Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books with Blue, White & Red Covers


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This weeks topic is Top Ten Books with Red, White, & Blue Covers. (
In honour of the 4th of July in the USA. Choose covers with your own country’s colours if you prefer!) <—Same colours for us! But we changed them around a bit.
