Colorful Covers | Green

Hi everyone!

Today we are on to the next color in the Colorful Covers series! If you are new here, this is a series where I recommend you books completely based on the colors of their covers! I originally saw the Owlcrate team do this on their YouTube channel and thought it was a fun idea!

This month’s color is GREEN!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan. But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to. Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life?

Starting off with the most popular title! When I first read this book it was everything to me. I related so much to the struggles Cath was having while at college. I remember reading certain scenes and just thinking *this is literally me!* I also loved the fandom storyline. It was a lot of fun to see Cath thrive in her element. And the romance…OMG my heart. It was totally swoon worthy! If you haven’t read this book yet, please do! You won’t regret it.

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.” …

I’m cheating a little bit with this one. The actual cover for this book is black, but the Owlcrate cover is green so I am counting it. The Hazel Wood is a dark and creepy fantasy about fairytale stories that come to life. I highly recommend going the audiobook route!

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life. Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

This book is absolutely fantastic! The main character Audrey Rose is such an amazing character. She goes after what she wants & she doesn’t let anyone or anything hold her back. Her relationship with Thomas Cresswell is also 10/10! I actually need to do a reread of this soon so I can continue with the rest of the series.

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try. Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile. But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.

It has been over two years since I read this book and I STILL think about it all the time. These characters and their story will definitely stick with you for a long time. If you are into fandoms, then this is definitely the book for you. Eliza and Her Monsters celebrates the power of online friends and community.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career. She listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ’80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

We are ending on one of the best books I have ever read in my entire life. I say that but it’s still so hard for me to explain why I love Evelyn Hugo so much. This book is about being who you want to be regardless of who you are expected to be. It’s about finding your own definition of family. It’s about loving whoever the hell you want to love. Evelyn Hugo is perfection and I beg you to read it!
