Happy Top Ten Tuesday everyone! I was planning to post more over the past few days, but for some reason my energy levels were gone. I was perpetually tired and I have no clue why. But I’m alive again, so back to blogging it is!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and you can find all past and future prompts on her blog! This week the prompt is: book titles that sound like they could be Crayola colors!colors
Okay so I’ll be the first to admit that I love Crayola crayons. I have absolutely no use for them, and yet I have like 500. Whenever I see the Crayola section in stores I just get so happy! I looked up some funny Crayola names, and noticed that not all of them have a color in them. So there’s lots of room for creativity with this post!
By Naomi Novik
Obviously this would be a blue-ish silver color. Something that’ll match the cover! I stil haven’t read this book though… I sorta DNF’d it when I got bored, but I also kind of want to know how it ends. It’s a curse.
The Empire of Gold
By S.A. Chakraborty
So obviously The Empire of Gold will have a golden tone. The entire Daevabad trilogy would make great Crayola color names, but the cover above is my favorite of the three. It’s so detailed and actually golden.
By Marissa Meyer
Heartless probably wouldn’t be a kid-friendly color… So I went for dark reds! I actually really like this color palette. My favorite colors of these are the left most two! Did you know I only look good in dark reds? I can’t wear bright red at all, unfortunately.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue
By Maggie Stiefvater
I blindly tried to match this palette to the green-blue flowers on the cover and I think I sorta did it. I love these types of colors. Is it blue? Is it green? Let’s discuss! I only see two blues, the middle three are all green for me.
By S. Jae-Jones
I hope these colors make you feel cold. This is definitely the most wintery book I have ever read, and I read it in the summer… Don’t read winter books in the summer y’all, it feels weird. I have the sequel of this book, but have yet to read it. It would’ve been fun to add, though, because it’s called Shadowsong and it would fit a palette of grays perfectly!
The Name of the Wind
By Patrick Rothfuss
Here’s a gray palette for you! “The Name of the Wind” reminds me of well… wind. Duh. And wind is gray, don’t argue. I think I associate wind with gray because usually when it’s windy it’s also rainy here. Oh the joys of living in The Netherlands.
By Elly Blake
Fireblood would obviously be a fiery color, but on steroids. Think blood orange and make it super bright. I think the color that best conveys this is the second to last one, but I like all of these! They definitely make me think of warmth and fire.
Six of Crows
By Leigh Bardugo
What other option is there but to make the color Six of Crows black? Also there are various shades of black and you can’t convince me otherwise. If you’ve ever been frustrated because your blacks don’t match, you owe me a comment (jk, but as someone who wears a lot of black this is a good source of frustration).
Sorcery of Thorns
By Margaret Rogerson
Of course I had to make a green palette. Sorcery of Thorns would be a magical color that reminds one of dark forests! Green is my favorite color at the moment, and I’d love to have a dark green accent wall when I live on my own. My favorite of these colors is the second one!
By Brandon Sanderson
I’m not sure how well this title would work for a Crayola color, but I really wanted to make a purple palette. It was the only rainbow color still missing! I think it matches the cover of this book quite nicely, even though that’s not really the point. Anyway, I love purple. Just like dark red, it’s one of four colors that look good on me. The other two are dark green and turquoise. So I can forget about wearing summer colors lol.
That’s it for today! I hope you liked the colors I matched to the book. Which book titles do you think would make great Crayola color names?
Spinning Silver is so descriptive. I love it.

I really want to finish it one day, but I think I’ll save it for this winter, considering it has quite a frosty theme lol
Love your colour palletes here!
These are the books titles I thought sounded like those Crayola colours!
Thank you!! Picking colors was the most fun art haha. Love that you came up with color swatches too!
Some great choices here!
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2021/04/13/top-ten-tuesday-311/
Wintersong would be a cool crayon name.
It would look super frosty. In real life I’d hope the color would have silver sparkles in it too!
This is by far the most beautiful post! Wow!! So impressed. I do hope that Crayola stumble upon your post and pick some of your choices! I can totally color with these ones!
Happy TTT and here’s my very boring Ten Crayola Colors Book Titles
Thanks so much!!😊 Picking colors to go with the titles was so much fun haha
Spinning Silver would be a great title–and I love that you included colour palletes! Great list 🙂
Fireblood sounds like the perfect Crayola crayon!
