#rockmytbr 2016 reading challenge

Tuesday, December 01, 2015

this challenge comes at such a great time. over the past several months, a small pile of books has been collectively growing underneath my TV stand (where i usually just stash my recent purchases). maybe it's because the titles are obscured and all you can see is a pile of nondescript books lying on a shelf, but it's definitely growing.

i mentioned before that i don't usually buy books, which is true, but many of these books have just been lying there since May. some of them are graduation gifts, others a splurge on BookOutlet (hey, they have some great deals on there!) and others are just impulse purchases at Barnes & Noble (guilty).

either way, they are there, sitting and mocking me for being a hypocrite. my library checkouts get read more than the actual books i own. i feel awful. luckily, Sarah K over at The YA Book Traveler has created the #rockmytbr 2016 Reading Challenge!

oh yeaaah. made for me. this challenge is open to all readers, so whether you're a book blogger, booktuber or bookstagrammer, anyone is welcome to join! the only requirement is that you have to read a minimum of 1 book per month that you already own. i'm sure this also includes all those books you've accumulated over 2015, or previous years, but make sure to stay updated over on Sarah's blog.

so far these are the books and graphic novels i'm hoping to get through with the help of #rockmytbr:

  • 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
  • The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith 
  • Chew Volumes I and II by John Layman 
  • Ms Marvel Volume II by G. Willow Wilson 
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (this is a re-read bc i bought a beautiful edition)
  • The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde
  • 100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith
  • A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab 
  • The Caller by Juliet Marillier
  • Doctor Sleep by Stephen King (i need to read The Shining first though!) 

let me know if you have any of these books listed in your own tbr or if you're interested in jumping in on any of these! at the end of each month i'll update my progress with this challenge either through here or through Twitter!
