So, reading challenges scare me. There, I’ve said it. As soon as I sign up I start to feel all panicky. I kinda suck at a reading schedule. In fact, I think I’ve only ever signed up for one challenge. But this year I want to make some changes,not just here on the blog, but with my reading habits and life in general. And part of those changes involves signing up for – and finishing – reading challenges. And the fisrt one I’m signing up for is The 2012 TBR Pile Challenge.
So basically I have to pick twelve books that I’ve had for over a year and promise to read them before December 31st. And I also have two alternatives in case one or two of the twelve aren’t my cup of tea.
So here’s my list! As I read and review each one, I’ll pop back here and link to the review.
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
The Nine Lives of Travis Keating by Jill MacLean
Rattled by Lisa Harrington
Gone by Michael Grant
Nightingale’s Lament by Simon R. Green
Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
Monster by A. Lee Martinez
Away From Her by Alice Munro
The Shack by William P. Young
The Passage by Justin Cronin
Getting Rid of Matthew by Jane Fallon
Norse Code by Greg Van Eekhout
Leviathan by Scott Westerfield
Nevermore by Keith R.A. DeCandido
There you have it, folks. My books all picked out for the challenge. This will be interesting because anytime in the past I’ve set up a reading list, I’ve never followed it. Fingers crossed! 🙂
