Top Ten Tuesday – Books with Color in the Titles


The theme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl is about books with color in the titles.  Join in – it’s fun to see what others are reading.

My introduction to Ann Cleeves was through the Shetland series.  I have yet to complete that one as I have been devouring her Vera series.  Here are two with color in the title.

Black Raven by Ann Cleeves.  Book one in the Shetland series
White Nights by Ann Cleeves. Book two in the Shetland series

Scarlett Feather, Lilac Bus and The Copper Beach by Maeve Binchy.  I have read all of her books and she always delivers a story that transports me to Ireland.  Gentle reading, nothing horrific in her prose.

Next up is a non fiction that I felt was way better than the televison series.   Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman The book bears little resemblence to the show.  It’s a good nonfiction if you have an interest.

Crimson Snow edited by Marion Edwards is a collection of short stories, all set in winter.
Blue Monday by Nicci French. Book one in the Frieda Klein series. I started with book 6 I think. I really need to pay better attention to which books precede in a series!

That’s all I have this week. It was a hurried sort of gathering but I just can’t seem to resist the Top Ten posts.  Fun stuff to do during what seems like an eternal lockdown.

I have some good books to post about upcoming.  A friend sent me We Believe in Mermaids by Barbara O’Neil and I am just finishing up The Darkest Night by Jenny O’Brien. This is a series new to me aboout Welsh policewoman DC Garbriella Darin. I like it so far.

Also, I did just finish up The Silence by Susan Allott and I can say it’s one of the best books I have read this year.

I hope everyone is well and staying out of trouble!

  1. Good list. I forgot about The Scarlet Feather. I have that around somewhere. I would recommend Allende. (From your comment at EE.) I would start with House of the Spirits; that was the first work I read. I can’t wait to hear about O’Neal’s mermaid book. I’ve read two later ones of hers and have been intrigued by this one.
