I didn’t do this last year, and feel like it would be a good one to try again this year. As before it is sponsored by Bookish. I got a lot of ARCs at BEA that I really wanted to read, but got messed up in my plan when September and my Sequel Challenge came around. So those are kind of top on my list. As well as some books that I had been given or won in giveaways. So, I’ll set my goal to the same number I’ve done in the past, I plan to read 11-20 books from my TBR pile between January 1st, 2015 and December 31st, 2015. All the books have to have been published in 2014 or before. Any new books don’t count as cleaning out your TBR pile. I think the fact that they will be doing link ups on the 25th of every other month is going to be helpful for me to doing that. With the challenge I participated in this past year, I was able to do updates every two months, until October that is, then I got behind. I hate to pick exactly what I’ll read, as I tend to go with what the mood fits at the time, but here are some that I’m hoping I will pick up for this challenge:
- Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
- Endgame: The Calling by James Frey and Nils Johnston-Shelton
- Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle
- The Walled City by Ryan Graudin
- Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater
- Fallen by Lauren Kate
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer
- Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
- Arianna’s Destiny by Michelle Sodaro
- Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
The top 5 are ones that I got at BEA, so really hope to get them read. Others are ones that I really need to read. If you are interested in participating, click on the link on Bookish above to go get signed up.
Excellent challenge Lisa, and I think 10 books is very fair!
I'm just surprised you haven't read Cinder!
I know, I know, I had it on my shelf awhile ago and just never got around to it. But I will in January, no matter what! 🙂
