Today is a celebration of the color purple.
To be completely honest, I am keen on all sorts of colors, but purple makes me smile. It’s regal and pretty and the color of lilacs and dreams. I have exactly twelve books in my personal library that are purple-ish enough to qualify – so voila! Twelve glorious books in perfect purpleness just for you on this fine Tuesday.
I’m not the sort of person who rainbow-organizes her books. The aesthetic-lover in me WANTS to, but the more sensible, organized mind knows I’d never be able to find ANYTHING if I did that. So books of my favorite color only make up about 5% of my total library. I guess it’s good to know I’m not buying books just because they’re purple?
So, of these books, I would like to heartily recommend the completely under-loved and under-read Poison by Chris Wooding. I picked that one up back in the day when Borders was having their going out of business sale and really, really enjoyed it. A lot of these other ones are mid-series books (three of them are the third book in the series? So I guess purple is a good third book color?) but Poison is a standalone and a short book… you could read it in a weekend.
