So, this is probably going to be my last 2011 challenge.  I didn’t do such a great job with my challenges last year (I did rather terribly, actually), so this year I am going for a “less is more” approach.  But I wanted to join a challenge which would actually challenge me.  The Off the Shelf and 2012 Debut Author challenges both have me reading books I probably would have read anyways – but I thought that an A-Z challenge might get me to pick up books that would have stayed on the shelf.

Not to mention Book Junky is including a bunch of giveaways along with the challenge!  Always a good incentive.  The plan is to read 26 books in 2011 with titles that go through the alphabet.  You can sign up for the challenge here!

Obviously, there are quite a few gaps in this! I especially need something to fill V, X and Z – as all I have for V right now is Vanity Fair… which is a bit too much of a challenge for me!

So here’s my planned A-Z list:

  • A –  Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund
  • B – Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast by Robin Mckinley
  • C – Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  • D – Delirium by Lauren Oliver
  • E – Enclave by Ann Aguirre
  • F – Firmin: Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife by Sam Savage
  • G – Green-Eyed Demon by Jaye Wells
  • H – The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • IImmortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan
  • J – 
  • K –
  • LLover Revealed by J.R. Ward
  • M – Moloka’i by Alan Brennert
  • N – Night Shift by Lilith Saintcrow
  • O – Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
  • P – Pride by Rachel Vincent
  • Q –
  • R – Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
  • S Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
  • T – Temeraire by Naomi Novik
  • U –
  • V –
  • W – Wake by Lisa McMann
  • X – 13 to Life by Shannon Delany (Ok, so X is 10 in roman numerals… plus 3 is 13. It counts, dammit.)
  • Y –
  • Z –

19/26 books read!
