TackleTBRTackleTBR 2017 is off and running.  If you missed my advance warning in August you can read all about this Readathon there.

In May I did the Clean Sweep ARC to get some of those new releases off my shelf.  I’ve continued to pick up ‘new’ books i.e. not on my TBR list, through Bookclub reads that looked interesting.  I really must get further down my TBR (and hopefully catch up on my Alphabet Soup Challenge, which is also lagging behind).

My TackleTBR Goal for 2017

Between now and 24th September, these are my target books (and any other challenge they qualify for – they’ll all count for the TBR Mountain). I don’t expect to read them all, though, five would be great!

  • A Siege of Bitterns by Steve Burrows (Wild Goose Chase)
    • Enjoyable murder mystery with plenty of twists, set in North Norfolk, and heavily involving birdwatching and pollution. I’ll look for more in the series.
  • Kit’s Wilderness by David Almond (Alphabet Soup)
    • Amazingly evocative and beautifully gritty tale of a thirteen year old boy and some very strange friends.
  • Science and Islam by Ehsan Masood (Non-fiction Adventure and Colour-coded Challenge)
  • The Outcast Dead by Elly Griffiths (Alphabet Soup)
    • I had things to do today. I read the Outcast Dead instead. Couldn’t put it down. Love this series.
  • The Voyages of the Seven by R E Weber (Alphabet Soup)
  • The Five Elements by Scott Marlowe (Colour-coded Challenge)
  • Gasp of the Ghoulish Guinea Pig by Sam Hay (What an Animal)
    • Highly enjoyable easy reader chapter book. Ideal for pet-lovers!

I’ll do a one-line write-up here when I finish each one, and add their covers below, so you can check on my progress.

You can join in TackleTBR right up until 20th September – and there are giveaways and prizes to be won, too.  Watch out for my own challenge to other participants and a giveway on Tuesday next week (It’ll go live Monday afternoon in the UK, so no Monday post). For more details see Wishful Endings sign-up post here.

    I was going to do this, but never got organized. At this point, I have several read-for-reviews to do, and one Beta 🙂 I’d better not constrain myself any further than that.

      I’m thinking of not doing any Challenges next year. The TBR can go bust. I walked into two bookstores today, and saw four books to add to my TBR….

        And I looked at your “currently reading” list and added two more to my TBR. Clearly a lost cause, though I did read one off the list this month.

    What’s the minimum number>? I usually read 5-6 books a month, most of them for Rosie’s book reviews.

      I don’t think there’s any minimum! Although I suppose the challenge is to do more than usual – or to stop falling behind.
