The What’s in a Name 6-Category Reading Challenge is hosted by Andrea at Carolina Book Nook. The image below will link to the Challenge Sign up Page.
I’m currently _100_% complete with books filling the following 2020 categories :
- An ampersand – & Delights & Shadows, by poet Ted Kooser
|Very good, very easy, lovely home-spun nostalgic poems. These poems show a careful awareness of every tiny detail.|
- An antonym = (Still yet possible: The Gateless Gate, perhaps Sweet Ruin)
Am offering up these lovelies as options – I defy you to correct me if you don’t think the titles suggest “opposite in meaning to another”:
(Bodies should stay buried!) * If I had to pick a favorite here, I would choose the Wilson.
- 4 letters or less = Vox or Oval: I read both! Between the 2 of these, I would have to recommend Oval, I guess.
- A given/first name = for TOB: Mary Toft by Dexter Palmer
I also read Olive, Again which fits this category. As would, … Loved Mary, adored Olive, quite satisfied with Duchess. Fleishman and Dorian, I pass.
- Reference to children = AS Byatt’s The Children’s Book or McEwan’s The Children Act. Both are still on my tbr, but how about this? Yes, I think GIRL in the title qualifies. UPDATED less than an hour later when I realized that I also attempted the Lost Children Archive! yes, attempted. These 2 squared off against each other in the TOB and somehow I forgot about DEFINITELY qualifies!
- One of the 4 natural elements – water, air, fire, earth = Likely, a TOB book; The Water Dancer would work and so would, On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous. I read both! I’d go with the Vuong.
Well, look at that. CHALLENGE COMPLETED.
More choices possible on my list in goodreads.
