The Alphabet Soup reading challenge

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

The challenge is to read one book whose first word of the 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, although Lori allows some leeway in where the Q, X or Z turns up in the title.

You can do book titles or the Author edition: same idea, but this time the author’s name determines the letter.  I did this version in 2019, and a sort of mixture in 2020.

Previous Results

Challenge for 2024

Keeping it simple. Titles of books, not counting A or The, with some leeway on where Q, X or Z appear. I’m adding a clue for myself so I know where I’m lacking a title.
