A few months ago, I posted about how I wish more authors wrote using color in their descriptions, since I attach emotions and even characters to color. After some discussion on the comment threads, particularly with Kelley @ Oh! The Books, I was pointed to something called synesthesia, and I have a type that connects emotions with colors. Every Wednesday, I’ll pick a book or character, and show a palette of the colors I see or associate with the book/character. Basically, imagine the saying, “I feel blue,” but applied to the entire color spectrum. Hopefully that makes sense!
This week’s Saturated Read is… *drumroll please* Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens.
What colors do I associate with the book?
To put it in a word: Autumn. It feels like Fall – kind of in hibernation, but still vivid and full of life. I feel like it sums up Alexi’s journey throughout the book – she’s dark browns and dying leaves at first, but then she starts embracing some of her color and wakes up and starts to heal into something brighter.
Does the cover match my colors?
YES OH MY GOD IT’S PERFECT ❤ There’s even some red in her hair. But yesssss it’s just flawless. A+ design!
