The What's in a Name Challenge (5) hosted by Beth Fish Reads requires choosing books that fit a particular themes.
A book featuring a topographical feature - Jellicoe Road, Melina Marchetta. This book is just raw & emotional. It's sad & heart-wrenching but at the same time, touching and sweet. There's heart-ache & loss, but also the developing of new friendships & love. (Amazon| Goodreads)
A book with something you'd see in the sky in the title - Graffiti Moon, Cath Crowley. The story is beyond beautiful - funny, sad, romantic, cute, deep & meaningful, all at the same time. (Amazon| Goodreads)
A type of house in the title - The Kingdom of Gods, N.K. Jemisin. This book was just the right amount of crazy, and I loved it! The characters are deep, complex, and intense; plus, the World building is crazy good - gods, godlings, power, magic, people who have it and have abused it, and people who want it and more. (Amazon| Goodreads)
A book with something you'd carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title - The Knife of Never Letting Go, Patrick Ness. Definitely A+ for the interesting concept - everyone can hear each others thoughts - and the book was intriguing, suspenseful at times & the plot moved along at a fast pace. (Amazon| Goodreads).
A book that has something you'd find on a calendar in the title - Radiant Days, Michael A. FitzGerald. The strength of this novel is definitely it's vivid description of Hungary & Croatia, as well as the depth of all the characters - flaws & all. (Amazon| Goodreads)
