I Spy Reading Challenge

I Spy Reading Challenge
Duration: One year from the date you start the challenge
*The challenge post says only non 3 non paranormal's allowed but for this challenge post can read anything

I love challenges where we have to go on a little scavenger hunt through our TBR to find books that fit.

This one is a TITLE search challenge--it's not based on finding pictures on the cover, but finding words in the title of the book. But instead of giving you specific words to search for, we're going to do categories. I've listed a bunch of examples, but you're not limited to those--use your imagination and find words that fit the categories.

The duration of this challenge will be one year from your start date. So whenever you decide to start, you will have one year to complete it. Please post your dates with your list. You may use anthologies & rereads, and while most should be along the paranormal/fantasy theme, I won't smack you upside the head if you throw one or two non-paranormals in there. :)

Also, if you are having a hard time with a category, you many use the series name if it is printed on the cover of the book. Everyone can do that for up to 3 categories. In the TITLE of a book, find a word that fits the below categories: ***items below in italics are just suggestions from me, use them or come up with new ones, I just wanted to give examples and I got carried away. :)
