Autumn is almost here, so its time to bring back a favorite challenge: the Literary Colors Challenge.

Duration: October 1st to 31st

The goal is to read 10 books whose covers match predominantly the colors listed.

1. Orange
2. Red
3. Brown
4. Green
5. Black
6. Yellow
7. Purple
8. Pink
9. Blue
10. Silver/Gray

Be sure to post the cover for confirmation. To do that, click on the 'add book/author' on top of the message box, search your book, and at the bottom, click on cover instead of link.

Example:

1. Orange - Red Kiss (Gods of Midnight, #2) by Deidre Knight
2. Red - Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1) by J.R. Ward

You can start posting your choices, but as usual, no reading challenge books until the first of the month.

When posting your books, please make sure to put the date/s when you finished your book/s. It will really help us with the updates.

Michelle(Chelle) aka Nightshade - Cake Whisperer (MichMag) | 758 comments Quick question - do all the books have to be PNR? I have a back-log of historical romances from my shopping sprees at Border's and at least a few of them meet the color requirements above. Just wondering if I can use those in the challenge and if so how many I am allowed. I need to start knocking some books off my TBR list.

Thanks!

I think you're allowed a couple that have no paranormal element at all.

Hope this helps.

Ezinwanyi~the Impish Angel  (Oh My Shelves) (Ezinwanyi) What color would you give me credit for:
Brown or Pink?

Stay the Night (Darkyn, #7) by Lynn Viehl


Alana ~ The Book Pimp (LoonyAlana) | 535 comments Personally, I would say brown


Ezinwanyi~the Impish Angel  (Oh My Shelves) (Ezinwanyi) @Alana,
I was hoping for pink, so I could pick between Twilight Fall and Archangel's Kiss for a brown choice. Even though they both are more yellow/tan, than actually brown. See my list and give me feedback.
Thanks!


Alana ~ The Book Pimp (LoonyAlana) | 535 comments @ Ezin:
In your case, if it were up to me... I would say Twilight Fall for brown, Archangel's Kiss for yellow, and use Stay the Night for pink... it's not perfectly cut and dry on the colors, but I think you have a "case" behind your choices


Ezinwanyi~the Impish Angel  (Oh My Shelves) (Ezinwanyi) Thanks Alana. That was what I envisioned as well

@Yz, does that work?
