Birthstone Book Covers: May 2023 Edition!

Hello friends, I’m back today with another month’s edition for The Birthstone Book Covers series created by one of my favourites, Leslie. 💜 She began this at the start of 2022 and it was born out of her curiosity about birthstone colours. It’s fun to show different book covers/titles corresponding to that month’s birthstone. 🙂

The Rules

  • Mention the creator (Leslie @ Books Are The New Black ) and link back to me so I can see your post!
  • Pick 5+ book covers that match the current month’s Birthstone.
  • HAVE FUN!
  • Nominate people if you want!

May’s birthstone is the Emerald. It’s a wonderfully rich colour and I wasn’t sure whether I could find a stack of books off my physical shelf that fit this colour but… I did! 😃

May is also my birthday month so emerald is my birthstone… If only it was also my favourite colour, haha.

My emerald stack featuring Sir Bobbington the Giant Brown Bear

The Kingdom of Copper by S. A. Chakraborty
When Women Were Dragons by Kelly Barnhill
We All Fall Down by Rose Szabo
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
Jade City by Fonda Lee
To Best the Boys by Mary Christine Weber
Tress of the Emerald Sea by Brandon Sanderson

And that’s it for the May emerald. I’m really enjoying trying to find spines that match the month’s birthstone for this monthly meme! Is this colour a popular one on your shelves?
