Julie's List: What's in a Name 4 Challenge

Beth from Beth Fish Reads is hosting her annual What's In a Name Challenge and I signed up. This is the first challenge that I chose to do this year even if it's not the first I posted about.

Here's How It Works:
Between January 1 and December 31, 2011, read one book in each of the following categories:

A book with a number in the title: (e.g.) First to Die, Seven Up, Thirteen Reasons Why
A book with jewelry or a gem in the title: (e.g.) Diamond Ruby, Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Opal Deception
A book with a size in the title: (e.g.) Wide Sargasso Sea, Small Wars, Little Bee
A book with travel or movement in the title: (e.g.) Dead Witch Walking, Crawling with Zombies, Time Traveler's Wife
A book with evil in the title: (e.g.) Bad Marie, Fallen, Wicked Lovely
A book with a life stage in the title: (e.g.) No Country for Old Men, Brideshead Revisited, Bog Child
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.

Other Things to Know
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.

Of course, I immediately made my list! Here it is:

A book with jewelry or gem in the title: Forever Amber by Kathleen Windsor
A book with a number in the title: Nine Dragons by Michael Connelly
A book with size in the title: Long Lost by Harlan Coben - Reviewed on 6/13/11
A book with travel or movement in the title: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein -Reviewed 2/1/11
A book with Evil in the title: The Devil in the White City by Eric Larson
A book with a Life Stage in the title: American Wife by Curtis Sittenfield - Reviewed on 2/16/2011

Intrigued? Then run you butt over here and sign up!!

I will keep you updated on how I'm doing periodically throughout the challenge.
