2018 TBR Pile Challenge on Reading List

Time for some tough love...

Towards my bookshelves...

You see, four years ago, my family moved into our current house. And when I was packing up all my books I made the hard decision of giving away more than half of them!  I know... it was a heartbreaking process. But they all went to great homes... I'm sure...

And since then, I have worked hard to keep my book buying craziness to a limit... I go to the library often.  I request the library purchase books I'm unsure of, so I can borrow them and decide if I want to buy them... Did you know you could do?  Request new books, or even not new books, be added to your library shelves??? YOU CAN!!!!

Anyway, I thought I was doing a good job... but then...

2018 TBR Pile Challenge on Reading List

Yep, there are quite a few books on here I haven't read...

So when I stumbled across Roof Beam Reader's TBR Pile Challenge, I knew I had to join in!

The Goal: To finally read 12 books from your “to be read” pile (within 12 months).

But there are some details to it... the books need to have been on my TBR for at least a year... which means any book published in 2017 is not going to be part of this challenge... but that's alright... 

And following the guidelines from the challenge, this means I will add in at least one review a month of a poor forgotten book on my TBR... so stay tuned...
