The A-Z Challenge

The A-Z Challenge is hosted by Becky and offers participants five separate choices, to read authors, titles, authors and titles, or countries A-Z or to read 26 alphabet books. I've decided to complete the Title Challenge and read 26 books, each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. I actually thought about this quite awhile ago, but I completely neglected to make my post or sign up in any true way. I started a list in Word and then did absolutely nothing productive with it. Here is the list with links to the reviews:

A. Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman
B. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
C. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
D. The Doll's House by Neil Gaiman
E. Escape by Carolyn Jessop
F. Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses by Mark Twain
G. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
H. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
I. I Love You, Beth Cooper by Larry Doyle
J. The Joys and Perils of Victimhood by Ian Buruma
K. The Know-it-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World by A.J. Jacobs
L. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
M. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
N. No Touch Monkey by Ayun Halliday
O. The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
P. Preludes and Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman
Q. The Quillan Games by D.J. MacHale
R. Raven's Gate by Anthony Horowitz
S. The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
T. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
U. Upside Down and Backward by William T. Vollman
V. Virtual Devotion by Eric Coble
W. Watchmen by Allan Moore
X. Experience and Education by John Dewey
Y. The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
Z. The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

As you can see, I'm a bit behind on reviews. I wrote a quick review for some of the "unreviewed books" but I'm wanting to flesh those out into actual reviews sometime in the coming week. I'll add as I go on.

  1. Good luck!

    I started late, but you are doing much better than me already! LOL

    (found you on the challenge blog)

    Take care,


  2. Sassy - I was already reading for other challenges so there is a bunch of cross over here! Glad you found me!

  3. I didn't do this one because I have so many others on the go. But it's fun seeing what other's have read. I really enjoyed The Reader and The Zookeeper's Wife and The Sun Also Rises. I've bookmarked your blog so I'll be back. (My reader has limits and apprently I have filled it-harummph.)
