2024 Alphabet Soup – Author Edition Reading Challenge

 I've been doing the Alphabet Soup challenge for titles for years now, but this year decided also to do the Author Edition

Author Edition Reading Challenge!

Just for Fun!

It’s An Alphabet Challenge!

Start keeping track of your authors and by December 31, 2024
your bowls must be filled by one author for each letter of the Alphabet.
Be sure to include the book title too.



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

You can join anytime. You do not have to post a review of the book. Books can come from any genre.

You do not need to link up each spoonful.

Make a page or a post or a GoodReads shelf where you will keep track of your spoonfuls. I keep track of mine on my Challenge Page.

Crossovers to other challenges are allowed and encouraged!

It’s an alphabet challenge!!! The challenge is to read one book that has an author whose first name, middle, or last name starts with every letter of the alphabet.

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 on your blog from A-Z. Throughout the year, as you go along, add the authors with the book you read to the list. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find authors/books to fit.


B – Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet.

For example:

A – Ellie Alexander – A Smoking Bun: A Bakeshop Mystery

B – Emily Brontë – Wuthering Heights

C – Laura Childs – Peach Tea Smash (A Tea Shop Mystery)

X – Diana Xarissa – Zephyrs and Zombies (An Isle of Man Ghostly Cozy)

Y- Samara Yew – Murder by the Seashore (A California Bookshop Mystery)

Z- Zane Grey – Riders of the Purple Sage

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