Hello, TBR Pile Challengers!
Welcome to the 5th checkpoint for our annual TBR Pile Challenge! I hope you are all making good progress and enjoying yourselves (and your reading selections! We have 100 reviews/check-in posts linked up already, with 7 months to go, and I think that’s beyond awesome! Way to go, you all!
I’m pleased to report that, in this 5th month of the challenge, I have read 6 of my 12 books! That puts me right on pace, with summer freedom (ha!) coming up. I hope to get a little bit ahead during the summer months, so this actually puts me in a good place. If I can finish one more this month, then I’ll be at 7 of 14, which is my *actual* half-way goal, since I plan to complete my alternates.
As you can see, I haven’t made any reviewing progress since last month. I’m currently reading Book 7 from my challenge list, which is Mary Kinzie’s A Poet’s Guide to Poetry. This one is a chunkster and we’re meant to take our time with it, so it’s going to take a while to finish. I have some poetry collections on my list, still, and a couple regular-length novels, so I’m going to try to read those simultaneously this summer in order to continue making progress on my challenge list rather than stalling on one long book.
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!
