Challenge Complete: What's in a Name 5

Beth of BethFishReads hosted another round of the What's in a Name Challenge this year and I have just finished the course.  She comes up with six categories and it's up to us to find books that fit.  In fact, she urges us to get creative when choosing books to fit her themes.  Here are this year's categories and the books I read to complete the challenge:

  1. A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title: Black Hills, Purgatory Ridge, Emily of Deep Valley
  2. A book with something you'd see in the sky in the title: Moon Called, Seeing Stars, Cloud Atlas
  3. A book with a creepy crawly in the title: Little Bee, Spider Bones, The Witches of Worm
  4. A book with a type of house in the title: The Glass Castle, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, Ape House
  5. A book with something you'd carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title: Sarah's Key, The Scarlet Letter, Devlin Diary
  6. A book with a something you'd find on a calendar in the title: Day of the Jackal, Elegy for April, Freaky Friday, Year of Magical Thinking
