2016 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

I’ve decided to participate in the 2016 Alphabet Soup reading challenge this year. The challenge is to read one book in 2016 whose title begins with each letter of the alphabet (special exceptions for Q, X and Z). Now this one should be pretty easy for me seeing as I have a ton of books to read and review for Ebook Addicts

The Alphabet Soup Challenge is hosted by Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book. You can find the sign up post here.

This challenge also means that by December 31, 2016 your bowls must be full of one book for each letter of the Alphabet.

Each Letter Counts As 1 Spoonful

spoon 1


This challenge will run from January 1st, 2016 until December 31st, 2016.

You can join anytime. You do not have to review the book. Books can come from any genre. You do not need to link up each spoonful.

Crossovers to other challenges are allowed and encouraged! Yay! Since I am doing 4 other reading challenges, this helps tremendously! I just hope I can find some of the more difficult letters…

The challenge is to read one book that has a title starting with every letter of the alphabet. However, you can drop the A’s and The’s from the book titles as shown below.

The First Main Word Needs To Be The Letter You Are Counting 

Except For those pesky Q, X AND Z titles the word that starts with the challenge letter can be anywhere in the title.

So there are two different ways you can set up your own A-Z Reading Challenge.

A –  Make a list on your blog from A-Z. Throughout the year, as you go along, add the books you are reading to the list. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find books to fit. (This is what I’m doing.)


B – Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet. For example: A – The Art of Murder by Elaine Viets.

Books can be read in any order and all formats – print – e-book – audio – are acceptable for this challenge!


Non-bloggers you can join too! Just add a Goodreads shelf to indincate the challenge! Follow Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book as there may be special announcements made about the challenge.
