2024 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

 Another favorite is now up for 2024!

The Alphabet Soup Challenge means that by December 31, 2024
your bowls must be filled with one book for each letter of the Alphabet.

Each Letter Counts As 1 Spoonful


This challenge will run from January 1st, 2024 until December 31st, 2024.

It’s an alphabet challenge!!! The challenge is to read one book that has a title starting with every letter of the alphabet.

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 that pesky Q, X, AND Z titles then 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 – How I plan to do it: Make a list 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.


B – Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet, and check them off as you read them. 

For example:

A – Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Lord: A Mystery (Lady Petra Inquires) by Celeste Connally

B – A Bean to Die For (A Coffee Lover’s Mystery) by Tara Lush

C – Camino Ghosts: A Novel by John Grisham

D- Daffodils And Deadly Deeds: A British Cozy Murder Mystery by Victoria Tait

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