A-Z Book Title Challenge

Hi guys! I have a new challenge that I want to start. I got this idea from a fellow youtuber The Metalhead Bookworm when she started a A-Z tag. You can view that video here: Alphabet Tag...

Anyway, after I did my tag (which you can see here: A-Z book tag) it got me thinking about what a cool and fun challenge this would be. But, I wanted to change it a little from how she did it and make it so you had to use only the book titles. is the challenge....

You have to read a book where the title starts with a letter of the alphabet. 26 letters in the alphabet, 26 books. You don't have to go in order like the alphabet, you can flip around, but keep track of the letters you already did. You can do it in as short of a time frame as you want or take as long as you want (hopefully w/in a year otherwise I think it will just get old).

I have quite a few books in mind already and am excited to get started on this challenge. Here are the few I am thinking of already....

A. Another Faust-Daniel and Dina Nayeri
B. Burned-Ellen Hopkins
C. Change of Heart-Jodi Picoult
D. Dismantled-Jennifer McMahon
E. the Eternal Kiss-Various Authors
F. the Forest of Hands and Teeth-Carrie Ryan
G. Gone for Good-Harlen Coben

and you get the idea....I think this challenge will also help me to figure out what book I am going to read next. I have so many books on my TBR pile that sometimes I can't decide on what to read next.

I know there are many other challenges out there and I know you may have a lot that you are already participating in, but if you have room for one more why don't you join this one. It will be a fun one!

Until next time, Have a good "read"...

    I wrote a blog post on it:
