2024 A to Z Reading Challenge (+PDF)


Hey book friends! I made it two months into the year thinking that I was only going to host one challenge. But the A to Z Reading Challenge was the first I ever hosted and it’s always been my favorite … plus, I need a few more letters for my review indexes ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, as of today, the 2024 A to Z Reading Challenge is officially back (on a bit smaller of a scale than the Booknerd Backlist Reading Challenge)!

Yay, it’s back! But tell me a bit about the A to Z Reading Challenge in case I’m new …

The A to Z Reading Challenge is one of the simplest reading challenges out there. During the year, you read books whose titles start with each letter of the alphabet.

I’m choosing to do my challenge using book titles, but if you choose, you can also complete the challenge using the author’s name (this is a LOT harder to me, as most of my books are one author ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ).

Save the Date!

The 2024 A to Z Reading Challenge is happening

February 17, 2024 (today!) – December 31, 2024

Any book you read from today (February 17, 2024) until 11:59pm on December 31 will count toward the 2024 reading challenge!

Download your Challenge printables!

Like with the 2024 Booknerd Backlist Reading Challenge, the A to Z Challenge comes with one of a kind printables and reading trackers! Use these throughout the challenge to track your progress.

**If there are any other pages you would like to see for this challenge, feel free to DM me on Instagram! I will be creating an extended version of the Challenge printables that will be available Spring 2024.

And the rules are SUPER simple …

I’m not a fan of challenges that have a ton of rules. So just a few basics and we’re good to go!

Rule #1: This is a 2024 reading challenge … so you need to start AND finish your book in 2024.
Rule #2: See instructions for “a”, “an”, and “the” below.
Rule #3: To count for the giveaway at the end of the year, you must review the book. Why? Because authors are amazing and need our help!

That’s it! Read a book starting with each letter of the alphabet and have fun!

What about “A”, “An”, or “The”?

Many book reviewers handle these pesky little words differently. To simplify things for the 2024 A to Z Reading Challenge, we’re going to all do them the same way.

If your book title starts with “a”, “an”, or “the” – the title will count as the SECOND word.

Example (because I’m a visual learner): My book’s title is The Wicked Truth by Melissa Foster. This book will count as “W” because –> Wicked Truth, The.

Make sense? If not, feel free to comment below or DM me on socials. I’m happy to help!

How do I sign up?

There’s no official sign-up this year but if you want to read along with us, feel free to share a blog/social media post of your reading goals. A fantastic way to spread the word is to share a TBR for the A to Z Reading Challenge! Whatever you choose to do, make sure to come back and link it in the comments so we can check it out!

If you’re looking for a graphic to use, feel free to grab our challenge button below to showcase on your blog!

The 2024 A to Z Reading Challenge is on The StoryGraph, too!

I am LOVING using The StoryGraph to track my reading progress so, like the Booknerd Backlist Challenge, I’ve created an A to Z Challenge on The StoryGraph, too!

If you don’t know much about The StoryGraph – it’s the perfect Goodreads alternative – female-owned with a fantastic community, giveaways just like Goodreads, and it’s not controlled by Amazon!

So if you’re all about getting social with your reading challenges (like many readers are!), check out the 2024 A to Z Reading Challenge on The StoryGraph! (pssst … you can easily add books to the prompts if you join on The StoryGraph – and I will be adding a few suggestions for some of the trickier letters if you get stuck!)

End of the year GIVEAWAY!

Just like the 2024 Booknerd Backlist Reading Challenge, there will be a GIVEAWAY at the end of the year! Because I’ve had bad luck with scammers and gift cards before, there will not be a gift card up for grabs. Instead …

ONE lucky winner will receive a book of their choosing on Amazon (up to a $20 value).

**Note: You do not have to officially announce your participation in the challenge to be entered into the giveaway. All you have to do is link up ONE review in the linky below.

Sharing is caring ๐Ÿ’• If you’re excited about the A to Z Reading Challenge, please pin one of the images below to your favorite BOOKISH board on Pinterest! Thank you!

And now, for the review link-up!

Just a couple quick things before we get started ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Please make sure all links go directly to your book review (ex. blog post review, The StoryGraph, Instagram, TikTok) and not to your blog home page. Only links that go directly to the review will be entered into the giveaway at the end of the year.
  2. This link-up will remain open until January 3, 2025 (to give you time to review those last-minute reads).
  3. If you’re sharing your reviews on social media, don’t forget to use the hashtags #AtoZReadingChallengeTBL24 and #2024AtoZReadingChallenge so we can share your reviews! Tag @the.booknerd.lifestyle on Instagram or @bknerdlifestyle on Twitter/X.

If you have any questions about the review link-up or the reading challenge itself, leave a comment below or DM me on Instagram or Twitter/X.

Happiest of reading, xo!
