Well, One Does Want a Hint of Color: Ten Colorful Titles

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is devoted to books with colors in their titles. As someone who’s always on the lookout for bright, bold covers, I was excited to use that same scrutiny on the titles. So when I sat down to compile this post I—well, I couldn’t think of a single book. It was as though I had never heard of words like red, blue, or green before. Fortunately, there are plenty of book lovers who have come before me with list after list of colorful book titles. And after seeing a few, my brain kicked into gear, and I’m excited to share with you some of my favorites. Because after all, as in life, one does want a hint of color in their reading.

  1. Great list! I also definitely didn’t expect it’d be so difficult to put a list together for this week–I was so wrong 😂 I had the Golden Compass on my list as well. Such a great read! Half of a Yellow Sun is a really popular one for today and it makes me want to quickly bump it up my TBR already!
