TBR Challenge 2019


Your mission, should you choose to accept it: once a month pull a dormant book out of your TBR pile and read it.  On the 3rd Wednesday of the month, talk about that book.

Participation is as easy as being on social media!
  • If you're on social media all you need to do is use the #TBRChallenge hashtag - there's no need to sign-up and your participation can vary throughout the year.
  • You can use this hashtag on any day, at any time - but we're still going to concentrate on the 3rd Wednesday of every month to kick our commentary into high gear.  
  • The idea is to have at least one day a month where we can always count on there being book chatter.
Want to let your blogging freak flag fly?  If you have a blog and want to post TBR commentary there, drop me a comment on this post with a link to your blog or hit me up on Twitter and I'll post it on this page so followers and other participants can find you.

Sound good?  Of course it does!  So what are the themes for 2019?  So glad you asked!

January 16 - We Love Short Shorts! (shorter reads)
February 20 - Series (book that is part of a series)
March 20 - Favorite Trope
April 17 - Something Different (unusual setting, sub genre you don't read all the time, etc.)
May 15 - Backlist Glom (author with more than one book in your TBR)
June 19 - Historical
July 17 - Contemporary
August 21 - Random Pick
September 18 - Kicking It Old School (original publication 10+ years ago)
October 16 - Paranormal or Romantic Suspense
November 20 - Sugar or Spice (closed door "just kisses" or super steamy!)
December 18 - Holiday (any holiday!)

As always, the themes are optional.  Don't like 'em, don't have to use them.  See how easy this is?  I mean really, how could you not want to join in on the fun?

Not a blogger but I'll sign up for 2019. It's been a stressful 18 months, but I'll give this a try. How are things going with you? Oh, and I've retired.

Hey Jill! Yes, you can still join even though you're not a blogger. Feel free to simply participate on your own (without posting) or post to your GoodReads account if you're still updating over there.

I had heard through the grapevine that you had retired - congratulations! It's same ol', same ol' with me. Busy at the Day Job, still on my current health and wellness kick, yada yada yada.

Yep, I'm still on GoodReads. And I do recommend retirement, though I don't have as much time to read as I thought I would! BUSY, but with stuff I want to do when I want to do it.
