Top Ten Tuesday: Titles as Crayon Colors

Hi and welcome to the reading world!

For today’s Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, we’re sharing 10 titles that could make good crayon colors! Apparently crayon brands have some fun and interesting color titles nowadays, so I’m sharing 10 picks off of my TBR that sound like fun color names!

Hall of Smoke

53759101
Hall of Smoke by H. M. Long

I’m thinking very smokey deep grey vibes for this one!

Dreamer’s Pool

17305016
Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier

Something of a light blue with grey undertones, maybe? (Can you tell I like grey?)

Red Seas Under Red Skies

1473780
Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
(This is #2 in the series!)

Ok so I might be going a little punny with this one… but what about a light coral red? Get it? Red seas?

Red Rising

15839976
Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I’m thinking bright bold crimson red, like my favorite lipsticks.

Winter’s Orbit

Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell

For this one, I’m picturing a very light icy blue.

The Glittering Hour

43263378
The Glittering Hour by Iona Grey

Is metallic gold a crayon color? Because… metallic gold.

Jade City

43587154. sy475
Jade City by Fonda Lee

I feel like jade green is the only answer here, especially given the little bit I’ve read of this story so far (and loved!)

The Priory of the Orange Tree

40275288. sy475
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

The orange of this cover fits really well to me, almost giving me a summer, sitting under the orange tree mood.

Empire of Gold

52166786
The Empire of Gold by S. A. Chakraborty
(This is #3 in the series!)

…I already used metallic gold once didn’t I?

The House in the Cerulean Sea

45047384. sy475
The House in the Cerulean Sea by T. J. Klune

Bright, turquoise, happy blue! This book still warms my heart.

The Shadowed Sun

11774295
The Shadowed Sun by N. K. Jemisin
(This is #2 in the series!)

I absolutely love the cover of this book! Maybe the crayon would be a dark goldenrod, or one of the colors on this book? What do you think?

So there are my 10 picks- what are yours? Do you think I got the hypothetical color descriptions right?

Thank you for stopping by!
