Crayola Color-like Titles #TopTenTuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is:

Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors

Ok this was a fun one! I did not realise that Crayola had so many unusual colour names! Here’s the wikipedia for examples. 

Also, let me know if you’d recommend any of the following titles. The only one I’ve read is Latitudes of Longing.

Here are some titles that could make great crayon colours


Latitudes of Longing – Shubhangi Swarup (blueish green of a sea and jungle)

Fugitive Telemetry – Martha Wells (some kind of greyish-red-brown like metal that’s rusted beyond any hope)

Concrete Rose – Angie Thomas (a dusty grey pink)

Tweet Cute  – Emma Lord (an aqua turquoise like the Twitter icon)

The Snow Tourist – Charlie English (white-grey like a whiteout)

Fireheart Tiger – Aliette de Bodars (a reddish orange with hints of black)

These Violent Delights – Chloe Gong (blood-red that feels heavy)

Sharks in the Time of Saviours – Kawai Strong Washburn (that kind of whitish grey)

Darkdawn – Jay Kristoff (a deep purple)

Are We There Yet? – Kathleen West (a muddy brown of despair)

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.


  1. I didn’t “get” this topic at all and didn’t even try, but I’ve been enjoying everyone’s takes on it! Thanks for sharing the Wikipedia article. I guess I was remembering the old colors from my youth — tangerine was about as exotic as it got, I thought.
