Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge ~ 2014

This challenge is hosted by Lori @ Escape with Dollycas into a Good Book.  The bowl must be full by December 31, 2014 — one book for each letter of the alphabet.  The challenge is to read one book with a title starting with each letter of the alphabet.  Click here for more details — and to sign up.  I'll be filling my bowl of alphabet soup on this very post (below).

Each letter counts as one spoonful of soup.  So far I've read __18__ books in 2014 that count.
