My Favourite Books with Purple on the Cover

Purple is such an underrated colour, and I think this is my new favourite post in this series. I’m lucky enough to have an entire shelf dedicated to my beautiful purple books but in typical bookworm fashion, I now want more! I had so much fun searching through my bookshelves and various bookish accounts to create another aesthetically pleasing post and I now can’t stop looking at all of them!

What fascinates me every time I write this posts is the theory and meaning behind each colour and how different shades can change the tone and reaction. I’ve fallen down a major rabbit hole and it’s so interesting to learn about each colour and their connotations. Let’s take purple for example, it’s a combination of red and blue and takes on some attributes of both and is associated with creativity and imagination, a fitting colour for all these incredible books!


Royal Purple

Let’s start strong with a classic bold statement cover!

Dark Purple

I don’t need any more purple books, I don’t need anymore purple books, I don’t need anymore purple books….

Well a couple more won’t hurt!

Cosy Sunset Purple

Just looking at these covers is making me smile, not only are they beautiful but they’ve got such a positive and feel-good feeling about them! I’ve fallen head over hells for The Wild Ones cover and I look forward to adding to my bookshelf soon.

Lilac Dreams

I thought pink was the colour of romance but I was wrong! I associate pink with instant-cheesy romance novels but there something tender and delightful about a purple romance cover, it’s softer but still just as adorable.

Magical Purple

I don’t know about you, but I’m fully obsessed with that cover for Lost in the Never Woods, its beautiful! There’s something wonderfully magical about purple and these books are giving me all the Agatha Harkness vibes!

Starlight Purple

I’m obsessed with everything to do with the night sky and I could happily spend an evening star gazing or gazing lovingly at these covers, they’re beautiful. They capture the wonder and unknown of space and are full of out-of-this-world storylines that you can’t help but enjoy.

The Hero’s Moment

How epic and badass do these’s protagonists look? I certainly wouldn’t want to mess with them!

Pinky Purple

Another group of covers that embrace colour and that will stand out on your bookshelves.

Purple Mix

There was no way that I was going to write a purple books post without including the A Sky Beyond the Storm cover, that cover is intense and I don’t think Elias and Laia have looked better! I’m not emotionally prepared to dive back into this series but the pain of not knowing what happens to my beloved characters is killing me!

Dark Purple

And last but not least, this dark mysterious purple. I can’t stop looking at the Beasts Made of Night Cover, every time I look at it I spot something different.

  1. These are so gorgeous! I don’t often pay attention to covers, so I never noticed just how many have purple, but it’s absolutely a lovely color on a book.

  2. Lavender is my favourite colour, and you’re right; it’s so underrated! My bookshelves are organised by colour and some of my favourites are purple: Tales from the Arabian nights, my edition of the philosophers stone! Great post!
