Meghanly | 327 comments How do we feel about Savvy by Ingrid Law ? Blue enough, or too much yellow?


message 12: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 7586 comments Ice Queen (Nature of Desire, #3) by Joey W. Hill - enough blue/black?


message 13: by Felina (new)

Felina I assume this is black enough. :)

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke

Masanobu | 158 comments I was wondering whether the red stands out too much to qualify for the task:
Los hombres que no amaban a las mujeres (Millennium, #1) by Stieg Larsson

The book needs to be at least half blue, black, and/or white. Looks like this one has just enough blue to qualify, so you're good.

Looks like it has all three colors in it -- blue, black, and white -- so you're good! Any combination of those will work.

Even with the pink, it still looks at least half blue, white and black to me. So, yes, it'll work.
