Top 5 Tuesday #43: Black & Orange

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by Shanah, the Bionic Book Worm, and now managed by Meeghan at Meeghan Reads.

This week’s topic:

Black & Orange Covers

Favorite books that have black or orange on the cover
(I selected a couple books from my collection that have those colors on the cover.
I haven’t read any of them.)

Twisted: The Tangled History of Black Hair Culture by Emma Dabiri

A nonfiction book about Black people’s hair. I think the U.K. title for it is Don’t Touch My Hair. It’s so confusing when publishers give the same book two different titles.

Stephen Biesty’s Cross-Sections Castle by Richard Platt, illus. by Stephen Biesty

Children’s picture book about what life’s like in a castle

Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett

The second book in the Death subseries of the Discworld fantasy series

Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx by Joe Todd-Stanton (illus.)

The second book in a children’s fantasy picture book series that touches on myths

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

A historical fiction novel about four Chinese women who immigrated to the U.S. and meet weekly to play mahjong and talk about what they left behind and what they hope for their daughters

Beauty and the Beast: Retold From the Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont Original by Agnese Baruzzi (illus.)

A children’s picture book on the Beauty and the Beast fairytale. Both illustrations and cut-outs are used.

LET ME KNOW IF YOU’vE read any of these.

  1. I haven’t read any of these but I adore the combination of different types of books you’ve got in here, from non-fiction to children’s, all with the common colour theme. I hope the ones you haven’t read are enjoyable when you get that far!
