Last Letter, First Letter Reading Challenge 2014

So I kinda lost out on doing this, for 2014, but I' going to reinstate it, hopefully!

What it is:
You pick a book, read it. Then you look at the last letter of the title, for example, "The Adventures of Tom Saywer." Then you take that last letter, and search you TBR piles for a book starting with the last letter, so coninuting the example, someone could read "Rotters" next, and then a title that starts with "s."

1. Have fun!
2. Read!
3. The last letter of the book you read must be the first letter of the next book you read.
4. Words like "the," "a," "and," and those such don't count as the first letter.

Some other details:
I'm thinking of making it a weekly meme, on Fridays, or something, with a linky or something if I get interest. Here's to hoping I do!

Sounds like fun? Hopefully!  This way, well, there's always going to be a last letter of a title, even if you have to spell out a number. And our TBR piles should hopefully go down a bit!

And if anyone would like to participate (hopefully you do!) leave a link or something? And a plea is going out: if people like this reading challenge (and I hope I'm not copying someone else's meme) would they please create a banner/picture thing for it since I'm helpless at that sort of thing? Thanks!

For me, I think I'll start with Legend by Marie Lu. So for my book 2, I think I'll either read Dark Passage by M J Putney, or Dark Parties by Sara Grant. Yep. Happy reading!
