The 2014 TBR Challenge

2014TBRbutton

Last year, I only did one reading challenge and I managed to do it twice (Eclectic Reading Challenge 2013). So I’m hoping that this year I will be able to do The 2014 TBR Challenge – hosted by Roof Beam Reader –   as well as the Eclectic Reading Challenge 2014. After all, I read 61 books so 24 will hopefully be manageable.

The goal of the TBR Challenge is to read 12 books that have been on your to read pile for more than a year (plus to alternatives in case of getting stuck with on of the 12.) Easy enough as my to read pile grows every year.

Here is my list for the challenge. I’ll link reviews as I go along.Complicity –
