I know this week’s theme was books with your favorite color on the cover, but I’ve done that in the past – my favorite color is teal, so you can check out that list! So instead, I decided to create a purple cover list!

  1. Marvels by Brian Selznick
  2. Echo by Pam Muñoz Ryan
  3. The Problim Children by Natalie Lloyd
  4. The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing by Sheila Turnage
  5. Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
  6. The Entirely True Story of the Unbelievable FIB by Adam Shaughnessy
  7. Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin
  8. Shadow Weaver by Marcy Kate Connolly
  9. The Secret of Dreadwillow Carse by Brian Farrey
