Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.
Today’s topic is book titles that sound like they could be Crayola crayon colors. Crayola crayon color names have only gotten zanier over the years, but there are also some book titles that could work as crayon colors, even if the only people who would really understand would be my fellow bookworms.
- Iron Gold by Pierce Brown — clearly this one would be a silvery-gold color.
- Jade City by Fonda Lee — for this, I picture a rich, jade green crayon.
- Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse — this would have to be a black with gold flecks, which is in line with those newer crayons they have now (the kind I didn’t have as a kid).
- The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi — I kind of picture a sparkly silver color for this.
- The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang — clearly this would be a bright red.
- A Violet Fire by Kelsey Quick — I can’t help but think of a reddish-purple for this one.
- The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw — this would have to be the darkest shade of blue, like the deep sea.
- Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas — a very deep gray, almost black would be perfect for this.
- Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore — I think the name speaks for itself, but clearly it would have to be a very rich, dark red color.
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer — a flat, warm gray color, kind of like what you’d see in ashes.
What do you think of these?
