The Colorful Reading Challenge (I know! another one)

Adding another challenge is probably not wise, but this challenge is so whimsical in spirit, I can’t resist.  Besides, most of these books were already on my sizeable to-be-read pile, so this is just a creative way of choosing which ones from that list will be read in the near future.

Name: The Colorful Reading Challenge

Host: Lost in Books

Challenge Post:

Deadline: December 31, 2010

Level: All participants read 9 books, with different colors in their titles.

Edit: Certain colors were required but now it’s opened up to reader’s choice for all colors.

1. Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs [review]

2. Blood Meridian: Or the Evening Redness in the West by Cormac McCarthy – I’ve been meaning to read another book of his since I liked The Road.

3. The Veil of Gold by Kim Wilkins [review]

4. The White Darkness by Geraldine McCaughrean [review]

5. The Grail-Bird: Hot on the Trail of the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker by Tim Gallagher [review]

6. The Book of the Dun Cow by Walter Wangerin, Jr. (also reading for the Flashback Challenge).  Dun is a brownish-grey according to wikipedia.

7. Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

    Purple Hibiscus is SOOOOO good. 😉 I’m tempted by this one as well, lol. There’s also a reading rainbow challenge that sounds like fun.

  2. Hey Christy! I am excited you are joining in the challenge! I wanted to let you know I changed the rules up a bit. Now you can choose all 9 colors, as long as each book has a different color. I also put up a post with ideas for books in a variety of colors if you need any help thinking up a book.

  3. Eva – I’ve had Purple Hibiscus on my to-read list for ages, since before I kept a list on goodreads. Glad to hear it’s good. I haven’t seen the reading rainbow challenge around though I’m sure it will pop up on one of the many blogs I’m now subscribed to. 🙂

    Rebecca – thanks for the update on the challenge and for the helpful list of books by color!

    All right – here’s my suggestion for you for one of the other two books: Sister Pelagia and the Black Monk by Boris Akunin (by all means his best of the Sister Pelagia trilogy). Just in case you need another choice.
