Alphabet Soup 2017 Reading Challenge

This challenge is hosted by Lori at Escape with Dollycas.

Alphabet Soup Challenge

from Lori

It’s an alphabet challenge!!! The challenge is to read one book that has a title starting with every letter of the alphabet. (Disregard the "A"s, "An"s, and "The"s from the beginnings of the titles.) The first Main word has the initial letter you are counting, except for those pesky Q, X and Z titles. The word that starts with Q, X and Z can be anywhere in the title.

This challenge will run from January 1st, 2017 until December 31st, 2017. You can join anytime. By December 31, your bowls must be full of one book for each letter of the Alphabet. Each Letter Counts As 1 Spoonful.

Make a page, or a post, or a GoodReads shelf where you will keep track of your spoonfuls. You do not have to post a review of the book. Books can come from any genre. Books can be read in any order and all formats — print, e-book, audio — are acceptable for this challenge! Crossovers to other challenges are allowed and encouraged!
