Our other challenges for 2023 are:

Proving a popular challenge in the latter half of 2022, we are back with a much larger, year-long version, of Treasure Hunt!

This year we have FOUR hunts for you to do, and you may participate in all, one, or however many you wish!

Our words have been selected by the mods — the title of our favourite books we read this year!

For those of you unfamiliar with how this works, to put it simply, you need to find a book title that matches each letter of our selected words!


  1. You may join and sign up to however many of these you wish. By no means are you expected to do all of them. If one is your jam, that’s perfectly okay!
  2. Books **may not** be repeated within each title, however, you can repeat books across titles. Eg. You may use the same book for an E in Empress and an E in The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, but you **cannot** use the same book for the two Es in Empress. 
  3. Words such as The, A, An, etc are excluded from the titles. This means you can skip these words. For example, The Song of Achilles would go under an S rather than a T. 
  4. You **do not** have to read any of the books chosen as our prompts. These were simply the favourite reads of the mods in 2022 (but you of course can if you want!)
