Take Control of Your TBR Pile

Have I ever mentioned that I’m a bookaholic? I haven’t *heavy sarcasm* well let me just tell you all about it! Y’all I love books in any way, shape or form I can get them. This has become a massive problem as my TBR pile is now WAY more than I could ever handle. AND #COYER ends next week!!!! I haven’t made a single dent in this massive TBR pile of mine. Right now, I have 293 ebooks sitting on my Kindle (mostly one-click freebies/sales), too many ARCs to name AND this doesn’t include my physical TBR pile. Just ask my husband, I have two giant stacks sitting next to the couch….it’s driving him nuts!

So when I saw that Kimberly @ the Caffeinated Book Reviewer was hosting the Take Control of your TBR Pile Challenge in March I knew I needed to join. The challenge starts on March 1st at midnight and ends March 31st at 11:59pm.

My Goals

Since my TBR pile is massive and there is no getting around it, my goals are simply to read 20 books and review them during the month of March. I plan to do a combo of eBooks, ARCs, and physical books to accomplish this. I think it’s doable 😀 Here’s a few of the books I plan to read:
