What's in a Name Challenge Completed for 2009


I joined the What's in a Name Challenge for 2009 and it was a lot of fun, not to mention one of the challenges that I actually finished, although I was scrambling for the last book with a medical condition.  I finally decided that Her Fearful Symmetry would have to do for this selection, thinking that phobias are considered a medical condition and all.  That's what I'm going with anyway!  Here were the books that I read for this challenge:

1. A book with a "profession" in its title
The Last Queen by C.W. Gortner--Completed 5/10/2009

2. A book with a "time of day" in its title.
The Darkest Evenening of the Year by Dean Koontz--Completed 4/20/09

3. A book with a "relative" in its title.
Two Brothers: One North, One South by David H. Jones--Completed 6/16/2009

4. A book with a "body part" in its title.
BoneMan's Daughters by Ted Dekker--Completed 9/15/2009

5. A book with a "building" in its title.
Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace One School at a Time by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin--Completed 10/3/2009

6. A book with a "medical condition" in its title.
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger--Completed 12/10/2009

You should be able to click on the title to see my review.   I will tell you that my favorites out of these books were The Last Queen and Three Cups of Tea.  Now I need to get ready for next year's challenge!
