What's in a name 5: reading challenge 2012

Beth Fish posted her reading challenge for 2012 back in November. Ok, so I'm nearly a year late to the show, but here are the guidelines:
Between January 1 and December 31, 2012, read one book in each of the following categories:
  1. A book with a topographical feature (land formation) in the title: Black Hills, Purgatory Ridge, Emily of Deep Valley
  2. A book with something you'd see in the sky in the title: Moon Called, Seeing Stars, Cloud Atlas
  3. A book with a creepy crawly in the title: Little Bee, Spider Bones, The Witches of Worm
  4. A book with a type of house in the title: The Glass Castle, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, Ape House
  5. A book with something you'd carry in your pocket, purse, or backpack in the title: Sarah's Key, The Scarlet Letter, Devlin Diary
  6. A book with a something you'd find on a calendar in the title: Day of the Jackal, Elegy for April, Freaky Friday, Year of Magical Thinking

My reading list this year reveals that so far I have met four of the categories quite by accident with Broken Harbor, Name of the Wind, The Red Pyramid and Snuff. [I'm pretty certain a dragon doesn't count as a creepy-crawly.]
