Adding a little comment that this wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. I wasn’t reading carefully enough and totally skipped over the whole dominant color thing, so I’m trying this again. Good thing I realized it as I was linking up my reviews! I did have to ask Bev if she would please delete a couple of my links so I can add different ones there. Most of the time, a cozy mystery has so many colors on the page, it’s hard to tell if one is even dominant, but I’ll be a little more observant from here on! That’s why I bolded some of the instructions, mainly for my benefit and reminders! 😉
Another challenge run by Bev from My Reader’s Block. Her sign-up page is My Reader’s Block Color Coded Challenge 2019. This one seemed so easy, I couldn’t possibly resist! It runs from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019 just like all the others except for I Spy.
From her blog to explain a little more: “Once again the categories will be more open–the color may either be named in the title or it may appear as the dominant color for the cover of the book. For “implies color” the image implying cover should dominate the cover.”
Here’s what I’ll be reading and adding the books below as I read them:
