February Checkpoint #TBR2019RBR

Hello, TBR Pile Challengers! 

Welcome to our second checkpoint for this year’s TBR Pile Challenge! It looks like some of you are off to a rip-roaring start! Way to go! As for me? Well, I am almost exactly where I was in January. So, I suddenly find myself falling behind, after having been on track! But what else is new? 

Progress: 2 of 12 Completed / 1 of 12 Reviewed

So far, I’ve read 2 of my 12 required books. I do plan to start Book 3 very soon, but more importantly, I need to get some reviews written and posted! Last month, I mentioned that I’ve actually never read a book by Dean Koontz. Now I can say that I have. And it was… interesting? 

I plan (really, I do!) to read all 14 of the books on my list this year, the main 12 plus my 2 alternates, so getting a jump-start on this list before spring semester began was important. I think I’ll read something non-fiction, next, since I’ve read two novels already. Perhaps Light the Dark, to help re-ignite my writing as well.

How are you doing?


Below, you’re going to find the infamous Mr. Linky widget. If you read and review any challenge books this month, please link-up on the widget below. This Mr. Linky will be re-posted every month so that we can compile a large list of all that we’re reading and reviewing together this year. Each review that is linked-up on this widget throughout the year may also earn you entries into future related giveaways, so don’t forget to keep this updated!


Congratulations to Bev of My Reader’s Block, who is the winner of our very first mini-challenge! Bev will receive a book of her choice from The Book Depository ($15 USD or less).


P.S. Congratulations to Jean of Howling Frog Books, who is the overall “winner” of the 2018 TBR Pile Challenge! Jean will receive a $50 Amazon gift card OR $50 of books from The Book Depository. Thanks to all who participated!

  1. Thanks so much, Adam!

    So far I’ve read two (still need to post the review for the second one–Final Curtain). Not as much progress as I’d like.

  2. I’ve read & reviewed two so I’m feeling like that’s OK. And Mark @ maphead was praising Special Topics in Calamity Physics so maybe that will have to be next!

  3. I just linked up my second review for the challenge, and I’m partway through a third book. But I’ve been partway through it for a couple of weeks, so I may need to admit defeat on that one.

  4. Congratulations to the mini-challenge winners! I’ve read 2 books from my list, and just posted my first review. Working on the second review!

  5. I’ve managed somehow or other to read three of the twelve. I’ve written reviews for two of the three, Frankenstein and A Small Town in Germany by John Le Carre. Loved both of those. The third, O is for Outcast, still needs to be written. I had a lot of time to read in January, so that’s the only reason I’ve read three.

  6. I’ve just finished another and linked up the review! I just flew through Caroline: Little House, Revisited by Sarah Miller, which was a retelling of part of the Little House story told from the view of Ma Ingalls. It was better even than I had hoped! I really loved it!


  7. Oops – I commented already, but it seems to not have sent it through.
    I actually picked my most ambitious read to start the year off with, and am progressing through it nicely. So, although I haven’t finished any of my books yet, I’m quite pleased with how it is going. There are a few I should be able to whip through, and it will all even out around the summer!
