What's in a Name 2014

Hosted this year by Charlie @ The Worm Hole
I participated for the first time in 2013 and I thought it was neat. So I'm going to try it again for 2014.

The challenge runs from January 1st to December 31st, 2014.

The categories (examples of books you could choose are in brackets):

  • A reference to time (Eleven Minutes, Before Ever After)
  • A position of royalty (The People’s Queen, The Last Empress, The Curse Of The Pharaoh)
  • A number written in letters (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, A Tale Of Two Cities)
  • A forename or names (Rebecca, Eleanor & Park, The Unfinished Work Of Elizabeth D.)
  • A type or element of weather (Gone With The Wind, Red Earth Pouring Rain)

  • Extra information

    • Books can be any format (print, audio, ebook).
    • It’s preferred that the books don’t overlap with other challenges, but not a requirement at all.
    • Books cannot overlap categories (for instance my first example, Eleven Minutes, could be used for category 1 or 3 but not both).
    • Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed, it’s encouraged!
    • You don’t have to make your list of books beforehand, you can choose them as you go.
    • You don’t have to read your chosen books in any particular order.

    My reads:
     1. A reference to time: Eve of Awakening by Alisa Hope Wagner 4 stars
    2. A position of royalty:
    3. A number written in letters: A Thousand Perfect Things by Kay Kenyon 3 stars
    4. A forename or names: Layla's Gale by Nicole Pouchet 3 stars
    5. A type or element of weather: A Drop of Water by Walter Wick 5 stars
