What's in a Name Four

Welcome to the fourth What's in a Name Challenge! This challenge was originated by a young blogger named Annie, who hosted it for two years.  Beth F. has been rocking as the host ever since.  Even though I am still working on last year's challenge, I am excited to try again for this year.

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: One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. I finished the book in April. You can find my review here.
  2. A book with jewelry or a gem in the title: The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I finished the book on March 18th; you can find my review here.
  3. A book with a size in the title: 
  4. A book with travel or movement in the title: Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. I finished the book in July. You can find my review here.
  5. A book with evil in the title: The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee. I finsihed the book on December 30th. You can find my review here
  6. A book with a life stage in the title:  Operating Instructions: A Journal of my Son's First Year by Anne Lammott You can find my review here

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.
