2018 Alphabet Soup Challenge

Hello bookworms!!

I participated in this challenge last year and just barely missed completing it. I was left with the letters X and Y. If you want to see what books I read for this challenge last year you can do so by going here. I decided I wanted to try this challenge again this year so lets get into how this works.

This challenge is hosted by Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book The information below is straight from Dollycas’s post.


This challenge will run from January 1st, 2018 until December 31st, 2018.

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.

Make a page or a post or a GoodReads shelf where you will keep track of your spoonfuls. I keep track of mine on my Challenge Page.

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 then 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 – Antiques Wanted by Barbara Allan B – Biscuits and Slashed Browns by Maddie Day C – Class Reunions Are Murder by Libby Klein D- The Diva Cooks Up A Storm by Krista Davis, etc..

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

Follow Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book as there may be special announcements made about the challenge.

There is also a very active group on Facebook where you can share your books read and converse with others taking part in the challenge. Alphabet Soup Challenge –  You can share your accomplishments throughout year there. Right now they are finishing this year’s challenge but it will switch over to the new year on January 1.

This year I am asking everyone to sign up using Google Forms. Sign Up Here. This way I have your emails in case I need to contact you about any changes to the challenge or about special events.

Just like last year I am going with option A and I will update this post throughout the year. I also have a page in my bullet journal where I will keep up with it so I don’t forget anything.
