I’ve now completed the What’s In a Name Challenge 2017, hosted by Charlie at The Worm Hole. The challenge runs from January to December. During this time you choose a book to read from six categories.
These are the books I read, linked to my reviews.
A number in numbers
The 12.30 from Croydon by Freeman Wills Crofts – Golden Age crime fiction
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen and also Northanger Abbey by Val McDermid (joint post) – a classic and a contemporary take on Jane Austen’s novel
A title which has an ‘X’somewhere in it
A Place of Execution by Val McDermid – crime fiction
A compass direction
South Riding by Winifred Holtby – a modern classic
An item/items of cutlery
Our Spoons Came From Woolworths by Barbara Comyns – a modern classic
A title in which at least two words share the same first letter – alliteration!
A Death in the Dales by Frances Brody – crime fiction
I enjoyed them all, especially A Place of Execution and South Riding. My thanks to Charlie for hosting this challenge.
