Six for Sunday- Wintery Blue Covers

#SixforSunday is hosted by Steph at A Little But A Lot. Every week there is a bookish-themed prompt to inspire 6 choices.

This month focuses on Winter books and this week the prompt is books with Blue Covers.

Apologies to those who have already read this blog post yesterday or through email, something quite annoying happened whilst setting up my new phone, the original post was an unfortunate casualty of that process but thank goodness my mum is an email subscriber so I have re-uploaded and fingers crossed it works!!!

Now I have plenty of blue covered books from Murder Most Unladylike, The Apprentice Witch, even Snowglobe which sounds Wintery but actually is set during warmer months. Blue is actually the most prolific colour on my shelves.

So I set myself the challenge of Blue covers but must have Wintery themes and I wanted to include at least one early chapter and a picture book in my collection too.

The Girl Who Speaks Bear- Sophie Anderson & cover by Kathrin Honesta

The girl who speaks bear

The Girl Who Speaks Bear is an amazing book set in the snows of winter and begins during an Ice Festival.

Lightning Chase me Home- Amber Lee Dodd- Cover designed by Kate Forrester

Lightning Chase me Home

Lightning Chase me Home is an emotional tale about a girl who lives on a remote Scottish Island who struggles with dyslexia and the bullying that can attend children with special needs BUT she discovers she has a greater watery secret as the storms of winter set in.

The Conspiracy of Magic by Harriet Whitehorn- Cover by Maria Surdacan

The conspiracy of magic

This follow up to the Company of Eight (which began in snow and turned tropical quickly) takes place in the Wintery festive North towards early Spring so is perfect for this prompt with its icy glowing tones.

Amelia Fang & the Lost Yeti Treasure– Laura Ellen Anderson

We love Amelia Fang so to see a proper Wintery adventure is wonderful!

Magical Kingdom of Birds: The Ice Swans – Anne Booth cover illustration By Rosie Butcher

The Magical Kingdom of birds- the ice swans

We love the Magical Kingdom of Birds not only is it wonderfully fun, it’s one of the few children’s books that has a fantasy & magical setting with a disabled protagonist AND she doesn’t use magic to solve her problems but has wonderful adventures working with her disabilities not I spite others hindered by them with a sprinkling of non-fiction knowledge to boot.

We will be devastated to see this series end next year especially as currently there isn’t really anything remotely like it to fill the gap.

The Snow Dragon – Abi Elphinstone & illustrated by Fiona Woodcock

The Snow Dragon

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous retelling of Abi’s story of a homeless girl who does not want to give up hope in the magic of the festive season and snow.

Heartwarming a book to make Christmas traditions with- honestly, this could be The Snowman for younger generations.

What would you choose from your blue covered books?
