The rains are upon us! The sky overcast. The clouds grey and ready to spill.
The mood is grey, happy, light: whatever floats your boat.
To add to the blues, here is a fun series: Colour Code!
Colour Code gives recommendations based on book covers’ colours. Sometimes, it is okay to judge a book by its cover! Or colour!
It is Monday and we all suffer from the Monday blues! But, I don’t know why blues has such a reputation in the English language. The colour blue certainly doesn’t way weigh me down or give me a bout of moodiness.
Blue can be such a refreshing colour!
Imagine infinite blue skies, punctured with pure cotton clouds!
Imagine a pristine river gushing quietly.
Imagine the rich blue in an ink pot, the nib of the fountain pen dripping.
It is all blue. How can this vividness give anyone sadness? How is there anything dull about blue?
Grey/gray I can imagine being dull.
But blue? No. Just cannot fathom.
But before I start again on rants about blue and its misuse, let’s get back to the topic.
So for the first edition, Colour Code brings to you books with a blue cover written by female authors.
Aren’t the covers simply gorgeous?
Now, that we are done ogling at them and perhaps changing our mind about blue being dull, let’s see what the books are about, in alphabetical order.
