TBR Alphabet Tag

Today’s post is the TBR Alphabet tag, which I kind of made up myself but has probably also been done before. I also just can’t get over the fact when you say ‘to-be-read, al-pha-bet’ out loud, it kind of sounds like it rhymes (is that just me being weird….? Probably.)

I thought it would be fun to see how many books I can fill in for this.


  • Name a book title from your TBR for every letter of the alphabet (can exclude words like ‘the’ if needs be) – these must be books that you have physical/e-book copies of and not ones you intend on getting but haven’t yet.
  • Try and include different authors for every single one
  • At the bottom of your list put how many you could fill in (out of 25)
  • Tag other people to join in and link back to the person who tagged you!

So, without further ado, here is my TBR alphabet:

A is for… After Me Comes the Flood by Sarah Perry

B is for… Beauty in the Breakdown by Tegan Anderson

C is for… Contagion by Terri Terry

D is for… Did you see Melody? by Sophie Hannah

E is for… Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

F is for… Fifty Fifty by James Patterson

G is for… Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

H is for… Hydra by Matt Wesolowski

I is for… Ink by Alice Broadway

J is for…

Am I allowed to say just any Jane Austen book? I don’t have any title beginning with a J on my TBR.

K is for… (The) Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

L is for…

I found it really depressing I couldn’t find one beginning with L in my pile.

M is for… (13) Minutes by Sarah Pinborough

N is for… .

…unfortunately ‘Nooooo, I don’t have one starting with N’.

O is for… (The) Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan

P is for… Point Blanc by Anthony Horowitz

Q is for…

My TBR let me down again.

R is for… (99) Red Balloons by Elisabeth Carpenter

S is for… Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

T is for… Thirteen by Tom Hoyle

U is for…

Ugh, I can’t fill this one in either. (p.s. If I’d bought Undead Girl Gang, I could have filled this one in but I haven’t quite yet…)

V is for… (The) Vanishing Season by Joanna Schaffhausen

W is for… Where the World Ends by Geraldine McCaughrean

X is for…

Never actually seen a book with a title beginning with X.

Y is for… Young, Gifted & Dead by Lucy Carver

Z is for…

Zzz, I hope you haven’t fallen asleep before the end of the post.

I found that quite frustrating. There are so many good books I could have put in to fill gaps but I either 1) don’t quite own it yet (so it isn’t in my physical tbr pile, just in my ‘to buy’ list.) or 2) Was by an author I had already put down for another book for a different letter. Buttttt, I got 19/25 which I don’t think is too bad (right?)!

I tag:

Of course don’t feel obliged to do it but I would love to see how well you do! Or just tag some friends you think would like to have a go.

How many books do you think you could write down for this challenge? Have you read any of the books I mentioned?

Thanks for reading! Have a great day,
