Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors

“Cornflower Blue” was a special favorite crayon of mine. Today’s colors? Wow! At last there is a skin-tone crayon for just about everyone. That’s super.

Here are some books titles that I think could/should be Crayola crayon colors

Old Yeller would be the color of a dirty old yard dog who was mostly yellow Labrador.

The History Boys Crested School Blazer. The color of a well-worn navy blue, crested, school blazer.

The Banana Republic Dictator’s Fatigues would be the color of Fidel’s oldest set of sun-bleached fatigues.

Bleak House Porridge would be a watery beige-y-greyish hue.

 

Island Style would be the lushest, most gem-like tropical green.

Riviera Set would out Mediterranean the existing Mediterranean blue.

Sinatra: The Chairman would be the bluest of blue eyes blue. In some markets, it would be tested as Rowan Farrow blue.

Hillbilly Elegy would be the color of dip spit in an empty Mt. Dew bottle.

Evicted would be the color of old Seagram’s boxes.

The Good Sister would be a sweet shade of pink.

 

Why not join the fun next week? You can read the rules here.

  1. An innovative spin on this week’s very tough TTT! Existing book titles that *can* be unique Crayola crayons, instead of existing crayon names that match with book titles. Er, I hope I got that across correctly. Either way, a fun post. Can’t pick my favorite, but the navy blue blazer comes close. 🙂
