What's In a Name Challenge Wrap-Up Post

This one took me longer to finish that I expected. I had trouble with the "party or celebration" themed title, and nothing that fit came up in the normal course of my reading, so I finally had to go out looking for something.

What's In a Name Challenge (6th) for 2013

This challenge usually gets spread out over the year as I identify books that fit. Other rules they have are:
  • Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
  • Books may overlap other challenges.
  • Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category.
  • Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed but encouraged.
  • You do not have to make a list of books before hand.
  • You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.
