2013 TBR Pile Challenge

The official rules of this challenge can be found at Roof Beam Reader.

I have away to many books in my various TBR piles.  Yes, I have more than one TBR pile.  I have my official TBR list on GoodReads, and the books on my Nook that have never made it to my GoodReads account.  As well, as books that I have been planning to read but never wrote down.

2013 is the year of trying to read some of those books and this is the challenge that is going to help me do it.

The Official Twelve Books:

  1. Song Yet Sung by James McBride
  2. Conception: A Novel by Kalisha Buckhanon
  3. Orange Mint and Honey by Carleen Brice(
  4. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
  5. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
  6. Push by Sapphire
  7. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
  8. Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  9. Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
  10. Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
  11. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bonte
  12. Jane Erye by Charlotte Bonte
  1. Little Bee by Chris Cleave (finished 01/08/2013)
  2. Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  3. 16 Bars: A Short Story Mixtap eby Ran Walker 


  1. Many classics on the list. I forgot about Push. I need to put that on my TBR. BTW the bout of books readathon starts on the 7th to the 13th

    1. Thanks for the correction... I would have missed it.

      I have been meaning to read Push for forever. I am going to get it off my TBR pile this year.

  2. I have Orange Mint and Honey but I probably won't get to it this year. If I'm not mistaken, several of these are part of the Barnes and Noble classics series, which I love by the way. I'm currently reading Pride and Prejudice from that collection. No challenges for me this year.

    1. I got all of the classics from the B&N Classic Series. I loaded up when they had the eBooks for free.
