TTT: Books with Colors In the Titles

(I know I didn’t post in a month and I’m sorry but backstreet’s back alright)

Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl is a weekly meme born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together

1) The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune 

The House in the Cerulean Sea

I read this for Rainbow Readathon (which I didn’t wrap-up yet *guilt noises*) and my heart is now the property of 6 kids and I’m very okay with that.

2) The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

The Priory of the Orange Tree

This book has dragons and magic trees….that’s all the marketing it needed for me to read it. Fun fact: After intense research (read: googling for 10 seconds) I found out that the fruit did in fact come before the color. Cool.

3) Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Red, White & Royal Blue

(lowkey feel like I deserve bonus points because it has 3 colors but ok) uhhhhhhh I didn’t love this book plsdonthurtme, it’s probably a case of “it’s me, not you” but I had super high exceptions after reading all these rave reviews and was a bit disappointed (rtc, it was still good tho oh god why does this feel like a breakup)

4) The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1)

I re-read this book after remembering it as this wholesome story about a girl and her magic compass, magic pokemon equivalent and magic polar bear AND LOL NO IT HELLA DARK. Also, I’m very thankful I didn’t read this edition as a child because the cover is actual nightmare fuel. (edit: I spent too long debating if this counts because it’s also called Northern Lights and then realized I am an idiot because the third book is called The Amber Spyglass)

5) The Black Witch by Laurie Forest 

The Black Witch (The Black Witch Chronicles, #1)

I thought I liked this book when I initially read it but I think I was disillusioned by how much I hated the mc for the entire first half. But do read this book for special (and beautiful) mc who doesn’t think she’s special (and beautiful) ft. a very (like VERY) simplistic approach to race and oppression. Also love triangles.

6) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard 

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)

Speaking of special snowflake mc and love triangles, we have red queen yayyy.

7) Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables, #1)

I talk about this book too many times.

8) Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)

I Read Too Many Retellings, It’s A Real Problem Part 1

9) Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge 

Crimson Bound

I Read Too Many Retellings, It’s A Real Problem Part 2

10) The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan 

The Astonishing Color of After

This might look like cheating (because it totally is) but I can’t restraint my inner dad (Hi, I’m a 20 year old ladyyyyy and I have a basketball game tomorrowwww). Dad jokes are the pinnacle of comedy.
