Top 5 Wednesdays: Emerald Covers

On Wednesdays I post my “Top 5” which comes from a Goodreads group that creates topics for bloggers to write about. This week the topic is “Emerald Covers”. The moderator clarified saying, “May’s birthstone is emerald so talk about those emerald covers. Not just green. EMERALD”.

The problem with this is that, though I love emerald covers, I’m not entirely sure when something is emerald or just… green. So, bear with me, please. Also, I have not read all of these books, but they do have beautiful green covers so they’re getting some recognition anyways.

Ever since this book finally made its way to my mailbox, I have been obsessed with the cover. Not only is the story inside brilliant and beautifully written, but the cover is so vibrant and eye catching. There are a couple different editions of this book but both seem to have that signature emerald color.


The Gilded Wolves (The Gilded Wolves, #1)The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Chokshi

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

This is one of the books on this list that I haven’t read, and frankly whether or not I ever will is completely up in the air. However, I will always give credit where credit is due and admit that I’ve thought that this was an absolutely gorgeous cover since it came out. I truly do love emerald covers. What’s not to love?


The Maze Runner (The Maze Runner, #1)The Maze Runner – James Dashner

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

It might not be entirely emerald, but there are definitely some tones in there… right? I told you I’m not good at this. To be completely frank, I love green covers regardless of whether its a dull green or a vibrant emerald green. I haven’t read this even though I own the whole series.



Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6)Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – J. K. Rowling

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

This is definitely more lime green than emerald but once again… there are some emerald tones. Ya know, if you look closely enough. I couldn’t leave out Harry Potter and the magical world of Hogwarts, now could I?



Splintered (Splintered, #1)Splintered – A. G. Howard

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

To be completely honest, I had never heard of this book before I found it while on the search for green covers. I think the cover is beautiful, but now that I now it’s a retelling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, I have to read it. Has anyone read this series before? Please let me know if it’s any good!



Aren’t green covers just so beautiful? I can’t get enough of them. What emerald (or green, I’m not one to judge) covers do you love? Talk to me (:

  2. I figured Evelyn Hugo would be on this list!! I also have no idea what is emerald and what is just green, elementary school Arin who regularly went to art classes may have though. The first cover I can think of that is green (probably not emerald? Idk) is my version of The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.

    1. Evelyn HAD to be included on this list! And it’s just too hard to decipher what’s green and what’s a specific hue of green 😂 It’s all just…. green… And oooh, do you have the edition with the park bench and the dogs and the grass in the background? It’s so pretty!
