TBR Reading Challenges Book List


Some of the books I plan to read for my TBR Challenges:

TBR-reading-challgenge-2014The first TBR reading challenge is hosted by Wendy at The Misadventures of Super Librarian.

Monthly Review Dates And Theme Suggestions–with names of books added I hope to read

January 15 – We Love Short Shorts! (Short stories, Novellas, category romance)–Six-Gun Snow White by Catherynne M. Valente
February 19 – Series Catch-Up (pick a book from a series you’re behind on)–Ashes of Honor by Seanan McGuire
March 19 – New-To-You Author (an author you’ve never read before)–Cold Magic by Kate Elliott
April 16 – Contemporary romance–Letters to Nowhere by Julie Cross

I haven’t chosen books yet for the rest of the year and these may change, too, but at least for now these are the ones I’m hoping to read for these themes. I missed the January post and haven’t read the book yet, but hope to read it by the end of January. These are only suggested themes so I may decide to read a different book which doesn’t follow that month’s theme.


The second TBR reading challenge I’m participating in is hosted at the Bookish blog. I hope to read 21-30 books from my TBR pile. This is the “First Kiss” level!
