2013 Colorful Reading Challenge

The Colorful Reading Challenge rules:
1. Just choose 9 books with colors in the titles.  
2. The books can overlap with other reading challenges (because let's face it, we need them to.)  
3. Post your links to your reviews each month to share with other participants.
4. The challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to December 1, 2013.
5. Read to your heart's content!

When most people think of colors they think of the basics- red, yellow, blue, green, orange, purple, white, black, and brown.  But don't forget, as Crayola taught us, colors have a wide array of tints and shades so don't forget you can include colors such as silver, gold, plum, pink, crimson, scarlet, turquoise, blonde, gray, pumpkin, the list goes on. 


Hosted by Lost In Books


I'm really looking forward to this one. I did it a few years ago. It was fun reading different "colors". Won't you join in too?



1. Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L James

  1. Here is a challenge that's completely new to me! It sounds like fun, but the requirement of 9 books is a bit high for me!

  2. So many ways to pull together a reading list. This one sounds like fun.

    If you're looking for a red, I'm recommending Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussman. I really enjoyed that! Here's my two cents:

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
