2022 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

Welcome aboard, train wreck.

In true train wreck fashion, I’m driving myself mad working on my TBR for 2022. You wouldn’t think it was a big deal. Just pick up a book and read it. But it’s not that simple.

If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment,
share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen.

Please consider donating to help keep this going. $1 and I’ll ask you what your favorite book is so we can talk about it. $5 and I’ll write a review of a book you suggest. $10 and I’ll write a blog suggested by you. I do post affiliate links in my blogs. I get commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post. But this comes at no extra cost to you. So, thank you.

If you look up Libra in the dictionary, you’ll see my picture. Standard operating indecisive Libra. The thing is, I want to read all the books but I can only read so much. So, I’ve started getting into reading challenges. They set an expectation and give boundaries but they also give me the freedom to read what I want in those parameters. It’s like a book club with less rules. (Nothing against my book clubs. I love yas. And if you need a book club, here are a few of my faves. The ParaCozy Book Club https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4VY1KTWXqMODEh8F9hp4_g features cozy mysteries with a paranormal touch. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9wHHIeI1Oj7Fkb8_WXVmuBYQXS2bFLMx The Cozy Escape Book Club is just plain old regular cozy mysteries. Lisa and Court are so funny and personable and I love them so much.)

But they’re not a challenge per se. So, to the interwebs I went in search of something to help me get my TBR together. And I found this.

Short version, all you have to do is read a book that starts with a letter of the alphabet. I mean, how easy is that? (Damn you, letter X!)

So, here’s my TBR so far. There’s only twenty six books here. My goal is a hundred for the year. This doesn’t include the fourteen rom coms I’m planning on reading in February or the thirteen horror books for October or the twenty five Christmas books for December. Or any book club books. Or ARC copies I receive.

You know, that’s a lot of books when it’s laid out like that.

On to the TBR.
