To Be Read, Take Two (2014 TBR Challenge)

Three days; three posts! What is this madness?

Anyway, I started this year with a bunch of more-or-less goals in mind. Since I was determined to not feel like a failure if I went through the year without accomplishing them, I specifically didn’t call them resolutions. This is handy because I definitely didn’t accomplish any of them, though, not for lack of desire or effort.

In any event, I definitely failed at reading books for the TBR Pile Challenge. And whittling down my to-reads in general. Of the twelve books on last year’s list (picked from some 300+ on my to-read shelf) I managed to finish a total of two. And, unfortunately, neither of those counted in the challenge since I never wrote a review for either. Oops!

This time, I plan to be less of a slacker and so without further ado I present a new, yet slightly recycled list for the 2014 TBR Challenge:
