Joining: TBR Challenge 2013
Joining again, the TBR Challenge 2013 hosted by Wendy from The Misadventures of Super Librarian! I had such a great time digging through my TBR (to be read) pile of books in 2012 that there's no way I won't join in 2013. Plus my dear friends, I accumulated more books that now 'must' be read in 2013! What better way to get to them?
Wendy makes it easy to join and participate. Dig out one book per month from your TBR pile, read and review it on the date assigned. If you don't have a blog and don't want to review it, you can just leave a comment on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, anywhere online, and leave a link on Wendy's blog. It's that easy. Wendy makes it even easier by assigning themes per month in case we, the participants, can't decide what to read! But what I really love is that the themes are not written in stone and if a particular genre or book is calling... we can read that too.
Here are Wendy's schedule and the theme list for 2013:
January 16 - We Love Short Shorts! (Short stories, Novellas, category romance)
February 20 - Recommended Read (something recommended by a fellow reader)
March 20 - Series Catch-Up (pick a book from a series you're behind on)
April 17 - New-To-You Author
May 15 - More Than One (An author who has more than one book in your TBR pile).
June 19 - Lovely RITA (RWA RITA nominees OR winners)
July 17 - The Classics (Something classic within the romance genre - an author, a specific book, a trope/theme - I'm open to wide interpretations here!)
August 21 - Steamy reads (Erotic romance, erotica, something spicy!)
September 18 - Western (Contemporary or historical)
October 16 - Paranormal or romantic suspense
November 20 - All About The Hype (a book that created such chatter that it was inescapable).
December 18 - Holiday themes (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, it's all good!)
Thanks Wendy for hosting the TBR Challenge again in 2013!
