Jayme(the ghost reader) (jaymeiltheghostreader) | 2975 comments Peaches (Peaches, #1) by Jodi Lynn Anderson Is this pink enough? or would this work?

The book cover should be at least half pink. The Beautiful and Damned (Barnes & Noble Classics Series) (Barnes & Noble Classics) by F. Scott Fitzgerald works, Forever by Judy Blume works

The Secrets of Peaches (Peaches, #2) by Jodi Lynn Anderson The Secrets of Peaches would work, but in comparison Peaches (Peaches, #1) by Jodi Lynn Anderson does not seem pink

I'm reading that right now for my fairy tale task - it's good!

yep, I couldn't wait so I'm reading two books for the task. Anyway, so far, I think I like it the best of the Five Hundred kingdoms series.

It doesn't look pink here, but if you have a copy and it is pink- state that it is "pinker" than it looks

some pink titles for "non-pink" readers
The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie Portnoy's Complaint by Philip Roth The Holy Sinner by Thomas Mann Propaganda by Jacques Ellul Silverfish by David Lapham Strip Jack (Inspector Rebus, #4) by Ian Rankin

Beth | 665 comments Can I get a ruling on Light on Snow by Anita Shreve ?

There are highlights and brushes of pail pink in the snow, which I think are easier to make out on the physical book on my shelf than on GR so I wasn't sure if it was obvious enough and wanted to get a mod opinion. Thanks. :)

I can't apply the same standard to every book, so...

if you have a copy and it is pink- state that is is pinker than it looks


message 46: by Kelly (new)

Kelly | 130 comments I actually don't have a copy yet, it is just on my "to read" list and it kind of appears pinkish. I actually have something else in mind that is quite obviously pink, so no worries!

Thanks!
