Reading Challenge: 2018 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

Hello Book Lovers! I so love to participate in challenges and they are so fun along with the reading. So I have finally decided to participate in this A to Z reading Challenge titled Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge moderated by Escape With Dollycas Into a Good Book. I always like challenges where I don’t have to stick to particular category and what other challenge can be the best other than this.

You can also visit the challenge page HERE. But anyway I’m pasting the details below∼∼∼


This challenge will run from January 1st, 2018 until December 31st, 2018.

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 a title starting with every letter of the alphabet.

You can drop the A’s and The’s from the book titles as shown below.

The First Main Word Needs To Be
The Letter You Are Counting

Except For those pesky Q, X AND Z titles then the word that starts with the challenge letter can be anywhere in the title.

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 books you are reading to the list. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find books to fit.


B – Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet. For example: A – Antiques Wanted by Barbara Allan B – Biscuits and Slashed Browns by Maddie Day C – Class Reunions Are Murder by Libby Klein D- The Diva Cooks Up A Storm by Krista Davis, etc..

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

And the coolest thing is,

Non-bloggers you can join too! Just keep track any way you wish. You can even set up a special shelf on 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 Challenge and you are all set.

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

There is also a very active group on Facebook where you can share your books read and converse with others taking part in the challenge. Alphabet Soup Challenge –  You can share your accomplishments throughout year there. Right now they are finishing this year’s challenge but it will switch over to the new year on January 1.

You can sign up using Google Forms. Sign Up Here, so that you will be informed about any changes to the challenge or about special events via email.

Ready to join??

Isn’t that cool and interesting?

So I’m going to make a A to Z book list for this challenge and add books to it as soon as I finish reading them and then attach it along with this post in the main Menu of my blog under Reading challenge. Also I have made self on Goodreads that is here.

Have you already signed up for this challenge? If so what are the book are you reading for the challenge? Let me know your thoughts in the comment-box below.

  1. Thank you! I’ve been looking for a challenge I could join since the first of the year. I think I could do this and signed up today. Question that I didn’t see answered: Can I retroactively include the books I’ve read since the beginning of the year?
