What's in a Name 4 Challenge

Right, I signed up for another challenge last night.
If anyone else would like to join it go here, my dears.
Strong Heroine Reading Challenge 2011

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: First to Die, Seven Up, Thirteen Reasons Why
  2. A book with jewelry or a gem in the title: Diamond Ruby, Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Opal Deception
  3. A book with a size in the title: Wide Sargasso Sea, Small Wars, Little Bee
  4. A book with travel or movement in the title: Dead Witch Walking, Crawling with Zombies, Time Traveler's Wife
  5. A book with evil in the title: Bad Marie, Fallen, Wicked Lovely
  6. A book with a life stage in the title: No Country for Old Men, Brideshead Revisited, Bog Child
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.

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.

So far this is what my list is looking like - 
1. A book with a number in the title: Hull Zero Three by Greg Bear - I'm really looking forward to this one, it looks really readable.

2. A book with jewelry or a gem in the title: The Ruby in the Smoke (The first book in the Sally Lockhart series) by Philip Pullman

3. A book with a size in the title: The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard

4. A book with travel or movement in the title: The Kite Runner Novel by Khaled Hosseini
or The Memory of Running by Ron McLarty

5. A book with evil in the title: The Killer's Cousin by Nancy Werlin

6. A book with a life stage in the title: Old Man's War (the first book in the Old Man's War series) by John Scalzi or Bog Child by Siobhan Dowd
