Hello, TBR Pile Challengers!
Welcome to our third checkpoint for this year’s TBR Pile Challenge! We already have EIGHTY reviews/checkpoints linked up on our Mr. Linky, which is ten more than last year at this time! 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 more progress since last month, which is that I actually managed to read and write down thoughts for two more challenge books!
Somehow, I’m almost back on the pace I was at last year, which was probably my best year for this challenge since its inception. I know that I’m going to have plenty of time to read and review later this year, but I’d like to keep steady pace just the same. At this point, I’ve read three novels set in Asia (historical fantasy, historical realism, and magical realism/Buddhist) plus one poetry collection from an Iranian-American poet. I can’t say I planned to start this year with exclusively non-Western reading, but that’s definitely how it has gone so far, and they’ve all been great reads! (Three of four are also written by women. Again, unintentional, but interesting to note!) I have reviews for the two reads I’m missing for this challenge drafted and will post once I’ve gone through and edited them. I hope to get completely caught up on all three in the next couple weeks. In addition, I just started my fourth book from this challenge, Hermann Hesse’s Steppenwolf (1927).
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!
i’m doing well i think, 6 of 12 done, i will try to keep going even if this month was harder for me

Half-way! That’s amazing!
I finished my third book, The Maidens, on March 12th (review linked up). I’m currently reading my fourth (a short one and I’m halfway through), The Green Man by Kingsley Amis. I figure if I can keep this pace up, I may even get to my alternates. Yay!
