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.
- Emmaline Pankhurst – Paula Bartley (2002)
