Leslie @ Books Are The New Black created a fun monthly post featuring book covers that fit the birthstone of the month.This can be the color of the cover or the color in the title.
Anyone can join, just be sure to give credit where it’s due.
I’m doing this a little earlier this month, but May’s birthstone is so aptly chosen for this time of year. It’s emerald, baby, and it’s gorgeoussss. The dark green hues just remind me to spring and the growth of everything around me (plus my allergies but we don’t have to talk about that).
As I’ve done with the other months, I’ve picked an assortment of book covers I hope represent this birthstone well. If you enjoy a book or two on this list, please give a shout out in the comments below!
- The Body Electric by Beth Revis
- The Body in the Woods by April Henry
- Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
- Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
- Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman
- Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
- A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer
- The Cruelest Mercy by Natalie Mae
