Rainbow Reads: Books With Orange Covers

There are affiliate links in here.  I get a small commission if you purchase through them at no extra cost to you.

Welcome back to my rainbow reads series! Next up we’ve got books with orange covers. This one was a little more difficult than the red, but once I got in my groove I started finding a lot more.

I try to steer away from really popular books but a few sneak through. I also try to keep the list diverse in characters featured and by authors. Finally, I try to keep a variety of genres, but there is a lot of contemporary out there, so there is a lot on this list.

If you’re not a contemporary fan though, don’t worry. I bet you can find something on this list you’d like! There are over 40 books on it, after all!

YA books with orange covers

First up we have YA books with orange covers. This is always my favorite section to put together. There are a lot of contemporary/romance books in this section, but I try and find some variety. There are a few fantasy books and one even features a photo from Follow Me Away!
