Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books with my Favourite Colour on the Cover.
There are a lot of books that have my favourite colour on the cover. The ones I picked for this week’s theme have just been selected from the books I own, there are plenty more out there I’ve yet to read or that have yet to be released, so I changed the topic to Top Ten Favourite Books in my Favourite Colour.
These are all books I loved, books I’ve already talked about plenty of times before and will definitely talk about more in the future. Chances are you’ve already heard way too much from me about some of these, but prepare for another post featuring them.
No prizes for guessing my favourite colour. It should be very obvious.

“No,” she whispered over those fields. “No, you can’t have this part of me.”
If they tried to take Sam, she’d do anything she could to stop them, but that choice was his. This one was hers.
