Top Ten Tuesday: Books with Yellow Covers





Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the theme is Characters from Different Books Who Should Team Up (or date, be friends with, etc.) (Submitted by Cathy @ WhatCathyReadNext) but I am going off piste!

Last weekend we went to an exhibition of French artist Pierre Bonnard. We saw a poster there that he created in the 1890s and I am seriously contemplating buying a print to put in our dining room. It's a bit odd really because yellow is not usually my colour, and the poster was very yellow.

So here are ten books with yellow covers.

Honey: Recipes from a Beekeepers Kitchen by Amy Newsome - I recently bought this cookbook!

Heartbake: A Bittersweet Memoir by Charlotte Ree - This is on my TBR list!

The Wonderful Thing About Phoebe Rose by Josephine Moon - I recently had this out from the library but had to return it unread unfortunately!

Yellowcake by Margo Lanagan - I read this short story collection years ago and loved it!

Half a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie  - Gosh, it's been a long time since I read this book (my review)

The Yellow House by Patricia Falvey - Another book I read years ago.

A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley
- Among the many series that I keep on saying I really need to get back to soon is the Flavia de Luce mystery series, featuring a precocious young girl as the sleuth. This is book 3 in the series.

Yellowface by R F Kuang - This book seems to be everywhere at the moment, so I had to include it in a list of books with yellow covers

Miss Cecily's Recipes for Exceptional Ladies by Vicky Zimmerman - I bought this book a while ago but still haven't read it! 

Lemon Meringue Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke - Another book I read years ago!

Can you think of any other books with yellow covers?


  1. Yellow normally isn’t my colour either, but these covers are nice. :)

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  2. Yellowface is well worth the read!

  3. Reminds me of that library/bookstore meme where there is a display called "I Don't Remember the Name But the Cover Was ______"!

  4. I like your topic. Yellow House & Miss Cecily are both books my Mom liked. I see your sidebar says you are reading two wine-themed books--wish I'd seen that last week when I did my wine books post! I'll note those two for an updated post next year

  5. I also went off topic today! Love all these yellow covers, thanks for sharing!

  6. Neat!
    I have only read Half a Yellow Sun. Great book, but so depressing too!!
    Funny I have 2 yellow books this week: one I just finished and one I just started, as you can see here: https://wordsandpeace.com/2023/08/13/sunday-post-91-08-13-2023-a-bit-of-everything/

  7. Yellow covers are so eye catching! I just finished reading The Trouble with Hating You by Sajni Patel, it has a mustard yellow cover with pinks and blues. Another yellow book I can think of is Float Plan by Trish Doller.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  8. These are great yellow covers! I've seen a bunch of fun yellow romance covers lately too.

  9. I love yellow! The whole inside of my house is painted a light, cheery yellow. It brightens things up and just makes me happy every day :)

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  10. I'm not a big fan of yellow as a colour to wear, but I do quite like yellow book covers, they always look very cheerful!

  11. Isn't it odd that the Red Herring title has a yellow cover?
