Alphabet Books Goal: Update 1

1 month update

In May I posted an Alphabet Book Goal. It was a two part goal: by the end of Summer Vacation I wanted to have reviewed one book for every letter of the alphabet and by the end of the year I wanted to have reviewed two books for every letter.

One downfall of the post, was that I made a nice, long list of all the books that might work for the goal and then I changed how I set up my Book Review Page. A lot of the books I had planned to use – the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (non-fiction), Astonishing X-Men: Gifted (comic novelization), and Red Madness (non-fiction) to name a few – no longer worked with the new set up that divided books by genre: Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Comics. So I had to rethink some of the books I had planned to use, but thankfully I had listed more than I needed in most cases, so I had some to spare (most of the damage was done where two books were needed, so I’ll be struggling more for the second half of my goal).

I’m glad I did it though, it’s making my page look a lot nicer and much more full, and it got me to read things that I might not otherwise!

Progress Made:

These are the reviews I’ve posted since I started my goal.

Now I Need: 19

Next to the letter is the number of reviews I still need,
and below that are some books that would work for my goal.
If you have any ideas please share!!
