2017 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge


Hello bookworms!!

I have been seeing this challenge pop up off and on for a while now and I thought I would try it for the first time in 2017. This is just one of five challenges I am participating in so I hope I can stick to it.

This challenge is hosted by Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book and you can find the sign up sheet here. The information below is straight from Dollycas’s post.

Now on to the rules and how this challenge works:

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

Each Letter Counts As 1 Spoonful



This challenge will run from January 1st, 2017 until December 31st, 2017. You can join anytime. You do not have to review 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! 

The challenge is to read one book that has a title starting with every letter of the alphabet. However, 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 –  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 – The Art of Murder by Elaine Viets.

Books can be read in any order and all formats – print – e-book – audio – are acceptable for this challenge! Non-bloggers you can join too! Just add a Goodreads shelf to indicate the challenge! Follow Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book as there may be special announcements made about the challenge.

So I have opted for option A. I will be updating this post throughout the year.
