My First Book Meme – The ABC Book Meme

Yay!! This is a meme copied from Rhapsody and only because I loved it..

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.

This is a difficult task to fulfill, because obviously some letters, like S and T, have many books that might be favorites, whereas others, like Q and X are unlikely to present you with difficulties making a choice. I have chosen Fiction:

A: After the Quake: Stories by Haruki Murakami
B:  Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote
C:  Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams
D: Difficult Loves by Italo Calvino
E: Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman
F: Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen
G: Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin
H: House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
I: In Custody by Anita Desai
J: Justine by Lawrence Durrell
K: Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
L: Life: A User’s Manual by Georges Perec
M: Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
N: Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
O: Oranges are not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson
P: Possession: A Romance by A.S. Byatt
Q: Quicksand by Junichiro Tanizaki
R: Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates
S: Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
T: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
U: Underground by Haruki Murakami
V: Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
W: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
X: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
Y: Young Hearts Crying by Richard Yates
Z: Austerlitz by W.G. Sebald
