🤪Crazy creative Alphabet Challenge🤪

A challenge you can really get creative with, figuring out the different ways you can match the books you read to words on the list!

This is a NO-RULES challenge - anything goes - if you think it fits, it fits - get creative - have fun - be silly - read something unexpected. And then share how YOU defined the word and matched it to your book :)

Example: a BLUE book could be a book with a blue cover, a book with a sad theme (feeling blue), a book with a water or sky setting, a book with blues music, a book about blue cheese, a medical book (blue veins) , a book with policemen (blue uniform), a book where a character drives a blue car, a book you read sitting in a blue chair....... you get the idea!

Example 2: a NICE book could be a book with a nice (kind) character, a book set in Nice (France), a book with a nice (happy) ending, a book with a nice (pretty) cover, a book with nice (helpful) advice, a book with a nice (scenic) setting, a book with nice (cool) words, a book with a nice (good-looking) character.... you get the idea!

A - an ANCIENT book
B - a BLUE book
C - a COLD book
D - a DANGEROUS book
E - an EARTHLY book
F - a FREE book
G - a GREEN book
H - a HIT book
I - an IDOL book

The taoism of teaism

✅B - BLUE:
Death by Water - Kerry Greenwood ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Story of a Baby - Ethel Turner ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Passions have cooled with familiarity, and the rain seems to never cease lashing down.

The Peppercorn Tree - Jill Lovett ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
A gentle memoir of a down-to-earth family experiencing drama and mystery in the Sydney suburbs

✅F - FREE:
Candy Is Dandy: The Best of Ogden Nash - Ogden Nash ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Ogden Nash was very free with his verse, changing spellings and pronunciations for the best and often most comic effect. He made very good use of his poetic licence.

✅G - GREEN:
Dandelion Wine - Ray Bradbury ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Dandelion Wine is a 1957 novel by Ray Bradbury, taking place in the summer of 1928 in the fictional town of Green Town, Illinois, based upon Bradbury's childhood home of Waukegan, Illinois.

✅H - HIT: Psycho - Robert Bloch ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The book based on a true story that inspired the hit film by Alfred Hitchcock.

✅I - IDOL:
Ted and Sylvia - Emma Tennant ⭐⭐⭐⭐
"Ted has the air of one who left home a long time ago and never really returned, sending instead of himself a facsimile: bluff, good-natured and utterly alien. His hair, Sylvia notices not for the first time, has recently been cut in a pudding-bowl shape - if he weren't so godlike (he is to her and becomes greater in stature the more she is with him), he could be thought a short-spoken, ill-mannered soldier."

✅J - JUICY:
The Castlemaine Murders - Kerry Greenwood ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Oh! That Phryne Fisher - PHWOAR!

✅K - KISSED:
Ambulance Girls - Deborah Burrows ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

In memory of a lost childhood.

✅M - MYSTERIOUS:
4:50 from Paddington - Agatha Christie ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

✅N - NICE: The Murder at the Vicarage - Agatha Christie ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
We meet a nice little old lady...“Really Miss Marple is rather a dear….”

Les Misérables -Victor Hugo ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
It is not just that I own a copy of this book, but that we are so intertwined as to be a part of each other.

✅P - POETIC:
Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson - Emily Dickinson ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away,
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry –
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll –
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears a Human soul.


✅Q - QUIET:
Esther's Inheritance - Sándor Márai ⭐⭐⭐⭐
"This is why I have come," he said, more quietly now because the room had darkened and we instinctively dropped our voices as if everything -- all the objects in the room, all we had to say -- was fading with the light.

✅R - ROARING:
The History of Don Quixote, Volume 1 - Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This delightful book had me roaring with laughter!

✅S - SLEEPY:
The Big Sleep - Raymond Chandler ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on the top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you. You just slept the big sleep, not caring about the nastiness of how you died or where you fell."

✅T - TRAVELLER:
The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
“What have you come to Earth for?'

The only illustration is on the cover; it is the creature sitting on the shoulder of the protagonist.
I did really enjoy Spellslinger; it had an interesting world of magic. :)
