The ABC Book Challenge | Letter C
Hello beautiful readers!! How are you guys doing? I hope everything’s good and that you all had a productive week ☺️ If not, at least I hope that you were able to relax and have some time for yourselves. For those in the United States, I know this is a really stressful time for you. I hope everything turns out ok and that you all stay safe 🤗. I know there has been a lot of fear for potential protests, regardless of who wins. My heart goes out to all of you ❤️
On a happier note, I just finished my Goodreads Reading Challenge! I am so happy to have completed it. Halfway through the year I was doing horrible, as noticeable in my 😬 2020 Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 😬. However, since July, I’ve picked up many books and successfully got out of my reading slump. I don’t think I’ll be able to read more books than 2018 (which has been my best year so far), but I definitely beat 2019, so I’m elated. How has your reading been this year?
Anyways, today I bring you the next letter in the ABC book challenge which is the ‘C‘! ‘C’ for cupcake 🧁, crown 👑, caterpillar 🐛, coconut 🥥, and chess ♟.
So far, this one has definitely been my favorite (even though it’s only the third one) because it is bursting with wonderful books. What I mean by this is that there are (surprisingly) so many books that I love that start with this letter, that I had a hard time narrowing them down. But, I was able to pull off including only favorites of mine on the list 😆, so I’m really excited to share them with you guys (they’re pretty well known, though. I’m not much of an enigma😅).
But before we start, can I please point out that the amount of books Cassandra Clare has that start with a C is absolutely absurd. She clearly has a thing for alliterations.
Memorable titles that start with a ‘C’
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
I am a big Shadowhunter fan, as many of you probably know. I think that City of Heavenly Fire is one of the best books set in this world. The action, the drama, the romance, the friendships… It is all so well done and intertwined. I think this is a wonderful ending to The Mortal Instruments series, as well as an exceptional introduction to The Dark Artifices.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I think this is my favorite book from The Hunger Games trilogy. The first one is good and definitely entertaining, but I’m not usually the biggest fan of introductory books. Mockingjay, on the other hand, makes me really sad and was kind of hard to process (that doesn’t mean it isn’t good as well). But, Catching Fire is so exciting and action packed. I ship Peeta and Katniss so much, and this book was just amazing in regards to that. Also, the politics start to gear up even more, the twist at the beginning is heartbreaking, and the cliffhanger at the end… It is all so unexpected and wonderful. I had a great time when I first read it.
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Another favorite!! Cress is my favorite installment of The Lunar Chronicles. Now that I think about it, I think I’m a big fan of Rapunzel in general, cause I love Tangled as well.
Marissa Meyer did an amazing job in rehashing these stories. Cress, specifically, starts off in space and she’s a hacker. The technology element definitely gives this story originality, and along with the adventure and characters it all ads up to an incredibly exciting story. It is the perfect lead up to the last book. In other words, please read this if you haven’t yet.
Gregor and the Code of Claw by Suzanne Collins
My last favorite that I included in this list is The Code of Claw–the last book in the Gregor the Overlander series. Even though this name is a handful, I say it starts with a C so don’t come at me, please. Anyways, this is a Middle Grade series and it is a wondrous ride. It is super original from beginning to end and, honestly, I would be willing to read thirty more books set in this world if the author decided so. I love all of the characters and the fighting scenes are A list.
Can you guys remember any memorable titles that start with a ‘C’? Let me know, and I hope you have a nice weekend!

Ahh congrats on finishing your Goodreads challenge! Yes yes The Hunger Games was one of those precious books that got me hooked onto reading and I totally agree about enjoying how the politics start playing a huge role – totally no sign of second book syndrome! 😊
And I spy Cress, I remember being so shocked at the twist from the original tale! I loved Tangled as well (the songs are so so good!) Anyways, lovely post Pilar!❤
Thank you, I’m so glad you liked it!! Cress and Tangled definitely helped me realize that I have a bit of an obsession with Rapunzel. There was a time I watched that movie almost three times a week 😅 (I’m aware that I had a problem…).
Ahhh – this list!!! It has soooo many of my favorites on it! 😊😊😊 Catching Fire is also my favorite of the series, and I love that you put Gregor and the Code of Claw on here as well 😍 Honestly, I have never sobbed as much reading a book as I did during that one – you probably know which scene I’m talking about 😭
Yes!! That ending had me sobbing for a long time 😭😭 Gregor the Overlander does not get the credit and recognition it deserves.
Can’t think of a book that starts with a C—but can think of an author. I have fallen in love with Land of Stories by Chris Colfer during my years at college.
Yesterday- I started a reading challenge myself. Now trying to read 50 books in a 5 yrs- which starts this year. For the Classics Club- don’t know if I can achieve it, but will attempt.
That’s great! I think you will be able to read the 50 books! Just make sure to pick novels that you think you will really like. That will really help you read them at a faster pace!
And I have been looking forward to reading a book by Chris Colfer. I know him from Glee and he’s a great actor!
I already read a lot this year. The crazy thing is some classics I read have been from the past.
Planning to reread both Narnia and HP next year- those are long series.
I’ve read Harry Potter twice and it’s great. I haven’t read Narnia, but I really want to ☺️
Hope you decide to read Narnia.
I just have to balance between my love of fantasy and classics
