S4S – Monochrome books

Morning #SixforSunday‘ers!

How are we all? I hope your day is not grey today!

Today’s prompt is:

Monochrome books

I have to admit I struggled a bit with this one! I don’t own/know of that many monochrome books! We’ll see… 

  1. The Call – Paedar O’Guilin
  2. Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern (mostly black and white, featuring some red!)
  3. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Perculiar Children – Ransom Riggs
  4. A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness 
  5. The Lie Tree – Frances Hardinge (yes, yes I know… but this was one of my first thoughts!)
  6. Noughts and Crosses – Malorie Blackman (I own the beautiful rainbow covers, but I KNOW there’s a black and white version of these covers!)

Remember to share your #SixforSunday choices with me! I would love to see what you can all come up with, and if you struggled as much as me! 

See you next week for ‘Metallic Books’ (aka the books you can guarantee I will ALWAYS pick up)

    First time I’ve tried this, I dont remember the rules and some have a dash of colour to contrast with the monochrome in the interests of the storytelling and also they are technically picture books for older readers but lets give it a go! Monochrome books #sixforsunday
