Hosted By: Books Make Me Happy
1 January 2012 - 31 December 2012

Each month has been assigned a color (along with some common alternate words to add variety). You just have to find a book with that color in the title. That’s it! As you read, come post the title and author of the book for that month below. If you post any reviews about the books you’ve read for this challenge, please post the link in your comment and I’ll send it out on Books Make Me Happy Twitter and Facebook streams. *All books must be at least 200 pages, or the ebook equivalent.*

Colors for each month are:

  • January – Red (burgundy, claret, crimson, fuschia, garnet, magenta, maroon, ruby, scarlet, rose, cherry)
  • February – Purple (violet, lavendar, amethyst, lilac, plum, periwinkle)
  • March – Aquamarine (teal, tourquoise)
  • April – Clear (transparent, transluscent, crystal, diamond)
  • May – Green (emerald, jade, malachite, lime, pine, sage)
  • June – Black
  • July – Pink (blush, carnation, mauve)
  • August - Brown (chocolate, tan, bronze)
  • September – Blue (cobalt, cerulean, navy, indigo, sapphire)
  • October – White (snowy)
  • November – Orange (peach, salmon, coral, tangerine, copper)
  • December – Silver (sterling, platinum, chrome, gray)
