Hi everyone! For this week’s TTT the prompt it Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies, and I wasn’t feeling that one since I’d say basically every book that I rated 4.5 stars or higher, so I thought I’d catch up on a recently past TTT Books with Colors in the Title!
The last Top Ten Tuesday I participated in was Books that Made Me Smile because I’ve been busy the past month on Monday and Tuesday for a number of reasons dealing with school!
I also recently posted the Meet the Book Blogger Tag!
TTT is a weekly meme hosted by thatartsyreadergirl.
Also, I thought this was going to be an “easy” prompt similar the post with number, but I had to walk around my room to look for titles with colors then, bam! They seemed to be popping up everywhere!
Obsidian and Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout
These are books 1 and 3 respectively in the Lux series! This was the first series I read by JLA and was a huge part in me reading more of the sci-fi/alien stuff.
This is one of those series that I’d love to reread if I had the time so I could review them! I read them back in the 10th grade I believe, so it’s definitely time for me to revisit these books! I had read The Darkest Star (which is a spin off of this series) and really enjoyed it, but there nothing like the original series!
Black and Green by C.L. Stone
Ok, this is Book 11 of the Ghost Bird series that primarily focuses on Dr. Green’s relationship with Sang.
This is another book that I need to reread!
There was a lot going on in this book, and I’m so glad that the guys were finally able to get Sang out of her house! The 13th book is speculated to be released soon (although we don’t have an exact date), and I can’t wait to read it because it follows Victor who is just amazing in my opinion.
Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue, and Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier
I haven’t read this trilogy yet, but it involves time traveling and is a historical fiction book if I understand correctly.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This is one of the first books that I ever binge read in about 3 days! I loved the Red Queen when I read it and was eagerly waiting for the release of the Glass Sword.
The Red Queen was exciting and had so many elements in it from the love triangle (which I’m kind of over right now) to the magical powers to the twists and turns.
Somewhere between finishing the first book and waiting for the second one, I lost interest in the series and majorly struggled to finish the second one. I have the rest of the series including the book with the novellas but have no interest in finishing the series.
White Stag by Kara Barieri
Another book I haven’t read… imagine that. I’m just going to put the synopsis for this book because I don’t know enough to even try to talk about it.
“As the last child in a family of daughters, seventeen-year-old Janneke was raised to be the male heir. While her sisters were becoming wives and mothers, she was taught to hunt, track, and fight. On the day her village was burned to the ground, Janneke—as the only survivor—was taken captive by the malicious Lydian and eventually sent to work for his nephew Soren.
Janneke’s survival in the court of merciless monsters has come at the cost of her connection to the human world. And when the Goblin King’s death ignites an ancient hunt for the next king, Soren senses an opportunity for her to finally fully accept the ways of the brutal Permafrost. But every action he takes to bring her deeper into his world only shows him that a little humanity isn’t bad—especially when it comes to those you care about.
Through every battle they survive, Janneke’s loyalty to Soren deepens. After dangerous truths are revealed, Janneke must choose between holding on or letting go of her last connections to a world she no longer belongs to. She must make the right choice to save the only thing keeping.”
Shattered Blue and Renegade Red by Lauren Bird Horowitz
“For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, sixteen-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different. Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.
But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch—or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?”
I don’t know anything about this duology either. I had one a giveaway by the author and got a copy of Renegade Red (and had to buy a copy of Shattered Blue because I wasn’t aware until after the fact the RR was book 2).
Red Labyrinth by Meredith Tate
I had gotten a copy of this book in a Fae Crate Box sometime last year. I haven’t heard much about it but from the synopsis it sounds like The Maze Runner meets Divergent meets The Testing!
Summer Blue Bird by Akemi Dawn Bowman
Ok I’m really upset with myself for not having this book read by now!
“Rumi Seto spends a lot of time worrying she doesn’t have the answers to everything. What to eat, where to go, whom to love. But there is one thing she is absolutely sure of—she wants to spend the rest of her life writing music with her younger sister, Lea.
Then Lea dies in a car accident, and her mother sends her away to live with her aunt in Hawaii while she deals with her own grief. Now thousands of miles from home, Rumi struggles to navigate the loss of her sister, being abandoned by her mother, and the absence of music in her life. With the help of the “boys next door”—a teenage surfer named Kai, who smiles too much and doesn’t take anything seriously, and an eighty-year-old named George Watanabe, who succumbed to his own grief years ago—Rumi attempts to find her way back to her music, to write the song she and Lea never had the chance to finish.
Aching, powerful, and unflinchingly honest.”
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
I read Cruel Beauty by Rosamund years ago and thought it was an interesting twist on Beauty and the Beast, so I wanted to see where she went with her other book that is based on Little Red Riding Hood!
Chasing Red by Isabelle Ronin
I got this book years ago for Christmas.
I know it was a Wattpad story and is a NA romance… couldn’t say much else. Has anyone read it? What were your thoughts? I have a feeling that it’s going to be similar to After but that’s just my gut feeling.
What are some books that you had one your list of books with colors in the title? Let me know below!
Happy reading until next time,
