Today I completed the What’s in a Name 5 challenge, hosted by Beth Fish Reads.
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!
