A-Z of Books - A Meme

For this meme, you list a favorite book that starts with each letter of the alphabet. If you don’t have a book for a letter (such as Z or X) than you can substitute a favorite book that simply has that letter in the title (e.g. The Lost City of Z or Hot Six by Janet Evanovich). However, you can only do this a maximum of 3 times. (Z, X, and Q. But not Z, X, Q, and V.) Books can be of any genre from fiction to non-fiction to poetry to textbooks.

This is a difficult task to fulfill, because obviously some letters, like S and T, have many books that might be favorites, whereas others, like Q and X are unlikely to present you with difficulties making a choice. I have chosen Fiction:

A: Alphabet of Thorn - Patricia McKillip
B:  Bitten - Kelley Armstrong
C:  Catching Fire  - Suzanne Collins
D: Dune - Frank Herbert
E: Empress of Mijak - Karen Miller
F: (The) Forest of Hands and Teeth - Carrie Ryan
G: (A) Guide to Old English - Bruce Mitchell (It was my text book when I learnt Anglo Saxon and still a favourite)
H: Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
I: (An) Ice Cold Grave - Charlaine Harris
J: (The) Jungle - Upton Sinclair
K: Merlin's Keep - Madeline Brent (I could have settled for a different K book, but I had to fight out which got to be the M book. This was easier!)
L: Lord of the Rings - JRR Tolkien
M: Magician - Raymond E Fiest
N: Night Shift - Lilith Saintcrow
O: Obsidian Butterfly - Laurell K Hamilton
P: Persuasion - Jane Austen
Q: Quest - Shannah Jay
R: Red Phoenix - Kylie Chan
S: Some Place To Be Flying - Charles de Lint
T: The Painted Man - Peter V Brett
U: Unleash the Night - Sherrilyn Kenyon
V: (The) Vampire Lestat - Anne Rice
W: (The) Wood Wife - Terri Windling
X: Xone of Contention - Piers Anthony
Y: Yarrow - Charles de Lint
Z: Z for Zachariah - Robert C. O'Brien

What are yours?

Oh I want to steal this one! But where did you get it? I'm guessing it's not an original of yours because of the American spelling of favourite.

While I'm here - have you ever considered using something like Intense Debate for people to leave comments on your blog? I just ask because blogger's commenting system is complete and utter crap and you get people avoiding leaving comments because of it. Just a thought.
