The 2016 Color Coded Reading Challenge

While waiting for the 2016 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge to be announced, I began jonesing for a new challenge. I scoured the internet for other opportunities to explore new genres, meet new authors, and step outside my comfort zone. That’s how I found The Color Coded Challenge, hosted by My Reader’s Block.

Color Coded 2016

  1. A book with “Blue” or any shade of Blue (Turquoise, Aquamarine, Navy, etc) in the title/on the cover
  2. A book with “Red” or any shade of Red (Scarlet, Crimson, Burgandy, etc) in the title/on the cover
  3. A book with “Yellow” or any shade of Yellow (Gold, Lemon, Maize, etc.)in the title/on the cover
  4. A book with “Green” or any shade of Green (Emerald, Lime, Jade, etc) in the title/on the cover
  5.  A book with “Brown” or any shade of Brown (Tan, Chocolate, Beige, etc) in the title/on the cover
  6. A book with “Black” or any shade of Black (Jet, Ebony, Charcoal, etc) in the title/on the cover
  7.  A book with “White” or any shade of White (Ivory, Eggshell, Cream, etc) in the title/on the cover
  8. A book with any other color in the title/on the cover (Purple, Orange, Silver, Pink, Magneta, etc.)
  9.  A book with a word that implies color (Rainbow, Polka-dot, Plaid, Paisley, Stripe, etc.)

This challenged appealed to me because it only requires nine books. As things turned out, the Book Riot posted their tasks not long after I found this. Since crossovers are permitted by both challenges, I looked for books from these nine categories that also qualify for the Read Harder tasks. I held off announcing my plan to do both challenges until I knew for sure there would be enough overlap. Since I’ve identified eight color-themed books suitable for both, I’m ready to go!

I’ll post my list of books later this year once the challenge is complete. Let me know if you are up for the challenge, too!
