Olá everyone! As you read this, I’m currently in Rio de Janiero cheering on athletes from around the World as they compete in the 2016 Paralympic Games. Prior to leaving for Rio, I did a lot of research about the Olympics and the Paralympics, which included finally figuring out why the Olympic logo was five different colored rings (five rings = five inhabited parts of the world that had athletes competing at the 1920 games, colors (including the white background) = at least one of the colors appears on each existing flag across the World in 1920). Due to my one track mind, which usually goes back to what I love most, aka reading, learning about the colors got me thinking about books that included colors as part of their title. Thanks to Goodreads, I quickly realized that I had at least one book on my TBR list for each of the colors of the Olympic rings! How odd.
Anyways, in an attempt to keep posting even while I’m out and about being a World traveler, below are the books that I found to match the Olympic ring colors! Let me know if you’ve read any of them, and if I should be prioritizing these!
Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland
The whole series, really.
Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige
Again, the whole Dorothy Must Die series is on my list.
Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick
I’ve heard such mixed reviews about this one, which is why I haven’t picked it up yet.
Okay I feel the need to talk about this one a bit. To be transparent, this would actually be a re-read. This was part of the curriculum in my 12th grade English class. Bits and pieces have stuck with me (probably because the day we started reading it, my teacher LITERALLY dressed up as a green knight and walked into class, I mean how does that not stick with you?), but I can’t remember all of the details and I really want to.
As Red As Blood by Salla Simukka
Hopefully I like this enough to pick up the rest of the series.
