Ten Book Titles that sound like Crayola Crayon Colors

Tuesday, April 13, 2021

What a beautiful Crayola Crayon day it is here in South Africa. It's a beautiful, sunny autumn day and I sommer feel like like taking out my coloring book and get coloring. Today's Top Ten Tuesday post is a perfect fit for such a bright and burst of colors day: Ten Book Titles that sound like Crayola Crayon Colors

Let's see what colors we would like to color in with today:

1. Guardian Red, Guardian Blue, Guardian Yellow - Inspired by The Guardians by John Grisham
2. Fable (a mossy brown color) - Inspired by Fable by Adrienne Young
3. Night Tiger (a dark burned orange color) - Inspired by The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo
4. Faithful (a heavenly blue) - Inspired by Faithful by Alice Hoffman
5. Holidate Green, Holidate Red, Holidate Silver - Inspired by Holidate by Monica Murphy


6. Hallowe'en Party (a pumpkin orange) - Inspired by Hallowe'en Party by Agatha Christie
7. Olive Kitteridge (an olive green) - Inspired by Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
8. Miss Benson's Beetle (gold) - Inspired by Miss Benson's Beetle by Rachel Joyce
9. BearTown (grisly bear brown) - Inspired by Beartown by Fredrik Backman
10. City of Girls (the pinkest pink you can get) - Inspired by City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

And that's our box of lovely crayons. Can't wait to start coloring in!


Lots of Love,,

  3. Wow, you've actually managed to link crayons with books -- and in way that really makes sense! Amazing! I especially liked your connection between Olive Kitteridge and olive green, and Halloween Party / pumpkin orange. Great post. 😎

  9. This is awesome. I love Fable and Holidate Green as well. I'm a sucker for green anyways.

    I feel like Elza and Stinkie might have fun w/ the crayons...

    1. Hi Greg! Stinkie was very naughty when he was kitten and used to always play with my crayons and arty farty stuff. Pencils were his favorite. Elza was actually never naughty in that way. But she is terribly naughty in soooo many other ways where Stinkie is not.

      Glad you enjoyed it Greg!

  10. I love how you integreated the colours into the titles. I've done something like that before but didn't think about it this time. LOL

    Such a creative post. Love it.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

    2. Same here, I always love the challenges, sometimes I have to twist it a little but mostly I really enjoy them. And I always enjoy other posts, there are so many books to discover.

  11. I love that you changed the font colors for your titles. I didn't even think of that!

    I love your choices, especially City of Girls. Of course that would be the pinkest pink!

    1. Hi Jen! There were a lot of very creative people on the TTT prompt this week. I actually feel I could have been more creative!

      City of Girls will be the first color I grab to color in with.

      Thanks for visiting Jen.

  12. I think Guardian or Faithful would work for our Most Important Colors, which are, of course, red, yellow, and blue.

    Halloween Party is perfect for orange. Why did no one at Crayola think of that one?!

    1. Hi Debbie! That's exactly why I chose Guardian. All the primary colors. I thought it was very clever and you are the first one to pick it up! But you are ever so clever, so it figures.

      I also love Halloween party!!

  13. Great choices! I saw an Oprah show years ago in which one of her guests' job was to name lipstick colors. I found it fascinating.

    1. Imagine that! And yes, some lipsticks have weird and wonderful names. I personally love my Caribbean Kiss lipstick! Think it's by Clinique.

  14. I love the idea of Fable being a color - but I associate it being more of a scarlet or a sea. :)

    1. Hi Lauren! I haven't read it yet, so maybe if I read it, I will change the color. A A Fable just sounds like something from the woods for me. Moss greens, browns, yellows.

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.
