Rainbow Reads: Books With Green 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! It’s been a while but were here today with alllll of the books with green covers.

As usual, this is broken down into three sections: YA books with green covers, fiction books with green covers, and non-fiction books with green covers.

This took me forever to put together (mostly because of technical difficulties) but the selections here are my favorite of the rainbow reads so far.

There are a lot I’ve read but just as many I want to read. I try to include of variety of authors and genres in here but there are a lot of thrillers on here. A lot. And travel books. That’s why I love this one so much.

  • If you’re want to listen to some of these, consider trying Audible! Righ now you can get four months for just $5.95 a month plus a $20 Audible credit. That’s a steal for Audible!  Get that Audible deal here.
  • If you’re on more of a budget, try Scribd!  You can get your first month free there. You can read books and listen to audiobooks. It is unlimited (especially the reading) but if you listen to tons of new audiobooks you may be restricted after a few. I don’t listen to enough to confirm this, but I do use Scribd myself and like it a lot.
  • If you want to read more on your Kindle but don’t want to buy books, Kindle Unlimited is a wonderful option and right now you can get four months for $4.99! It’s usually $9.99 so this is a great deal. Get that deal here!
