A – Z Book Love #AtoZChallenge

I have always been a reader. I mean, I remember being in elementary school and setting up my own “library” system for my books so that I could record when I loaned a book to a friend and when they returned it. To this day I still remember lending a book to a girl, Paige, when I was in the 5th grade and never getting it back. It was a terrible mystery book called something like A Murder in Hollywood but it was a cheesy YA novel.

I’ve read hundreds (thousands?) of books and lately I’ve seen a lot of these A – Z lists popping up around the web. The concept is to share 26 books, each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet, that we would recommend to other readers. To make it a bit more fair words like “The” and “A” don’t count as “T” or “A”. 

26 books you should be reading for the A to Z book challenge! #books #reading #bookchallenge

And, if you have any books to add to my list I’d love to hear about them in the comments. 

A = All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Z = Zorro by Isabel Allende

Ok, so I am a bit disappointed that I don’t have an “x” book to share with you but I couldn’t think of a single one. I scoured my shelves at home, I searched my GoodReads account (friend me!), and I combed through my Amazon profile. Nothing. On the other hand, I really struggled to choose only one book for letters B, D, F, L, M, Q, P, and T. I had dozens on those letters and it was so hard to choose only one book to feature. Maybe that’s why they call it a challenge?  *Sigh*

Do you have any books for me? Anyone out there have an “X” book to complete my list? Help me!
