My life has been so crazy full this year. I am unbelievably behind on my Goodreads reading challenge. I think I’ll make it up. Maybe? I’m also participating in the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge, which I’ll write an update post on soon.
Another challenge 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
E- Engel, Patricia – Veins of the Ocean
F- Fitzgerald, F. Scott – The Great Gatsby
G- Garber, Stephanie – Caraval; Gordon, Jaimy – Lord of Misrule
H- Hartnett, Annie – Rabbit Cake
J- Johansen, Erika – The Queen of the Tearling; James, Vic – Gilded Cage
K- Kendi, Ibram X. – Stamped from the Beginning
L- Le Guin, Ursula – Steering the Craft
M- Meyer, Marissa – Cinder
N- Novik, Naomi – Uprooted
P- Poreba, Christine – Rough Knowledge; Patchett, Ann – Bel Canto
Q- Queneau, Raymond – Exercises in Style
S- Saunders, George – Lincoln in the Bardo; Solnit, Rebecca – Men Explain Things to Me; Smiley, Jane – Horse Heaven (currently reading)
Y- Yanagihara, Hanya – A Little Life
Somehow I’ve done 15/26. I have a list of other potential books I may read here. But who knows what I’ll end up reading.
Want to try the challenge yourself? Join the fun here.
How do you ever find time to do all you do?
I love veins of the ocean! If you still need a W, i recommend “The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster” by Scott Wilbanks
Yeah, Patricia is really nice. And thanks for the rec! 😊
I recommend Scott’s book every chance I get, I adore him and his book so much. He’s coming on my podcast again June 22nd
