2016 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

This is going to be the year that I complete this challenge with gusto. I managed 16/20 books for this challenge last year as I had a baby – Mr R. is seriously good at helping me generate excuses – and if that doesn’t convince you, then technically ‘a friendly hug’ is 11-20 books so I did sort of complete it last year. I have so many books that are crying out to be read that I am aiming for 20 books again. 

Deadline: 31 December
Read Total: 16 / 20
Reviewed Total: 9 / 20


Challenge Guidelines

1. The challenged will run from January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015. The sign up link will remain open until January 16, 2015 at 11:30am
2. Anyone can enter! You don’t have to be a blogger, just as long as you review the book you’ve read. You can review on your book on your blog, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, etc.
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. Short stories and novellas do count! The only stipulations that the book must have been released in 2015 or earlier. No 2016 ARCs or 2016 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed.
4. On the last Monday every other month (see schedule below), we will post a wrap-up for the previous two months. These posts will be done by one our bloggers and will contain new linkys for you to add your own wrap-up posts.
5. You don’t have to follow Bookish to join the challenge, but you do have to follow us to be entered in the giveaways.
