Thursday update: We are now at 20 participants total! Woot!
Wow! We have 15 people who have already said they’ll participate in January’s challenge. If anyone else wants to join in, you can post here or in the thread below.
As you can see, to the left I’ve created a section in my sidebar to track the TBR challenge each month. I’ve listed the participants and once you complete your challenge, send me a link to your post on your blog and I’ll turn your name on the sidebar into a link to that post. If you don’t have a blog or don’t want to review the book on your blog, you can post it in the comments of the January challenge (link is also to the left) or email me and I’ll make it a post of it’s very own 🙂 Sidebar starts over at the beginning of February!
Here’s the format for review (you can write it however you want, but use this if you’re feeling unmotivated, lol):
Why did you get this book?
Do you like the cover?
Did you enjoy the book?
Was the author new to you and would you read something by this author again?
Are you keeping it or passing it on?
Simple enough, right?
And the breakdown for this year’s challenges, unless anyone has any subsitutions they’d like to make:
January: Contemporary Romance
February: A book by a new-to-you author
March: Historical Romance
April: A book that’s been on your TBR pile longer than 6 months
May: In honor of Memorial Day; War, law enforcement, military type or something similar (even loosely related counts)
June: A book that was recommended by someone you “know” (another blogger, author, friend, family member) or got a lot of buzz and that’s why you bought it but it’s still on your TBR pile
July: Romantic Suspense
August: A non-romance book, fiction or non-fiction
September: Category Romance
October: Paranormal Romance or Fantasy
November: A book originally published as an e-book (even if you have it in print now)
December: A book published prior to 2006
Keep in mind, this is a TBR challenge, so try to find a book from your TBR pile. But if you want to participate but have to get a book to do it, that’s cool too!
