This week’s TTT is interesting– I have never put much thought into books that have colours in the title. It was fun to look back on the books that I have read and notice that quite a few of them fit into this category. I highly recommend all of the books on this list!
Blue Ticket by Sophie Mackintosh
Blue Ticket is a book that haunts me. Sophie Mackintosh has this way of creating an atmosphere that feels so suffocating.
All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson
What makes All Boys Aren’t Blue so special is that it is both a memoir and a manifesto, and it is targeted toward young adults and teenagers. I personally really loved the letters Johnson wrote to the people in their life. So powerful!
Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel
Darling Rose Gold is one of the most uncomfortable books I have ever read. Every single character is so unlikable, and you never know who to trust. It made for an intense reading experience!
Raven Black by Ann Cleaves
Shetland, which is based on this book series, is arguably my favourite TV show. I have only read this first book, but I did enjoy it quite a bit. It is an atmospheric mystery, but it is really the characters who I love!
Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh
Silver in the Wood is one of my favourite novellas, and I believe the sequel comes out this month. I cannot wait to read it!
Bitter Orange by Claire Fuller
Bitter Orange was my favourite book of last year. I just adore Fuller’s writing style. This book made me uncomfortable in the best way.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
I’ve only read the first book in this series, which is ridiculous considering how much I truly enjoyed Red Rising. So many people have told me it only gets better!
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
How could I not include Anne of Green Gables?! It’s an obvious pick!
White Oleander by Janet Finch
It has been years since I have read White Oleander, but it feels like yesterday. I think it is the most gut-wrenching novel I have ever read.
All Systems Red by Martha Wells
All Systems Red is the first book in the Murderbot series, which I just talked about on the blog recently saying that I needed to continue on with it. I have only read the first two books, but it’s such a fun and surprisingly charming series!
From looking at my shelves it seems as though “red” and “blue” are the most common colours to appear in books titles!
What are books you have read that have a colour in the title?

Anne of Green Gables is such a great one for this week’s theme! Great list! 🙂
I just had to include it!
All great picks!
Great list 😊
I didn’t love DARLING ROSE GOLD, but I do love ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. BLUE TICKET is one I want to read as well.
I totally understand not loving Darling Rose Gold. It’s not a book I would recommend to everyone!
All Boys Aren’t Blue sounds so good!
My TTT .
Great list! Silver in the Wood sounds fascinating. My TTT: https://moonlitbooks.home.blog/2020/08/04/tttcolours/
It is so good, and a quick read too!
Great lis! I really should read All boys aren’t blue!
You should! It is fantastic!
Great selection! I included Anne, All Systems Red and one of the Shetland books as well!
Oooh, I hope you get the chance to continue the Red Rising series sometime, the rest of that original trilogy is amazing!
I own them, so it is ridiculous that I haven’t read them yet!
Not ridiculous – practical to pile up books, practical! After all, we never know the next time we will have a shut down.
That is such a good point!
silver in the wood and darling rose gold are both on my tbr! and Anne of green gables is a lovely choice💜
Silver in the Wood is fantastic. Now’s the perfect time to read it!
I love Red Risign and you should totally read the sequels because it keeps getting better I promise you!
I have the next books, so I have no excuses!
A lot of these books are on my TBR too and I can’t wait to read them especially Red Rising and All boys aren’t blue
Both are amazing!
I really can’t wait to read them
Some amazing covers on your list, and there are a few here that I’ve read and loved. I just treated myself to that exact version of Anne of Green Gables. The cover is beautiful!
I’ve heard Red Rising is soooo good. I’ve only heard of it recently, but all the reviews of it have been raving!! (Also, that Anne of Green Gables cover is GORGEOUS)
It is really good!! There are so many editions of Anne of Green Gables, but this one is definitely my favourite!
Blue ticket and Raven Black are such nice covers. I like Bitter Orange too.
Bitter Orange is one of my favourite covers! The covers for Blue Ticket and Raven Black perfectly match the tones of the story.
I’m dying to read White Oleander – glad you enjoyed it. You wrote a great list!
My Top Ten Tuesday
Thank you! It is a heartbreaking book but it is also fantastic!
