Six for Sunday – Blue Books

Six for Sunday is Steph at alittlebutalot‘s creation with a prompt each week to blog about.

Today’s prompt is:

Books with Blue Covers

A book for all ages – The Fox and The Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith

Just gorgeous (though not as satisfyingly wry as The Bird and the Worm!)

A picture book – Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers

I don’t mention Oliver Jeffers nearly enough when talking about my favourite picture books and picture book authors. This is up there!

An early chapter book – The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson

Speaking of favourites – I grew up with Plop. He has a firm place in both mine and my mum’s hearts!

An MG book – The Time of Green Magic by Hilary McKay

I really loved this, but I think it’s been a bit under-rated! It has such a cosy feel for this time of year. You can read my review of it here.

A YA bookHis Dark Materials vol. 1: Northern Lights

Another favourite! I’ve just finished my re-read of the trilogy so had to pick this one. Not sure yet what I think of the TV series – anyone else watching it?

An adult book – The Binding by Bridget Collins

Atmospheric, historic, gothic and bookish – even the fact that it’s a love story in disguise couldn’t put me off! You can read my review here.

  1. I have The Time of Green Magic – going to try to read it in December – after I’ve finished Believathon which is keeping me busy. I love fantasy, yet I couldn’t get into His Dark Materials when I was younger. I really need to give them a re-try! I’m watching the TV series, and enjoying it but I must admit I’m a little confused by some parts which I imagine would be easier to understand if I’d read the books!

    • Green Magic will be a great December read!
      I never tried HDM when I was younger but I’m not sure if have got into it, or indeed got as much out of it, then – I definitely think it’s worth another try. I can’t imagine the series without having read the books but yes, there’s lots that having read them you know where it’s going or what’s being set up etc
