A Few Books on my Fall TBR Wish List

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday really didn’t light a fire under me. So, I thought I’d post some of the books I wish I had to read this Fall. But alas I’m trying to catch up. You can see my Fall TBR here.

  1. Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie
    Although Home Fire didn’t make it to the Man Booker Prize short list it’s on the long list with a host of other spectacular authors. I’ve seen mixed reviews on this and it’s either people love it or hate it.The suspenseful and heartbreaking story of an immigrant family driven to pit love against loyalty, with devastating consequences.

    Two families’ fates are inextricably, devastatingly entwined, in this searing novel that asks: What sacrifices will we make in the name of love? Continue reading

October TBR & 30-Day Reading Challenge

I am seriously behind in my reading challenges. According to Goodreads I’m 17 books behind my goal of 43. I know I’m not going to mak that goal, but I’m going to give it the ole college try; and get halfway through the 43, which is about 22 books.

I’ve decided to add a monthly TBR to my blog and a quarterly 30-day reading challenge.  I think it may help me stay on track. Continue reading

The Triple Dog Dare Pseudo- Reading Plan

I’m one of those people who have to have a plan. I have fun making plans. However, I am also one of those people who make plans and somehow quickly deviate from them.

Why? Who knows.

So, I’ve come up with another plan. Well, kind of.

tbr-final-dareAs you know or even if you don’t know, I’m participating in the last TBR Triple Dog Dare dare. It’s a fairly simple reading dare. All you have to do from January 1, 2016 to April 1, 2016 is read what’s in your TBR pile as of midnight December 31st. Continue reading

I Triple Dog Dare You

I stumbled across this blog and challenge dare when I was looking for the Art of the Novella reading challenge. It was kind of like six degrees of blogger separation. Looking for one thing, click on website, and something else comes up. Well, that’s what happened when I found James Reads Books and his TBR Triple Dog Dare.

The rules of the TBR Triple Dog Dare are simple.

For the first three months of 2016 read only the books that were already in your TBR stack as of midnight December 31, 2015.

Have FUN!!

One of the things that appeals to me about this challenge dare is you can change it as you see fit to keep having fun and not feel like you have an albatross around your neck.

So, sign up if you dare.

I dare you! 🙂

I’ll post my TBR Triple Dog Dare list in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back .
