What's In A Name Challenege

Here is a challenge for the new year I am very excited about.  First it clears 6 books off of my shelves at home so that I may take them to my shelves at school.  Second,  they will be some of the first books I read in the new year.  Come and join me.

Join Beth Fish @ Beth Fish Reads as she Hosts the What's In A Name Challenge 

Here's How It Works

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.
Other Things to Know

  • 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.

1.  A Book With a Number:  Thirteen Days to Midnight - Patrick Carman
2.  A Book With Jewelry or a Gem:  The Diamond of Darkhold - Jeanne DuPrau
