What’s In A Name Challenge

challenge1.gifOkay, after joining this challenge, I won’t join any more for the rest of the year. I hope. Maybe. But the challenge itself was tempting – it spans over a year (starting in January), and I only need to read six books throughout that year, and will hopefully be able to work it in with any other challenges I read. Hosted by Annie, this challenge requires that you read books with certain requirements in regards to the title (see details here. I don’t know exactly what books I’m going to read, but I’ve got a few potential ones. Of course, chances are I will change my mind about a good portion of them. :) Below are listed the requirements with potential books I may read for each of them. I would like to tie in some Canadian authors with this challenge, so if you have any to recommend, please let me know.

1. A book with a color in its title.
The Blue Girl by Charles de Lint
That Yellow Bastard by Frank Miller (I would have to read The Big Fat Kill before getting to this one)
Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz

2. A book with an animal in its title.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

3. A book with a first name in its title.
Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
The Betrayal of Arthur by Sara Douglass

4. A book with a place in its title.
London Calling by Edward Bloor

5. A book with a weather event in its title.
The Tempest by Shakespeare
Storm Front by Jim Butcher (Book 1 of the Dresden Files)

6. A book with a plant in its title.
The Masque of the Black Tulip by Laura Willig

    It’s such a fun challenge to think of books for. Here’s some Canadian titles off the top of my head
    animal – Owls in the Family, or The Dog who Wouldn’t Be, by Farley Mowatt

    names – Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland
    Larry’s Party by Carol Shields

  • Court

    raidergirl3 – I can’t believe I forgot about Farley Mowatt. Of course I’d have plenty of animal titles to add to my list! :)
