2019 Alphabet Soup – Author Edition Reading Challenge – SIGN UP TODAY!!

You’ve Asked For It – You Got It!

Introducing the Alphabet Soup – Author Edition Reading Challenge!

Participants in the Book Title Alphabet Soup Challenge have asked for an Author Challenge so here you go! 

Start keeping track of your authors and by December 31, 2019
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, 2019 until December 31st, 2019.

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 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 – Amanda Flower – Toxic Toffee (An Amish Candy Shop Mystery)

B – Lucy Burdette – A Deadly Feast: A Key West Food Critic Mystery

C – Sheila Connolly – The Lost Traveller: A County Cork Mystery

D – Denise Swanson – Leave No Scone Unturned (Chef-to-Go Mysteries)

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

Ready to join??

Bloggers grab the image below and make a post about the challenge to encourage others to join!

Non-bloggers you can join too! Just keep track any way you wish. You can even set up a special shelf on Goodreads.com to help you keep track!  It is super easy, Just click the MY BOOKS tab at the top of the page. When that page opens just click – ADD A SHELF in the left-hand sidebar. Title it Alphabet Soup Author Edition Challenge and you are all set. 

Follow Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book as there may be special announcements made about the challenge.

I have set up a group on Facebook for this challenge where you can share your books read and converse with others taking part in the challenge. Alphabet Soup – Author Edition – Challenge –  You can share your accomplishments throughout the year there. 

I am asking everyone to sign up using Google Forms. Sign Up Here. This way I have your emails in case I need to contact you about any changes to the challenge or about special events. 

I will be playing along but am already nervous about the Q, X, and Z.
Not many authors with those initials spring quickly to mind 🙂
