The ABC book challenge features a fun weekly post dedicated to interesting books that have been read or would hopefully be read starting with a specific letter of the alphabet.
And this week, we’re onto the letter “C”!
Memorable titles starting with “C”
Caraval by Stephanie Garber: when I first read this debut novel, I didn’t expect to fall so in love with it. Set in a mysterious locale with plenty of masked/unknown figures while our protagonist has to find her lost sister was more than enough to get my heart racing until the very end! I never read any book quite like this.
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth: after the craziness that was Divergent, the newest series was just as imaginative and delightfully different. I always love a bit of a forbidden love element to my stories, and oh boy, are there additional twists in this one!
Cinder by Marissa Meyer: OMG I just don’t know where to start with this one. There’s nothing I recommend more for fairy tale retellings than Marissa’s series, with this book topping it all. Like, imagining Cinderella as a cyborg mechanic who can handle herself better than any old fashion princess? Yes please!
Control by Lydia Kang: this is the only book that mixes science in a beautiful way. Coming from a heavy science background, I love seeing the scientific bits dropping here and there while being wholly creative with the not-so-scientifically-proven twists. Exciting and intriguing, this book captivated me from start to finish!
Crash into You by Katie McGarry: as contemporaries go, nothing beats out Katie, especially in a book such as this with a really hot guy and a girl protagonist whom I can totally relate to with anxiety problems. I loved the chemistry and the slow-burn buildup in the relationship. Just pure perfection ♥️
Titles I want to read starting with “C”
Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J Maas: Selina Kyle + SJM? Sign me up. There’s really nothing else that needs to be said. Except maybe, why the heck did I not read this book sooner?
Children of Blood and Bone by Toni Adeyemi: I’ve heard many good things about this book, although at first the synopsis didn’t immediately attract my attention. I can’t wait to see what the hype is all about.
Circle of Shadows by Evelyn Skye: Second series by Evelyn and I have this ARC just waiting for me to crack open. I love the sounds of stealthy protagonists and schools for learning how to fight! I can’t wait to see what more she has to bring to the table.
Contagion by Erin Bowman: The description sounds scary and mildly Alien-esque but in the vein of trying to read more different genres, toeing the line between sci-fi thriller and horror sounds like it should be a different kind of fun indeed.
The Cursed Sea by Lauren DeStefano: Book 2 after The Glass Spare, which frankly left me hanging there at the end. I just want some closure to the curse upon the protagonist! Is that too much to ask??
Well, what do you think? Did I crack out a few obscure titles or are these ALSO on your list??
