This feature had us rummaging through our bookshelves and racking our brains. Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for keeping the tradition going!
The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang
So maybe the cover isn’t referring to a color, but this is an outstanding fantasy book by recent Hugo-winner R. F. Kuang.
White Teeth by Zadie Smith
A wonderfully told family drama (one of the few I’ve enjoyed) with a great ending, and a great title drop.
The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
By no means an uplifting book, this is Morrison’s most famous work for a reason.
Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
Few books capture the spirit of summer quite like this one.
The Color of Lightning by Paulette Jiles
This has been on my TBR shelf for far too long, and maybe it doesn’t have a color explicitly in the title, but I think it’s close enough.
The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune
This charming book was the first one that came to mind since I finished it relatively recently.
Blue Nights by Joan Didion
An old favorite that I enjoyed flipping through again after pulling it off the shelf.
Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly
Alright, I’m developing a pattern here. Let’s see if I can find some that aren’t a shade of blue.
The White Album by Joan Didion
That’s better! Though even this one has a bit of blue on the cover. This is another favorite from Didion that I’d like to reread soon.
Cherry by Mary KarrI learned a few years ago that if Karr wrote something, I’m going to want to read it. While I still favor Lit, this one was a great read too. Plus, it adds a bit of color variety to this list!
