This week’s topic had us hunting down books that inspired images of hues and shades: Book titles that sound like they could be Crayola crayon colors. Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for another creative Top Ten Tuesday topic!
White Teeth by Zadie Smith
This one is a bit gross but it gets the idea across.
Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh
A bit of a whimsical name but I can just picture the strange silvery glow the color would have.
The Wave by Susan Casey
This one would be a deep shade of turquoise.
Nutshell by Ian McEwan
I’m imagining this one would be a light brown hue.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Not sure what color this one would be – maybe gray?
Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
Naturally, this color would match the drink—a hazy, golden yellow.
Pastoralia by George Saunders
Less warm than “Dandelion Wine,” this crayon would be a pale yellow.
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
Just picture the creepiest orange ever, maybe with tones of blood red.
The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle
This crayon would somehow have several layers of different colors so you could easily create a rainbow effect.
Dune by Frank Herbert
The color of the spice—what else?
