The goal: read books from your existing TBR pile or TBR list.
This challenge, hosted by Lark at The Bookwyrm's Hoard, is always a fun one because it pushes me to read the books I already own--all those books that have been gathering dust on my bookshelves for years now. I didn't have a set goal when I started this challenge last January, although I was kind of hoping to read at least one TBR a month. Did I reach my goal? Not quite. But I did manage to read ten books off my own TBR shelf this year...and I'm good with that.
They were all decent reads, but my two favorites were definitely When the Power is Gone and The Crawling Darkness. But then you know how much I like EMP survival and haunted house books.
Good for you. Now this is a challenge I should participate in. Heaven knows I have enough books waiting!ReplyDelete
:D I think we all do!Delete
I think you've done well, Lark! This is definitely a good challenge which will motivate us to read the books we own. I can't even imagine how many books I've yet to read from my pile. ;pReplyDelete
When you count them all up, it can be a very surprising number...and humbling number. ;DDelete
I like this particular challenge and wish I'd seen it last January because I need some kind of motivation to help me remember to read all the books languishing on my shelves unread. I did manage to get through ten of them this year, but I will never catch up at that pace. I need to make this a personal challenge next year for sure.ReplyDelete
I know what you mean. I don't know why it's so hard to prioritize reading the books I own, but somehow library books always take precedence. That's why I do like this particular reading challenge! :)Delete
Congratulations, Lark! A challenge to be proud of :)ReplyDelete
At least I didn't fall farther behind on my TBR mound. ;DDelete
That's awesome, Lark! I have so many books that I own that I need to read, so this is a challenge I really want to participate in next year. :)ReplyDelete
It's a good one! :)Delete
I really should've done this challenge! I have so many books that I already own that have languished on my bookshelf. Maybe I'll sign up next year. EMP (love a good end-of-the-world scenario) and haunted houses are favs of mine, too! :)ReplyDelete
I should probably do this challenge every year just to make myself read some of my own books. I don't know why that's so hard. ;DDelete
Ooh Island in the Mist looks good- dinosaurs ha!!!ReplyDelete
Gotta love a book with dinosaurs! :)Delete
I so loved When The Power Is Gone and Cavern of the Damned was a decent read too! Still to read Locker Nine and Island In The Mist.ReplyDelete
I have the second book that follows Locker Nine, but I haven't read it yet. I need to read the rest of Glaspy's series, too. :DDelete
I think you did great with this challenge, Lark. I really need to get to some of my back list books.ReplyDelete
I might not do this challenge next year, but I do really want to make sure I'm reading books from off my own shelves...even if it's only one a month. :)Delete
