Laura Lulu (LauraLulu) | 1603 comments Duration: One year from the date you start the challenge
Non Paranormals allowed?: Yes, you can use up to 3 non-paranormal books
Updates: Please add a new post with your updates. What I like to do for bigger yearly challenges like this is post a new update every 3 books or so, but you can do it however you like.
_____________________________________________________________________

I love challenges where we have to go on a little scavenger hunt through our TBR to find books that fit. This one is a TITLE search challenge--it's not based on finding pictures on the cover, but finding words in the title of the book.

But instead of giving you specific words to search for, we're going to do categories. I've listed a bunch of examples, but you're not limited to those--use your imagination and find words that fit the categories.

The duration of this challenge will be one year from your start date. So whenever you decide to start, you will have one year to complete it. Please post your dates with your list.

You may use anthologies & rereads, and while most should be along the paranormal/fantasy theme, I won't smack you upside the head if you throw one or two non-paranormals in there. :)

Also, if you are having a hard time with a category, you many use the series name if it is printed on the cover of the book. Everyone can do that for up to 3 categories.

In the TITLE of a book, find a word that fits the below categories:

***items below in italics are just suggestions from me, use them or come up with new ones, I just wanted to give examples and I got carried away. :)

1. Color don't forget the good ones like crimson & indigo

2. Number one, two, three, as well as once, twice, first, second

3. Things That Grow flower, tree, rose, orchid, garden, lily, forest, seed, thorn, ivy

4. 4 Seasons spring, summer, fall, autumn, winter

5. First Name Dick, Tom, Harry, Harriet

6. Places city, state, country, land, town, empire, kingdom, world OR the proper name of a city, state or country (NY, London)

7. Body Part heart, eye, hand, bone, skin, mind, foot

8. Weapon knife, sword, arrow, dart, poison, blade, razor

9. Body of Water sea, ocean, river, lake, pond, bayou

10. Form of Water ice, fog, rain, snow, water, mist

11. Product of Fire heat, smoke, fire, burn, flames, light, ash, blaze

12. Heavenly Body sun, moon, star

13. Architecture castle, house, tower, bridge, gate

14. 5 Senses sight, sound, touch, scent, taste

15. Royal Title king, queen, princess, duke

16. Family Member brother, daughter, mother

17. 4 Elements fire, earth, air/wind, water

18. Time of Day morning, noon, night, evening, midnight, twilight, dusk, dawn

19. Metal gold, silver, bronze, iron, steel

20. Emotion/Feeling love, hate, pride, passion, desire, fear, envy

21. Animal/Insect dog, cat, wolf, tiger, bird, spider, fox, crow, goose, snake

22. Something to Read book, tale, story

23. Gender Identifier boy, girl, man, woman, wife, husband, lady

24. Paranormal Being vampire, demon, angel, succubus, ghost, zombie, devil, unicorn, dragon

GET YOUR CHALLENGE ON.

Mary: Harry Dresden's Love Slave (HarryDresdensLoveSlave) | 2193 comments OK I think I can come up with something for most of these.

I'm not starting until 8/15 because all my books are packed up. If I manage to read something that fits before then, I'll adjust my date.


message 11: by Fran (new)

Fran I really like this one! I am in but not sure when I will start- will work on my list


message 12: by AH (new)

AH | 2271 comments I couldn't find a book with a weapon title either.


Mary: Harry Dresden's Love Slave (HarryDresdensLoveSlave) | 2193 comments Would flame/fire count as a weapon if the main character of said book can create and throw flame through magic?


message 14: by Fran (new)

Fran If the title of the book is- Master of Surrender (Blood Sword Legacy Book 1) is it ok if the weapon is in the parenthesis? Actually, I checked the cover and it says Blood Sword Legacy in small print under Master of Surrender so I think that should be ok?


Master of Surrender by Karin Tabke


message 15: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (LauraLulu) | 1603 comments Awesome list Sallie! I love how you fit a bunch of Kitty books into the categories. :)

Judithe, let's post new updates--then I won't miss anything.

If you're having a hard time with a category, you can use the series name if it's printed on the book cover.

I'll add this stuff to the original post. :)

Great, thanks Laura Lulu!


Mary: Harry Dresden's Love Slave (HarryDresdensLoveSlave) | 2193 comments Well that solves my weapon thing becuase I have Master of Surrender.

I think I might have Sword of Darkness in my TBR. I'll have to check. It might just be on my PBS Reminder List.


Literary Ames {Against GR Censorship} (amyorames) | 1854 comments Any suggestions for city/state/country and architecture? These are the only ones I'm stuck on.

glass houses #1 in the morganville vampire series would work


message 23: by Mary: Harry Dresden's Love Slave (last edited Jul 31, 2010 02:35PM) (new)

Mary: Harry Dresden's Love Slave (HarryDresdensLoveSlave) | 2193 comments I'm not seeing city/state/country on the list. I just see architecture. Darn-I don't think I have anything with an architecture word in the title. Maybe.

Does the word City itself count?

Duh I see it on the list now. I have a series of mysteries with mostly French cities in the title. Not paranormal but one will do if I need it.


Mary: Harry Dresden's Love Slave (HarryDresdensLoveSlave) | 2193 comments Oh Poison, I have Poison Study. I suppose that is a weapon.


message 25: by Fran (last edited Jul 31, 2010 02:50PM) (new)

Fran Wolf at the Door by Christine Warren Wolf at the Door (The Others, #1) by Christine Warren

Safe Harbor by Christine Feehan Safe Harbor (Drake Sisters, #5) by Christine Feehan

There are a lot with the word Grave in the title if we are allowed to use Grave for a structure


Literary Ames {Against GR Censorship} (amyorames) | 1854 comments Thanks girls but I've read City of Bones and Glass Houses but Sallie you reminded me about Ghost Town coming out in November, is this one good enough for the city/state/country category or does it have to be a name? If it does, I have The Merchant of Venice.


Literary Ames {Against GR Censorship} (amyorames) | 1854 comments Fran, I've noticed "grave" as being popular as I was going through my unread books. I even have a couple as options for some of the categories of this challenge.

Laura Lulu (LauraLulu) | 1603 comments Ooh...awesome lists! I love seeing what everyone else comes up with.

Charlotte--you are starting soooo many of my fave series--Chicagoland Vampires, Forest of Hands & Teeth, Harry Dresden, Cassie Palmer & Black Jewels. I got excited for you just reading your list. :)

And Charlotte, you can use Storm for a name, but only if it is actually someone's name in the book. Lol.

Mary--yep, harvests grow. :)

For the City/State/Country category, I had originally meant the proper name (NY, London, etc) but, after looking around for some that fit, it's slim pickins. So let's also use the actual words too--city, state & country, as well as town, land, empire, kingdom, etc.

I made the changes to the original post, and I changed the name of the City/State/Country category to "Places". :)

Now I'm off to find ideas for C/S/C, architecture & first names. :)

So let's also use the actual words too--city, state & country, as well as town, land, empire, kingdom, etc.

You don't have to tell me that... I have to create a list of the ones I am in and durations and such... I was trying to organize them all but it has gotten out of hand LOL. I HAVE found one for the Product of Fire category... It is a series name, but the name is in big print on the cover image.

message 49: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (LauraLulu) | 1603 comments I found a few more words for the categories as I was going through my bookshelf. I added them to the original post, but here they are:

Things that grow - orchid, garden, seed, thorn, lily, ivy, forest

Animals - fox, crow, goose, snake

Weapons - razor, blade

And 2 examples more for architecture-
Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, #3) by Charlaine Harris Dime Store Magic (Women of the Otherworld, #3) by Kelley Armstrong

I'll go back later and edit my posts with examples of architecture, animals & weapons to add the new ones I found, and I'll post the list of books with 1st names. But right now, my in-laws are going to be here any minute for dinner, so I gotta hit it. Just wanted to jump in for a minute with some of the stuff I found. :)

Later gators.
