To complete this challenge you will need to *spell out the names of 26 gods and goddesses, each one beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. You may use gods and goddesses from any mythology (Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Norse, Celtic etc) and don't need to stick to just one mythology.


A - Athena
B - Bacchus
C - Cupid

For the harder letters Q, U, X, Y and Z you can use any god or goddess that has that letter somewhere in it's name.


Q - Serqet


For this challenge you can use:

Book titles ('the', 'an' and 'a' should be ignored)
Authors initials
Series names (first letter)
Main character first or last names ((view spoiler))


B - Elizabeth Bennett - Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen (main character name)
O - Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck (title)
O - On Dublin Street - Down London Road - Samantha Young (series name)
K - Misery - Stephen King (author last name)

Duration: Open Ended


*Each book may only be used for one letter
*To count a book towards a challenge you must read the majority of it after the start date of the challenge.
*For each book that you read please post a link to the book, the author and the date you finished it.
*All genres and formats are fine.
*Re-reads are allowed.
*No page minimum.
*Please update your original post as you go but also post an occasional message to let us know how you're getting on, if you would like to.

Welcome to more spelling craziness Connie!

I like to look at it this way - by starting them all at the same time we will only need to read one or two "difficult" letters and count them for all the spell outs - but if we made ourselves finish one challenge before starting another one we'd have to find loads of X's and Z's. So actually we're being sensible by signing up for everything! ;)

Hi Caprice - great to have you join us! (What are your cats names?)

Athena, Loki, Mercury and Isis-all rescues, all named for traits in the personalities and/or appearances. Like Loki is all black and though he's settled somewhat now, he was always into some mischief when he was younger.

message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

They're great names. I used to have cats called Freya and Cassiopeia - my niece named them so I'm not sure why!

Connie N. | 3367 comments Glad to have you as a fellow addict, CC!

message 24: by John (new)

John | 14 comments What do you do in here? Some of you probably know who I am but for the ones that don't, I am the "new kid" literally. I am only 13soon to be 14 so I may not be able to keep up with you guys and gals, dut I will try to do my best.
So back to my original question what do you do for this and how do you do it?

John wrote: "So back to my original question what do you do for this and how do you do it?..."

Hi John, first you need to choose your gods and goddesses, one for each letter of the alphabet. There are some links in the first post to help you with ideas or you can check out other players lists. Once you have your list you need to spell out those names using the titles, or authors initials of books you read.

For instance, if you read Insurgent - Veronica Roth you could use it to fill in one of the I's, V's or R's on your list.

Some people like to make it a little easier by having the option of using main character initials and series titles too, so in this case you could use your book for B, P or T (Beatrice 'Tris' Prior) or D (Divergent series)

You may only use each book for one letter on your list though.

You don't need to try and keep up with anyone as there is no time limit on this challenge. Just read at your own pace and slot your books in where they fit.

Full instructions are in the first post at the top of the page and you can look at other players posts to see how to set your challenge out.

Hope that helps :)

message 26: by John (new)

John | 14 comments Is there a letter limitation like in other spell outs?
I also put this in the meat and great but I will also put it in here. Did anyone have problems with dad and/or stepdad when they were growing up?
This has nothing to do with this spell out but if anyone here goes on to YouTube please go and check out my channel at John McMenimen. And the video is titled My first ever vid. Please leave a like and a comment on what I could do better on. Subscribe if you want. Do not worry about hurting my feelings, the kids in school say I have no feelings. Sometimes in a good way but most of the time not so good ways.
Yes the comment above did help a little but I can probably find out how to do it if I just start doing it.
If I am tipping or posting too much just say so and I will back off a bit.

Not really sure what you mean by letter limitation?

message 28: by John (new)

John | 14 comments Like do you have to have x amount of letters.

message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

No, you can use whichever gods or goddesses you want as long as they start with the right letter. I've used a mixture of short names and longer names but you can do all short names if you like :)

message 30: by [deleted user] (new)
