ABC Book Meme

ABC Book Meme

For this meme, you list a favorite book that starts with each letter of the alphabet. If you don't have a book for a letter (such as Z or X) than you can substitute a favorite book that simply has that letter in the title (ex. The Lost City of Z or Hot Six by Janet Evanovich). However, you can only do this a maximum of 3 times. (Z, X, and Q. But not Z, X, Q, and V.) Books can be of any genre from fiction to non-fiction to poetry to textbooks.

A good idea for finding some new reading recommendations. I've read City of Thieves
The Death of Ivan Ilych
Great Expectations
Never Let Me Go
I enjoyed them all. I'll definitely try The Virgin in the Garden since you like it so much. I have Alias Grace and Jane Eyre on my shelves-glad to know you they are favourites of yours. And I see a couple of names that are new to me. Celestine Vaite, Hillary Carlip, and Josip Novakovich, I'll have to look them up. Thanks.

This is a fun meme! I'm not sure how far I'd get with it though. Jane Eyre and Everything is Illuminated are two of my favorites as well.
