What’s in a Name 2014 Ideas

I’m procrastinating from writing my APA Citation Lesson Plan…  This will only take a minute, right? I need a diversion.

I have gone through my goodreads.com tbr and checked 48 books that might fit the challenge.

I have also pulled books off my in house tbr shelf:


For TIME: Friday Night Lights by HG Bissinger, Any Given Day by Jessie Lee Brown Foveaux,  Anita Diamant’s Day After Night, or Washing Cars and Wasting Time by John C. Oliva.

For NUMBER in WORDS: (Quite surprised I didn’t have any books with the word “one” in the title!) Think of a Number by John Verdon

For NAME: Susan Vreeland’s Clara and Mr. Tiffany, The Importance of Being Oscar by Mark Nicholls, or Vernon God Little by DBC Pierre

For WEATHER: Wind, Sand & Stars by Antoine de Saint Exupéry or The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood

For ROYALTY: The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran or Queen Victoria by Cecil Woodham-Smith

I have also purchased a Sherlock Holmes story for my Kindle: The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle (99¢) which is the one I will most likely read for the NUMBER category.

Do you have any books to recommend either on this list or not that might fit the challenge and that I will totally fall for?

 I will be unplugging until Friday when my final project will be complete and I can untie the knots in my stomach. Yay school! Why do you stress me so?

  1. I think you have chosen a lot of great options here. I haven’t read it myself yet, but The Year of the Flood will work with both the weather and the time category (in case you need to be flexible). I plan on reading that soon so I can read MaddAddam asap. Just noticed that MaddAddam would also work for the name category!

  2. I’m pretty sure you read 11/22/63 by Stephen King right? And for weather, The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey is lovely. And for name, there are 8,000 Jane Austen take-offs that would fill the bill! :–)

    1. Actually, that King book wouldn’t work; the number has to be a word. 😉
      snow Child came up for a book club vote and I do know I want to read that one. thanks!

  3. I’ve got to get started figuring out what challenges I want to do for next year – or should I say “try?” Definitely this one!

  4. ‘Think of a Number’ – clever! I can offer another vote for The Snow Child, it’s a really good book.

    To answer your question, yes, it’s 5 categories. I realised I hadn’t included a sixth one a while after posting, so I thought it best to leave it at that this time around.

    Glad you’re joining us!
