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* The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski.
What colors do I associate with the book?
I’m not sure I really pinpointed the exact colors that I had intended here, but this was the best I could do. Stupid hex picker! This is actually another one that I can’t really understand why they showed up – but they just did. I really thought I could explain why, but
Does the cover match my colors?
Well, I got the pink! Despite the fact that my colors don’t really fit in with the cover, I still think it’s perfect for the entire story. Zero qualms about the whole thing, even the puffy dress! Oh hey look she’s holding a dagger – never saw that before. So, yes, keep the cover = final verdict.
