What’s in a Name 6 Challenge Wrap-up

I’ve completed the What’s in a Name 6 Challenge at Beth Fish Reads!

2013 what's in a name 6

The goal was to read 6 books, one in each of the categories below. Here’s what I read:

  1. Up or down (or equivalent): Niccolò RISING by Dorothy Dunnett
  2. Something you’d find in your kitchen: The CRYSTAL Cave by Mary Stewart — I was thinking fancy crystal glassware here
  3. Party or celebration: The WEDDING of Zein by Tayeb Salih
  4. Fire (or equivalent): FIRE and Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones
  5. Emotion: LONESOME Dove by Larry McMurtry
  6. Lost or found (or equivalent): They FOUND Him Dead by Georgette Heyer

My favorite read for this challenge was probably Fire and Hemlock, although Lonesome Dove and The Wedding of Zein were also very good. On the other hand, I couldn’t stand Niccolò Rising! But I like this challenge because it’s completely based on titles rather than content, which is pretty unique among reading challenges. Hopefully it will continue next year, in which case I’ll most likely sign up!

      I tried to read the first Lymond book a few years ago, but I couldn’t get past the first couple chapters. Niccolo is the first Dunnett I’ve read in its entirety. I have to say, it’s not making me eager to try more of her books!
