Books and Waffles Alphabetical: V

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Books for My Younger Self. I feel like I’ve done a post similar to this recently, so I’m doing another Alphabetical post this week. I’m almost done, so I don’t know what I’ll do when this is finally finished!


  • Credit Alex for the idea, and link back
  • Post at your own pace, do as many or as few letters as you want
  • Post your favourite authors, books and characters (ABCs) for a particular letter of the alphabet

I thought V would be a hard one because my initial brainstorming came up with few options for authors and books and almost no characters. But after a little searching (and mentally rolling my eyes for forgetting), I managed to find a couple for each!


Victor Hugo: I’ve only read one book by this man, but it was a big one. I love Les Misérables so much so of course Victor Hugo is a favorite. I just wish he wrote a few hundred less words to tell his stories.

Victoria Schwab: I’ve enjoyed pretty much everything I’ve read by her, even if they aren’t necessary the best books ever. But that’s okay.


The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle: Okay, but who doesn’t love this book?

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis: This is my favorite of the Narnia books because I love the sense of adventure and the magic. Plus, Reepicheep and Eustace!


Victor Von Doom from The Fantastic Four comics by Marvel: Yeah, Victor’s a villain (or maybe anti-hero at times), but he’s a fascinating villain. Why bother making another Fantastic Four film? Just give me a Doom movie!

Violet Baudelaire from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket: Violet is one of those characters that helped me feel comfortable in who I was growing up. She didn’t mind that she wasn’t girly or that she preferred inventing things to playing with dolls. She also didn’t judge other girls for being different than her and liking other things than her. She also did whatever she could to save her family, time and time again. She’s brave and courageous.

Which authors, books, and characters that begin with the letter V do you love?

  1. Victor Hugo- love both Les Misérables and Hunchback of Notre Dame. It actually was the musical of Les Mis that made me want to read the book.

    V.E Schwab- well, in August, I read the entire Shades of Magic trilogy and loved it

    • Yes! I watched the musical (movie version, then later a local production) first and felt ambitious enough to read the book. I haven’t read Hunchback yet, but maybe someday!

      I’m glad you enjoyed Shades of Magic! 🙂

      • Turns out our journeys with Les Mis is kinda of similar. In my case, I had to give the film a 2nd chance- after that, the rest is history. My first three times were November 2013- I was an usher at Charlotte’s Community College and saw it with my family.

        Well- crazily enough, I read the unabridged book the same summer I saw the musical in London- that would be summer of 2015
