What's in a Name 2020 Reading Challenge

What's in a Name 2020 Reading Challenge

I have done this challenge in 2014 and have since followed the titles of books I read in my statistics

So, when the Canadian Bookworm librarians reminded me of it here, I decided I'll give it another go, especially since this year there are some totally different challenges.

Carolina from carolinabooknook came up with some brilliant ideas. I have no ideas whether I will find books that fit all the challenges but I'll give it a try.

This year the six things to have in a book title are:
1.    An ampersand - & (e.g. Blanca & Roja, Rot & Ruin)
2.    An antonym (e.g Big Little Lies, Wicked Saints)
3.    4 letters or less (e.g Feed, Vox)
4.    A given/first name (e.g. Tess of the Road, Flowers for Algernon)
5.    Reference to children (e.g. Baby Proof, Children of Blood and Bone)
6.    One of the 4 natural elements - water, air, fire, earth (e.g. The River at Night, The Name of the Wind)

The challenge runs from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. You can sign up any time, but only count books that you read between those dates.

Read a book in any format (hard copy, ebook, audio) with a title that fits into each category.

Don’t use the same book for more than one category.

Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed, it’s encouraged!

You can choose your books as you go or make a list ahead of time. The book titles are just suggestions, we can read whatever book that fits the category.

Sign up up on Carolina's page.

And here are my books:
Category 1:
Category 2: 
Stendhal "The Red and the Black" (Le Rouge et le Noir) - 1830
Category 3:
Category 4: 
Undset, Sigrid "Kristin Lavransdatter" (Kristin Lavransdatter)
Category 5:
Category 6:
