2017 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge


I saw this challenge over at Incessant Bookworm, and decided to join immediately since I already have to do a similar scavage hunt for the 2017 Beat The Backlist challenge. The challenge is hosted at Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book and is another yearly challenge. Bacially, by the end of the year, your bowl has to be filled with one book for each letter of the alphabet!

Each letter will count as 1 spoonful, and the challenge is to read one book that has a title with every letter of the alphabet. The A’s and The’s can be dropped from the book titles to make things easier. Also, the Q, X and Z titles can have words that start with the letter anywhere in the title. I’m not going to make a list beforehand, and just see how things go… Although I will probably have to hunt for the more difficult letters later on.

On to the list:
