Top Ten Tuesday 214

  
 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is books with colors in their titles. I wasn't sure how I wanted to approach the topic and as I was pulling covers I ended up almost making this an all- Tintin post! But I restrained myself (who knew they had so many colors in their titles?) and included a few others, as well.  

The Blue

The Blue Lotus (Tintin, #5)

The Black Island (Tintin, #7)

Red Rackham's Treasure (Tintin, #12)

The Crab with the Golden Claws (Tintin, #9)

Land of Black Gold (Tintin, #15)

Sisters of the Vast Black

Golden City Vol. 1: Wreck Raiders

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

  1. Oh fun! I love Sisters of the Vast Black, such a good one. I want to read Golden City, too. And who knew Tintin was such a fan of color titles?!

  2. I confess I thought this one would be WAY easier than it was. But perhaps the struggle came because I decided to limit myself to only books I owned!? :)

  3. Hi there! Love the Tin Tin covers! I wanted to use Dr Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham, but rather did an art lesson. LOL Here's my I see your true colors

  4. Wow, seeing these Tintin covers is giving me massive nostalgia feels! I didn't even notice how most of the titles had colours in them πŸ˜… Great list!

  5. The Sisters of the Vast Black sounds an intriguing title and I remember Tintin fondly! Thanks for sharing.

  6. You TOTALLY should have used all TinTin books! :D That's so awesome...I never even realized how many TinTin books used colors in their titles until you pointed it out.

  9. I put Red Rackham’s treasure on mine as well, but I’d forgot just how many tintin books have colours in the titles.

  13. What a nostalgic list of colourful book titles, Greg. I loved the Tintin books as a kid - Each week I used get a different one from the library. Now you're making me think I need a re-read! πŸ€“

  17. Love that you included One Fish, Two Fish. I had that book memorized when I was a kid. It drove my parents crazy. :D

  18. You definitely should have made this a Tintin post, I think the covers are amazing! There's a cafe in my town that has giant posters of the covers upstairs, they look really cool.

  23. I used to LOVE Tin Tin books. I haven't read one in ages - maybe I should! Thanks for the trip down memory lane :)

    Happy TTT!

  24. Tintin! I haven't read those in ages, and never did track them all down, only a few. Did you see the movie? I thought it was fun.

    Here's my TTT post for this week!

  25. I loved Lucy Clarke's other novels, but I still need to read The Blue. And as a Belgian, I find it very nice you used some Tintin books for this :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Crap I forgot TinTin too, when I did my list I forgot so many including A Clockwork Orange.

    I love TinTin, it was on Netflix the original series but they’ve taken it off before I had a chance to watch.

    Great list Greg!

  27. You did a good job! I think this is a tough topic.

  32. Such great choices this week!! I really was shocked at how many books I had with colors in the title.. just on me "READ" bookshelf on Goodreads!

    ReplyDelete
  33. You have a very nice, varied selection here, Greg! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow what a list! You obviously love Tim & Struppi stories as the Tintin books are called in Germany. Love it. Happy reading and stay safe and well.

  35. I thought there might be a few Tintin books sneaking in there!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think the Tintin covers are fun, haven't read any of them though. Strange, I've never read a Dr. Seuss book, maybe it's not strange, there are tons of children's books I haven't read.

    Have a lovely day.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Fun topic and I have read NONE of these! It's funny that a lot of the books don't have covers that match the color in the title!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a great list! I didn't realize how many books with colors in the title there were until this topic, lol. :D

    ReplyDelete
  39. An all Tin Tin list would have been fun. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. That cover on Sister's of the Vast Black is beautiful! I can't believe I've never read or seen Tintin, it feels like I've missed out on a right of passage.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Haha who knew Tin Tin was so fond of colors? Love them though! Also love the cover for The Blue.

    ReplyDelete
  42. OMG Greg! You featured Lindsey and I national hero: Tintin!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish! Dr. Seuss is awesome. :)
