ABC Book Challenge: H

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 which is YUGE and is completely and utterly 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’ve read, what’s on my TBR and what I’m going to read or not read. Could there be a purge in the very near future?

Most Memorable Books

And, here we are with another ABC Challenge. This go-round we’re talking about books beginning with the letter H. The following books are memorable only because I didn’t care for them.

Most Memorable Books


  • I read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood a few years ago for a book club and I was in the minority. I wasn’t a fan. Now I feel like I need to go back and reread especially with all the things going on politically with women’s rights and the Me Too Movement.
  • The first time I read Hard Times by Charles Dickens was in high school and I will have to say – Not. A. Fan. Then I had to read it in college. Again not a fan. But then, I was Johnny Come Lately to register for my seminar class and the only thing available was a Dickens class. I wonder why. Anyway, had to read it AGAIN, and have to admit I enjoyed it. I chalk it up to having lived a few life experiences.
  • Well, well, well I might be in the minority on this, but I was not a fan of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House. It wasn’t scary. Not even a little bit. It wasn’t even psychologically thrilling.
  • For the love of . . . What is it with Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? I tried reading this. I tried listening to it. And nothing worked. I made it about 1/3 of the way through and had to DNF it.

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?

    I think it probably helps a lot if you’re 14 the first time you read the Hitchhiker’s Guide. I adore Adams, and that is my theory.
