This week’s topic was a bit of a random one, but also seemed like fun! The prompt was to find books that start with the letter of your choice. I didn’t really care what letter I picked, so I decided to use a random letter generator and go with whatever it gave me. I definitly had a moment of panic after making that decision in case it decided to give me an X or a Q, but luckily it was the letter I! This is definitely a letter that’s a little more challenging than some of the others since I couldn’t immediately think of too many books that would fit. I know a lot of people have done some kind alphabet challenge with their reading at some point, and choose either book titles or authors’ names that start with a particular letter, but I’ve never done this. I guess technically it’s happened naturally through some of my challenges anyway since I often have at least a few prompts that require books that start with specific letters, and even have the letter I as a prompt this year! I decided to look through my TBR list on Goodreads and pull out some of the books that start with the letter I instead of trying to come up with them all on my own, even though that might be cheating a bit. Since the reason for picking each book on this list is ultimately the same, I decided to go with the cover photos route, but with more than 5! Interestingly, it took me all the way to page 94 of my TBR list (out of a total of 253 pages on Goodreads, with 20 books shown at a time) to even each the letter I, but I only had about 12 pages that contained books that started with I, and even less when you exclude books that start with The before the I-word. It’s definitely one of the harder to find letters, somehow! However, once I saw the books listed, I realized I already had multiple on my list for this year that start with I so it was a bit surprising that I had such a hard time thinking of any. In fact, I ended up deciding to just go with books that are on my TBR list for this year alone that start with I and I was surprised to see there were a ton!
