What’s in a Name 5 Reading Challenge

I enjoyed so much this challenge in 2011, see my recap here, that I can’t resist joining again this year, plus the categories are really so much fun:

Here’s How It Works

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 something you’d find on a calendar in the title: Day of the Jackal, Elegy for April, Freaky Friday, Year of Magical Thinking

The above book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.

And here are now the books I have read:

Category 1: The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton

Category 2: Half of A Yellow Sun, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Category 3: Inner River, by Kyriacos C. Markides

Category 4: The House at Riverton, by Kate Morton

Category 5: Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate), by Amy Thomas

Category 6: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, by William Shakespeare

    • Really? look closely at your TBR, there could be some nice surprise. If you need some help with titles, let me know. This is actually only my 2nd year, but it’s probably the most creative of all the reading challenges I have run into
