ABC Book Challenge: C & D

I’ve seen this book challenge around for a while now and traced it back to Classy x Book Reviews. It seemed like a fun challenge to do, until I started going through my TBR. I have a fairly sizeable TBR and it is out of control. I have hundreds of books and it seems that nearly half of them are unread.

Having said that, this challenge should be a real eye opener of what I’m going to read or not going to read. I feel a purge coming on.

Most Memorable Books


  • I read Cane by Jean Toomer in a college literature class and really enjoyed it. And, I still have my college copy from years ago; which I will be rereading for the Back to the Classics reading challenge prompt #8 Read a Classic Novella.
  • Ah, A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. I read this several years ago for a book club and really enjoyed it. I keep meaning to revisit it because I’m still not sure how I feel about the message.
  • I can’t really say I remember what happened in Jo Nesbo’s Cockroaches, but when I was coming up with this list it was one of the first titles that jumped in my head. I mean really cockroaches. They are (outside of ants) are the only bugs that scare me.

Books Still on My TBR

Most Memorable Books


  • I really have a love/hate relationship with Joyce. I read Dubliners in college and there are still stories I remember.

Books Still on My TBR

One day. One day I’ll get to them.🤞

What are some of the most memorable books you’ve read? And what books are still on your TBR?

  1. Definitely wouldn’t class A Clockwork Orange as a favourite though it was certainly memorable. A C that is still on my shelf is Cousin Bette by Balzac. I keep meaning to read something else by him after enjoying Old Goriot but there the book still sits gathering dust


    • I understand. I’m not sure how I feel about either. And maybe once I reread it it will either be a favorite or not.

      I’m ashamed to say I’ve never read Balzac and he’s an author that’s be on my TBR for sometime.
