What's In a Name Wrap-Up for 2014

What's In a Name Challenge 2014 Wrap-Up Post


The challenge ran from January to December. During this time you chose a book to read from each of the following categories (examples of books you could choose are in brackets):
  1. A reference to time (Eleven Minutes, Before Ever After)
    Midnight in Europe by Alan Furst. Finished June 23.
  2. A position of royalty (The People’s Queen, The Last Empress, The Curse Of The Pharaoh)
    The Wood Queen by Karen Mahoney. Finished August 18
  3. A number written in letters (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, A Tale Of Two Cities)
    The Rule of Three by Eric Walters. Finished March 17
  4. A forename or names (Rebecca, Eleanor & Park, The Unfinished Work Of Elizabeth D.)
    Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. Finished January 18
  5. A type or element of weather (Gone With The Wind, Red Earth Pouring Rain)
    The Wind Is Not a River by Brian Payton. Finished March 25
This year started with only 5 categories.

But wait, a sixth category was added at the end of February:

6. A book with a school subject in the title. And yes, that does mean you can get creative and use a magical academic subject if you wish – Hogwarts is a school, after all.
Drawing Conclusions by Donna Leon. Finished January 20 [I know, I read it before the category was added, but hey the challenge is for the year, right!]

So I managed to finish this one, but that sixth one, I had to go back and look for one that fit.
