Author Alphabet Challenge 2017

Missing:  I, Q, U, X, Y

Potential – Erin’s challenge

Another 2017 bookish challenge. This one runs on Goodreads from 1/1/17 to 12/31/17 Author Alphabet Challenge 2017


Going from A – Z, and using authors’ first or last names, read the alphabet. For “X” and “Z” you may use authors with those hard to find letters in their names. Unless, of course, you’re a ‘purist.’
Yes, you may use an author twice, once with their first name, and again with their last.

Runwright’s Note: I’ll be using their surnames to complete the challenge
