2014 A to Z Reading Challenge

CHALLENGE UPDATE: 'D is for Doctor'


This challenge, via Sock Poppet at play and Silver Thistle, looks easy and fun. You can tweak the categories to suit yourself (Sock Puppet's version is the original - mine is already slightly changed). And you can ask Silver Thistle for a personalised challenge button. Each time I find a book that fits a category I'll repost this with an update. There is also a discussion group where you can chat about your progress and meet other booklikers:




A is for April (the month in which you read the book)


B is for Bathing Suit (this book takes place at least partly in hot weather months)


C is for Children (Children's book or a book about children)


D is for Doctor (one of the characters) - Seven by Adrienne Wilder. Has a particularly evil Doctor as the bad guy.



E is for Ever (in the title)


F is for Family (book is about a family or family relationships)


G is for Geography (the story takes place in at least two different countries)


H is for Heart (it's a love story)


I is for Ice (the setting is cold - snow, ice, rain)


J is for Jokes (the book is humorous) - The Grendel Affair by Lisa Shearin. Very goofy heroine.

M is for Mother (one of the characters)


N is for New-to-you author


O is for Out of This World (where the story takes place)


P is for Pilgrims (the story involves moving someplace new)


Q is for Question Mark in the title


R is for Random (close your eyes and pick a book at random from shelves or ereader)
