We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors. Apparently these crayons have crazy names haha. I love the creativity of this prompt but I had to look up the names of those colors. Some sound completely normal to me to be honest but I do get the gist of it! Let’s take a look at the books I came up with.
1. Caraval – Stephanie Garber
Doesn’t this sound like a type of red crayon? Or maybe a gold one, or a red one with gold haha. Maybe it’s the circus vibes but I think this fits really well!
2. New Moon – Stephanie Meyer
What kind of colour would this even be? Extremely pale yellow?
3. Watersnakes – Tony Sandoval
I could totally see a watery but dark green for this one. Maybe even a brownish green, does that exist?
4. 172 Hours on the Moon – Johan Harstad
Haha, another moon one and I guess another pale yellow? But maybe a darker one than the new moon one? Let me know what you think!
5. Death Cloud – Andrew Lane
A very very dark blue, almost black. But with some red undertones if possible? I guess that would maybe make it more of a very dark purple.
6. Picture Perfect – Holly Smale
I feel like this definitely sounds like a color but I can’t really figure out which one that would be. Either something silver-y, because there should be a silver lining. Or something pink because I like that color haha.
7. In the Afterlight – Alexandra Bracken
I can see a very pretty orange, like a sunset, for this one. It’s probably the one I feel the strongest about haha.
8. The Heart of Betrayal – Mary E. Pearson
At this point I feel like I picked some depressing names haha. And this is also another dark reddish purple one.
9. Frost Like Night – Sara Raasch
Definitely blue, like a frozen lake. But on a sunny day. I have this very clear in my mind, even the specific lake haha.
10. Mooncakes – Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu
And I guess I had to end with another moon related one haha. For this one I picture a little bit of a darker yellow than for the other ones. I guess you could call it cake-yellow if that makes sense?
