Yes, it's a challenge, but we are all avid readers....

So use this thread to help others with those tough letters.

Is there a series, author, or book that you would recommend to help cover a letter?

Suggest it here!

Please include the letters it can work for, the length and the genre of the book

To kick things off...
The Collected Works of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
The Collected Works of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

Great book, only 258 pages, and works for F (character AJ Fikry) and I (character Ismay)

Genre: Fiction (contemporary)

--------

On the Edge (The Edge, #1) by Ilona Andrews
On the Edge by Ilona Andrews
309 pages

Genre: Paranormal Romance, but I think it is more like Urban Fantasy. Ilona Andrews books are a great option for any I needs, and this series works for E and the first book for O
