2014 TBR Challenge

I've been so out of it I missed this! I loved the challenge in 2013 (I didn't do much by way of reporting things, but I did update my post a few times). It was a good way to catch up on those books that I've been "meaning to get to." lol

What, exactly, is this, you ask? From the creator herself:

Welcome to 2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge!

We all have those books. We buy them, win them, they're gifted to us.. Then we put them up on a bookshelf and there they stay, collecting dust, waiting for the time when we'll finally decide to pick them up..
Join us on a quest to dust off your TBR Pile and read all the books you've been telling yourself you'll read next time you'll get a chance.. This is your chance! And we've got PRIZES!!! :D

If you want more information, visit Evie's Site and see what the guidelines are, etc.

Okay, so there's levels to choose from based on how many books you plan to read:
  • 1-10 - A Firm Handshake
  • 11-20 - A Friendly Hug
  • 21-30 - First Kiss
  • 31-40 - Sweet Summer Fling
  • 41-50Could this be love?
  • 50+Married With Children
I think I'm going to go with a Sweet Summer Fling for this challenge. If I exceed it, great! Last year I exceeded early, so we'll see. :)

So, this year's book list... let's see... *puts thinking cap on*... Some of these are going to be repeats from last year's list that I never got to. *hangs head in shame* I imagine there will be others I read not from this list, but I'll add those when I do. :)

Update 8/1: So where I stand is HORRIBLE on the list I made. I have read, just apparently not the ones I said I wanted to when I posted this. lol  I am currently reading Shiver, but still. Here's what I have read outside of this list (since making it on 3/5):

  1. Landline by Rainbow Rowell (Doesn't count as it's a 2014 release)
  2. The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle
  3. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart (Doesn't count as it's a 2014 release)
  4. Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor (Doesn't count as it's a 2014 release)

  8. The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson (Doesn't count as it's a 2014 release)
  9. Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Um... that's only 10 books since March 5, and not all of them even count toward this challenge! Seriously, what is WRONG WITH ME?!?!  *sigh*

Hope you'll join us for the fun.
