    I have at least three of these on my TBR, Red Sister, Red Rising and Red Seas….
    The Lisa Tuttle book looks intriguing too just based on that cover. It’s not one i’ve heard of before.
    Great list 🙂

      I love the covers for the Tuttle series and they made such a great start – which reminds me I should check out if there are any more out or due out.

    Darn you just reminded me I needed to read Devil’s Call still. I’ve heard such good things. I do see one of my favorite books of all time here – Certain Dark Things. I really am drawn to black, white and red covers and if I hadn’t chose purple, this would have been my next choice.

      Certain Dark things was such a good book – I loved it. Hope you get a chance to pick up Devil’s Call soon.

    Oooh, great color choice. Several of these are favorites of mine as well. They all look so beautiful together, don’t they?

    That’s a clever connection with the color red. 😉 I love the third cover on top and the first on the bottom row.

    How very pretty! What a lovely selection of covers – they look fabulous together! The one I particularly want to get hold of is Certain Dark Things… Which makes me want to stroke it.

    I’ve always loves The Girl With Ghost Eyes and Certain Dark Things covers, but also love that Holly Black cover, not sure I’ve noticed it before

    • @lynnsbooks

      I enjoyed the Curse Worker series but then I’m a bit of a sucker for Holly Black’s writing.

    One of my favorite color schemes for covers is red-white-black, so needless to say, I love your post!

    • @lynnsbooks

      They all look so lovely together. I liked this idea very much.

    I can’t get over these covers. 😍 they are so beautiful

    […] enough, and purely coincidental I recently posted this piece featuring covers with the word ‘red’ in the title so I’ve stayed clear of these […]
