This reading challenge is run by Lori Caswell at Escape with Dollycas into a Good Book

Basically the challenge is to read one book whose title gives you a letter of the alphabet, not counting A and The as starting letters, making 26 in all.  I’ll be adding my titles that qualify during the year, just one per letter, and linking them to my reviews here.  The challenge, of course is to come up with books for the difficult letters.

I’m also doing an A-Z Challenge with the Goodreads GMGR group.  It’s got more gaps, so I may add a second here to remind me, although I sort of prioritise MG books for difficult letters.

A – An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth (Chris Hadfield)

B – The Blackhouse (Peter May)

C – Climate Change and the Health of Nations (McMichael et al); The Creeping Shadow (Jonathan Stroud)

D – Dying Fall (Elly Griffiths)

E – Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows (Balli Kaur Jaswal)

F – Flight (T A Heppenheimer); The Fourteenth Goldfish (Jennifer L Holm)

G – Gangsta Granny (David Walliams)

H – How to Stage a Catastrophe (Rebecca Connelly)

I – Into the Wild (Erin Hunter)

J – Journey to the River Sea (Eva Ibbotson)

K – Kit’s Wilderness (David Almond)

L –

M – Mercenary Instinct (Ruby Lionsdrake)

N –

O – The Outcast Dead (Elly Griffiths)

P – Pair Alleles (Jennifer Ellis)

Q – The Queen’s Envoy (David Prosser)

R – The Roanoke Girls (Amy Engel)

S – See You In The Cosmos, Carl Sagan (Jack Cheng)

T – The Time Travellers’ Resort and Museum (David McLain); The Teacher’s Funeral (Richard Peck)

U – Uncorking a Lie (Nadine Nettman); The Ugly Teapot (Fred Holmes)

V – The Voyages of the Seven (R E Weber)

W – The Whispering Skull (Jonathan Stroud)

X –

Y – Oy Yew (Ana Salote).  I reviewed this for Y in the A2Z Challenge.  If I find another Y and no O, I’ll move it.

Z –


I completed the list in 2016 with the dubious use of Zoe & Zak and the Yogi’s Curse (although Goodreads does categorise it under Y), and book 1 in the Adventures of the X Pirates series.  I think I should try harder in 2017.
