This is a really great book for beginners and more advanced crocheters alike. I have been crocheting for many, many years & teach crochet professionally and this is the book that I most often refer to.
Not only is it great if you want to make blocks for an afghan, blanket or cushion, but it's a great source of inspiration, with it's colour combination and ideas for combining the different squares and patterns. It is also a good resource for MANY different stitch patterns that you can not only use in blocks, but for many other things as they can be simply adapted :-)
This is the book I recommend to all my crochet students :-)

Looking for something a little more challenging, but not necessarily harder?

This book contains all the stitch descriptions you'll need, along with colour tips, and texture mix

Very intuitive layout showing at a glance weather a block is worked in rows or rounds, skill level, colour pallet and suggested complimentary block patterns.

Copy a throw right out of the book, or use the suggestions as inspiration to create your own unique piece.
