2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Originial post @ Bookish

Challenge guidelines: 

  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2012 - Dec 31, 2012.
  2. As we would like to see quality reviews linked up to our monthly wrap-ups, only bloggers can enter. Sorry about that!
  3. Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that's been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Only books released in 2011 and earlier! NO ARCs and 2012 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
  4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.
  5. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2012 TBR PILE Reading Challenge (You need to include the info + host list + challenge button. You can also grab the button code and add it to your sidebar!)
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2012, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
  8. At the end of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will have it's unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this monthFor each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It's open to INTERNATIONALS. For participating in the mini-challenge you will get +1 entry.
  9. If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice - we will be checking ;)
  10. December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you'll link up in December will be entered into a HUGE giveaway - 12 books, 12 winners, INTERNATIONAL. 
You don't have to follow all the hosts to join the challenge, but you do have to follow all of us to be entered in giveaways!

The level I think I'll be comfortable with is probably A Friendly Hug, which is to read 11-20 books. I have tons of books that have been published in 2011 that I haven't read yet! I know, for sure, I'm not reading the whole list. But I'm just keeping track of the ones I want to read before this year is over. :D Fingers crossed I make it to at least 11 of these books! Here are books I plan on reading for this challenge:

-The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins
-A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies
-Delirium by Lauren Oliver
-Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
-Possess by Gretchen McNeil
-Wildefire by Karsten Knight
-The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
-Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
-Hereafter by Tara Hudson
-Divergent by Veronica Roth
-Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
-Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
-A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
-Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
-White Cat by Holly Black
-Wither by Lauren DeStefano
-Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
