The rules were to read one book in each of the following categories in 2012. (The list of categories is taken directly from the Beth Fish Reads blog.)
- A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title: Elizabeth Chadwick, The Marsh King’s Daughter
- A book with something you’d see in the sky in the title: Sharon Shinn, Dark Moon Defender
- A book with a creepy crawly in the title: Jean Webster, Daddy-Long-Legs
- A book with a type of house in the title: Natasha Solomons, The House at Tyneford
- A book with something you’d carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title: Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book
- A book with a something you’d find on a calendar in the title: Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days
I love challenges that involve the titles of books; they provide a chance to get creative and read a variety of different genres and styles. If there’s a What’s in a Name 6, I’ll definitely sign up!
