The 2017 What’s in a Name? Challenge

This is my favorite Reading Challenge and the one I have done every year since it first started.

The Tenth Annual What’s in a Name Challenge

What's In A Name 2017

What’s In A Name 2017

Charlie at The Worm Hole hosts this one.

For the What’s in a Name Challenge participants are asked to read books whose titles fit a selection of categories. I typically end up looking for a book in December to fit that one tricky category that seems to come up almost every year. This year I completed the challenge before the end of May. I think that’s the earliest I’ve ever completed this annual challenge

Here are the 2017 categories and the books I read:
