What's in a Name Challenge


The What's in a Name 4 Challenge is hosted by Beth at Beth Fish Reads

Rules:
Between January 1 and December 31, 2011, read one book in each of the following categories:
  1. A book with a number in the title: First to Die, Seven Up, Thirteen Reasons Why
  2. A book with jewelry or a gem in the title: Diamond Ruby, Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Opal Deception
  3. A book with a size in the title: Wide Sargasso Sea, Small Wars, Little Bee
  4. A book with travel or movement in the title: Dead Witch Walking, Crawling with Zombies, Time Traveler's Wife
  5. A book with evil in the title: Bad Marie, Fallen, Wicked Lovely
  6. A book with a life stage in the title: No Country for Old Men, Brideshead Revisited, Bog Child
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.
  • 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.
My Thoughts:
I've scanned my TBR list and have books that I am considering reading for this challenge. I've assigned myself one topic every other month to keep myself on track.
  • Born to Run by McDougal (travel or movement)
  • Born Under a Million Shadows by Busfield or Nineteen Minutes by Picoult (number)
  • By the Time You Read this I'll be Dead by Peters (stage of life)
  • Curse of the Good Girl by Simmons (evil)
  • I still need books for "jewelry/gem" and "size"
