What's In A Name 5 Challenge

Looking forward to participating in this challenge again, so very happy that Beth Fish Reads decided to host it once again. And there are exciting, new categories for 2012!

Between January 1 and December 31, 2012, read one book in each of the following categories:

  1. A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title: Black Hills, Purgatory Ridge, Emily of Deep Valley
  2. A book with something you'd see in the sky in the title: Moon Called, Seeing Stars, Cloud Atlas
  3. A book with a creepy crawly in the title: Little Bee, Spider Bones, The Witches of Worm
  4. A book with a type of house in the title: The Glass Castle, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, Ape House
  5. A book with something you'd carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title: Sarah's Key, The Scarlet Letter, Devlin Diary
  6. A book with a something you'd find on a calendar in the title: Day of the Jackal, Elegy for April, Freaky Friday, Year of Magical Thinking
(The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.)

Other Things to Know:

  • Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
  • Books may overlap other challenges.
  • Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category.
  • Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed but encouraged.
  • You do not have to make a list of books before hand.
  • You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.

Really like the categories, and looking forward to completing this one!

  1. This is such a creative reading challenge. Everyone in the blogosphere seems to be gearing up for next year's challenges. I feel like that slacker in the class :)

  2. Look at the bright side - if you don't sign up for challenges, then you won't keep failing like I do! But hope springs eternal! :)
