What's in a Name 5: Topographical Feature

Here's the place to link up your reviews of books with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title.

If you don't have a blog or don't write reviews, please mark your progress in the comments.

If Mr. Linky ever disappears, just leave a comment or come back and link up later. Or email me (see contact icons in the sidebar) and I'll add your link when Mr. Linky is fixed.

Finished my first - hope "harbor" counts as a topographical feature! The review's on Goodreads, hopefully that works.

Oops! Sorry gave the wrong link first time. Hope Undertow is a topographical feature.

Brenda 1/17/12, 7:29 PM  

This is my first link up. Sand in the title, hope that would be considered topographical. Thanks, this is fun!

My topograhical feature is a "hill" -- Wildflower Hill by Kimberley Freeman. One down, on to the next one! Love this challenge!

My second book for this challenge, and this one was the toughest - I don't have a lot of books with topographical features in the title. But this one definitely fits the bill: The Vesuvius Club, by Mark Gatiss. After all, there's no rule against using the proper name of a particular topographical feature. ;)

My topographical feature was island: "Treasure Island"

I'm pretty new to book reviewing like this so all constructive feedback is welcome :)

Darlene 2/1/12, 9:14 PM  

I hope that "pond" qualifies as a topographical feature!?!

Mine is The Witch of Blackbird Pond.

Finished the first book for this challenge. I've linked my review at Goodreads which is in english because I write in Portuguese at my blog. Hhope there's no problem with that. :)

Just finished "Island of Lost Girls" I thought it was going to be like "Lovely Bones" and wasn't sure I could finish it. But even though it is twisted, it is strangely compelling.

Whoops, I clicked enter before I had edited the link.

Here the link to the post: http://littleelfman.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/sea-hearts-by-margo-lanagan.html

Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan

My Topographic Feature book was SHELTER MOUNTAIN by Robyn Carr. It was the first by her I've read, and I was pretty effectively sucked into the world for a few hours.

Tea 3/4/12, 7:21 AM  

I had a hard time choosing Topography. Started to go with Small Island. I kept changing my silly mind. This challenge is so much fun. I might be ready to write a wrap up post.

I am still having trouble getting links to go directly to my blog. You can try:
http://raesrumblings.blogspot.com/2012/03/strangers-in-desert.html Desert is my topographical feature.

Sue 3/6/12, 12:46 PM  

This is a fun challenge! I have one more book to finish it up.

Mirjam 3/6/12, 2:11 PM  

For the topographical feature book I chose Mountain Laurel by Jude Deveraux. I have now completed two of the six. Can't wait to get started on the others!

Felicity Grace Terry 3/27/12, 7:14 AM  

The last book to be read for this years challenge, there's only my wrap-up post to do. As always such fun, I only wish you'd consider adding more categories to the challenge. Thanks for all the work you put in, see you next year.

For topographical feature I read Beach Music by Pat Conroy, which had been recommended by several friends.

Joy Weese Moll 5/8/12, 9:03 PM  

I just realized that my Weekend Cooking post last week had a topographical feature -- Fire Island!

Christine Harding 5/21/12, 7:18 AM  

I posted The Good Earth b Pearl S Buck, on the grounds that earth/soil is a topographical feature, but please say if you disagree!It won the Pulitzer Price in 1932, but I would never have given it a prize... I struggled with this one.

dollycas aka Lori 5/24/12, 1:06 PM  

Just one more category left!!!

Peggy Ann 5/31/12, 10:30 AM  

4 down and one to go...creepy crawly. Hmmm....

CMash 6/1/12, 9:51 AM  

WooHoo. One more to go!!

Paula 6/22/12, 12:46 AM  

An Untamed Land is my topographical feature~ and was a very good read!

2 down - I think Creepy Crawly's next!

Farin 7/2/12, 7:42 PM  

Two down as well. Technically, my title doesn't refer to an actual yard, but I figured I'd be creative :)

Mary R. 7/2/12, 10:18 PM  

This is my 4th book for this challenge. Finding a book with a topographical element was tough, but I decided a ditch counted.

Carine 7/4/12, 11:33 AM  

Three books down, three more to go! I really like this challenge!

Bibliophile 9/17/12, 4:04 PM  

Posted my third book, the topographical feature. Book: The Marsh Arabs by Wilfred Thesiger.

hannah 10/1/12, 5:41 PM  

bah. I keep trying to comment, and I am dumb. Anyway, I read "By the Shores of Silver Lake" by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Literary Feline 12/5/12, 7:45 PM  

A tree isn't a land mass but it does qualify in Wikipedia as a topographical feature.

beastmomma 10/20/13, 5:17 PM  

Even though the challenge finished over a year ago, I am still making my way through.
