Okay so I have decided to do an alphabetical reading challenge this year. It took a little while to find this one – a lot of A-Z challenges seem to be by title which I didn’t want. I have settled on the 2020 Alphabet Soup challenge which is hosted by Escape With Dollycas. It’s rules are quite simple. Pick a book written by someone whose first, middle or last name starts with each letter of the alphabet and keep a record of each one.
It isn’t obligatory to decide in advance what books to read but I love a list and also need a reason to stick to a challenge. I’ve tried to make it by surname as much as I can and am yet to find anyone for Q or X. Any recommendations for either of those would be gratefully received.
Nabakov, Vladimir – Lolita
O’Farrell, Maggie – The Hand that Once Held Mine
Tremain, Rose – Music and Silence
Updike, John – Rabbit Run
Vera Brittain – Testament of Youth – currently reading
Williams, John – Stoner
Young, Neil – Shakey
