CHALLENGE: What's in a Name 3

I'm gonna try the 2010 "What's in a Name 3", even though I probably won't complete this year's challenge. Try, try again!

The 3rd installment of the What's in a Name challenge is being hosted by Beth Fish Reads. Here's how it works...

Between January 1 and December 31, 2010, read one book in each of the following categories:
  1. A book with a food in the title: Clockwork Orange, Grapes of Wrath, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (I'm doing Obama's Blackberry by Kasper Hauser)
  2. A book with a body of water in the title: A River Runs through It, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, The Lake House (I'm thinking Dead Sea by Brian Keene)
  3. A book with a title (queen, president) in the title: The Murder of King Tut, The Count of Monte Cristo, Lady Susan (I'm thinking Godmother by Carolyn Turgeon, like "Godfather")
  4. A book with a plant in the title: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Wind in the Willows, The Name of the Rose (I've got Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See)
  5. A book with a place name (city, country) in the title: Out of Africa; London; Between, Georgia (My pick is Winter Haven by Athol Dickson)
  6. A book with a music term in the title: Song of Solomon, Ragtime, The Piano Teacher (I'm thinking The Measure of a Lady by Deanne Gist)
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.

Other Things to Know
  • Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
  • Books may overlap other challenges.
  • Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category.
  • Creativity for matching the categories is allowed.
  • You do not have to make a list of books before hand.
  • You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.
  • There will be a single prize at the end of the challenge. Readers who complete the challenge and write up a wrap-up post (or wrap-up comment) are eligible.

Welcome to the challenge! The good news about challenges is that there are no challenge police, so do your best and if you get distracted and don't finish, so what?

I love your titles and I especially like the ones for the music term and the title. Good going!
