Top Ten Tuesday: Red, Green, or Gold Dresses

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!  This week’s topic was freebie.  Since Christmas is swiftly approaching, I decided to browse Goodreads in search of book covers featuring beautiful red, green, or gold dresses.  I’ve only read Beauty, so I can’t say if the others are good or not.  If you’ve ready any, let me know what you thought!

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand-I love the deep red of this dress.  I’ve enjoyed the Lady Janies series so many I should give those authors individual work a look.



Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen-I’ve featured this cover before as it is so pretty!  I’ve not read it yet though.


Beauty by Robin Mckinley-A beautiful golden cover!


Rumors by Anna Godbersen-I know nothing about this series, but that is a gorgeous red dress!

Daughter of Silk by Linda Lee Chaikin-I love the green and gold of this cover.


Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder-A gold and red cover!


Once: Before Midnight/Golden/Wild Orchid by Cameron Dokey-Such a gorgeous deep green.


The Lightkeeper’s Ball by Collen Coble-Another red and gold cover!


The Sister Queens by Sophie Perinot-Red and green dresses on the same cover!  I also think this sounds intriguing.


Love’s Reckoning by Laura Frantz-I’ll end with this glowing cover.


Which cover was your favorite?  Have you read any of these?  If so, what would you recommend?

  5. These do look so pretty! I’ve only read Poison Study and I remember liking it, but I never continued the series.

    • Poinsettia says

      I’m glad you enjoyed my list! I have a friend who read Poison Study and the rest of the series, but I haven’t yet. I’d like to at some point.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting! 🙂

  6. I had a dress like that Once dress once. To risk outing myself as the ancient woman I am, I also had shoes dyed to match. ?

    My freebie is here:

    Happy TTT!
