Top 5 (and more) green, blue and purple covers. Here again does the inside matches the outisde of the books?

Top 5 Tuesday is a tradition by now and you must know (I hope) that this meme is hosted by Shanah @bionicbookworm.

Laste week we talked about yellow, orange and red covers and this week it will be green, blue and purple ones!

At the public’s request I will still explain the meaning of these covers and compare with the story of the books to check if their covers were true to the tale! You can find their meaning on

First you have to know that purple and blue are my favorite covers! And colors in general.

Green though is not a common color in books or at least not on my bookshelves. Why is that?


Green is the color of nature and symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. It’s meant to make you feel safe (hospital wall are often painted in green). Dark green is also commonly associated with money (think dollars here!).

It suggests stability and endurance and sometimes a lack of experience.

Ok so based on the story I would say that it is so NOT green LOL The cover should have been red!


Blue is the color of the sky and sea meaning depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. It’s a color associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity.

I would say that all these books have confident characters, who are loyals and intelligent so ..yes. (I told you it was one of my favorite colors!)


Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. It is associated with royalty and symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

Power yes, ambition yes and nobility sometimes royalty even for these books. Check!

Now what are your favorite covers in these colors?

Thanks for reading!
