Books as Crayola Crayons
Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
The prompt for this week is to think of book titles that could be crazy Crayola crayon colors. They have so many weird ones. I thought the best approach would be to look on my Goodreads shelves for existing colors in book titles and go from there. When I ran out and didn’t want to repeat too much, I thought of other color-like words (moonlight, sunshine, etc.) and filled in some gaps! All of the colors below next to the colors were pulled directly from the book covers. (If you enjoy things like this, check out my favorite feature I need to resurrect – Cover Colors!)
Words in Deep Blue: a deeper, not yet navy, shade of blue
Serious Moonlight: light yellow shade of moonlight
Once Upon a Wine: a burgundy shade like red wine
Blackberry Summer: black like the berries
Across the Green Grass Fields: grassy green fields
Little White Lies: “dark white” aka lighter gray
Orange is the New Black: a dark, deep orange
Hello, Sunshine: bright, vibrant yellow shade
Nantucket Blue: an ocean-esque blue color
Nantucket Red: dark red sky for sailor’s delight
Nantucket Red and Nantucket Blue would be perfect crayon colors! They sound like already-existing paint colors.
I love these!! I like how you added the shade of color you thought the title represented. ?
Thank you 🙂
