March Checkpoint! #TBR2019RBR

Hello, TBR Pile Challengers! 

Welcome to our third checkpoint for this year’s TBR Pile Challenge! We already have more than 110 reviews/checkpoints linked up on our Mr. Linky, which is insane! Well done to all of you! I hope you continue to read and share and discuss all your favorites (or least favorites) from this challenge.

As for me, I’ve made the tiniest bit of progress since last month, which is that I actually managed to write my thoughts for Book #2, and those thoughts go live on March 17th. I’ve read another 5 books (and written reviews for most of them, too!) but, unfortunately, none of the selections were on my TBR Challenge list. Whoops. 

Progress: 2 of 12 Completed / 2 of 12 Reviewed

So far, I’ve read 2 of my 12 required books. I do plan to start Book 3 very soon, and 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. Then again, I’ve really been eyeing Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet the last few days, and I also have found myself in a bit of a reading rut, comparatively speaking, so I’m thinking Vonnegut might be a good choice (he’s always a knockout for me.) What to do!?

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!

MINI-CHALLENGE #2 is coming next month!

  1. I’ve finished my THIRD title, though the post isn’t scheduled until Wednesday. Still working on one of the big ones, though I started it in January! It’s a tough read and my time is sooo limited right now.

      • The one that’s taking a while is Black Earth, by Timothy Snyder, a heavy-duty history of the Holocaust. There’s a lot of run-up, especially about Poland. I’m not quite a third in.

  2. Still on the first one! Reading two 1000 page books at the same time, but I finished one this morning so I should be able to get through the rest of the other one for my TBR Challenge in not too long. I always find the beginning of the year is slow for reading for me, but April/May will significantly speed up. Working full-time, taking classes, and blogging is a lot right now!

    • I hear ya! I always have to play catch up during the summer.


  3. I’ve finished and reviewed two this month, which puts me at a total of five (plus one fail, so I’ll definitely be reading at least one of my alternates.)

  4. I’ve finished three and posted two reviews, with the third scheduled for the weekend. I’ve realized that a lot of my books are covering similar territory, so I’m trying to spread them out somewhat.

  5. Just finished my third and got the review up today. So–staying pretty much on track. Hope to have another one done by the beginning of April (after I finish Michelle Obama’s book, which I just started).

    • I just started my 3rd! Not sure if I’ll finish before March is through, but it’s Vonnegut, so probably.
