Color-Coded Reading Challenge 2013

Another fun challenge that will be reprised in 2013 - double hooray!!! I really enjoy this challenge, which is hosted by Bev at My Reader's Block. The rules have been changed slightly this year, allowing shades of colors - that should make things interesting! I know I have a couple books on hand for this, it will be interesting to see which others I might be able to snag off Mount TBR and use as well.

Here are the rules:

*Read nine books in the following categories.

1. A book with "Blue" or any shade of Blue (Turquoise, Aquamarine, Navy, etc.) in the title. - The Bobbsey Twins on the Deep Blue Sea - Laura Lee Hope

2. A book with "Red" or any shade of Red (Scarlet, Crimson, Burgundy, etc.) in the title. - Years of Red Dust - Qiu Xiaolong

3. A book with "Yellow" or any shade of Yellow (Gold, Lemon, Maize, etc.) in the title. Goldengrove - Francine Prose

4. A book with "Green" or any shade of Green (Emerald, Lime, Jade, etc.) in the title. Green Hills of Africa - Ernest Hemingway

5. A book with "Brown" or any shade of Brown (Tan, Chocolate, Beige, etc.) in the title. Brown Girl, Brownstones - Paule Marshall

6. A book with "Black" or any shade of Black (Jet, Ebony, Charcoal, etc.) in the title. Black and Ugly - T. Styles

7. A book with "White" or any shade of White (Ivory, Eggshell, Cream, etc.) in the title. - The White Hound of the Mountain and Other Irish Folk Tales - Thomas J. Kiernan

8. A book with any other color in the title (Purple, Orange, Silver, Pink, Magneta, etc.). - The Secret of the Silver Dolphin - Carolyn Keene

9. A book with a word that implies color (Rainbow, Polka-dot, Plaid, Paisley, Stripe, etc.). - Rainbow Soup - Brian P. Cleary/Neal Layton

I'll be posting books as I read them during 2013. Can't wait!
