Top Ten Tuesday ~ Top Ten Books with Colours In the Titles

"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".

It is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.

  1. Beautiful. Now I'm curious about how many different colors are in the titles of books I've read.

    1. I have read many more, just had to choose which one of the different books I'd list. I took my favourites, of course.

      Thanks for your visit. Will see what you came up with.

  2. The Color Purple was on my list, too!

    My TTT .

    1. One of the first books one would think of, I believe, since it has to word "color" in the title.

      Thanks for your visit and for leaving your link. See you on your page.

  3. I read The Color Purple back in the 1980s and enjoyed it!

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week : https://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2020/08/top-ten-tuesday-books-with-colors-in.html

    1. It's a great story. And even the movie was brilliant. I have read more stories by Walker, Alice afterwards, she is just a wonderful writer.

      Thanks for your visit and your link. SEe you on your page.

    1. Thanks, Emma. I know how it is, we all have limited time. But you are spending it very wisely. You are publishing so many great things. Wihtout you, I would have never found the Classics Spin, for example.

      Thanks for your visit.

  5. A very colourful list this week! I would like to read "Black Girl/White Girl" by Joyce Carol Oates. It seems like an interesting story.

    Here's my TTT list this week.

    1. Very colourful indeed. And I was happy I could include a book by one of my favourite authors, JCO. Her stories are all brilliant. I can recommend "Black Girl/White Girl", especially in times like this. Happy Reading!

      And thanks for your link. See you soon.

  6. Loved The Big Green Tent. I understand she has a new one coming soon.

    1. True, Jacob's Ladder, not yet translated. But she has written quite a few other books already, so I might delve into those in the meantime.

      Happy Reading and thanks for your visit.

  7. I've never seen The blue between sky and water. What a gorgeous title!

    Love your list, here's mine: I see your true colors

    1. Thanks, Elza, nice to see you again here.

      The Blue Between Sky and Water is not just a great title, it's also a great book. I have read two books by the author and they were both really great. She writes about Palestine.

      Thanks for your visit and thansk for leaving your list. Will go over there now.

  8. Thank you, Anna. And thanks for le for leaving your link. I'm looking forward to seeing your link.

    Thank you for the visit.

  9. I love how you basically did the rainbow here! So cool and great titles.

    1. Thanks, I love colours and this is what came to my mind right away. Thanks for your visit and your lovely comment.
