Top Ten Tuesday - Books with Colours in the Title


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks topic is
Books with Colours in the Titles


Agatha Christie - The Mystery of the Blue Train
It’s on my to read list, I’m slowly working my way through Christie’s catalogue, there is a lot of it!

Joanne Fluke - Blueberry Muffin Murder
This is a series I started during my hiatus, Blueberry Muffin Murder is book three of this cosy crime series and I love them as these books are full of foodie descriptions along with the recipes.

Ronald Dahl - James and the Giant Peach
I haven’t read this for years but I went through my Dahl phase when I was a pre teen and this was one of my favourites, up there with George’s Marvellous Medicine.



Red Knight Falling by Craig Schaefer
I loved this book about a mysterious satellite orbiting the earth, FBI agent Harmony Black 
is on the case!

Iron Gold by Pierce Brown
I’ve not read it but the beautiful hardback is sitting on my book shelf judging me!

Black Leopard Red Wolf by Marlon James
Another one with a beautiful cover that is sitting looking at me from my book shelf side eyeing me for not reading it yet!

The Greenland Diaries by Patrick Marsh
Spooky as hell series set in a world devastated by monsters that are summoned by an ominous drum.


Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Read it, loved it, still to finish reading more books in this series - see Iron Gold above!!

All Systems Red by Martha Wells
Ah Murderbot, I love you!

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This was a fantastic read, but as usual I still need to read the other books!

  4. James and the giant peach is HILARIOUS! I read it in class last year and we had so much fun.

    War Storm is on my list for so long now, going to finish that Red Queen series!

  8. Oh yeah, another peach person. James is an oldie but goodie. My daughter was obsessed with that movie as a kid too.

  9. I've read almost all of the Agatha Christie's, but it's been a long time. Way before Goodreads and I haven't even added them in there. There are a lot of titles with blue or red in them, right? I had a hard time getting other colors. Nice list!

  13. The only one of these I've read is THE BLUEBERRY MUFFIN MURDER. I don't love Fluke's books, but her recipes always sound good. I think I made one of them once and liked it.

    Happy TTT!

  15. Fun list. The Blueberry Muffin Murder is the only one I've read, but I have the Murderbot Diaries on my TBR. :D

    1. Murderbot is a great read, I’m looking forward to reading more in the series.

  16. Terrific list! I love Agatha Christie; The Mystery of the Blue Train was pretty good, as I recall, though not one of my favorites. She has a couple of others with colours in the title: The Man in the Brown Suit and a Tommy and Tuppence short story called "The Affair of the Pink Pearl" are the ones that jump to mind. As for the other books you listed, the Murderbot books and the Pierce Brown books are on my list to read someday. I have to admit that I wasn't a fan of James and the Giant Peach; when it came to Dahl, I preferred Charlie and the Chocolate Factor and Fantastic Mr. Fox.

    1. I love Agatha too, I’ve been working my way through Poirot over the last few years, I’ve really enjoyed them. I think my favourite Dahl book was a toss up between George’s Marvellous Medicine and The BFG. I’ve not reread them as and adult, I really must.

  17. I liked Red Queen but it wasn't a favourite. I stopped reading after Book 2 because I struggled so much with the second book. I loved Roald Dahl books when I was a kid, he was one of my favourites :)

    1. The Fluke covers are great, lovely and colourful. I’m a sucker for the vintage look and Blue Train hits it.

  23. Alright, I don't think I can resist the Blueberry Muffin Murder! That cover made me smile so much -- great list!

  24. I haven't actually read any of these books (nope, not even James and the Giant Peach) but this is a great prompt for a post!

  25. I feel like the colors blue and red are the most common ones used in titles. I love that you included James and the Giant Peach - I wouldn't have thought to include that, but peach IS a color.

  30. So many wonderful reads this week! I love your list. James and the Giant Peach barely missed making it onto mine. Same with one of Joanne Fluke's books. So many colors, but only ten spaces!

    ReplyDelete
  31. "Red Queen" is an easy add and it's fun to see so many had the same thought. Don't think I've ever heard of the Christie mystery you feature, but it's another perfect fit. :) Thanks so much for the visit to Finding Wonderland.

  32. Red Knight Falling sounds really interesting. I'll have to look that one up
