It's time for the next game! This one will run all week so step in whenever you need a small break from the reading.

- The first person posts a book title starting with an A
- The second person posts a book title starting with a B, but this book has to be somewhat connected to the previous one.
- Explain to us how your book is connected to the previous one. You can get creative with the connection! It can be a similar word in the title, by the same author, by an author with the same first or last name, similar cover, set in the same place, etc.
- The third person posts a book title starting with a C, etc.
- When we arrive at Z, we start again.

I'll start with All the Ugly and Wonderful Things
