2019 Alphabet Soup Challenge Author Edition

Hello bookworms!!

For the past 2 years I have participated in the titles edition of this challenge and both times I failed to complete the challenge. This year I decided to give the author edition a try. Even if I don’t complete the challenge I still enjoy trying. If you want to see how I did on last years challenge you can do so by clicking here.

This challenge is created by Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book and she is also responsible for the graphic above. The information below is straight from her post.


This challenge will run from January 1st, 2019 until December 31st, 2019.

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 an author whose first name or last name starts with every letter of the alphabet.

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 authors with the book you read to the list. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find authors/books to fit.


B – Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet.

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

As I have done every year I am going with option A because I am to lazy to find books that fit this right now. I will be updating this post throughout the year and I will be keeping track of it in my bullet journal again this year.

    1. Thank you!! I feel like I am probably getting on peoples nerves by bombarding them with all of these posts. I’m just trying to catch up at this point because I got behind. This one is a pretty laid back challenge.

  1. I did this “sort of” in 2018 – never officially signed up to anything but did want to complete the alphabet on authors’ last names. I ended up failing because of.. three letters? I think? So my tip is: look for the hard letters first, haha. I think Q en X were two of the letters I didn’t end up ticking off.
