2014 TBR Pile Reading 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:

  1. The Light Between Oceans
  2. My Antonia
  3. Murder in Montmartre, by Cara Black
  4. Labyrinth, by Kate Mosse
  5. Vendredi ou les limbes du pacifique, by Michel Tournier
  6. Gaspard, Melchior & Balthazar, by Michel Tournier
  7. La vie mode d’emploi, by Georges Pérec
  8. Eventide, by Kent Haruf
  9. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, by Rachel Joyce
  10. The Queen’s Lover
  11. The Crown, by Nancy Bilyeau
  12. The Bridge on the Drina


  1. Stoner
  2. The Shadow of the Wind = DNFed!

= only 4/12!

  1. 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.


  2. 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
