What's In A Name Six

I love the idea behind the What's in a Name challenge. Even though I have not completed the challenge for the last three years, I am trying again.  (Because I love the categories of previous years, I am keeping those posts on the challenge page to see if I can complete them) (Update--I used the first book I completed this year to complete What's in a Name Three!) Maybe 2013 will be a lucky year for challenge completion. 

Here's How It Works

Between January 1 and December 31, 2013, read one book in each of the following categories. My selections will appear after the category name as I finish reading: 

  1. A book with up or down (or equivalent) in the title: The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri  I completed the book on November 7, 2013. You can find my review here
  2. A book with something you'd find in your kitchen in the title: Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead as I think most kitchens have seating and arrangements of some kind. I finished the book on February 1, 2013. You can find my review here
  3. A book with a party or celebration in the title: 
  4. A book with fire (or equivalent) in the title: 
  5. A book with an emotion in the title: Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford as both bitter and sweet are emotions. I completed the book on April 23, 2013. You can find my review here
  6. A book with lost or found (or equivalent) in the title: Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. I finished the book on February 8, 2013. 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.
