Color Me Happy! Novels with Colorful Titles


When it comes to this world, we already are treated to a whole symphony of color from the moment we step outside. Whether we live in the city and see the bright yellow taxi cabs ushering people off to begin their days or in the country where the lush greens of the trees impress us, there’s color everywhere. When it comes to our reading, we already (hopefully!) see them as “colorful” with their many unique plots, stories and the characters that make us laugh or cry with the color that is their personality. With all of that to paint our world, we’re about to look at the novels colors in the title.

DISCUSSION | This is the Sound of ‘Folklore’ New Taylor Swift Ranked!

I set out to feature only books already on my shelf, and while I do accomplish this, golly, I didn’t realize how few I own with varying colors in their title. For a while there, it was touch and go if I’d manage to find 10 or so titles. Fortunately I did. If you want more great titles with colors in them, you can easily find them (and there seem to be a lot!), I just decided to stay with those I own.

Let’s get our color on!

1: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Still haven’t read this one, but someday I will (now that it’s no longer a “cool” read). Amazon | Goodreads

2: Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

This book sounds like so much fun! Kind of a What a Girl Wants or Princess Diaries-esque premise with a splash of mystery. Like I said, sounds fun! Amazon | Goodreads

3: Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

Missed this one on my initial run-through of potential titles, but I’m glad I noticed it on Goodreads because it’s one I’d like to read soon…hopefully. Amazon | Goodreads  

4: Coral by Sara Ella

A Little Mermaid re-telling (by the Grimm brothers – not the Disney one!), this novel is a must-add given its titles is solely a color. Amazon | Goodreads

5: Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter

It’s been a minute since I read one of Denise Hunter’s contemporary novels. But I hear good things about this series. Amazon | Goodreads

6&7: The Red Door Inn and a Sparkle of Silver by Liz Johnson

The first of two authors that I feature two books from on this list. What can I say? When the titles fit the topic, we roll with it. ‘Red’ on Amazon | Goodreads ● ‘Silver’ on Amazon | Goodreads

8: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Pretty sure this is a classic one many would feature on lists. Amazon | Goodreads

9: The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery

Sometimes you just have to feature books back-to-back by the same author. Amazon | Goodreads

10: Blue Skies Tomorrow by Sarah Sundin

I’ve said this too many (??) times, but I love the novels by this author. This is one I haven’t yet read, but here’s to hoping I accomplish this in the not too distant future. Amazon | Goodreads

    1. I’m the same, Jess. Still haven’t read ‘Anne,’ but I grew up watching the movies, so… I should make the effort. ‘Words’ sounds really good so I’d like to read that one as well. :) Appreciate your visit.

    1. Anne is kind of a must to include in a topic like this. She’s classic and, well, who doesn’t love her character?? :) Thanks for the visit, Angela.

    1. I’ve heard this from other readers too, Jo. It’s definitely one of those books “hyped” books, but someday I’d like to give it a read. *shrugs* We’ll see if I do! ;) Thanks for the visit.

    1. OhMyGoodness! This is often my bookworm dilemma too – I read the first 1-2 books in a series, and then don’t finish it. Glad I’m not alone. :) Thanks for the visit, Heather.

    1. Goodness, so am I, Leslie. There was SO much hype surrounding it, but I didn’t get in on reading it at the time, which perhaps, isn’t a bad thing. :) Thanks so much for the visit.

  1. I have read Sarah Sundin and Liz Johnson’s books but not Red Door Inn, although it is sitting on my shelf. Glitter of Gold and Sparkle of Silver were tops in my book. I’m waiting for my copy of Dazzle of Diamonds to show up.
    I will read anything by Sarah. She is a favorite author. I really need to read The Blue Castle.

    1. Sarah’s books are always top quality. Love them. I’m not only behind on reading her backlist of titles, but also Liz’s. Someday I’ll catch up. :) Thanks for the visit, Paula.
