My 2018 What's in a Name Reading Challenge Sign-up Post

The What’s In A Name challenge, originally started by Annie, handed to Beth Fish Reads, and now continued with Charlie at The Worm Hole.  Click the button to go to the sign up page.

Choose one book from each of the following categories:

1.  The word 'the' is used twice in the title.
2.  A fruit or vegetable
3.  A shape.
4.  A title that begins with "Z".
5.  A nationality
6.  A season

Here are my choices to give you an idea:

1.  The Clue of the Twisted Candle by Edgar Wallace
(There were actually multiple covers, as the book was originally published in the 1st half of the 20th century, but I liked this one best!)

2.  Strawberry Murder by Carol Durand

3.  Circled Heart by Karen J. Hadley

4.  Z-Burbia by Jake Bible

5.  Scottish Rite by Stephen Penner

6.  Ladd Springs by Dianne Venetta

Every one of these comes from the TBR on my Kindle, from 2014 - 2017.  Yes *groan* I have TBRs from years ago. *sigh*

Right now the links in the book titles go to the book's GoodReads' page.  After they are read and reviewed the link will be changed to the review post.

Suggestions for selections fitting the categories not listed here are definitely encouraged.  You might just help another reader fill up his or her list!  Karma applies.

  1. You are not alone, I have books still on my Kindle since 2011. I need to quit buying and just read the one's I have. Good luck on your challenge, looks like some great books. Enjoy your day.

  2. Loved seeing how all your titles match up to the five criteria, well chosen and to think you actually had them on your TBR shelf.
