Hi! Hello! Hola! Bonjour! Konnichiwa!

I am BACK in the blogosphere, after taking a slight hiatus. And truth be told, blogging feels sort of foreign now. So please forgive me if this post isn’t the most intelligent thing you’ve ever read.

To celebrate my long-awaited return, I’m participating in a weekly link-up at The Book Chewers!

Book Chewers

Here is the prompt:

Have you read a book starting with every. single. letter from the alphabet?! Make a list of books you’ve read, from A to Z! (Bonus points to those who’ve read those tricky letters, like X and Z.) Also, you can bypass “the” or “a” in titles, if you need to.

Ooh, this will be fun.


A: An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

B: Blood Red Road by Moira Young

C: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

D: Dark Triumph by R.L. LaFevers

E: Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

F: Fablehaven by Brandon Mull

G: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

H: How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr

I: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

J: The Janitor’s Boy by Andrew Clements (I read this a reallllly long time ago, but, hey, it starts with a J.)

K: Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross

L: Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

M: Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng

N: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer (Yes, you read that right. It’s a particularly gruesome form of self-torture, see.)

O: Olive’s Ocean by Kevin Henkes

P: Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

Q: Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling (Take that, Q!)

R: Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

S: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

T: This Must Be Love by Tui T. Sutherland

U: The Unidentified by Rae Mariz

V: The View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg (I read this a long time ago, too. But it still counts.)

W: The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin

X: ??? X is stupid. It’s the only letter preventing me from WORLD DOMINATION. Stupid X.

Y: You by Charles Benoit



Anyways, there you have it! A blog post! That was really fun, actually. So…yeah.

Have a nice day.

    Oh no, failed your world domination (my deepest condolences… *scurries off to laugh evilly*)

    Let me just say, I ADORE your list. Is Blood Red Road good? I keep borrowing it out to read, and it always gets pushed to the bottom of my pile. I also want to read An Abundance of Katherines.

    Thanks for joining in our linkup!!

    • Andrea says:

      Thanks! I really enjoyed Blood Red Road. It’s a little weird getting into it–it’s in 1st person, and the words are spelled phonetically, so I had to get used to it–but overall I really liked it. Read it! :D

      You’re welcome :P It was lots of fun!

  2. Lydia says:

    Ah, I’ve been feeling so jealous of the people who have already read “Quidditch Through the Ages”. I did have a Q actually, but Quidditch is just such an awesome word. My Z started with “zoo” too.

  3. Mime says:

    I totally need to read some Y’s, Q’s, and X’s. I don’t think anyone has read an X yet. What a letter. Who invented X?! Wait. My nephew’s name is Xavier. Hmm. Wait. X is okay. X-Men. Heeey! This would be so much easier as movies.

    • Andrea says:

      I like the letter X, except it’s not used to begin words ever. Wait, no. Xylophone. That starts with an X, but that isn’t a book’s title…Never mind. :D

  4. AC BIlledeaux says:

    The X was the death of me. I even cheated by coming to yours (and everyone else’s that linked!) to see if they’d come up with anything.

    I’m going to go read Xombies by Walter Greatshell. Right now. That way this never happens to me again.

  5. Erin says:

    YO! ANDREA! Are you ever going to blog again??? (Just kidding…I shouldn’t be talking. I’m a terrible blogger)

    Actually, I’m here to ask you if you’re going to participate in my reading challenge…I need to know! (You really should, even if you won’t end up reading much.)

Talk to me.
