Read a book with more than 3 colors on the cover.

Are you tired of feeling blue but totally ready to feel yellow, green, or purple? Do you want to paint with all the colors of the wind but just can’t see them? These books are for you! Publishers are favoring bright, colorful covers more and more, and that means our shelves are getting fuller and prettier at the same time.

*please note* If you are color-blind, just do your best. Honestly, we’ll just give you a pass on this one.

The vanishing half The night watchman : a novelThe revisioners : a novel

These colorful “Book Club” books are so popular that they may already be on your list of books to read.

Dancing with the tiger Black leopard, red wolf The immortalists

Vivid patterns on a dark background? Don’t mind if I do. These covers are eye-catching and well-reviewed.

Somebody's daughter : a memoir Untamed The Anthropocene reviewed : essays on a human-centered planet

Nonfiction books can be colorful too! These popular titles have real stories behind their bright covers.

Friends and strangers Just like you Red at the bone

These covers all feature a style affectionately called the “Book Blob” that has risen to prominence in the last few years.

The female persuasion The incendiaries Filthy animals

They really said, “Take that ‘Book Blob’ but make it \angles\!”

The ensemble The stationery shop The queen of hearts

Flowers are a great way to add some color to your office, house, or book cover! These titles all make wonderful use of the snazzy Angiosperms.

After the sun Dead astronauts Underland : a deep time journey

Many of these covers feature bold elements, but these three make use of general effects to blend many colors into one eye-catching background.

You me everything The care and feeding of ravenously hungry girls The reading list : a novel

These are all staff favorites, and they prove that there are many ways to fulfill this vibrant challenge. Whether you choose a realistic landscape, an abstract design, or an illustrative pattern, all you need is a colorful cover to get started.

We are looking forward to a year full of challenging new reads with you!

Happy reading!

In 2022, read a book…
