#TopTenTuesday: Books with Colours in the Title

So, we’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is: books with colours in the title.

I thought this prompt would be super easy but it turns out I was very wrong 😅 I wrote it while staring at the books on my shelf and I couldn’t see one read title that had a colour in it, and only one book title immediately came to mind for the prompt. Even digging deeper into my Goodreads read list didn’t give me as many results as I’d hoped to find! So to make it easier for myself, I’m going to split this list into read and to be read books with colours in the title because it turns out I’ve got a lot more on my ‘to-be-read’ list (*surprise surprise*) 😂


Words in Deep Blue – absolutely crushed my feels & one of my 2020 faves so far!
Spinning Silver – loved Novik’s magical writing and this unique retelling
Scarlet – the second book in one of my all favourite YA SFF fairytale retellings 😍
The Golden Compass – a dark and fantastical adventure full of magic and wonder that i really enjoyed!
Red Queen – this first book was a total winner for me, but sadly the sequels were not!


Jade City – definitely finishing it this year!
Gods of Jade and Shadow – hoping to read it this year coz i’ve only heard amazing things!
The Black Kids – just started this last night. it’s giving me a whole mix of feels…
The City of Brass – shame on me that this is still on my TBR pile! i need to get on it asap!
The Green Mile – the movie wrecked me but have always wanted to read the book too!

What are some of your favourite reads that have colours in the title? Any of these your favourites or also on your TBR?

    • Hahaha oh no! I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t like it 😢 But that’s okay, we can’t all like the same books all the time! I can definitely see why some people wouldn’t like it though–for me some of the characters made it frustrating at times, but I found myself so emotionally connected by the end. I was all up in the feels 😝


    • Thank you! I started reading it when I was in a bit of a slump so I put it aside but from what I’ve seen so far it’s really well written and the world building is amazing. I’m looking forward to finishing it 🙂


    • The Lunar Chronicles is SO good! I really want to get my hands on the physical copies (with the new covers)! I’m putting The Black Kids on hold a bit because I just realised that I’m on two blog tours this weekend that I totally forgot about. That’s what I get for avoiding my email for… too long 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’ve heard good things about it though. Another important read with everything going on!

  1. Heh, that was precisely my reaction to this week’s prompt, too.

    The Green Mile was very thought provoking. Hope you like it.

    Thanks for stopping by my post earlier!

    • I usually try to do my TTTs with favourite reads but it was a lot harder to do that for this list (surprisingly) although as I was looking at other peoples’ lists I realised I had a lot more on my read list that I completely forgot! I still haven’t read the rest of the His Dark Materials series but I’m looking forward to it 🙂

  2. haha City of Brass is still on my TBR pile as well so we can be shameful together! I completely forgot about Gods of Jade and Shadow even though I’ve been wanting to read it for what feels like YEARS

    • Haha I sometimes feel like I’ve been wanting to read all the books on my TBR for years coz they’ve been on my shelves for so long 😂 I hope we both enjoy these reads whenever we get around to them 😉

    • Awesome! You’ll probably end up reading Jade City before me so keen to see what you think of it! I started it when I was in a bit of a slump at the start of the pandemic so I put it down. It’s very detailed but well written from what I can tell so far 🙂 Happy reading!

      • Welllll I did get it as an ebook and I’m terrible at keeping up with my ebooks… even more so than my physical books! It’s the “out of sight, out of mind” aspect. So, who knows when I’ll actually get to it! haha.


    • Thanks Becky! I’ve also heard a lot of amazing things about Jade City and I can see where it’s coming from (having started it a bit before). The world building is exquisite! Can’t wait to properly give it my attention and finish it lol
