Top Ten Tuesday #249


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten 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 book titles that could be Crayola crayon colors. Seriously??? I'm kind of combining this with titles that sound like they could be paint swatches? You know how you go to the store and the paint all has wild sounding names. Like verdant sea or whatever.   








BTW I looked up Crayola crayon colors and some of them are wild! Here are some I especially like: 

Mango Tango
Razzmatazzz 
Burnt Umber
Screamin' Green
Lapis Lazuli
Malachite
Wash The Dog 
Campfire Flicker
Sea Glass 
Snow Drift 
Pool Party
Sunset Luau

  1. If I had gotten real fancy, I'd have looked up some paint colors and made a kind of "mood" board for the books and matched them up with a color. But alas, who has time for that!? :D WOW. Some of those colors are pretty crazy!

  4. After spending the weekend picking a paint, I totally get the paint swatch vibes.

  5. I had a fondness for "ultramarine blue" in my old paint box :) Not crazy, It's always funny to see Tintin is known all over the world. "Wash the dog" ? It's... well... lol !

  6. I want to know what Girls Night Out would look like. Such a fabulous name

  8. Haa you are right, paints have the weirdest names! And the Castafiore Diamond -- what a perfect choice!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Nice picks! Yeah, it's funny the names they give paint and crayola crayons.


    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  10. Thanks for sharing the real Crayola crayon names, too.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, I like the idea of paint swatches, too! Sanctuary Bay sounds like it would be a really soothing color.

    ReplyDelete
  12. These definitely work as paint swatch names😁 I saw another blogger do nail polish names, so its pretty clear that its fun to name colors😁

  13. Ivory and bone is the same vibes as I went for with the bone season!

  15. Love your picks and omg LOL I love the existing colour names that you shared! I'm gonna go google some of these now cos I'm so curious to know what colours they are?! Great post, Greg 😍

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ivory and Bone definitely sounds like it could be a crayon colour.

  17. I loved your take of this theme Greg. Here is my post-https://paigesofbook.blogspot.com/2021/04/top-ten-tuesday-books-that-could-be.html.

  18. Creative book titles but I have no idea what they mean.

    Mango Tango sounds like a dance move. Is Wash The Dog brown or dirt brown? And what type of dogs would they be referring to?

    Have a lovely day.

  19. I'm loving The River at Night. That's a great paint/crayola color.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hi Greg! Great selection! Girls night out... Now what color will that be?? And Ivory and Bone? Isn't that like almost the same color? The one is just warmer undertones. Loved what you did with this post today Greg!

    Happy TTT and here's my Ten Crayola Colors Book Titles

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, Girls Night Out sounds like a fun color! I'm imagining a hot pink or vibrant red for that one. Also love The River At Night.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yeah, this one really sent me for a toss. I was also feeling too lazy to figure out Crayon names and then think of cool books to match... But I like that you went with colors or color connections in your book titles.:-) And I wonder what's Screamin' Green (instead of the usual green) and what's Wash the Dog? Like, really! These colors are a lot like the pulp fiction titles you share on your blog, haha.

  23. The River at Night would be a great paint/crayon color name. I also really like Sanctuary Bay. I'd paint my room that color it just sounds so soothing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Girls Night Out absolutely needs to be a crayon! I actually love this list. I think that Sanctuary Bay should be a spa color. <3

    ReplyDelete
  25. I had no idea about these colors either before that and checked them out. I couldn't find inspiration for this post though, you did a great job. I love Blood Tide!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Some of those real crayon names are super crazy and don't conjure up any color for me at all. Others are super evocative. I especially love Campfire Flicker.

    Happy TTT!

    ReplyDelete
  27. River at Night and Blood Tide sound intriguing (and dark...in any sense LOL). Girls' Night Out...I'm picturing something dark too, but maybe sparkling?

    As for real colours...Mango Tango, Screamin' Green and...Wash The Dog? πŸ˜‚

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nice list, I especially love how you included your favourite colour names. They are indeed fantastic.

    My TTT.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love wash the dog for a crayon colour! Can't imagine it'd be the nicest one though

    ReplyDelete
  30. Blood Tide and The River at Night are spot on for crayon titles! I also really like some of the official ones you picked out. Mango Tango especially :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wash the Dog is a Crayola color? That's hilarious!

    I like the titles you chose. Blood Tide and Girl's Night Out especially grab my attention.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is fun. I could easily imagine seeing some of these as swatches at my local paint store. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. This topic completely threw me so I skipped it but I love your take on it. Sanctuary Bay sounds like a soothing grey blue you'd paint your bathroom when you're going for a spa like feel but want a deeper color.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thinking of paint colors was very influential while I was making my list. Much easier than crayon colors.... :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I want to check out those colors you mention, I mean..snow drift..white? Lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ha! I definitely agree paint has some pretty wild colors - I don't think I've really seen how wild until I started my current job. πŸ˜‚ Some of them I don't think I'll ever understand but I'm not a painter so... who am I to talk.

    I think I'd like The River at Night as a color, but most likely I'd probably see that as paint.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like Blood Tide as a color. Not sure it would go as a crayon color because it might not be appropriate for children, but great as a paint swatch!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What color was Wash the Dog? Ha ha. 😁
