THE COLOR PROJECT Review and Blog Tour!


I could not be more excited to be participating in this blog tour today. I absolutely adored The Color Project (see rave review below). This is one book that I will happily be pushing on everyone I know.

Wine Pairing

I paired The Color Project with this gorgeous Summer in a Bottle Rosé. The flowers on the label are a wonderful nod to Bee’s day job and passion. The flavor is sweet and scrumptious, just like Levi. And it’s such a vibrant and bright wine, which if very reminiscent of the tone of this wonderful, wonderful book!

Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name would feel like a stamp on forever. And that terrifies her.

When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee’s summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

For fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson, THE COLOR PROJECT is a story about the three great loves of life—family, friendship, and romance—and the bonds that withstand tragedy.


My Review


The Color Project is absolutely everything that I look for in a contemporary novel. With a fantastic main character, a beautiful story, and one seriously swoony book boyfriend, this is one summer release you absolutely cannot miss.

I fully expected to enjoy this book going into it, but I absolutely fell in love with it. I can’t wait for everyone to read about “The Color Project” itself, because it is such a beautiful, philanthropic concept and something I wish there was more of in this world of ours. It also happens to be run by the sweetest book boyfriend that I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. I just dare you to try read this book and not fall in love with Levi.

Bee is such a great main character. She is navigating her way through that challenging transition between teen to adulthood and trying to make all those major, life-altering decisions we’re confronted with during that time. Watching her discover who she really is and what she really wants was so much fun. She is a very relatable character and so charming. Reading this book from her perspective was an absolute joy.

Abrams also includes such strong depictions of families in this story. From Bee’s beautiful, loving family, who must face one of the most difficult things a family can be faced with, to Levi’s mostly absent and usual abrasive dad and his fun and affectionate mom, Abrams really does a great job of exploring the idea of what it truly means to be part of a family and all the wonderful and difficult emotions that come along with it.

This book made me laugh out loud, it made me cry, it made my sigh, and it made me smile. It packs all the feels, folks. And I just have to say that I 100% support Abrams’ use of glitter in this story. Glitter certainly contributes to a happier world in my opinion.

Bee just happens to be a book pusher, and so am I! So do yourself a favor, you guys, and READ. THIS. BOOK!

    …this sounds amazing. I’m so sold. I knew I wanted to read it ahead of time, but wowsies, I need to read it even more. Hmmmmmmmm…I’m definitely going to have to get my hands on the copy soon. And that wine is insanely gorgeous. I just want that bottle. Wonderful post, Krysti!!

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      I freaking loved it! Like I’m so sad tonight that I can’t read it anymore sad. I haven’t had that experience with a book in a while. The wine is GORGEOUS. Totally agree. Thanks, Mandy!!!

      • bookprincessreviews says:

        Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. That means that I need it even more then. I haven’t had that in a while too. Have you tasted that one yet? But you’re very welcome! <3

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        Oh my goodness, Mandy! The book boyfriend in this one is the sweetest ever! EVER. You will love him! So excited for you to read it! And I have! I’m always a little obsessed with rosé this time of year. Highly recommend that as well!

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        Hahaha! YES! I want you to read this book more than anyone else honestly, because I know you will love Levi. Levi is the best! All the characters are really. Ugh. So in love with this one!

      • bookprincessreviews says:

        AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Okay, I have three weeks to get my butt in gear and get this book on preorder because everything you are saying makes me want to read it so so so bad. I HAVEN’T HAD A BOOK HIT SWOONY PEAK IN SO LONG.

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        I cannot wait to chat about this book with you. I am actually dying to re-read it. I loved it so much.

      • bookprincessreviews says:

        That’s when you know it’s an amazing book – when you’re dying to re-read it all over again. So. Excitedddddddddddddddd for this. Does it rank in the best contemporary evers category?

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        EXACTLY! I feel like this book was written for you. You will LOVE it. It might rank number one. I feel like I need to think about it some more before saying that definitively, but it most definitely ranks.

      • bookprincessreviews says:

        *squeals* Number one is too much to handle. But yeah, there are a lot out there, so it’s a bit hard. XD Definitely must consult the great contemporaries. But this is amazing.

  2. jennanicolee says:

    Great review! I instantly added it to my Goodreads TBR list. I keep seeing it at Chapters and I always want to buy it…but I have SO many unfinished books!

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      This one is definitely one you don’t want to miss. I absolutely adored it. Like, I’m so sad that I don’t have it to read anymore tonight. I haven’t had an actual book hangover in a while!

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Thanks so much! I absolutely adored this book. I haven’t had a book hangover for a while, and I DEFINITELY have one after this one. I enjoyed reading it so, so much. And the wine is phenomenal too!

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      I love flowers on covers! It’s my favorite right now. It truly included all the elements that I like to see in a contemporary novel. Highly, highly recommend! ☺️

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Yes! I cannot recommend this one enough! And Book Nerd Addict does create some beautiful designs! I loved that tote!
