TBR Challenge 2015

TBR Challenge is something I try for every year for the past few years. It is hosted by RoofBeamReader.

The Goal: To finally read 12 books from my “to be read” pile (within 12 months).
Each of these 12 books must have been on my bookshelf or “To Be Read” list for AT LEAST one full year. This means the book cannot have a publication date of 1/1/2013 or later (any book published in the year 2012 or earlier qualifies, as long as it has been on my TBR pile – the host WILL be checking publication dates). Caveat: Two (2) alternates are allowed, just in case one or two of the books end up in the “can’t get through” pile.
My complete and final list must be posted by January 15th, 2015.
Crossovers from other challenges are totally acceptable, as long as I have never read the book before and it was published before 2014!
Here are my choices:
1. The Sacred Cut by David Hewson. Finished January 25
2. Gently Down the Stream by Ray Robertson. Finished January 31
3. Carpentaria by Alexis Wright. Finished August 22
4. Biografi by Lloyd Jones. Finished December 29
5. Going Bovine by Libby Bray. Finished February 22
6. A Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cosse
7. Burned Alive by Souad. Finished July 18
