The Rainbow Book Tag

Part of the fun of book shopping is looking at all of the covers of the book. So, I thought this rainbow book tag would be fun to complete. I get to appreciate cover art and some of my favorite books all at the same time. I found this tag on Kelly’s blog.

The Rules:

  • Thank the lovely person that tagged you!
  • It must be the dominant color of the cover, not the spine!
  • It has to be a book you own or the exact copy that you read. (Ex: There are two copies of The Hate U Give, choose the cover of the copy you read)
  • If you do not own a book of the certain cover, choose one that has the color somewhere on it.
  • Tag some people do it! Whether they are bloggers, bookstagrammers, or booktubers. Spread the love!
  • Make it a game or do the tag as originally intended.

Red | Dear Marin by Nic Stone


“You can’t change how other people think and act, but you’re in full control of you. When it comes down to it, the only question that matters is this: If nothing in the world ever changes, what type of man are you gonna be?”
― Nic StoneDear Martin

Orange | A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park


“One step at a time, one day at a time, just today, just this day to get through.”

Yellow | The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis


“Harry, there is never a perfect answer in this messy, emotional world. Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic. In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again. Be honest to those you love, show your pain. To suffer is as human as to breathe.”

Green | The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee


“He raises his head. “You’re nothing like your father, Monty. For a start, you’re far more decent than he is.”

I’m not sure how, after all the terrible things I’ve done, he can possibly mean that. “You might be the only person left on earth who thinks me decent.”

Between us, I feel his knuckles brush mine. Perhaps it’s by chance, but it feels more like a question, and when I spread my fingers in answer, his hand slides into mine.

“Then everyone else doesn’t know you.”
― Mackenzi LeeThe Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

Blue | Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley


“words do matter. They’re not pointless. If they were pointless then they couldn’t start revolutions and they wouldn’t change history and they wouldn’t be the things that you think about every night before you go to sleep. If they were just words we wouldn’t listen to songs,”
― Cath CrowleyWords in Deep Blue

Turquoise | Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella


“The trouble is, depression doesn’t come with handy symptoms like spots and a temperature, so you don’t realize it at first. You keep saying ‘I’m fine’ to people when you’re not fine. You think you should be fine. You keep saying to yourself: ‘Why aren’t I fine?”
― Sophie KinsellaFinding Audrey

Purple | And I Darken by Kiersten White


“On our wedding night,” she said, “I will cut out your tongue and swallow it. Then both tongues that spoke our marriage vows will belong to me, and I will be wed only to myself. You will most likely choke to death on your own blood, which will be unfortunate, but I will be both husband and wife and therefore not a widow to be pitied.”
― Kiersten WhiteAnd I Darken

Pink | The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon


“We are capable of big lives. A big history. Why settle? Why choose the practical thing, the mundane thing? We are born to dream and make the things we dream about.”
― Nicola YoonThe Sun Is Also a Star

Brown | I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak


“Only in today’s sick society can a man be persecuted for reading too many books.”
― Markus ZusakI Am the Messenger

White | The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

― S.J. KincaidThe Diabolic
