I was very excited to see that a new host stepped up to keep this challenge going! Annie did a great job creating and hosting this challenge for two years and I am looking forward to year 3! I am absolutely positive that I will change my book choices, but here is the first round of possibilities:
"Body of Water" category: River Secrets by Shannon Hale or The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
"Place Name" category: The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance by Elna Baker
"Plant" category: Twisted Tree by Kent Meyers
"Title" (Doctor, Mrs., president, etc.) category: His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik or Nanny Returns by Emma McLaughlin, Nicola Kraus. I am thinking both of these titles are a bit of a stretch, so let me know if you have any other suggestions...
"Food" category: Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
And that just leaves the "music term" category...surely I can come up with one before next December!
