A-Z Challenge 2013

So I have recently joined another group on GoodReads which I told myself I would not do anymore, but I did anyway. This particular group hosts an A-Z Challenge, which I always hear about, but never participated in. So I decided this year I will give it a try. For anyone else who wishes to start their own challenges, or know more about what the challenge entails, I am posting the rules below:


Duration: January 1, 2013 - December 31, 2013.

You can read in any order you wish.

Although we are a YA Book Club, for this challenge, if you wish, you can read adult books as well, as long as at least 50% of the books read are young adult.

You have 12 months to read 26 books.

Either the first word in the title of the books or the author’s name (first or last) should correspond with a letter in the alphabet.

You should omit “a” and “the” in the titles.

Letters Q, X and Z can be positioned anywhere in the titles or author names.

Examples: C - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, D - Daughter of Smoke and Bone.


The books I chose for my challenge are listed below. As I complete a book from the list, I will cross it out. I'll be adding a tab on the top of my blog for easier access.
