Help me with my A-Z Reading Challenge!

OK, I know it's only February, and I know I've got until the end of the year to complete this challenge (learn more about it here). I know that I'm doing pretty awesome on all my challenges, overall (for instance, I've already read 9 of the 26 books for this challenge).

BUT. I have a list of titles I want to read (you can see all of my challenges, and the titles I've picked, on my 2011 Reading Challenges page) and every time I refer back to it, all I can see are the empty spaces for K, N, and Q. Argh.

I'd love some help from my friends. Are you doing this challenge? What are your K, N, and Q books? If you're not doing the challenge, can you recommend some books that start with K, N, and/or Q? I could put Need by Carrie Jones on my list, but for some reason I'm not all that keen to read it--I've heard great things about the series, I'm just not that into paranormal right now. I'm tempted to stretch the rules a bit and add They Called Themselves the KKK, by Susan Campbell Bartoletti, down for my K choice, but if there's something else out there that starts with K, even better.

So, in a nutshell: YA titles that start with K, N, and/or Q. Preferably not paranormal. They don't have to be new titles. Any suggestions?

Enjoy your reading!


  1. Hi!

    I don't know if you've read that one already, but my choice for N is North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley.

    I don't have anything for Q yet, either - the only YA book I know that stars with Q is The Queen of Everyting by Deb Caletti. I read that last year, but didn't like it. You could still give it a try, though.

    Hope this helps!

  2. Thanks for the suggestions, Hannah! I've already read North of Beautiful (and liked it, if I recall), but not the Queen of Everything, I'll look into that one!

  3. Greetings.

    For K: Kimchi & Calamari came up in my search for "K" books. I thought it looked interesting.

    For N: Nation by Terry Pratchett, about a shipwreck, I think.

    For Q:
    This one's supposed to be a pretty good read, and I've got it on my to-read list: Quest for a Maid by Frances Mary Hendry.

    Hope this helps or at least gives you some to consider. Enjoying your blog, by the way. First time visitor.

  4. @LeviSamJuno: thanks for the suggestions, and for following--always glad to hear from new followers. Will definitely look into the titles you mentioned!
