Rainbow Book Tag

Brace yourself for a ton of Spanish book editions.

I’m finally getting around to do this… 4 months late. Thanks to Iris @ Hoard of Books for tagging me!

The idea is to find a book you own for each of the cover colors listed, and let me tell you, some of these pictures were so. Hard. To find. Apparently the covers I own are not the most common ones, but I do like them better than most other editions, so there’s that. Why didn’t I just grab a camera and take some pictures myself? Well, reasons. That don’t involve sitting on the couch and lazily eating peanut butter. (No, really, I’ve never done that.)

Since I’m from Spain (surprise!), I decided to go through my oldies’ shelf and drop a pile of Spanish editions on you. You’ll be fine down there. They’re lightweight. More or less.



  • It must be the dominant colour of the cover not the spine
  • If you do not own a book of a certain colour, just choose one that has the colour on it somewhere.
  • It has to be a book you own and/or has to be the exact edition you read (e. g. there are two different covers for Me Before You, you would choose the one you read)
  • Tag some people to do it! Whether they be Bloggers, Bookstagrammers or BookTubers.

I haven’t read this book. Great start to the list, right? It’s been sitting on my bookshelf for like, 9 years now.

I bought it after watching the Eragon movie (as if that would be enough to know what happened in the first book…) and was already confused on the first page. Big mistake. I don’t know if it’s a book I’d enjoy or not, but it’s likely it’ll never be read.

Throwing some more dragons in. I’ve had this book for as long as the other one, but I’ve actually read it. I have to say, this first cover below is much nicer than mine.

Alice in Wonderland

by Lewis Carroll

This is probably my favorite classic. I borrowed it from my mom’s classics collection, which looks something like THIS but bigger. I guess it’s not surprising that I’m such a book-crazy person? (Can’t say I like many classics though).

I almost put this one as the purple book, but then realized only the spine is purple. There are only… Two pictures of this cover on the internet. Two. Then a thousand other editions.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

by C.S. Lewis

I got this whole series from one of those book subscription things that comes with a newspaper, which is probably something that doesn’t exist anymore. (Or does it?? I don’t even know).

It came with a Narnia themed alarm clock. And wow, that alarm… It was like waking up to a fire truck in your bedroom. But the books were pretty great, of course.

The Alchemist

by Paulo Coelho

This has a bit of purple in it!

The Alchemist was one of the assigned reading books I enjoyed the most in high school.

It’s set in Spain and Africa… But it’s written by a Brazilian author… And it’s the only book in this list I actually read in English. It’s like a peanut butter swirl milkshake of countries (yeah, I just mentioned peanut butter again…).

The Last Battle

by C.S. Lewis

This is the only pink book I could find. It seems I could get through most of this tag with books from this series…

Kadingir – The scepter of Zink

by Joan Llongueras, Mercè Masnou

This is such a wacky book. I laughed a lot while reading it, which is probably why I’d eat dinner faster, sneak away to bed and stay up late on school nights when I got it. Fun times.

The Alaskan Mystery

by Carolyn Keene, Franklin W. Dixon

My copy probably looks way older than this picture. I got it second-hand, though I don’t remember when or whom it was from.

I once tried to read every single version of the choose your own adventure. Not sure if I failed or not. But I probably failed.

George’s Secret Key to the Universe

by Lucy Hawking, Stephen Hawking

Some backstory: About 9ish years ago, I was in the 4th grade, I won a writing contest and the school principal gave me a Geronimo Stilton book for it. It was a pretty thick book, 500 pages or so, but Geronimo being Geronimo, it had like, a thousand pictures and crazy things everywhere (there’s a page with chocolate scent, believe it or not), so… I read it all that same afternoon. The principal was somewhat shocked. The next year, I won the contest again, and he was like, “I’m giving you a real book this time”, and this was it! I can say I definitely liked it.


So that’s it! Since I’m so late, I’m not going to tag anyone, but leave a link in the comments if you give it a try.

Let's talk!

Have you read any of these? Which cover did you like the most? And do you own any books you don’t plan to read?

  1. Your teacher gave you a Geronimo Stilton book in tenth grade? Really? That’s sort of hilarious!
    And wow, some of those covers are really pretty! I love the Inkheart one, and George’s Secret Key to the Universe literally has the most beautiful cover ever!

  2. Oh boy, Eragon. Erase the movie from your mind promptly and read the book! I suppose I can see how anyone may have enjoyed that without reading the series, but really, you MUST read the series. The story is different, and much much better…. and, yup, the movie would definitely leave you lost at the beginning on book 2. 🙂 It’s one of those ones that were REALLY badly done, but could have been epic and amazing…you’ll have to take my word for it. 😉

    Your Narnia covers are a lot prettier than mine! 🙂 ❤

    1. Oh my, yes, I’ve been hearing that about the movie for years 😂 I don’t remember much of it at this point, but what I do remember is not great 🤔 I’ve never felt like actually reading the book, but maybe I’ll change my mind because of you! 😂

  3. I do like that cover of Eldest and Eon!! I haven’t read the first and I wasn’t in love with the latter unfortunately BUT PFFT DRAGONS!! 😍 Huge undeniable adoration afjdkslafd. Also this tag is super fun! I love rainbows!

  4. Oh this is such a fun tag! The cover of Inkheart is adorable! I feel like it’s probably challenging to find one in every color, actually. I have/had soooo many books I was never going to read- I am in the process of ridding myself of them now, but if I am being honest, I am sure there will still be plenty left that I won’t read 😉

  5. Oh yay Narnia!! I looooved Narnia when I was little (okay who are we kidding?! I still adore it now😂) and that’s really cool you collected it with the newspaper-subscription-thingie! I remember those.😂 in Australia they did one for Angelina Ballerina and you got outfits for a toy mouse with each magazine or something? My little sister was super into that haha.

    I also have books in like…wow…every colour of ever.😂 I’m pretty sure I own mostly blue books though…it seems a popular YA colour?!
