2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

I’m starting to plan my reading challenges for next year – so nerdy. This challenge is being run exclusively by Bookish and you need to sign up for the challenge on their site if you want to be eligible for the prizes.

What attracts me to this challenge is the fact that I can only read books published in 2013 or earlier. I have quite a few that fit this criteria and being forced to read some oldies rather than the latest shinies will be good for cleaning out my Kobo.

Deadline: 31 December
Read Total: 50 / 50
Reviewed Total: 31 / 50

Challenge Guidelines

1.  This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2014 – Dec 31, 2014.
2.  Anyone can enter! You don’t have to be a blogger, as long as you review the book you’ve read! (On your blog, Amazon, Random Buzzers or Goodreads/Shelfari!)
3.  Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that’s been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Short stories and novellas are OK, too! Only books released in 2013 and earlier! NO 2014 ARCs and 2014 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.
5.  When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2014 TBRPILE Reading Challenge. (If you don’t have a blog, post about it on Facebook or Tweet!
6.  You can move up levels, but no moving down.
7.  Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2014, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
8. On the 20th of each month we will post a wrap-up post on BOOKISH. Every wrap-up will have it’s unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this month. For each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It’s open to INTERNATIONALS. The giveaway will be open until the next wrap up post goes up! (i.e. the entire month)
9.  If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice – we will be checking ;
10.  December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you’ll link up in December will be entered into a GRAND PRIZE giveaway
11.  You don’t have to follow Bookish Blog to join the challenge, but you do have to follow us to be entered in giveaways!


This is how many books you’re planning to read for this challenge in 2014. I’m going to be conservative given I have the whole year to do this and I can move up if I need to.

    • To be honest I picked summer fling because I’m in the middle of summer. Now I actually have to work out how to meet the requirements.
