“What’s in a Name?” Challenge

>> Thursday, December 20, 2007


The What’s in a Name Challenge, hosted by Annie looked like fun, so I’m signing up! The time frame is generous -- 6 books over 12 months (January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008), so it’s not too overwhelming to work into my challenge plans.

The Challenge:

Choose one book from each of the following categories.

1. A book with a color in its title. Examples might include: The Amber Spyglass, The Red Pony, Blue Blood

2. A book with an animal in its title. Examples might include: The Hound of the Baskervilles, To Kill a Mockingbird, Julie of the Wolves

3. A book with a first name in its title. Examples might include: Jane Eyre, the Harry Potter books, Anne of Green Gables

4. A book with a place in its title. Examples might include: From Russia with Love, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Out of Africa

5. A book with a weather event in its title. Examples might include: The Snows of Kilimanjaro, Red Storm Rising, Tornado Alley

6. A book with a plant in its title. Examples might include: Where the Red Fern Grows, The Name of the Rose, Flowers for Algernon

--You may overlap books with other challenges, but please don't use the same book for more than one category. (For example, you can use The Red Pony for either a "color" book or an "animal" book, but not for both.)


These are the books I’ve chosen:

  1. A book with a color in its title: Leavin' Trunk Blues by Ace Atkins
  2. A book with an animal in its title: The Monkey's Raincoat by Robert Crais
  3. A book with a first name in its title: Peter the Great by Robert Massie
  4. A book with a place in its title: London Bridges by James Patterson
  5. A book with a weather event in its title: Black Wind by Clive Cussler
  6. A book with a plant in its title: Jasmine Moon Murder by Laura Childs
