2013 TBR PILE Reading Challenge




Hurray! This is my first time participating in a reading challenge such as this one so I am very excited. I have a lot of 2012 books left unread and I think this'll be the perfect opportunity to read them.

CHALLENGE GUIDLINES
  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2013 – Dec 31, 2013
  2. Anyone can enter! You don’t have to be a blogger, as long as you review the book you’ve read! (On your blog, Amazon, Goodreads or Shelfari!)
  3. Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that’s been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Only books released in 2012 or earlier! NO  2013 ARCs or 2013 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
  4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood suits you.
  5. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2013 TBR PILE Reading Challenge.
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2013, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
  8. On the 20th of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will be a unique theme, and include a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from that month. For each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of your choice from The Book Depository. It’s open to INTERNATIONALS. The giveaway will be open until the next wrap up post goes up! (i.e., the entire year).
  9. If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice - we will be checking.
  10. December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you’ll link up in December will be entered into a HUGE giveaway for a box of books.
  11. You don’t have to follow all the hosts to join the challenge, but you do have to follow all of us to be entered in the giveaways!
LEVELS
(The number of books you're planning to read for this challenge in 2013)

1-10 - A Firm Handshake
11-20 - A Friendly Hug
21-30 - A Sweet Kiss
31-40 - Love At First Sight
41-50 - Married With Children

I'll start off with A Sweet Kiss (21-30) so as to avoid chances of failing this challenge quickly. I might add more if time permits. After all, I'll be starting my last year in college next year. LAST YEAR BABY! That means internship, thesis and endless workload. *gulp*

Here are some of the books I'm going to read:
  1. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
  2. Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
  3. From What I Remember... by Stacy Kramer, Valerie Thomas
  4. Do Not Disturb by Tilly Bagshawe
  5. Every Day by David Levithan 
  6. Easy by Tammara Webber

  14. Madapple by Christina Meldrum

As you can see I have a varied reading list. I try to read different books as much as I can. I just don't want to feel fed up of the same formulaic story lines.

That's that. I'm so excited! Click this link to see full details about the reading challenge as well as the Linky with the other participating blogs. ;-)
