Rainbow Reads: Books With Blue Covers

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

I usually sort these posts by Ya books with blue covers, fiction books with blue covers, non-fiction books with blue covers, etc.

But I’m not today, or probably in the future. I feel like it’s not entirely necessary if I’m including the genre of each book anyway.

So, if you want to continue your Rainbow Reads challenge or just a one off for a book bingo or something, here are tons of amazing books with blue covers in tons of genres for you to choose from.

No matter what you like to read, you’ll be able to find some great options here. The blues are a variety of shades and some have other colors on them but as long as the majority of the cover is blue, it counts.

  • If you want to listen to some of these, consider trying Audible! You can get your first month free (one free book) plus tons of others they have for free.  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. It’s $9.99 a month but if you read a lot and like to read more than just new releases, it could be worth it. Get Kindle Unlimited here!
  • Get $5 off of $25 from BookOutlet! This is a great place to find new books for pretty cheap. They also have sales quite a bit, so keep an eye out for those. I tend to check here for books I want if they’re more expensive other places. They don’t have everything but they do have a lot. Get that deal here.
  • Thrift Books has become my go-to when I’m looking for a book and want it cheap. It’s great if you like buying used books. With this you can get a free book after spending $30!
  • Shop my book lists here! You can find every book list I have on Bookshop.org (except my monthly round-ups) and I add everything I can but they occasionally won’t have some. I do occasionally add extras though. If any lists are empty, they’ll be filled in shortly! Shop my bookshop.org book lists here.
