CLICK ON THE BANNER TO JOIN THIS CHALLENGE
I have so so many books on my TBR and TBL, 622 as of today, that I really need to do this challenge, though 12 books seem too low for me.
Here are the 12 titles I plan on reading. They need to have been published before 2013:
- The Light Between Oceans
- My Antonia
- Murder in Montmartre, by Cara Black
- Labyrinth, by Kate Mosse
- Vendredi ou les limbes du pacifique, by Michel Tournier
- Gaspard, Melchior & Balthazar, by Michel Tournier
- La vie mode d’emploi, by Georges Pérec
- Eventide, by Kent Haruf
- The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, by Rachel Joyce
- The Queen’s Lover
- The Crown, by Nancy Bilyeau
- The Bridge on the Drina
- The Shadow of the Wind = DNFed!
= only 4/12!
I loved the Shadow of the Wind, one of your alternates. Cara Black’s series are also good!.
I have meaning to read the Shadow of the wind series for a while. I discovered Cara Black this year with her latest mystery, so glad to go back to her. will you be doing this challenge?
I’m doing a TBR challenge as well, and my goal is also 12. I figured that a book a month is realistic and reasonable, and that if I’m doing really well, I can always raise my goal later on.
that makes sense, looking forward to seeing your list
Me too, me too! But, while you are realistic and mature about it, I plan to read all of the books that are on my bookshelves or Kindle before I attempt any new ones (other than those I am officially reviewing). Bit nervous if that will work…
well, considering that I read about 100-110 books a year, and that there are currently over 600 books on my Goodreads TBR, and that it’s not unusual I add 20 more every month, at least…. I’m not too good at maths, but you can see there’s no way I can ever say I have read all the books in mty TBR, lol.
looking forward to see your list for this challenge
I have to read The Light Between Oceans too. I have heard wonderful things about it. Best of luck in this challenge!
thanks, to you too! where is your list?
My list is at http://caitieflum.wordpress.com/2013/12/18/the-2014-tbr-pile-challenge
thanks! just left a comment there
I read Harold Fry last year, it is a lovely lovely book. Good luck with the challenge.
yes, looking forward to it. I tried to find your own list for this challenge, but the link on your page goes directly to Adam’s page, and I could not find your own post
I just discovered Kent Haruf in 2013 but he’s one of my favorite authors. His books are gorgeous.
yes, I enjoyed very much Plainsong and want now to read more. thanks for dropping by, I like your revie2ws and am now following you thru bloglovin. intrigued by The Hundred-Foot Journey
622 is not so bad, maaaan 🙂 2 and 9 are also on my TBR list, just not priority yet. Good luck with the challenge!
good luck to you too
