An Update on my TBR Challenge


Some of you may remember that way back in June I made the decision to try and clear the books that have been on my TBR for a while. I really needed a challenge to try and make some progress on some of the books that I have been neglecting. if you want to read more about my original motivations, here is my first post on this challenge.  In short, I decided that by the 31st December 2018, I would have read all of the books in the picture below:

tbrOh boy that is a lot of books!

That’s 36 books that have been waiting patiently for me for a long time and are well overdue some TLC.

It’s been a little over two months since I made that public pledge so I figured it was about time that I shared how much progress that I made with my original challenge. Are you ready?

  1. Pacts and Conjurations
  2. Encounters
  3. Know your Place
  4. The Robber Bride
  5. I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
  6. A Clockwork Orange
  7. The Other Life
  8. Going Postal
  9. Coffee
  10. The Famished Road
  11. Truth Sister
  12. White Rabbit, Red Wolf,
  13. Bone Surfers
  14. A Sky Painted Gold
  15. Fragments of the Lost
  16. Night of the Lightbringer
  17. On Writing
  18. The Coffin Path
  19. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns
  20. The Witch’s Blood
  21. I Stop Somewhere
  22. Children of Blood and Bone
  23. Clean
  24. The Blind Assassin
  25. Cinder
  26. Tender is the Night
  27. How to be both
  28. Crooked Kingdom
  29. Persephone
  30. The Song Rising
  31. Troublemakers
  32. Uprooted
  33. The truth and lies of Ella Black
  34. Bygone Badass Broads
  35. The Hazel Wood
  36. Alias Grace

The titles in bold are the ones that I have read, meaning that I have managed to read 7 out of 36 of the titles from my TBR challenge. That’s almost 20% of the books that I need to have read by the end of the year. I was worried that I had barely managed to read anything on this list but I do feel a little better now! I mean, I need to pick up the pace if I’m going to complete the challenge but I’m optimistic. If only I managed to stop picking up new books, I might even finish ahead of schedule….
