Life has been very busy in many excellent (and a few mundane) ways. I should be posting a new life & writing update soon, and I’ll also be slapping some reviews on here, because I have been flooded with arcs. It’s truly hard for me to say no when somebody hands me a book.

Meanwhile, I’ve still been reading. One of the challenges I’m participating in this year is the Litsy A-to-Z challenge. There are a few options for that one, but the one I’m choosing is this: read 26 books, each with an author whose last name starts with a different letter. If you’re on Litsy, follow me: @becky_renner, and click this link to join in the fun.

Here are the books I have read so far:


B- Borsuk, Amaranth – Between Page and Screen

C- Cluess, Jessica – A Shadow Bright and Burning (currently reading)



F- Fitzgerald, F. Scott – The Great Gatsby

G- Garber, Stephanie – Caraval

H- Hartnett, Annie – Rabbit Cake


J- Johansen, Erika – The Queen of the Tearling


L- Le Guin, Ursula – Steering the Craft

M- Meyer, Marissa – Cinder

N- Novik, Naomi – Uprooted


P- Poreba, Christine – Rough Knowledge

Q- Queneau, Raymond – Exercises in Style


S- Saunders, George – Lincoln in the Bardo; Solnit, Rebecca – Men Explain Things to Me






Y- Yanagihara, Hanya – A Little Life



Somehow I’m just about halfway done. Considering all of the other things I’ve had to do, I’m going to dub that a minor miracle.

Want to try the challenge yourself? Join the fun here.
