Because it's an easy one to do in the normal course of my reading, I'm participating in the Bookish TBR Pile Challenge once again!

The rules for this particular challenge are simple: any book published in or before 2014 is eligible. So, basically, any book not released this year. Piece of cake! Last year I read about 40 books that counted towards this challenge. I don't have a specific goal this year, but I figure as long as I hit 35 I'll be pretty happy! Here are the books I think I'll be reading this year, and I'll cross them off as I get through them. I'll also be adding any that fit the criteria but aren't on this list as I go!

These are books I picked for the Official 2015 TBR Pile Challenge hosted by Roof Beam Reader, but they'll count towards this one as well: 
  1. The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern
  2. Love Is the Higher Law - David Levithan

Any of you participating? Link me in the comments!


  1. I am not participating, but you definitely have a good list.

    I know only a few of them, and I have read only a few.

    Best of luck in your challenge. I am a "chicken challenge." :) I do have a to-read list, though.

    Have a good rest of your day.
