ABC Book Challenge

Another prompt from "The Book Chewers."
The Book Chewers

Prompt: Have you read a book starting with every. single. letter from the alphabet?! Make a list of books you've read, from A to Z! (Bonus points to those who've read those tricky letters, like X and Z). Also, you can bypass "the" or "a" in titles, if you need to.

Here goes nothing . . .

B - Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
C - Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
D - Delirium by Lauren Oliver
E - Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
F - The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
G - The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong
H - How I Lost You by Janet Gurtler
I - Insurgent by Veronica Roth
J - Jake and Lily by Jerry Spinelli
K - Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata
L - The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.
M - Matched by Ally Condie
N - Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

W - Wonder by R.J. Palacio
X - 
Y - You Are A Writer by Jeff Goins
Z -

Well, 24 out of 26 isn't bad, right? ;) But I was so close. (Does anyone know any good books that start with "X" or "Z")?

Be sure to check out my interview with authors Stephanie Morrill and Jill Williamson down below! :D

Oh! Good one on the Q. Can't remember if I've read that one or not. I know I've read "Fantastic Beasts" and "Tales of Beedle the Bard" . . .

@Lydia Thanks! :D I own all three, but "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" is my absolute favorite. :)

CG @ Paper Fury said...

You did great! I loved your choices of books there too. Ah! I need to read Quidditch through the ages, and that'll take care of my Q problems. I'm tempted to write a book starting with X, so lots of people will read it just for the sake of the X. Sounds legit, right? ;)

The Magic Violinist said...

@Cait Ha, that's a great idea! XD You should totally do that!

Erin O'Riordan said...

I;m very curious to know what the full title of Cait's X book would be.

This is a great list. :) I don't know if I could hit every letter, but I do have an X and Z!

For X, I'd list any X-Men book (yes, there are some actual books, not just comics and graphic novels).

And for Z would be a book called "Zero: The History of a Dangerous Idea." Neat book about world history from the angle of how the concept of zero revolutionized mathematics and cultural development.

This is a great list. Are you coming up with some good ideas for the missing letters?
