I’m very excited that Roof Beam Reader is hosting the TBR Pile Reading Challenge again – for the 5th year! I’ve started the last two years, but failed both, so I’m hoping to do better this year!
The challenge is, as it suggests to read books from your TBR Pile. I can’t even count how many are on my list, and book shelf. We’re thinking about moving in a couple of months, so last weekend, I took a box – big box – of books to our storage unit to get them out the flat. And I’ve still got 4 shelves fully – with two rows per shelf. So there’s loads.
This year though, I decided to take books, partly off my shelf, but mainly from the list I’ve written over the last few years. Every time I see a book I want to read, in a magazine, shop, on TV, a friend recommends, or wherever, I write it on this list. It’s quite long.
I have to choose 12, and 2 spares (just in case) now, then as I read them, review them, link on here, and on Roof Beem Reader’s TBR Pile Challenge. Here’s my 2014 list:
1 – The Fault In Our Stars by John Green (2012)
2 – Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (2011) (21/2/14)
3 – The Woman Who Went To Bed For A Year by Sue Townsend (2012)
4 – Lets Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson (2012)
5 – Breakfast at Darcy’s Ali McNamara (2011)
6 – How We Met by Katy Regan (2012)
7 – The Man Who Forgot His Wife John O’Farrell (2012)
8 – Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coeho (1998)
9 – China Lake by Meg Gardiner (2002)
10 – The Time of My Life by Cecelia Ahern (2011)
11 – Before I Met You by Lisa Jewell (2012)
12 – The Greatest love Story of All Time by Lucy Robinson (2012)
And the extras, in case I can’t get through one or two.
13 – Something Missing by Matthew Dicks (2009)
14 – The Other Family by Joanna Trollope (2010)
As I said, I didn’t complete 2012 and 2013, so as the saying goes, I want to make the third time lucky! See Roof Beam Reader’s sign up for the challenge here.
