Let’s Talk Book Covers: Teal

I have an obsession with book covers because they can be so captivating, and yes I do sometimes judge books based on the cover. It’s okay, you can admit it too. My hope for this series is so you can not only see the gorgeous art of these book covers, but to help add more books to your TBR collection.

If you missed my other features in this series, toggle below to Let’s Talk Book Covers:

The next color will be:

Teal combines the calming properties of blue with the renewal qualities of green. It is a revitalizing and rejuvenating color that also represents open communication and clarity of thought. For Tibetan monks, teal is symbolic of the infinity of the sea and sky, while it is the color of truth and faith for Egyptians. Teal encourages objective, analytical and perhaps deep thinking. It can promote introversion, reserved character traits, repression of emotions and feelings of empathy. The color can also discourage erratic and spontaneous behaviors. Like other cool colors, teal can have a calming or sedating influence.

  1. I love these covers! I especially like the covers of The Next Great Jane and Shouting at the Rain. I also like the cover of Finally Something Mysterious—I thought, “Those yellow flowers are pretty,” and then I zoomed in and realized they are not flowers at all! Thanks for the great post!
