Wednesday’s Word = GREEN #WednesdaysWord #booklovers

Most readers will acknowledge that some words reappear time and time again in titles. Often these words are associated with a particular genre. Case in point: “The girl on the train” and “Gone girl” spawned countless thriller titles with the word ‘girl’ in the title.

My pick for Wednesday’s Word this week is a ‘no-brainer’. Since it is St. Patrick’s Day, how could I not pick the word ‘GREEN‘? In this post I’ve selected just a few of the novels with the word ‘green‘ in the title as a way of sharing my book love.

These titles cover a broad range of  genres – with literary fiction, mystery, historical fiction, thriller to name but a few.

Just click on the cover to read the book’s synopsis from Goodreads.

You might just find your next favorite book!

  2. The Last Green Valley has a super appealing cover. You just want to run right into it.

    I have read How Green was My Valley (so good!), and I remember a crime thriller that didn’t have green in the title, but featured a killer with a thing for women in green clothing (yikes!).

  3. Does a cover tempt me? Well, maybe not to read, but I absolutely LOVE the cover of These High, Green Hills.

    Have I absolutely loved one that I’ve read? How Green was My Valley is close to my heart. The movie was my dad’s favourite; my brother gave his first-born the name Bronwyn as a middle name.

    I also thought Eliot Ackerman’s Green on Blue was brilliant (despite the fact that there is no green on the cover).

    Of course, I’ve read Anne of Green Gables (and who wouldn’t take the ferry?) and Fried Green Tomatoes; and have The Green Road on my TBR, along with Green Grass, Running Water which I am almost ashamed to say that I have not yet read. Did you get a chance to get into Maggie’s Green Grass, Running Water cafe in Tatamagouche a few years ago?

    What a great cross-section of genres this week!

    Great list Lynne, I didn’t think there would be many, but I guess there are more than I thought. I have read Anne of Green Gables, Green Grass, Running Water, and Fried Green Tomatoes, but that’s it. I did enjoy them all. Funny you have two with Green Dress in the title and I have one that I am reading this week called The Green Dress by Liz Tolsma. Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day.

  6. A couple of the books don’t use the color green on the covers. Kind of surprising.

    On a quest to read lots of Aussie fiction so I will look out for The Woman in The Green Dress. Have read Anne of Green Gables (of course) How Green Was My Valley (years ago – my mum’s copy) & Fried Green Tomatoes – loved it. That’s it!
