2017 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

Hello lovely readers!

For 2017 I have decided that I will be joining in more book related challenges, to spice things up a bit in this awfully boring blog of mine! I have been scouring the internet for challenges, and this is the first one that popped up. So I thought, I’ll give it a go!

If you have read my previous blog post Ramblings | Goals for 2017 – you would know that I am planning on tackling my ever growing TBR pile! and this challenge is perfect in helping zero in on which ones I could read first!

This challenge is being hosted by Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book. You too can sign up to join the challenge!

The Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

**The following information has been taken directly from EscapewithDollycas

The Alphabet Soup Challenge means that by December 31, 2017
your bowls must be full of one book for each letter of the Alphabet.

The Rules

This challenge will run from January 1st, 2017 until December 31st, 2017.

You can join anytime. You do not have to post a review of the book. Books can come from any genre.You do not need to link up each spoonful.

Crossovers to other challenges are allowed and encouraged!

It’s an alphabet challenge!!! The challenge is to read one book that has a title starting with every letter of the alphabet. You can drop the A’s and The’s from the book titles as shown below.

The First Main Word Needs To Be
The Letter You Are Counting 

Except For those pesky Q, X AND Z titles the word that starts with the challenge letter can be anywhere in the title.

So there are two different ways you can set up your own A-Z Reading Challenge.

A – How I plan to do it: Make a list on your blog from A-Z. Throughout the year, as you go along, add the books you are reading to the list. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find books to fit.


B – Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet. For example: A –All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr B-Broken Sky by L.A. Weatherly  etc.

Books can be read in any order and all formats – print – e-book – audio – are acceptable for this challenge!
