Six for Sunday: Sunshine!

Six for Sunday: Books with Sunshine on the Cover

S4S sunshine

This was a tricky prompt, as always recently! I always find it difficult to think of books with specific types of cover, but I do think that this prompt is perfect for today as the sun has finally broken through the clouds and we have been having such lovely weather that it truly (finally!) feels like summer.

The Alchemist by Paul Coelho

I read this years ago and remember very little about it, but I feel like I should really read it again to see what I get out of it as an older reader.

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

Contemporary isn’t really my ‘thing’ so I thought that this was okay, but not as great as many others.

Singing to the Sun by Vivian French and Jackie Morris

According to my Goodreads I haven’t read this, but I have and it is a stunning fairytale with an unexpected ending and, of course, sumptuous illustrations.

Warrior Boy by Virginia Clay

The author visited our school earlier this year and was lovely so I really need to read this, but I am ashamed to admit that I have yet to get around to it.

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This is another which I have had recommended to me by a number of people, but have yet to read it.

The Girl Who Came Out of the Woods by Emily Barr

This sounds fascinating so I will probably get around to reading it at some point!


What did you think of my choices?

Do you have any books with sunshine on the cover?

    1. I will have to track down my copy and read it – it must be around 14 or 15 years ago that I read it first!

    1. Thank you! I did read the first few chapters when the author was visiting our school, then had my copy borrowed by a Year 6 and have never gotten around to finishing it. Need to read it soon!
