Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge Accepted

Posted February 9, 2018 by Lillian in Challenges / 4 Comments

The Take Control of Your TBR Challenge is hosted by Kimberly @ the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and takes place from March 1st to 31st of 2018. I am really looking forward to this challenge. I’ve participated twice now (I took last year off because we were moving into our house). It’s a fairly simple challenge: read books from your TBR pile that were published prior to March 1st. I’ve got plenty of those to choose from 😉 If you want to join me in this challenge, you can sign up here until March 3, 2018.

The Rules

  • Link-up! This is open to everyone. If you do not have a blog then link a shelf entitled Take Control 2018 from your Goodreads account. It is a good idea to friend me if your shelves are private.
  • Create a Goals/Updates/Results post (can be combined) It can also be a shelf created on Goodreads. Be sure to friend me, so I can see it. Friend me: Kimberly
  • Begins midnight March 1st, 2018 and ends March 31, 2018, at 11:59 pm.
  • Read/listen to books from your TBR pile.
  • ALL books/audios must have been published before March 1,  2018. I don’t care where you got them, so old ARCS count.
  • Post a review to Goodreads, or your blog then add the URL link it to the Rafflecopter for an entry. ( These can be a mini review. Just one or two sentences)
  • You can combine events, challenges etc.
  • Page count must be over 100 pages to qualify.
  • The rafflecopter will only allow you to enter up to two books daily, so update as soon as you finish a book.
  • Use hashtag #TakeControlTBR
  • Twitter Party March 11th @ 2:30 pm (CST)  Come chat about books you have read and win prizes.
  • Earn extra entries for participating in the Twitter Party
  • Rafflecopter will close on April 2, 2018, at midnight and a winner will be chosen within 72 hours. Open internationally as long as Book Depository ships to you. Prize: New 2018 release valued at up to 20 US dollars or 1 Audiobook Credit from Audiobooks.com. I will do pre-orders as well. (may request eBook copy from Amazon or B&N)

My Goal

So far 2018 has been a good reading year. In January I read/listened to 14 books, and so far in February I’m averaging 3-4 books a week. I’m SO close to getting above 80% on my Netgalley. Y’all it’s been a LONG time since I was above 80% and I’m stoked. With that said, my goal during this challenge is to read at least 10 off my TBR, preferably backlogged ARCs. Here are a few of the books I will choose from:

Book Cover for "Spindle Fire" by Lexa HillyerBook Cover for "The New Dark" by Lorraine ThomsonBook Cover for "Rebel Seoul" by Axie Oh

Book Cover for "The Falconer" by Elizabeth MayBook Cover for "Free Space" by Sean DankerBook Cover for "Shadow Fall" by Audrey Grey
