Reading Challenge – The 2019 TBR Pile Challenge

Okay so I know I said that I might not do a challenge this year but I really like the TBR Pile Challenge and I haven’t done it for a couple of years. It is hosted by Roof Beam Reader and it challenges you to read 12 books that have been on your TBR pile for more than a year. So it is a good excuse to dig out some of those books you’ve been meaning to read for a while and make yourself read them. No categories to keep to  – just 12 books that are desperate to be read.

So here is my list. I really hope I can get through them all.

  1. Emmaline Pankhurst – Paula Bartley (2002)
  2. The Martian Chronicles – Ray Bradbury (1950)
  3. The Plague – Albert Camus (1947)
  4. The Unusual Life of Tristan Smith – Peter Carey (1994)
  5. A Room with a View – E. M. Forster (1908)
  6. The Virgin’s Lover – Philippa Gregory (2004)
  7. You Really Got Me: The Story of the Kinks – Nick Hasted (2010)
  8. The Beetle – Richard Marsh (1897) 
  9. The Tiger’s Wife – Tea Obreht (2011) – Currently reading
  10. Thank  You For The Days – Mark Radcliffe (2009)
  11. Powder – Kevin Sampson (1999)
  12. Decline and Fall – Evelyn Waugh (1928) 

Extras:

  1. The Shipping News – Annie Proulx (1993)
