Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

I’m keeping my challenges light this year and only participating in a few of them – my favorites.

What's In a Name Reading Challenge Button

Beth Fish Read’s What’s in a Name 4 Challenge. This was an absolute blast last year, as it allowed me to read what I wanted while checking to see if it fit into one of the chosen categories. This year’s categories are as follows:

1. A book with a number in the title – Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O’Rourk Dowell
2. A book with jewelry or a gem in the title – Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor
3. A book with a size in the title – A Small Death in the Great Glen by A. D. Scott
4. A book with travel or movement in the title – Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekkanen
5. A book with evil in the title – Original Sins by Peg Kingman; The Poison Eaters by Holly Black
6. A book with a life stage in the title – The Death Instinct by Jed Rubenfeld
