Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors (Take a moment and Google some of the crazy Crayola crayon colors that exist. Can you think of any book titles that sound like they could also be a crayon color? It might be fun to include a description of the kind of color you’re picturing.)
This was a fun topic for me because I haven’t paid attention to crayons in years so it was fun to actually Google crayons and see what kind of color names are out there these days. Below is what I came up with once I started scouring my shelves and my TBR to see what might make a good crayon color name.

Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayon Colors
1. LEAVES OF GRASS by Walt Whitman – This one is probably pretty self explanatory, but I could see this being used on for a green crayon.
2. VIOLET GRENADE by Victoria Scott – I’m envisioning this as a bright, vibrant purple because of the grenade.
3. I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN by Jandy Nelson – Yellow of course. 🙂
4. THE STARLESS SEA by Erin Morganstern – Something really dark, like a midnight blue or even black.
5. DARLING ROSE GOLD by Stephanie Wrobel – I guess this one is pretty self explanatory. I’m picturing the rose gold iPhone, lol.
6. SKY WITHOUT STARS by Jessica Brody and Joann Rendell – Like The Starless Sea, I’m envisioning this as either a deep blue or black.
7. CONCRETE ROSE by Angie Thomas – In my mind, this would be hot pink.
8. FLAME IN THE MIST by Renee Ahdieh – This would be orange, of course, for the flame.
9. ONE DAY IN DECEMBER by Josie Silver – I’m picturing this as a pale gray or even silver, some combination of snow and silvery holiday decorations.
10. AURORA BURNING by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman – Back in my day, we had a bunch of random orange-ish colors that were called things like Red-Orange, Orange-Red, and when Crayola wanted to be really creative, Burnt Sienna. I’m picturing those names trashed in favor of Aurora Burning.
