Double Trouble ABC Challenge

I missed doing an ABC challenge in 2018… So even though I’m not sure I’ll actually finish the challenge this year, I decided to just give in and give it a go. The catch? I’ll be doing not one, but TWO ABC challenges: one with the book titles and one with the last name of the authors. Like the title states: double trouble! But hopefully also double the fun. (I know there are lots of existing ABC challenges out there, but I’m just doing my own challenge this year to keep things simple.)

My rules:

TITLE: read one book that has a title with each letter of the alphabet. The A’s and The’s don’t count… Also, the Q, X and Z titles can have those letters anywhere in the title.

AUTHOR: read a book with an author’s last name for each letter. If there is more than one last name, it should be the first that counts… And the Q, X and Z names can have the letter anywhere in the last name.

Let’s go ABC crazy!!

  1. I’m doing the A to Z challenge this year! I’m yet to find titles for my Q, X and Z too but like you said, it can be anywhere in the title/last name so I know I’ll find some soon.

    I hope you finish everything on the list. 🙂

    • Those are always tricky letters! As for author last names, Jeff Zentner, Matthew Quick and Julie Buxbaum are the first that come to my mind. Titles with a Q are easier (anything queen). Good luck with your ABC challenge!
