March 2016 Take Control of Your TBR Challenge

Posted February 29, 2016 by smutmatters in Challenges / 1 Comment


This challenge is hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. The rules are simple.

  • The challenge begins at midnight March 1st, 2016 and ends at midnight March 31st, 2016
  • Read or listen to books from the TBR
  • Books must be published before March 1, 2016. It doesn’t matter where they came from, so old ARCs will count too.
  • No novellas. Full novels only.

That’s it, really. I’m really excited for this. I have literally hundreds of books on my TBR. It’s a sickness, really. My goal for the month is to get through at least 20 of them. I’m going to see how this goes, and I may set myself a monthly TBR goal, as well. I have got to start whittling that pile down. There are physical books stacked in my book room, digital books on my devices, and audiobooks on my phone. I have a few ARCs scheduled for March, and I’ll still do those of course, but I’m going to try to keep the rest of the books I read in line with this challenge. I’ll keep this post updated with my progress. If you’d like to join, head on over to Caffeinated Book Reviewer and sign up!

Here are the books I read/listened to for this challenge:

So I didn’t quite make the goal I set for myself. But at least I got 15 books off the TBR. March was a strange reading month for me. I was restless in my reading, constantly picking up books and putting them down again. I’d read a few pages, then walk away for a while. The audiobooks were a lot better for me this month; I have my headphones constantly, so there wasn’t any walking away from them.

How about the rest of you; how did you do?
