Challenge Complete: Color Coded


My challenge for myself and other readers each year in the Color Coded Challenge  is to read nine with various color connections. After several years of the challenge, I wasn't sure that I would be able to do another round (especially "brown" and "white"--those are my two most difficult ones, primarily because I prefer the colors to be in the titles rather than just the color of the cover). But--I managed it again! 


Here's my list of books read:
1. A book with "Blue" or any shade of Blue (Turquoise, Aquamarine, Navy, etc) in the title/on the cover.
The Indigo Necklace by Frances Crane (4/12/16)
 
2. A book with "Red" or any shade of Red (Scarlet, Crimson, Burgandy, etc) in the title/on the cover.
Red for Murder by Harold Kemp (1/13/16)
3. A book with "Yellow" or any shade of Yellow (Gold, Lemon, Maize, etc.) in the title/on the cover.
The Case of the Black-Eyed Blonde by Erle Stanley Gardner (4/12/16)

4. A book with "Green" or any shade of Green (Emerald, Lime, Jade, etc) in the title/on the cover.
The Jade Venus by George Harmon Coxe (4/7/16)
5. A book with "Brown" or any shade of Brown (Tan, Chocolate, Beige, etc) in the title/on the cover.
The Cinnamon Murder by Frances Crane (6/6/16)

6. A book with "Black" or any shade of Black (Jet, Ebony, Charcoal, etc) in the title/on the cover.
The Doberman Wore Black by Barbara Moore (2/9/16)
7. A book with "White" or any shade of White (Ivory, Eggshell, Cream, etc) in the title/on the cover.
The Chalk Circle Man by Fred Vargas (4/21/16) [cover is also mostly white]

8. A book with any other color in the title/on the cover (Purple, Orange, Silver, Pink, Magneta, etc.).
The Purple Cloud by M. P. Shiel (1/2/16)
The Silver Anniversary Murder by Lee Harris (2/17/16)
