Challenge Link-Up Post: Classic with a Color in the Title

Please link your reviews for your Classic with a Color in the Title here.  This is only for the Classic with a Color in the Title category. Examples include The Woman in White, Anne of Green Gables, The Red and the Black, etc. (Silver, gold, etc. also count).  

If you do not have a blog, or somewhere public on the internet where you post book reviews, please write your mini-review/thoughts in the comments section.  If you like, you can include the name of your blog and/or the title of the book in your link, like this: "Karen K. @ Books and Chocolate (The Black Tulip)."


  1. The Woman in White was the first book I have read by Wilkie Collins. I thoroughly enjoyed the convoluted plot, the method that Collins used to advance the plot, and the outstanding character development. I look forward to reading The Moonstone.

    1. Wilkie Collins is wonderful. I also enjoyed Armadale and No Name (Armadale has an especially convoluted plot, with four different characters named Armadale!) If you like Victorian sensation novels, I also recommend Mary Elizabeth Braddon, she wrote a ton of novels which are mostly out of print but easy to get free on Gutenberg and ibooks.

  2. My book for this prompt was White Nights, by Dostoyevsky… I read it in Spanish. I arrived to it because it was mentioned in After the Quake by Murakami. I don't know if it was because I was forced to read him in school, but I don't remember enjoying any Dostoyevsky like I did White Nights <3
