Last years attempt at completing the Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge was an absolute fail. I repeated a lot of letters and missed out a hefty amount. You can view last years attempt here. My promise to write a review for each of those books that I read plummeted to its death pretty early on, only managing to write four. Yikes. I’ll try to be better this year but I’m a bit lazy when it comes to reviewing.
My personal goal whilst doing this challenge is to ensure that I read at least 5 of each of the following: Classics, Thrillers, YA Fantasy and Plays.
Read one book that has its title starting with a letter of the alphabet. That’s 26 books. A’s and The’s can be dropped from the beginning of titles. The first main word needs to be the letter you are counting, except for Q, X AND Z titles then the word that starts with the challenge letter can be anywhere in the title. Like last year, I have decided to exclude any short stories or pieces of poetry that I read from this challenge.
