2014 TBR Pile Challenge

Hosted by Adam at Roof Beam Reader.

The goal: to finally read 12 books from your “to be read” pile (within 12 months). Your list must be completed by December 31, 2014.

Each of these books must have been on your shelf or TBR list for at least one full year. Books cannot have a publication date of January 1, 2013 or later. Two (2) alternates are allowed, in case 1–2 end up as “can’t finish” books. Books can be read in any order. Challenge crossovers are acceptable, as long as you haven’t read it before and it was published pre-2013.

As I finish books off this list, I will mark it as completed and link the title to the review post on my blog.
