Top Ten Tuesday: Books with Colorful Titles

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is a pretty simple one: books with colors in their titles. At a first glance I expected this list to be a bit challenging to fill, but I was surprised to find that there are actually many more books with colors in their titles than I thought. This list ended up being a nice mix of books–I’ve linked my reviews where applicable.

1. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

2. The Color Purple by Alice Walker

3. A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

4. White Teeth by Zadie Smith

5. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

6. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

7. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

8. Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

9. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

10. The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti

What books have you read that have a color in the title? What are your thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. So many good ones on your list! I just finished The Color Purple for The Reading Rush. I was about 25% in when I realized I’d read it before–just pre-Goodreads. πŸ˜‰ I kept reading since it’s always worth a reread. I actually really liked The Scarlet Letter, and The Raven Cycle is one of my all-time favorite series. ❀

    1. Thank you! I agree, I definitely want to reread The Color Purple at some point in the future–I feel like it’s one of those books that you can always take something new away each time you read it.

  2. I just read Anne of Green Gables for the first time this year and loved it – I should really continue with the series. There was some historic racism in it but the character of Anne was unfailingly positive (something we can all use more of right now right?) And The Color Purple is a favorite of mine.

    Great list!
