2015 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Sunday, December 28, 2014
"We all have those books. We buy them, win them, they're gifted to us. Then we put them up on a bookshelf and there they stay, collecting dust, waiting for the time when we'll finally decide to pick them up."

This is my first time doing this. I wanted to do the 2014 challenge but it was already ending so I saw no point. But this will be perfect because I have so many books that I've been wanting to read. My TBR is piling up and I want to get as much done as possible since I graduated high school. It will keep me busy while I look for a job so I should have loads of time to read.

The beginning of this year was really stressful as my time as a student was ending and I was applying for colleges. And so far I have only read 35 books this year. But I'm aiming to go high for the year of 2015. I want to go past 100 but for now I'll leave it at around 41-50 books and see how it goes.


1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2015 - December 31, 2015. The sign up link will remain open until January 16, 2015 at 11:30am.

2. Anyone can enter! You don't have to be a blogger, just as long as you review the book you've read. You can review on your book on your blog, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, etc.

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. Short stories and novellas do count! The only stipulations that the book must have been released in 2014 or earlier. No 2015 ARCs or 2015 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed.

4. On the 25th of every other month (see schedule below), we will post a wrap-up for the previous two months. These posts will be done by one our bloggers and will contain new linkys for you to add your own wrap-up posts. If you did not sign up by January 17, this is where you can sign up as well.

5. To help you tackle your TBR piles we will also be hosting Read-A-Longs on months that do not have wrap-ups. Voted on by challenge participants, Read-A-Longs will have two post dates: the first half of the book and the second half. Please note: You do not have to take part in our Read-A-Longs to participate in the TBR Pile Challenge. You can participate in all of them, some of them, or none of them. This aspect of the challenge is entirely optional.

6. There will be two giveaways - July and December. Giveaway details will be explained once the giveaway post goes up. We don't want to overwhelm you with too many details now :)

7. You don't have to follow Bookish to join the challenge, but you do have to follow us to be entered in the giveaways.
