Hi guys! Welcome to the Cover Color Challenge! Last year, I hosted this challenge. Unfortunately, I wasn’t very good at keeping up with it. So here’s to trying again.
The purpose of the Cover Color Challenge is to whittle down my TBR’s. I know LOADS of memes focus on TBR’s, but I just like dividing it by color instead of genre or whatever. I’m a really visual person. I love color! So it’s kind of a cosmic joke because I’m a bit colorblind.
It’s also an easier way for me to pick what to read, when I can narrow it down to 30 or so. Also, the mini-challenge of seeing how many of one color I can read in a month is oddly motivating.
I hope others find it fun and unusual too.
So, here are the rules:
- The Book’s cover must have the color of the month somewhere on it. It’s ok if it’s just the dominate color. I’m not going to be super judge-y about it….because I’m colorblind. If you think it qualifies as red, go ahead.
- You have to read that book during the month the color is chosen. (ex: Don’t count a book for January that you read in December.
- Link up & have fun! *don’t forget the banners!! Grab and use them if you’d like.
- A blog badge will be given to anyone who finishes a minimum of one book a month. Every book read is a win in my book!
The overall banner links to the master post, which lists all the colors for the months of 2017. *I haven’t constructed this post but will edit it in when it’s finished*
The color for January is RED. And wow, that banner turned out a lot darker than it looked in photoshop. Hm…I will have to fix that. Soon.
But for now, I’m telling myself that stuff doesn’t need to be perfect. So I’ve already read a red book! Yay! I’ll put their covers and information below as I read them. I’ll also link to reviews, though they probably own’t be published in January.
My first read of the year, was Genesis Girl by Jennifer Bardsley. (who actually runs a critique group that I’m a part of). I can’t wait to write the review up. It’s a perfect coincidence that it also happens to have a red cover. Also, the fact that Genesis is in the title is awesome. (The beginning, get it? he.)Click for Synopsis
Blanca has never been online and doesn’t even know how to text. Her lack of a virtual footprint makes her extremely valuable, and upon graduation, Blanca and those like her are sold to the highest bidders.
Blanca is purchased by Cal McNeal, who uses her to achieve personal gain. But the McNeals are soon horrified by just how obedient and non-defiant Blanca is. All those mind-numbing years locked away from society have made her mind almost impenetrable.
By the time Blanca is ready to think for herself, she is trapped. Her only chance of escape is to go online.
