Four years ago “What’s in a Name” was the very first challenge I signed up for via this blog. It was also the first challenge I completed.
It’s a lovely challenge, and of course I signed up for a second year. A third. And a fourth.
Thanks must go to Beth at Beth Fish Reads for acting as host once again.
I scanned my shelves for six books, with titles each of six categories. And then I read them.
- A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title:
In The Mountains by Elizabeth Von Arnim
- A book with something you’d see in the sky in the title:
The New Moon with the Old by Dodie Smith
- A book with a creepy crawly in the title:
Snake Ropes by Jess Richards
- A book with a type of house in the title:
The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie
- A book with something you’d carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title:
The Book of Summers by Emylia Hall
- A book with a something you’d find on a calendar in the title:
The Fortnight in September by R C Sheriff
It’s not the list I planned at the end of last year, but I’ve read six lovely books, and I am so pleased that I remembered to read ‘The Fortnight in September’ in September!
Woo hoo! Congratulations!
Well done! You must have had a fun time choosing titles to fit the bill.
This really does look like a challenge! I think I would find it hard to find books that fit every category. It would be fun trying though!
Congratulations on finishing the What’s in a Name challenge, Jane 🙂 I’ve still got a few books to go. I may have to exchange a few books, because some of the titles I selected are not books that I’d like to read right now… I like the titles that you chose!
