Autumn colored book covers

Red, orange and yellow leaves, bright blue skies, spooky fog and black and orange

Connect Five Friday is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. (The hashtag is #connect5books) This is a fun and creative way to think about my books and reading. Check out Kathyrn’s blog and link up your Friday Five!

The five book-related items need to connect in some way, but each person who participates can decide for themselves what the book subject and connection is. For example, you could write about five books read last year or five books you want to read. It could even be favorite bookstores or five movies made from books.


Sometimes I don’t pay enough attention to book covers especially since most of the books I read are either ebooks or audiobooks so this week I thought I would look at books I’ve read so far this year and look for ones that remind me of autumn colors.

When I think of autumn I think of blue skies, autumn leaves in reds, yellows and oranges and spooky Halloween with foggy gray skies and orange and black. Here are five covers that make me think of autumn. (Even though I don’t remember what season the books took place!)

I have to admit before I did this I hadn’t really thought of colors and seasons unless the book cover specifically showed a summer or winter scene or maybe took place during Halloween! It was fun looking at book covers in a different way.

Do you ever look at the colors on book covers and think of a specific season even if the book doesn’t take place during that season?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

    1. Thanks, Tammy! On my Kindle the covers are black and white so I don’t really notice them. That’s one reason it’s so nice to see other people’s blogs and to have my own blog, too. I notice book covers a lot more that way.


    1. I hadn’t thought of The Art of the Theft either, Katherine, until I looked at it and thought how spooky fog can be and that it makes for spooky Halloween vibes!


    1. Thanks! It was fun to go back through the books I’ve read this year to find these. They’re all mysteries so I guess having dramatic colors works for them.


  1. I love autumn colours, my favourite. We don’t have a huge autumn colouring when it is here as I don’t have a lot of deciduous trees around me, but I do love them.


    1. I love fall colors, too, Kathryn. The deciduous trees we have in our yard in Iowa mostly just turn yellow so I was happy to see my daughter’s dramatic trees.
