What’s In a Name? 2021

This year I am planning to take part in just a few Reading Challenges and this is one of them:

The What’s In A Name Challenge is being hosted again for 2021 by Andrea at Carolina Book Nook.  I didn’t take part last year, after doing it for several years, but I fancy taking part this year.

The challenge runs from 1st January 2021 to 31st December 2021. You can sign up any time, but can only count books 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.

I’ve picked out some possibilities for the categories, from my TBR books. There are others I could choose, so this is just a starting list – I may read other books instead.

‘One’ or ‘1’                                The One I Was by Eliza Graham

Repeated word                       Sing, Jess, Sing by Tricia Coxon

Reference to outer space    Blue Moon by Lee Child

Possessive noun                     Child’s Play by Reginald Hill

Botanical word                       Black Water Lilies by Michel Bussi

Article of clothing                 The Dressmaker by Beryl Bainbridge

  1. That’s a very creative meme, Margaret. And I like your choices, too. In my opinion, you can’t go far wrong with Reginald Hill. And Beryl Bainbridge wrote some excellent psychological suspense. I hope you’ll enjoy participating.


  2. This sounds like so much fun! I was thinking of doing something similar to the title (What’s in a name?) but then only read books with actual names in the title. That can be fun too! Maybe next year.

    Like your choices so far, hope they work out for you!!

    Have a wonderful week ahead.
