This is another from My Readers Block, who runs a number of very interesting challenges.  This one only requires nine entries, and I intend to pick them off as I go along with other challenges – but there’s always one pesky one near the end you have to hunt for!  I did this in 2017, and I’m doing it again in 2019, leaving the book covers at the bottom of the page each year.

The Color Coded Challenge

The categories are pretty open–the colour may either be named in the title or it may appear as the dominant colour for the cover of the book. For “implies color” the image implying color should dominate the cover–for instance a large rainbow, a field of flowers, or the image of a painter.

Here are the rules:

*Read nine books in the following categories.

  1. A book with “Blue” or any shade of Blue (Turquoise, Aquamarine, Navy, etc) in the title/on the cover.
  2. A book with “Red” or any shade of Red (Scarlet, Crimson, Burgundy, etc) in the title/on the cover.
  3. A book with “Yellow” or any shade of Yellow (Gold, Lemon, Maize, etc.)in the title/on the cover.
  4. A book with “Green” or any shade of Green (Emerald, Lime, Jade, etc) in the title/on the cover.
  5. A book with “Brown” or any shade of Brown (Tan, Chocolate, Beige, etc)in the title/on the cover.
  6. A book with “Black” or any shade of Black (Jet, Ebony, Charcoal, etc) in the title/on the cover.
  7. A book with “White” or any shade of White (Ivory, Eggshell, Cream, etc)in the title/on the cover.
  8. A book with any other color in the title/on the cover (Purple, Orange, Silver, Pink, Magneta, etc.).
  9. A book with a word that implies color (Rainbow, Polka-dot, Plaid, Paisley, Stripe, etc.).

* Any book read from January 1 through December 31 will count,
