TTT: Books With Colors in the Title

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is one of those ones that sounds super easy, right, but then you try to do it, and it’s sneaky hard! Books with colors in the title, like what? I’m only going to use books I’ve already read so I can scream about them appropriately, but damn, this…
