Books and Waffles Alphabetical: X

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Books I Hope Santa Brings. I don’t have a long enough list for this year so instead I’m going to do another Alphabetical post for this week.


  • 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

So X is extremely difficult to find stuff for, but I managed to fudge on a couple of these to have one for each category.


Emily X.R. Pan: This is the only author I have read that has a notable X in her name, so I’m counting her on this list. Her novel, The Astonishing Color of After, made me feel a lot of things and think a lot of things.


X-Men Fairy Tales by C.B. Cebulski: According to Goodreads, I have read two books that begin with the letter X. One is a not-so-great dystopian that was published during the dystopian fallout of The Hunger Games popularity. The other is this comic collection that reimagines X-Men stories through folktales and myths from around the world. I wasn’t familiar with all of the myths they used, but I thought it was interesting.


Charles Xavier, from X-Men comics by Marvel: Okay, but who doesn’t like Professor X? He’s one cool dude and he’s super powerful and wise. Plus, you can’t beat Sir Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy playing him in the films!

Do you know of any other authors, books, or characters that have X in their names or titles?

  1. I’ve written and scheduled my “X” post, and you’re right: it was hard. I have Ibram X. Kendi on my list for the author, and The Poet X as a favorite book. (I had to fudge the rules a bit, so I didn’t always start with X in my post.)

    But yes: the X-Men feature heavily in my post as well.
