not surprised to see Fonda Lee’s book here too. πŸ˜› Hope you can get around to those you haven’t read yet soon though. Great post, Lois! πŸ˜€

    1. Golden Son traumatised me so much that I’ve yet to actually read the third book, but it’s worth every second of it. Backman is an easy auto-buy author for me and I can easily see Anxious People being a favourite of mine.
