What’s In a Name a.k.a. read some more of my TBR

The What’s in a Name challenge is hosted by ‘Beth Fish’ and it’s another challenge I will be tackling in 2011 because I can do it from my TBR (yes I know this is a recurring theme but I need all the prompting I can get to read the stuff I already own).

To complete this challenge during the year I need to read 1 book in each of the following categories and I have listed the books which my TBR offers up

A book with a number in the title: Box 21 by Anders Roslund & Borge Hellstrom or The 19th Wife by David Ebershof

A book with jewelry or a gem in the title: Diamonds for the Dead by Alan Orloff

A book with a size in the title: At Close Quarters by Eugenio Fuentes

A book with travel or movement in the title: A Walk in the Dark by Gianrico Carofiglio or The Riddle of the Third Mile by Colin Dexter. If I stretch the idea of movement how about The Bishop Goes to University by Andrew M Greely?

A book with evil in the title: Evil Intent by Kate Charles

A book with a life stage in the title: Kiss of Death by P D Martin or Appetite for Death by Janet Laurence or And Hope to Die by J M Calder or Death Mask by Kathryn Fox (and no I didn’t have any other, happier life stages available, just death)

  1. Bernadette – Sounds like you have some fine titles there! What I like about them is that you’ve got a nice variety. I really look forward to reading what you think of them.

    Interesting book challenge. Will wait to read the reviews here, before embarking on new challenges as I’m challenged enough with 2011 reading plans.
    Yes, death does seem to be a recurrent theme in crime fiction, rather than birth or the stages of life…
