2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Earlier today, I was taking a look at Vicky's blog at Books, Biscuits & Tea, and I discovered this 2012 challenge that she is hosting along with 9 other book blogs. I have been looking recently at my ever-increasing TBR (to be read, for those that don't know) pile and wondering when I will ever get through it all. Although I know I do want to read all of them, and I do look forward to a lot of them, there are always new books coming out that I also want to read. It has become increasingly difficult to get them read though because of University reading and work I have to do, and now I'm blogging more and more often, I have also have a huge pile of review copies to read.
So by setting myself this challenge, I'm hoping to get through some of the books that I decide to add to the list.

There are different levels to this challenge so that each blogger taking part can suit it to their reading schedules. These levels are:

1-10 - A Firm Handshake
11-20 - A Friendly Hug
21-30 - A Sweet Kiss
31-40 - Love At First Sight
41-50 - Married With Children

I have decided to go with A Friendly Hug for my level because of my University reading and review copies, so I think this will be more manageable, but if I manage to move up into A Sweet Kiss - even better ;) !

Some of the books I'm thinking of reading for this challenge are below. Please click the images to view the goodreads page if you're interested!

These are only a few of the books that I am planning to read for the 2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge next year, although the list is subject to change. At the beginning of the year, I will publish a new page dedicated to the challenge with the full list of those I plan to read, and I shall then update it with links to the reviews as I go along.
If you're a book blogger and you're interested in signing yourself up for the challenge too, click on the image at the top of this post and it will take you along to Vicky's first host post!

Happy Reading!

Aha I see you've signed up too :D We do need to get these TBR piles down lol. The only trouble is I will probably add more and more books to mine. Time to pack me off to Bookaholics anonymous :P - are you coming too........


Vicky said...

Yay, I'm glad you signed up hun! :) Great books by the way - I can't wait to read your review for The Peach Keeper.

I know it's hard to get your TBR down when uni homework and review copies always come first, I'm in the same boat so I'm definitely looking forward to this, haha!

Jen, I will definitely have to come with you to Bookaholics Anonymous! And just as I say this, I've just had 4 review copies from Harper Collins on Netgalley :P Hahahaha! This is not going to work ;)

Vicky, it's a really good idea! I think The Peach Keeper will be one of the first I'll be reading :D xxx
