The 2023 TBR Pile Challenge

For more years than I care to remember I’ve signed up for Roof Beam Reader’s TBR Pile Challenge hoping to read most, if not all of the 12 books and two alternates on my list. I’m embarrassed to say year after year I’ve failed miserably. No matter how hard I try, at best I manage to make it through a mere handful of my intended books. Frustrated by my history of poor performance I opted to sit this year out, despite 2023 marking the challenge’s 10th anniversary.

Over the weekend however I had second thoughts and decided to give the challenge another try. After a bit of wailing and gnashing of teeth I selected 12 books and two alternates I’d like to read over the course of the year.

In accordance with the rules of the reading challenge I’ll be updating my reading progress on a dedicated page on my blog. Maybe this year I’ll finally finish a good chunk of my selected books. Wish me luck.
