Another popular “reading challenge” prompt, along with “fruits and vegetables” is a book with a certain color in the title. I think the PopSugar prompt for this year is “A book with your favorite color in the title.” As you might imagine, it’s a lot easier to find books with black and white in the title as opposed to say, magenta, but I’ve put together a pretty robust list of books with colors in the title for you, across multiple genres, so go forth and choose your favorite color!
My favorite color is purple, so I’ll probably be re-reading The Color Purple this year, though I’m tempted to pretend it’s mauve just so I can read Nabokov’s Favorite Word was mauve, which I love.
Of the ones I’ve read on this list, I highly recommend The Golden House if you love beautiful prose, I Got This: To Gold and Beyond and Grace, Gold, and Glory if you love the USA gymnastics team, and Girl in Hyancith Blue if you love historical fiction and/or art history.
