A book with a green cover

Some of the most treasured books on my bookshelves are The Hobbit Chronicles. Unfortunately I don’t have the last two books, but I’m hoping my family will take a look at my Amazon wishlist for my birthday in October. 😉

Green wasn’t my favorite color, but since I chose alicegreenlef as my Tolkien themed nickname back in 2013, I started loving this color more and more (I even dress almost all my characters in green when I play The Lord of the Rings Online), so I was happy to realize that my favorite chronicle book had a green cover.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – Chronicles IV: Cloaks & Daggers is all about weapons, costumes and armours created for The Hobbit trilogy. When it comes to Weta Workshop you can be sure every single object will be a masterpiece, this is why I love this book so much. Even if “I’m [in fact ]a Hobbit in all but size”, Elves are still my not so secret favorites and the costumes + weapons they designed for Tauriel are all I always wanted to see in The Lord of the Rings movies when I pictures a badass female Elf fighting along Legolas and friends in my mind. Sure, Galadriel’s wardrobe is breathtaking, but I’m more a Woodland kind of girl, so I’m totally in love with Tauriel’s style.

What’s your favorite book with a green cover?
