The Outlander Series Acrostic Reading Challenge 2017


Since this is our third year doing this challenge and Voyager is a short title, we'll focus on reading books whose titles begin with each letter in "Third: Voyager" - eliminating the duplicate "r" - during the year. Or, if you prefer, you can do it with authors' last names that begin which each of the letters.

Just list the letters in your own post and then come back and update it as you go along. Only the letters in Bold will count for the challenge, but if you choose to add an extra for the duplicated letter, you can, of course, do that.

I managed to finish this for 2016 but it was difficult. I'm going to try to do it this year by author's last names. It might be easier to select books that way.

T - Elle S'appelait Emma by Alain Thiesse
H - The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
I - Pluie Noire by Masuji Ibuse
r
D - The Siege by Helen Dunmore

V - L'arrache Coeur by Boris Vian
O - The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka
Y
A - Flight by Sherman Alexie
G - The Angry Tide by Winston Graham
E
R - Assia, Mama est Là by Meriam Rhaiem
