This year I will be participating in a challenge hosted by Lindsay Mead (aka The Book Vlogger) It is called the "Kill The TBR Challenge" In which I will be reading 12 books that I currently own that have been sitting on my bookshelves. I am starting off with a low number because I like to always feel like I accomplished my challenges but fully intend on adding more once I complete the first step.
I will also be adding my own incentive to the challenge by putting $1 in a jar every time I read one of those books off my shelf. I am hoping that once the year gets rolling I will be able to look at that jar and have a visual of what I have actually accomplished so far, and by the end of the year am looking forward to a spending spree of all new books!
So if you have books sitting on your selves I encourage you to sign up as well, committing to a challenge is always the best way to get you motivated to do something.
As I read by mood and really am not sure what books I will be reading over the year I am not choosing them at this moment, but here is a list of books that have been really nagging me to pick them up asap:
The Adoration of Jenna Fox (currently reading)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (whole series)
The Lord of the Rings Series (including the Hobbit)
Song of Fire and Ice series (aka The Game of Thrones series)
Vampire Academy Series
Blue Bloods Series
