Part One Of My Challenge Complete….’What’s In A Name’ 2011

I am only going to be taking on the one challenge this year, as my available time for reading is quite limited and I can fully appreciate the committment necessary for completing the marathon amounts of reading needed for some of the various challenges out there, much as I would love to participate…..

I have decided to crack on with my challenge as quickly as possible, to give myself a fighting chance of completing and enjoying it in a stress-free way, so here is my first category offering …..
No, I couldn’t be normal, start with number 1 and complete them in sequence
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. When she decided to give up on being the host, ‘Beth Fish Reads’ took over the challenge. She credits this challenge with being one of the prime reasons for her becoming a blogger, so she is thrilled to be it’s new host.
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:
  2. A book with jewelry or a gem in the title:  
  3. A book with a size in the title:
  4. A book with travel or movement in the title:  ‘The High Flyer’ by Susan Howatch….. Click here to read my thoughts on this book.
  5. A book with evil in the title:
  6. A book with a life-stage in the title

One down, five to go…..but at least I have all the books picked out and waiting in line, the order I read them in does depend on my mood though!!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • I’m still only about halfway throught my first book for this challenge (thought I have already read one for my Foodie one) so well done you! 🙂

  • HI Violet and Cath,

    That’s why I can only contemplate taking part in one challenge at a time.

    If I know I have something like a challenge started, I feel stressed about getting it finished, so now I won’t read any other books until I have completed those for the challenge.

    I’m like that about pretty much everything, even down to jobs around the house.

    Silly I know, but I have always been like it.

  • Hi Chris,

    Is that the book by Diane Setterfield?

    If it is, the synopsis sounds really intriguing. When you have finished it, let me know if it is one I should be adding to my TBR pile.

  • Hi Yvonne,
    You are right, it is the Diane Setterfield book. I have just finished and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ll leave it for you to read and review here, but just to let you know; it’s a real page turner, and once you get past about half way, be prepared to stay up all night because you won’t want to put it down! One of the best I’ve read in ages!
