A-Z Challenge 2014

This is a challenge being hosted by the Young Adult Book Club on Goodreads. I had a lot of fun completing this challenge in 2013 but put virtually no planning or foresight into my selections.

I somehow managed to complete it without actively trying to – I made my books fit the challenge not the other way around. This time I want to try something different. I have pre-selected the books I will be reading from my personal library (that is my ever-increasing TBR pile). Taking part in this should hopefully help reduce this pile a little bit.

azThe rules for this challenge are simple:

  • 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.
  • “A” and “The” should be omitted from the titles.
  • Letters Q, X and Z can be positioned anywhere in the titles or author names.


Here is my list:

A: Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund

B: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

C: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

D: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

E: World After by Susan Ee – review

F: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

G: Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey

H: Hysteria by Megan Miranda

I: Ironskin by Tina Connolly

J: The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

K: Crash into You by Katie McGarry

L: The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr

M: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

N: The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

O: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

P: For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

Q: Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn

R: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

S: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

T: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

U: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

V: Divergent by Vernonica Roth

W: The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman

X: Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler

Y: The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

Z: What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang


I can’t wait to get started on these titles – let the book-reading commence!
