A To Z Challenge 2023 - Theme Reveal #AtoZChallenge

The A to Z blogging challenge seems ancient to me now. I religiously (we seriously need a better word for agnostics like me) participated in this challenge from 2014 to 2019, six consecutive years, 26 posts in the month of April. Honestly, I did enjoy doing them. I picked great themes and was usually prepared beforehand. 2020 to 2022 barely saw any writing from me and A to Z was the last thing on my mind. Since I've been wanting to write more this year, I've decided to participate in the A to Z Blogging challenge for 2023.

This time too, I'm prepare to an extent and I'm ready to set sail with this challenge. Motivating me along the way, would be my favorite bookstagrammer and book buddy Shalini. We've decided to do this together and even have the same theme. Check out her theme reveal post here. As much as we love books and can discuss them endlessly, our tastes are quite diverse and different. Which is exactly why this challenge would be super fun. We take on the same prompts every day. Same prompts, different points of view. How amazing would that be?

The theme we have chosen for this year is 'Quirky Bookish Words'. If you follow Shalini or me on Bookstagram you will recognize this theme from the #DecBookLove theme of 2022. While we are using the same theme, we have changed a few words to make it more appealing. 

Follow our journey all through April as we will be talking about books, authors, genres and everything else in between.


  1. Sounds really cool, Soumya! So glad you're participating this year. I so curious to see you and Shalini working on the same theme together but in different ways!! I've jumped in at the last minute and although it does feel daunting, I'm going to dive right into it. Good luck to you, Soumya and to all of us. Can't wait to see where this takes us.

  2. This sounds interesting. I have followed your blog. I often blog about books, but not for the A to Z Challenge.

  3. I am super duper excited and am thanking the sanity to do this jointly. I think I have got so used to doing bookish challenges with you that I just had to do this with you too. Thank you so much for agreeing to the madness.

  4. Oh i like the sound of this. You had me at bookish but loving the quirky feel too

  5. Sounds great! I will be writing AtoZ too.. no idea about what! My head is in a weird space and I just need this to get out of it.

  6. Oh wow! Wish you all the best for the challenge. You have an intriguing theme!
    The years you mentioned were the years when I had jumped in this challenge too! So tempted I was this year to do it but then finally decided against it.

  7. Sounds exciting, Soumya. I am looking forward to reading your posts during AtoZ. All the best to you!
