The ABC Challenge (B)

I saw this challenge over on A Book. A Thought. I liked the idea of going through my shelves and thinking about some of the books that stick out in my mind. I have fun going through my shelves and picking out books. I found some that I want to reread soon.

Memorable Titles that Start with “B”

Beneath the Sugar SkySeanan McGuire – This was probably my favorite of this series so far. It was a fun, twisting story that I felt connected me best to the characters.

Blind Faith – Ben Eaton – I bought this when I was in London years ago. I remember it being about following a government without thinking for yourself. I need to read it again now and see how it relates to our time.

Because You Love to Hate MeVarious Authors- This was an interesting short story collection. It told stories from villain’s POV. Victoria Schwab has one about death that is just fantastic.

The Book ThiefMarkus Zusak – This is a classic and it is as good as the reviews have said. It heart-breaking but in the best way possible.

What are your opinions on some of these books? Any that you love?

The ABC Book Challenge (A)

I saw this challenge over on A Book. A Thought. I liked the idea of going through my shelves and thinking about some of the books that stick out in my mind. I also like the idea of going through my TBR and looking at books from this angle.

I will periodically update this, not weekly, but once in a while. I like being able to add this ongoing posts in-between reviews. I like the idea of having different things to break up what I post.

For A I chose books that began with a word that started with A, not just A itself. I saw a few I loved that started as “A…” but I am going to use those for when the letter of the main word comes up.

(I will link to the review if I have done a review for the mentioned book )

                  Memorable Titles That Start With “A”

At the Edge of the Universe – Shaun David Hutchinson – I have sung Hutchinson’s praises so many times before. This one is my second favorite of his books. It is a unique look at what happens when you realize you are not the center of the universe and start living with the outside world.

Ash and Quill – Rachel Caine – The third book in the Great Library series. I love this series and the way it explores what happens when knowledge is controlled by a select few.

Alice Takes Back Wonderland – David D. Hammons – A reimagining of Alice and Wonderland. It was fun and full of imagination. It does justice to the source material while taking you on an even more fantastic journey.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Saenz – A poignant coming of age story. I was swept away and cannot wait or the sequel!
