[2017] Titles A-Z – reading challenge

It's getting closer to the new year, so it's time to plan for next year's reading challenges!!


In this challenge, the goal is to read 26 different books through the year, where the titles of the books start with each letter in the alphabet (A to Z). Words like «a» and «the», and eqivalents in other languages (like «ein»/«der» an so on in German) counts. So «A Captain's Duty» by Richard Phillips would count as A.

If you have any special letters in your alphabet (like Æ, Ø and Å here in Norway), you might count these as well.

As it's the title that is important, not the author, you can read several books by one author.

You can count the same book in this challenge and the "Authors A-Z" reading challenge (http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/6/536984) or other reading challenges if you want to.

And when you've finished a book, make a post here, telling about the book. Please tell the title, name of author, bookcrossing link if applicable, what the book is about and what you think of it.

You may include an alpabetical list of the titles you've read for this challenge in your posts as well.
Like:
A: «A Captain's Duty» by Richard Phillips
B: «Bob No Ordinary Cat» by James Bowen
C: «Chiles døtre» by Carmen Rodríguez
[...]
Z:

Maybe this will bring us out of our reading comfort zones?

Happy reading!

I successfully did titles & authors back in 2008 - although I have no idea how I managed it. I must have been even crazier than I am now. :p

Me too.

Looks like fun. Now I'll have to look at the many books that are peeking from my corners and stuffed under my bed to find some titles that work in this challenge.

I'm glad to see that some are interested in this challenge! Maybe it will help us remove some books from our Mt. TBR?

That's the idea! And since I still have some titles for IwillRejoice's bookring to go anyway, I might as well log them.

Off to start the spreadsheet and fill in (greyed out) the ones that I know will spill into January anyway.

"The Trenches" by Jim Eldridge is the story about a young soldier during WW1. It was an interesting story, and a reminder that not everything is as glamorous as it seems. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14204434

D - Die Eistoten - Christian Buder: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12608504
A girl don`t belive, that her mother froze to death. She supposes a serial killer lives in her littel village. But nobody believes her. A girl freezes to death again.
thrilling, pychological interesting,

T - Tod in Garmisch - Martin Schüller : http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14357946
A dead man was found in a flume in the mountains - who did it, what was the secret of the dead man? Nice Bavarian argents, familyansd neighbordispute...

V: Verlieb dich nie in einen Toten - Daria Donzowa http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7681178
A nice humorous crime story of Russia

A: Ach, diese Lücke, diese entsetzliche Lücke - Joachim Meyerhoff: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14361447
The acter Joachim Meyerhoff tells his story of his life with his grandpartens, while he studied at the drama school in Munich - nice and funny to read, speciall when you know that he became a famous actor. Now he plays in Vienna, where I have seen him sometimes at the stage.

S: Sklaven für den Kalifen - Manfred Lentz: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14375739
Europa 983 - many Slawish people (Malina, her two brothers, Heinrich...) from Spandau (later- Berlin) were kept as slaves. They were brought to Cordoba and sold on a markt there. Malina and Heinrich fell in love, but it was very difficult for them. Heinrich had to go to Africa.... Very interesing traveldescriptions about life in Europa, Arabisch life Cordoba, in a karavan though the dessert...

U: Und dann steht einer auf und öffnet das Fenster: Susann Pa´sztor: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14379066

"Et liv i isen" (Meaning "A Life In The Ice") by Jan Ove Ekeberg is a book about the steward Adolf Henrik Lindstrøm (does the name make you think of Biff à la Lindström? Yes, that's the man behind it!), who sailed with the great expeditions lead by Fridtjof Nansen, Roald Amundsen and Otto Sverdrup. Lindstrøm sailed through the North West Passage, as part of the first crew that sailed through the entire passage in one journey, and to Antarctica when Roald Amundsen was the first one to reach the South Pole. Lindstrøm stayed behind at "Framheim", their base at the barrier by the Ross sea while Amundsen & co went to the south pole. During the North West passage journey, they also spent quite some time at Greenland. He did also spend time in Argentina, and did also visit Tasmania (Australia), as well as USA and Russia.

W: WONDER by R.J. Palacio
---> audio download read by Diana Steele, Nick Podehl, and Kate Rudd

"You can't blend in when you were born to stand out."

Auggie knows he's just an ordinary kid inside, but he was born with multiple genetic conditions resulting in a face that is...not normal. After years of homeschooling, his parents decide that Auggie should start fifth grade at a private school. Unsurprsingly, this is a big adjustment for everyone.

A hopeful book about what lies beneath the surface: "don't judge a book by its cover" applies to people, too.

Now it is getting a real challenge, because of joining several challenges. But hopefully I can use a book for both of these A - Z challenges... Well, see how far I get with it.
It will be fun.

Sure you can list the same book for both challenges. But if the goal is to only read 26 books through the year, it certainly becomes a bit more challenging:)

"Drømmeløs" by Jørgen Brekke. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14355963
A criminal story set partly in 2011 and partly in 1767. A murder in 1767 and 2011, and a kidnapped girl in 2011 are connected by a lullaby. An interesting story!

#5 - S

I've read "Spindelvev" by Margit Sandemo. The title means "Spider's Web". Not sure if the book is translated into English or not. I've borrowed this book from my sister, so no link.

It appears to be a ghost story, sort of the stories I read as a teenager. But it did take a turn that I didn't really expect. The "ghosts" were actually alive. A really good story!
Profile Image
J: JOURNEY to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson
---> http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14349823

Modern but very reminiscent of Frances Hodgson Burnett (the stage version of Little Lord Fauntleroy is even part of the story): Maia is an orphan who is sent from England to live with distant relatives in Brazil. Unfortunately she does not receive the warm welcome she had hoped for, but she does find some allies along the way.

The sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff during the WWII evacuation of East Prussia is one of the largest maritime disasters ever, but it is largely unknown. Sepetys looks at four different young people connected with the evacuation and the doomed ship.

Adventure/endurance memoir about a near-disaster while mountain climbing in the Peruvian Andes: most of the specifics about mountain climbing went right over my head, but the struggle up the mountain and the attempts to get down after Joe's injury make for a good story.

Title # 2

Faithful by Alice Hoffman. A quirky book mixed with a little bit of sadness too.

#6 - I

I've read the book "I død og lyst" (meaning "In Death and Desire") by Margit Sandemo. A borrowed book, so no link. By a monastery in the Dolomittes, Italy, a source of eternity was found over 350 years ago. Most of those who drank of the water got crazy, but a young man and his dog, drank from a source that wasn't poisonned. This young man did on the other hand appear very handsom! These eternal persons made the life sort of a hell for the people in the nearby village, until a Norwegian girl and 3 English mountain climbers discover the truth and manage to end the spell.

I did originally state in my first post that "words like «a» and «the», and eqivalents in other languages (like «ein»/«der» an so on in German) counts. So «A Captain's Duty» by Richard Phillips would count as A.".... But on the other hand, I don't plan to be a police here and check if it's followed or not. I know that some reads more books than others, and it's totally OK with me if some wants to do a slightly more simple challenge by not counting "The". After all, it's just for fun, to challenge oneself. The most important is to read books and enjoy it! :)

R: RAIN Reign by Ann M. Martin
---> audio download read by Laura Hamilton

Fifth-grader Rose Howard's first name is a homonym pair (rose, rows), and her dog's name is a homonym trio (rain, reign, rein). As a child who is "on the spectrum" with Asperger's and OCD, she is sometimes a challenge for the people around her, and particularly for her intermittently-employed single-parent father. At the same time, she's a bright kid with a loving heart, even if she does have a fixation on homonyms, prime numbers, and following the rules.

After Rain is lost during a superstorm, Rose comes up with a plan to find her dog, which ultimately leads to some hard choices.

I liked this as an audiobook: Rose tells the story, and both her fascinations and her anxieties come through very clearly.

M: MONSTER Hunter International by Larry Correia
---> from the Baen Free Library - http://www.baen.com/monster-hunter-international.html

Owen Pitt is trying to settle into a nice, ordinary job as an accountant when he discovers that his supervisor isn't just a terrible boss, he's a werewolf. Owen manages to stay alive by throwing him out of a 14th floor window, thereby eliminating his own job.

Fortunately, Monster Hunter International considers "killed a werewolf with his bare hands" a good job qualification, and Owen soon finds himself starting a new career.
