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 “F”!
Memorable titles starting with “F”
Fairest by Gail Carson Levine: I grew up reading Gail’s books and I absolutely loved this rendition of Snow White! It’s set in the familiar world of Ella Enchanted (which was also a memorable title during week E!), so it’s just as imaginative but you can easily still see the original fairy tale plot points in it. Even after all these years, I still recommend this book (and reread it a number of times too)!
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West: One of my first books by Kasie, I’m also down for a wonderful fake boyfriend trope where the two end up falling for each other for real. She does it well, keeping it sweet and realistic. My favourite combination for a feel-good contemporary!
Free to Fall by Lauren Miller: The first words that come to mind with this book is always this: thought provoking. Set in a “futuristic” world that you can totally see happening in our very present day and age, what happens when we use an app to decide our every decision? Do we then one day lose our own ability to choose for ourselves? It’s these kinds of things that kept me flipping right through the entire novel in a short sitting!
Frostfire by Amanda Hocking: Set in a familiar world created by Amanda, this first book in a companion trilogy features a bunch of new characters (and short cameos of old ones!) in another exciting adventure with changelings and trolls! This book hooked me in from the start, especially the little bits of forbidden romance between the protagonist and her slightly older boss.
Titles I want to read starting with “F”
Fame, Fate and the First Kiss by Kasie West: I started the ARC and I’m hoping this one won’t fail me as it’s the companion novel to my favourite Kasie West book to date. I’m not feeling the romance yet but I hope it’ll help propel me through the rest of it soon!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: I know, I’m really late to the party on this one but I’ve had it on my TBR for a long while. I’m just hoping the hype doesn’t elevate my expectations too high.
Finale by Stephanie Garber: The conclusion to the Caraval trilogy, I’m like bursting at the seams in excitement to read this when it comes out. I adored the world and the Caraval game that was introduced in book 1, so I really hope everything turns out well. Only reading it will tell!
Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott: I’ve seen this book around as a staff pick at my bookstore, so that automatically piques my interest. And then I hear there’s a movie coming out next spring starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson and I’m completely ready to read this hospital romance (which is normally not my kind of novel).
The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: I’ve actually put this down once before, but it’s marketed as the YA version of the TV show Scandal. I’m not sure how accurate that is but I’m thinking of giving it a second go just ’cause I really like Jennifer Barnes.
For a Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig: There’s not much about this book that I know about aside from possible dragons and Asian cultural influences mixed into the plot. Either way, that’s enough to get me excited so I suppose we’ll see if that proves to be true!
Have you read any of these “F” letter books that I want to read? If yes, what was your opinion on them? And were you just as excited about some of the books I loved?
