What’s In a Name 2017: Wrap Up Post


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

A building 

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.

    1. Thanks, Cath – I enjoy doing this challenge, what I read seems to fall naturally into the categories! Now I’ve just go the Mount TBR one, which I’ve been neglecting a bi this year.


  1. Well done, Margaret! I am impressed! This is one of those really inventive challenges, I think. Perhaps some year I’ll dip my toe in…
