Hello, TBR Pile Challengers!
Welcome to our second checkpoint for this year’s TBR Pile Challenge! It looks like some of you are off to a rip-roaring start! Way to go! As for me? Well, I am almost exactly where I was in January. So, I suddenly find myself falling behind, after having been on track! But what else is new?
So far, I’ve read 2 of my 12 required books. I do plan to start Book 3 very soon, but more importantly, I need to get some reviews written and posted! Last month, I mentioned that I’ve actually never read a book by Dean Koontz. Now I can say that I have. And it was… interesting?
I plan (really, I do!) to read all 14 of the books on my list this year, the main 12 plus my 2 alternates, so getting a jump-start on this list before spring semester began was important. I think I’ll read something non-fiction, next, since I’ve read two novels already. Perhaps Light the Dark, to help re-ignite my writing as well.
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!
Congratulations to Bev of My Reader’s Block, who is the winner of our very first mini-challenge! Bev will receive a book of her choice from The Book Depository ($15 USD or less).
P.S. Congratulations to Jean of Howling Frog Books, who is the overall “winner” of the 2018 TBR Pile Challenge! Jean will receive a $50 Amazon gift card OR $50 of books from The Book Depository. Thanks to all who participated!

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
