Article: Read The Rainbow

I know we are not supposed to “judge a book by its cover” but sometimes, the beautiful covers are just too hard to resist. As an avid book nerd I am a bit embarrassed to say that sometimes I just can’t NOT get a book with a pretty cover. My favorite? The books that have slightly textured covers or pages; they just get my book nerd heart fluttering! For awhile I even organized my bookshelves by color (Dewey is rolling in his grave, RIP).

I have compiled a list of books that are both amazing and beautiful in their own ways. All of these books received at least a 4 star review on my blog! Enjoy reading the rainbow!

This book is bound to be a classic!

A sci-fi thriller that will twist your brain until it is hard to think anymore.

BEAUTIFUL YA novel about a girl suffering from PTSD and anxiety. This book was a life-changer for me.

Science for everyone! This book has enough technical jargon to appease the super nerds, but is in 'plain english' so everyone can understand.

An amazing and beautiful book that you should read. Like now.

A YA novel that you will not forget anytime soon. Isn't the cover just calling to you?

This book will tug the heartstrings, a lot. Prepare yourself.

Another YA book to add to the list of 'should have read yesterday' because we all have one of those lists.

This thriller will get your heart pounding.

Now for a few happy books, Amy Poehler, fricking hilarious.

A memoir about Jenny Lawson's struggle with mental illness and how she conquered it.

The best book you will ever read.

The second best book you will ever read.

Now that I just inundated your TBR pile with beautiful books go read! And (this is crazy, I know) the pictures of the covers are links to Amazon. Buy for you, for a friend, anyone. Have fun with these beautiful books.
