Top Ten Tuesday - I see your True Colors

Tuesday, August 4, 2020


Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Today's prompt is going to be a colorful one. Jana over at That Arsty Reader Girl  requested that we list 10 books with colors in the title. Does that mean we are going to be able to see everyone's True Colors? Yea! I do hope that most of you are a bit more colorful than me. Yes, a fluffy white kitten is the most adorable thing on earth, but you do know that white is actually a non-color?

Luckily, my Mommy is a very colorful person. You should see our house. Auntie Elaine calls it a friendly, coloring book. Unfortunately, she is also a teacher. So yes, she is going to handle this post as a lesson on the color wheel. 

Good luck with that. I'm just going to curl up here and take a nap while she puts on her teacher's voice.

Okay, Class! Did you know, all colors are nothing but a mixture of primary colors? There are 3 primary colors: 

Half of a YELLOW Sun - Chimamanda Ngosi Adichie Read on Goodreads
The hunt for RED October - Tom Clancy Read on Goodreads
Two little girls in BLUE - Mary Higgins Clark Read on Goodreads


Next we have the secondary colors. Those are the colors you get when you mix two primary colors together. For example, if you mix red and blue together, you will get: 

The color PURPLE - Alice Walker Read on Goodreads  And if you mix yellow and blue:
Ann of GREEN Gables - L.M. Montgomery Read on Goodreads And red and yellow:
A clockwork ORANGE - Anthony Burgess Read on Goodreads


If you start mixing primary and secondary colors together in different shades, you can get just about any color you can imagine. But first, you still need the two non-colors. The first one is the complete absence of color and the second is the presence of all colors simultaneously: 

BLACK Rose - Nora Roberts Read on Goodreads
Lethal WHITE -Robert Galbraith  Read on Goodreads   
If you mix white and pink, you will get a combination of Elza's favorite color: 
The PINK suit - Nicole Mary Kelby Read on Goodreads 
Our last color for today's class, is a color you will get when you mix just about everything together, you are bound to end up with a shade of:
The man in the BROWN suit - Agatha Christie Read on Goodreads


Good grief! Is that the bell? Okay class, just before you go, you've got some homework. Please list a couple of books, let's make it 10, of books with color in the title and share it with everyone. Remember to add your linky at Jana's too.

Class dismissed! 

*******

See what I need to sit up with most days? But I still love my Mommy and our colorful books dearly.

Happy TTT!

Lots of love,

Elza

  3. I glad you like Tom Clancy. I completely forgot about A Clockwork Orange, and I couldn't think of a title with orange in it. https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2020/08/ttt-080420.html

  11. What a fun post! I just read The Color Purple a few weeks ago for a readathon prompt. When I was about 25% in, I realized I'd read it before--just pre-Goodreads. I went ahead and reread it since it's such a good one. :)

  12. Hi Dedra! I should really get to reading it. I know it's one of those "You have to read it" books.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  13. The Color Purple was on my list, too. And, yes, you all really should read it when you have the time. It's amazing (especially the ending).

  17. Black and white probably aren't technically colors, but those are the "colors" that came up most on my TBR lists. I guess I'm just not a very colorful reader!

    Happy TTT!

  20. I like how you did this! A Clockwork Orange has such a simple yet distinctive cover, and Anne of green gables is nice. And Christie!!!

We love hearing from you and if you talk to me, I'll purr back as soon as possible. Sometimes I take a cat nap and it might take a couple of hours or days, but never fear - the cat always comes back.
