Pantone’s Color of the Year in Books: Very Peri Reads You Can Fill Your Shelves With

A reading goal is not complete without finishing a book that matches the Pantone Color of the Year. Luckily, one of the prompts in our Read More 2022 Challenge includes reading a book that has a Very Peri cover.

Very Peri, “a dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone,” communicates a readiness for the future. Interestingly, the Pantone Color Institute decided to create an entirely new color to “reflect the global innovation and transformation taking place” in our society today. It also aims to inspire personal creativity and inventiveness–encouraging individuals to be their truest selves, especially in the radically changed world.

Grab one of these Very Peri-inspired books and tick off a goal in the #ReadMore2022 Challenge. Know more about the Read More 2022 Challenge and its prompts on our socials

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is a thrilling classic that is undoubtedly timeless. Victor Frankenstein's creature is stitched together from the limbs of the dead, taken from 'the dissecting room and the slaughter-house'. The result is a grotesque being, who, rejected by his maker and starved of human companionship, sets out on a journey to seek his revenge.

The Lying Life of Adults by Elena Ferrante

Giovanna’s pretty face is changing and questions begin to linger on her mind: Is she turning into her Aunt Vittoria, a woman she hardly knows but whom her mother and father clearly despise? Surely there is a mirror somewhere in which she can see herself as she truly is. Gianna now moves from one to the other in search of the truth, but neither city seems to offer answers or escape.

Named one of 2016’s most influential people by TIME Magazine, Elena Ferrante has become one of the world’s most read and beloved writers. In The Lying Life of Adults, readers will discover another gripping, highly addictive, and totally unforgettable Neapolitan story.

Stone Mattress by Margaret Atwood

A collection of highly imaginative short pieces that speak to our times with deadly accuracy: a recently widowed fantasy writer is guided through a stormy winter evening by the voice of her late husband, a woman born with a genetic abnormality is mistaken for a vampire, and a crime committed long ago is revenged in the Arctic via a 1.9 billion-year-old stromatolite. In these nine tales, Margaret Atwood ventures into the shadowland earlier explored by fabulists and concoctors of dark yarns such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Daphne du Maurier and Arthur Conan Doyle.

In Stone Mattress, Margaret Atwood is at the top of her darkly humorous and seriously playful game.

Almond by Won-pyung Sohn

Yunjae was born with a brain condition called Alexithymia that makes it hard for him to feel emotions like fear or anger. He does not have friends—the two almond-shaped neurons located deep in his brain have seen to that—but his devoted mother and grandmother provide him with a safe and content life. Then on Christmas Eve—Yunjae’s 16th birthday—everything changes. A shocking act of random violence shatters his world, leaving him alone and on his own. Struggling to cope with his loss, Yunjae retreats into silent isolation, until troubled teenager Gon arrives at his school, and they develop a surprising bond. 

Written in simple and crisp prose, Almond is a slim novel that is primarily concerned with empathy and human connection—finding meaning on what it means to truly feel.
