2014 TBR Challenge

I have never participated in any book challenges, so now that I am blogging and reviewing again, I’ve decided I want to give it a shot. I think the TBR Challenge is perfect for me, because I tend to want to read something, add it to my to-read list, and forget about it.

This challenge is hosted by BookishThe sign up page and complete list of rules can be found here.

The different levels are:

1-10 – A Firm Handshake
11-20 – A Friendly Hug
21-30 – First Kiss
31-40 – Sweet Summer Fling
41-50 – Could this be love?
50+ – Married With Children

I am going to aim for ‘First Kiss’, but may move up in levels as the year goes on. I don’t want to stress myself out with it, so I think 21-30 is a great place to start.
