The Color Coded Reading Challenge 2018 - My Sign-Up

I love the Color Coded Reading Challenge and am back this year, using the TBR shelf exclusively. Yay for that!

Bev at My Reader's Block is a friendly and efficient hostess who's also an avid and accomplished reader, so if you're so inclined, join in for some extra incentive and whole lot of inspiration!

The rules (posted here) are easy to follow. Basically, you read a book with any shade of the required colors either in the title or featured prominently on the cover. You also get two "freebies" of your own choice: a color that's not on the list and a color that's implied (rainbow, spectrum, etc.). 

Colors, here we come!

Blue: Flight Behavior - Barbara Kingsolver (Orion Book Award finalist) (review)
Red: The Boat to Redemption - Su Tong (Asian Literary Prize) (review)
Yellow: Something to Answer For - P.H. Newby (Booker Prize) Substitute: A Travel Guide for Reckless Hearts: Stories - N.M. Kelby (Florida Book Award) (review)
Green: The Garden of Evening Mists - Tan Twan Eng (Asian Literary Prize) (review)
Brown: The Body Artist - Don DeLillo (review)
Black: Lincoln in the Bardo - George Saunders (Booker Prize) Substitute: The Road - Cormac McCarthy) (Pulitzer Prize) Substitute: Darkness Visible: A Memoir of Madness - William Styron (review)
White: The Finkler Question - Howard Jacobson (Booker Prize) (review)
Any other color: Orange: Three Sisters - Bi Feiyu (Asian Literary Prize) (review)
Implied color: Light: All the Light We Cannot See - Anthony Doerr (Pulitzer) Substitute: The Light Around the Body - Robert Bly (National Book Award for Poetry) (light is all the colors, get it?) (review)
