2017 Author ABC Challenge


I know I’m already doing the 2017 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge, but a few people mentioned doing the same thing for authors and I just couldn’t resist the temptation. I couldn’t find any official post when I checked yesterday, so this is me creating my ‘own’ challenge. If you know the blog an author ABC challenge is hosted this year, please let me know in the comments! 🙂

I’m going to keep rules pretty basic and use the 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.

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:
