My Book List for #LitsyAtoZ

4th January 2017

I think I’ve rambled about Litsy once or twice.  Some groovy people over there are doing the #LitsyAtoZ challenge.

The last time I tried something like this, I got stuck on E.

I’m not usually this organised, but I thought if I listed my book choices I might actually read through them.

I’ve decided to list by author.  You can also list by title or mix it up.

A – Cat’s Eye – Margaret Atwood,  or You Will Know Me – Megan Abbot,  or Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard

B – The Muse – Jessie Burton

C – The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet – Becky Chambers, or The Wangs Vs The World – Jade Chang

D – You’re Never Weird on The Internet – Felicia Day,  or The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair – Joël Dicker

E – Heroes of The Frontier – Dave Eggers

F – My Brilliant Friend – Elena Ferrante, or The Sunlit Pilgrams – Jenni Fagan

G – & Sons – David Gilbert

H -Before the Fall – Noah Hawley

I – The Remains of the Day – Kazuo Ishiguro

J – A Brief History of Seven Killings – Marlon James

K – Crazy Rich Asians – Kevin Kwan

L – The Couple Next Door – Shari Lapena

M – The Sea, The Sea – Iris Murdoch, or Hystopia – David Means

N –  Mind’s Eye – Hakan Nesser

O – This Must Be The Place – Maggie O’ Farrell

P – Commonwealth – Ann Patchet

Q -The 500 – Matthew Quirk

R – Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell, or Empire Falls – Richard Russo

S – The Hundred Lives of Lizzie Lovett – Chelsea Sedoti, or Olive Kitteridge – Elizabeth Strout

T – All My Puny Sorrows – Miriam Toews

U – Rabbit, Run – John Updike

V – Take The Cannoli – Sarah Vowell

W – Second Life – S J Watson

X – Death of a Red Heroine – Qiu Xiaolong

Y – The Sun is Also A Star – Nicola Yoon, or Shelter – Jung Yun

Z – Mislaid – Nell Zink


Might do these in order, but a few are calling to me.

For the letters with more than one option, help me choose!

I have MOST of these, so reading through them might make a small dent in my Mount TBR

Must check this year’s Read Harder Challenge to see if there’s overlap.

What are your reading goals this year?

Here are a few more reading challenges I found that might interest you/me.

    Aveyard or Atwood – what opposite ends of the spectrum! Depends on whether you fancy literature or YA at the moment of choice 🙂

      That seems to be the two sides of my reading brain. And c’mon, all my choices are opposites. This was me being concise. Also want to get into more sci-fi-ish stuff, so.

      How did NaNo treat you?

    I vote for Becky Chambers and Felicia Day 🙂 Day does the audio of the book herself and it’s great. And I can’t stop talking about how much I love Chambers’ Wayfarer books. 🙂

    So many good ones here! I have Commonwealth high on my list as well. And, you know, I’ve never read Iris Murdoch. Must rectify that this year!

      Feel like reading Commonwealth or Iris at the same time? Those are two I would bump up!
