2018 TBR Pile Challenge

November Checkpoint! #TBR2018RBR

Hello, TBR Pile Challengers!

It is November 28th, which means I’m nearly a full two weeks late in getting this checkpoint posted. What happened!? Suddenly, the days seem to be barreling down on us, with time quickly running out for this little challenge of ours. If you’re like me, you have a lot of reading left to do before the year’s end.

Question of the Month: Did/do you have any holiday reading plans? Any specific seasonal titles on your list?

My Progress: 7 of 12 Completed / 5 of 12 Reviewed

I’ve now managed to read 7 of my books and am currently reading number 8. I’ve reviewed 5 so far (just need to get my thoughts down on Pudd’nhead Wilson and Good Without God! In other words, and as the lateness of this post might suggest, I’ve made absolutely zero progress since last month’s checkpoint! Things have been too hectic in life and at work, I guess. That said, I will have two weeks before end of year to read as much as I want, since I’ll be on break. So, perhaps I can do this, yet?

My completed reads:

How are you doing?


Below, you’re going to find the infamous Mr. Linky widget. If you read and review any challenge books this month, please link-up on the widget below. This Mr. Linky will be re-posted every month so that we can compile a large list of all that we’re reading and reviewing together this year. Each review that is linked-up on this widget throughout the year may also earn you entries into future related giveaways, so don’t forget to keep this updated! At the end of the challenge, all entries will go into one big raffle for the $50 book prize!

There is no mini-challenge this month because the big annual prize is coming up soon. Good luck!

  1. I have read 13 of 14 books! And am working on the last book right now. My Christmas reading consists of a reread of A Christmas Carol, and reading some stories from Dickens at Christmas and Trollope’s ‘Christmas at Thompson Hall’.

  2. I’ve just finished Doctor Zhivago which means I’ve read 12 of the 14 but I’m not going to read the other two. Instead it’s The English Patient for now and then The Mysteries of Udolpho for end of Jan!

  3. I just posted #11! And #12 is on my TBR for December.
    I would like to thank you for hosting this challenge. This is my first time participating and it has really helped me to drive into some older titles that I have wanted to read.
    I am hoping you will be hosting again in 2019…no pressure 🙂

  4. I’m so impressed with everyone’s follow-through this year! I’ve read only two of my twelve. The House of the Vampire by George Sylvester Viereck is currently free for Kindle so I snagged it. Maybe in 2019 I’ll just jump around and read from other people’s lists. Haha.

  5. Oh, dear, I’m so behind on this. I think I’ve read more of my TBR pile than I’ve written about, and it’s not looking likely I’ll have time to finish up either by the end of the year! Ah well, this is the time of year we start to pledge to “do better next year,” isn’t it? But it’s been a great challenge, nonetheless – definitely got me to finally read some books I’ve been meaning to get to.

    I still have a couple of reviews to write. Overall, I think I’ll finish with 11 books read which isn’t too shabby. My holiday reading plans are to simply try to read when I can during all the madness. I’m looking forward to selecting a new batch for 2019!
