Color Coded Reading Challenge

Okay, this looks like an addiction. I have barely started reading my third gothic novel, and I am already joining new challenges! Fortunately, some of the gothic novels I plan to read have colors in the title (The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, etc.), so I decided to give it a try!

Here are the rules:

Read nine books in the following categories.
1. A book with "Blue" in the title.

2. A book with "Red" in the title.
3. A book with "Yellow" in the title.

4. A book with "Green" in the title.
5. A book with "Brown" in the title.

6. A book with "Black" in the title.
7. A book with "White" in the title.

8. A book with any other color in the title (Purple, Orange, Turquoise, Pink, Magneta, etc.).
9. A book with a word that implies color (Rainbow, Polka-dot, Plaid, Paisley, Stripe, etc.).

Any suggestions of other gothic novels with colors in the title?!


  1. The Woman in White looks good, doesn't it? It's on my Gothic Challenge TBR list too. I'm looking forward to getting to it (but it will probably be another month before I actually do - too many other books on the go!)

  2. Welcome to the Challenge! So glad you're joining us. I hope you enjoy your color-coded reading!

  3. Hi Story! Great to see we're doing two of the same challenges. I'm really enjoying the colour coded challenge and I'm LOVING the gothic novel challenge. I hadn't read much gothic literature before but it's so much fun. I'm just finishing The Woman in White now and I love it! I look forward to reading your reviews to see if we agree :-)
