March 2014 Take Control of Your TBR Pile challenge sign-up

I've been reading a lot of review books lately, so I didn't think I was going to participate in this year's Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge, BUT then I realized two of the March book club selections at my local library are ones I have in my towering TBR pile! I'm not 100% sure I will make the deadline for both since the meetings are only two days apart, but I'm definitely going to try and use this challenge as some extra motivation. So my main goal is to read those two books and if I manage to read anything else, I will consider it a bonus!

If I actually succeed in making it to either of the book club meetings, I will post more about it afterwards -- there are also transportation issues, but I will start off on the right foot with reading the books -- wish me luck!

  1. Good luck Christine, and remember ARC's that have previously published before March 1 count too. Too of my reviews for late March are arcs that published in Jan/Feb.

  2. I've been wanting to read Divergent, I keep hearing such great things and I do want to read it before seeing the movie. But I just may wait for the movie to be on DVD, like I normally do.

    Beautiful Ruins was a great story. I really enjoyed it. Just closing my eyes and imagining I was in some of those locations was incredible. Especially because I read it while on a train. I think you'll like it.

  5. My March is already too busy to jump in on this one, but my TBR pile could definitely use some managing! I loved Beautiful Ruins when I read it last year so hopefully you will too :)

    1. Thanks! I've run into a dilemma though -- now that I've read Divergent, I want to continue with the series! That may not bode well for Beautiful Ruins, but I'm sure I will get to it...

  6. Divergent was hands down my favorite book in the trilogy! Happy to see that you're picking it up! Enjoy!
