Alphabet Book Challenge

Alphabet Book Challenge - 26 Books

A book for each letter, a book that has a main character or key supporting character (not some random minor character mentioned twice!) whose name starts with that letter. It doesn't have to be the title of the book, just the name. Ex: Alice (in Wonderland), Bella (Twilight), Cathy (Wuthering Heights), Dracula (Dracula) Estella (Great Expectations), etc.
Only one letter per book, any book, any length - short stories, books of the Bible, etc. they all count for this one.

A: Anne Elliot - “Persuasion” by Jane Austen
B: Blanca Trueba - “The House of the Spirits” by Isabel Allende
C: Christabel LaMotte - “Possession” by A.S. Byatt
D: Dorothea Brooks - “Middlemarch” by George Eliot
