June's Reading Challenge Update

I've had an exciting realization today, we're half way through the year and I am over half way through my reading challenges. I've already surpassed my expectations for the whole year. So, yay for books and challenges going well.

The only one I have trouble with is the "What's in a Name?" challenge (mostly because I forget to look for titles that fit). Do you have a book suggest for these remaining categories?
  • A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title, examples: Black Hills, Purgatory Ridge, Emily of Deep Valley
  • A book with a creepy crawly in the title, examples: Little Bee, Spider Bones, The Witches of Worm
  • A book with a type of house in the title, examples: The Glass Castle, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, Ape House
  • A book with something you'd carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title, examples: Sarah's Key, The Scarlet Letter, Devlin Diary
