Reminder: #TBRChallenge Day is Wednesday June 15!

Hey, hey, hey it's that time of the month again - #TBRChallenge time! The next Challenge is set for Wednesday, June 15.  This month's (always) optional theme is After the War.

This was another suggestion that came out of the theme poll I ran last year and there's a lot of ways this one can be interpreted.  Path of least resistance would be a story that takes place after a literal war, perhaps with a military veteran protagonist. Or you could get a little more metaphorical about "war" - maybe a book featuring a heroine recovering from a messy break-up/divorce or a character with a traumatic past of some sort? Put your thinking caps on and get creative!

But remember, the themes are completely optional.  Maybe this all sounds too angsty to you or like too much work. Remember the goal of the challenge has been, and always will be, to read something (anything!) that's been languishing in your mountain range of unread books.

It's not too late to participate in this year's Challenge!  If you're interested or you just want to follow along with those participating, be sure to check out the TBR Challenge 2022 Information Page

I actually managed to finish a book that matched the theme and, amazingly, write and publish a review.

Yeah, I might have finished my book at 9PM on the day of the Challenge - but at least I got a review up before midnight. Sigh. My reading these days seems to come in fits and starts. I plowed through 3 books over Memorial Day Weekend and then kind of stalled out afterward.

"fits and starts" is exactly how it's going for me. And, sadly, too many of the 'starts' stall somewhere, until I don't even remember what I've read.
