25.3. Coralie's task: Naming Things

Read two books.
Book 1 must have a name in the title or a word that you could use for a name.
Book 2 must be written by an author with that name. It can be the first, last or middle name of the author but the first book must have the entire name in the title. The word and the name must match exactly. The only variations allowed are possessives.

For example you could read The Magician King and a book by Stephen King or you could read Sophie's Choice and a book by Sophie Kinsella.

kiki (keekers) | 821 comments can't believe i'm the first one to ask a question?! :)

wondering if i could read Kafka on the Shore for book one, and something by Franz Kafka for book two? thanks for your help! :)

Fran | 736 comments I am thinking about Blank Slate Kate and Wolf Tales 11 by Kate Douglas.

Or I might use Grey's Awakening if I can use In Bed With The Boss, which has two different authors, one being Andrew Grey. Can I use an anthology if one of the authors meets the criteria for the challenge?

Yes, that would be fine.

Your first choice is fine.
A book with two authors works.
For an anthology, the relevant author should be a major part of the book.

Yes, either would work.

Kara (karaayako) Coralie, I just wanted to drop in and say that this is such a clever task, and it really made me think. I'll be reading Tess of the D'Urbervilles then The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen.
