What's in a Name 6

It only seems appropriate to start 2013 by joining a reading challenge.  I've been pondering about this challenge for a while now, and I've decided to go ahead to do it...

What's in a Name, is in it's sixth cycle and being hosted by Beth from Beth Fish Reads.  Here's what she has to say about the challenge:

This challenge was originated by a young blogger named Annie, who hosted it for two years. When she decided to give up on being the host, I took over the challenge. 
I credit this challenge with being one of the prime reasons for my becoming a blogger, so I am thrilled to be its new host. 
Here's How It Works 
Between January 1 and December 31, 2013, read one book in each of the following categories: 
1.  A book with up or down (or equivalent) in the title: Deep down True, The Girl Below, The Diva Digs up the Dirt 2.  A book with something you'd find in your kitchen in the title: Loose Lips Sink Ships, The Knife of Never Letting Go, Breadcrumbs 3.  A book with a party or celebration in the title: A Feast for Crows, A Wedding in Haiti, Cocktail Hour under the Tree of Forgetfulness 4.  A book with fire (or equivalent) in the title: Burning for Revenge, Fireworks over Toccoa, Catching Fire 5.  A book with an emotion in the title: Baltimore Blues, Say You're Sorry, Dreams of Joy 6.  A book with lost or found (or equivalent) in the title: The Book of Lost Fragrances, The World We Found, A Discovery of Witches The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category. 
Other Things to Know
Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book). Books may overlap other challenges. Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category. Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed but encouraged. You do not have to make a list of books before hand. You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.
I'm looking forward to discovering some gems for this challenge!
