2018 TBR Pile Challenge: Reading List


Roof Beam Reader is hosting the 2018 TBR Pile Challenge over at his blog, this is a challenge I certainly need in my life.

For the whole of 2017 I haven’t bought a single book (well, I lie I bought a book about trolls on holiday in Norway as a souvenir but that’s it). I decided to do this as I wanted to tackle my ever growing TBR pile which has approximately 300 books. But with the book ban I rediscovered the library so out of the 113 books I’ve currently read 38 of my own books which is shocking – although at least I haven’t gained anymore. I’ve picked a selection of books and grouped them together on my bookshelf so they aren’t lost.

My 12 books:
1. A Short History of Nearly Everything bu Bill Bryson
2. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
3. The Trees by Ali Shaw
4. Mr Fox by Helen Oyeyemi
5. Captain’s Share by Nathan Lowell
6. The Marvels by Brian Shelznick
7. By the Light We Know Our Names by Anne Valente
8. The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zeot by David Mitchell
9. The Book of Chameleons by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
10. The Little Red Chairs by Edna O’Brien
11. Light Between Oceans by M.L Steadman
12. The Blazing World by Siri Hustvedt

1. The True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey
2. Maddaddam by Margaret Atwood

  1. So glad you’re joining us! Your list looks awesome, but the only one I’ve read is A Short History…., which is great. I love Atwood but haven’t read any of that series yet. Good luck!

  2. I think I may have to join you in this challenge – I never seem to read the books I already have even though most of them still really appeal to me. Too easily distracted by new shiny things! I haven’t read any of your choices but several of them are ones I’d like to… enjoy! 😀

  3. Aren’t libraries amazing! My challenge is that my reserves all come in at once! You have a great list. I love Bill Bryson and The Light Between Oceans was also a great read.
