A-Z Challenge Completed

I finished another challenge!  The challenge was to read 2 books for each letter – one for the title and on for the author.  So, 52 books later I can cross it off my list of challenges.

I liked the fact that I had to find books that I never would have looked at before.   I started on one shelf at the library and read the first book that had a title that started with K (Killer Mousse by Melinda Wells) and loved it.  I also used the library to find an author for X and discovered the sweet gem, Sky Burial by Xinran.  And I never would have considered The Xibalba Murders by Lyn Hamilton without the need for an X title.  If you are titling your book, consider starting it with an X!

You can find the list of books I read for this challenge here.

 This was fun and I hope to do it again next year.  Thanks for hosting it, Becky!

    I completed stalled on all my challenges this year. I have not been reading a lot since the school year began again. It sucks, but I fall asleep when I try to read!!

    Congrats! I’m only doing titles and I’m still not done! And I’m reading the Xilababa Murders too for my X book! I suspect there aren’t too many out there to choose from. Next year I’m going to try authors and not titles. I do like that it introduces you to books you wouldn’t have read normally but that you can still fit in a lot of books you would read anyway.

    Congrats on achieving this challenge!! =) It sounds like fun, especially with the X titles and authors!

    I’ve been neglecting my own challenges… I gotta start keeping track of them again.

    Good going on the challenge! I read Sky Burial a couple of years ago when I was looking for an X author as well. 😉 My X title was Xingu by Edith Wharton though (just a heads up if you play along next year).
