Recommend A... Book With A Green Cover

'Recommend A... ' is the awesome new feature thought up by the amazing Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit. Each week there will be a different, creative prompt for us to recommend books that we sometimes maybe forget how much we love, giving us the chance to share book recommendations of books that might not get recommended as much as they deserve.

Heya there, guys! How are you doing? I thought I'd take a quick breather (a VERY QUICK breather because, considering that I have a geography exam tomorrow and I have revised about two pages of Geography, I have A LOT of revision to do! I know, I know, the whole reason I was taking a break from blogging was so I could concentrate on revision properly, and I have been, promise! Only I've kind of had to revise loads for each exam the night before I actually take it, and well, I don't particularly like Geography so I could never really find the motivation to revise for it. I find it hard enough to find any motivation to revise at all as it is! ANYWAY, back to the subject...)

...Which is this week's 'Recommend A...' post. Yes, I know, these are meant to be posted on Mondays but I didn't have time on Monday so Wednesday will have to suffice. Better late than never, right?

This week's prompt is:

Recommend A...Book with a Green Cover

I had to rack my brains to think of a book with a green cover and the only one I could come up with is one that I read AGES ago. So long ago that I can hardly remember what happens in it, although what I do remember is that I really enjoyed it. My book recommendation is:

Frozen In Time by Ali Sparkes 

"Ben and Rachel Corder are sure they're in for the longest, dullest summer ever, until they discover an underground vault at the bottom of their garden with an amazing secret inside - two children from the 1950s who have been asleep for decades.

But waking up Freddy and Polly Emerson means unearthing the secrets that were buried with them. Why would their father leave them frozen? How is cryonic suspension even possible? Why doesn't the world know about the process fifty years later? How will the Emersons ever fit into the 21st century world of cell phones and microwave dinners? And why does it feel like they're all suddenly being followed?

Winner of Blue Peter's Book That I Couldn't Put Down and Book of the Year Award 2010

 Can you think of any books with green covers that are worth recommending? Let me know in the comments section! :) 


  1. Ugh...sorry bout the exams! I know how big a pain in the butt they can be :P Well I went through my "read" pile and picked a few I liked with green covers (well, green on them :P and it also depends on which cover you look at lol):
    Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
    The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
    Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
    The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
    Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith
    The Maze Runner by James Dashner
    Matched by Ally Condi
    Nobody's Princess by Esther Friesner

    These are all the ones with green on the covers that I've read. Idk if you've read any of them but definitely check them out! I can't recommend Scarlet, Demon King and Poison Study enough!!

    All the best ♥

  2. Oh interesting! I have always wanted to find a secret passage. What a cool synopsis!

  3. I haven't read Frozen in Time but it sounds absolutely awesome! I have to check it out. I don't have any green cover books that I've liked, either, except the Iron King. That is the first one I can think of with a green cover that was just AWESOME! :)

    Thanks for commenting on my Gush and Gripe post and for the compliments about my ranting! ;)

  4. This sounds pretty interesting, will check it out some time! I can't really think of a good book with a green cover *slowly scans bookshelf for a green book* Nope, can't even find one there!

    Good luck on your exams Catherine! I had no motivation to revise either. Physics or read everyone's blogs...Hmm, I think I know which one I'd go with :P

    Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog and I can't wait for your return either xxx

  5. Hi Catherine! What an awesome feature, although I don't think I have a single book with a green cover. . . Still, I'll be looking out for it more from now on! Thanks for sharing. And good luck with all exams! :) xxx
