I followed Brenna’s lead and used my Goodreads to find these. There is no way I would have been able to remember these all on my own! Even so, sadly, I have not read at least one book starting with every letter of the alphabet. For D, Q, Y, and Z, I chose titles off of my my to-read list. For U, I’m actually currently reading two books both starting with U, and I like both of them so far. For X, we just had to get creative and find titles that even had “X” anywhere in the name, not just the beginning.
I’m thinking this would be cool to do every year, or every couple of years, assuming I keep up with both this blog and my Goodreads account.
