2015 TBR Pile Challenge


The goal of this challenge is to read books that have been sitting in my TBR pile for a long time.  Basically make a list of 12 books that have been on your TBR pile for at least one year (any book published before 2014 qualifies as long as it has been on your list for a year) and read them before 2015 is over. For the full details of the challenge see Roof Beam Reader’s original post here.

I am actually really excited to do this because there are so many books that have been sitting on my TBR pile that I feel guilty about neglecting.

  1. A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson – completed Jan 6, 2015
  2. Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer – completed Jan 20, 2015
  3. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
  4. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne – completed Jan 14, 2015
  5. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
  6. Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
  7. White Oleander by Janet Fitch
  8. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman – completed Feb 19, 2015
  9. The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Potzsch
  10. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  11. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
  12. The Distant Hours by Kate Morton (DNF)

Alternates (you are allowed 2 in case you can’t get through one of your original 12)

  1. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
  2. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

As I read these books throughout the coming year I will update each book with a link to my review of that book.

Happy reading!

  2. Happy reading! I’m participating in the challenge too. I’ve read about half the books on your list and by far my fave is Into Thin Air. That book stuck with me. I also loved White Oleander and The Red Tent too. What one are you going to start with?
