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? 

Progress: 2 of 12 Completed / 1 of 12 Reviewed

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!

  1. I just linked up my second review for the challenge, and I’m partway through a third book. But I’ve been partway through it for a couple of weeks, so I may need to admit defeat on that one.

  2. I’ve managed somehow or other to read three of the twelve. I’ve written reviews for two of the three, Frankenstein and A Small Town in Germany by John Le Carre. Loved both of those. The third, O is for Outcast, still needs to be written. I had a lot of time to read in January, so that’s the only reason I’ve read three.

  3. I’ve just finished another and linked up the review! I just flew through Caroline: Little House, Revisited by Sarah Miller, which was a retelling of part of the Little House story told from the view of Ma Ingalls. It was better even than I had hoped! I really loved it!

  4. Oops – I commented already, but it seems to not have sent it through.
    I actually picked my most ambitious read to start the year off with, and am progressing through it nicely. So, although I haven’t finished any of my books yet, I’m quite pleased with how it is going. There are a few I should be able to whip through, and it will all even out around the summer!
