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? I’m basically right on track, having completed two of my reads & reviews while being about halfway through list selection number three (A People’s History of the United States).
So far, I’ve read and reviewed 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! I’ve got a couple of recent reads, like Lydia Millet’s A Children’s Bible and Rainbow Rowell’s Anyway the Wind Blows, sitting here on my desk staring at me with judgmental furor. (To be fair, I don’t review every book I read, anymore, so I may or may not even do these.) To be honest, I’ve pivoted to only reading books that I can rave about, as time is short and I don’t particularly believe in posting negative reviews (I just post the stars to Goodreads.)
I still plan to read all 14 of the books on my list this year, the main 12 plus my 2 alternates, so I’m glad to be at least “on track” with one a month. Summer usually leaves me extra time, so I can catch up on alternates then. That said, I have quite a few very long books on my list this year, one of which I’ve been working on for a few weeks already, so maybe I shouldn’t get too cocky.
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 Michelle of True Book Addict, who is the winner of our very first mini-challenge! Michelle will receive a book of her choice from The Book Depository ($15 USD or less).
We will have another mini-challenge in April but keep reading and posting your reviews. Remember that every completed review for your challenge list’s books that is linked up in our widget counts as an entry into the final prize at the end of the year!
