2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge Hosted by BOOKISH

I am so excited to do this.  I always seem to have so many books on my "to be read list" and never have time to do them.  Since I have started to do review books I feel too guilty reading "my" books because I feel like I have to do the review books before I do anything else.  Now I am joining a challenge so maybe it will help me to read all the books I have been wanting to read for a while now.

I don't think I am going to put what I am going to read, because I have too many I want to read, but will just add them as I go.

I hope to be able to read  50+, but we shall see.  I want to be able to say YES for sure, but just cannot right now.  I have high hopes though!!!  So excited!

The Guidelines are : Taken from Bookish

  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2014 - Dec 31, 2014.
  2. Anyone can enter! You don't have to be a blogger, as long as you review the book you've read! (On your blog, Amazon, Random Buzzers or Goodreads/Shelfari!)
  3. Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that's been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Short stories and novellas are OK, too! Only books released in 2013 and earlier! NO  2014 ARCs and 2014 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
  4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.
  5. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2013 TBRPILE Reading Challenge. (If you don't have a blog, post about it on Facebook or Tweet!)
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2014, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
  8. On the 20th of each month we will post a wrap-up post, here, on BOOKISH. Every wrap-up will have it's unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this monthFor each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It's open to INTERNATIONALS. The giveaway will be open until the next wrap up post goes up! (i.e. the entire month)
  9. If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice - we will be checking ;) 
  10. December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you'll link up in December will be entered into a GRAND PRIZE giveaway
  11. You don't have to follow Bookish Blog to join the challenge, but you do have to follow us to be entered in giveaways!
Easy peasy!  It's going to be fun!  Thanks Bookish!  I am excited to be part of this.


  1. Oh goodness, I haven't even thought about my TBR pile for next year. I already know I have quite a few ARCs that I need to read but other than that I have no clue! I guess it is that time of year to start thinking about it. ;)

    Good luck with yours!!

    1. It's a little overwhelming to think about now, when I have so much going on, but hopefully with the new year, things will calm down....hehehehe!

  2. What kind of trouble did I get you into??? ;) It's a little addicting, blogging and getting review books, isn't it? I'll be doing this challenge or another challenge too. I might actually do this and the other one. We'll see. :) Good luck!

    1. You just introduced me to a whole new world! I need to learn how to manage it myself ;). This just give me an "excuse" to read more book that are not on my "review" list ;)!
