What's in a Name? 2

I was a dismal failure with this year's What's in a Name? challenge, hosted by Annie, completing just two of the six books. But Annie is at it again for 2009, and I'm going to give it another try.

The six selections for the challenge must again contain a specific element in the title (but these are different elements than for 2008):

  • A book with a profession in its title

  • A book with a time of day in its title

  • A book with a relative in its title

  • A book with a body part in its title

  • A book with a building in its title

  • A book with a medical condition in its title

These are my tentative picks:
  • The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad

  • Scrambled Eggs at Midnight by Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler

  • Summer Sisters by Judy Blume
    or The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

  • Piece of My Heart by Peter Robinson
    or I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron

  • House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III

  • Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson


  1. Great list! Good luck with this year's challenge!


  2. This is another one I am considering doing this year. I didn't do well with challenges this year, but I am confident that I can do better this next year. :-)

  3. Lezlie: good luck to you too!

    Literary Feline: me too! :o)
