2020 TBR Challenge


For the past 2 years I've participated in the Mount TBR Challenge (My Reader's Block), a challenge where book bloggers list a bunch of books they've neglected to read in hopes of getting around to them in the new year. I've failed miserably both times. 

So why do it again in 2020? 

Firstly, my 'mountain' was too high - this year I'm reducing the number from 36 to 20 books (some of which are stilling hanging around from the first challenge in 2018!) and it already feels more manageable. 

I've made more of an effort to select books I really want to read as opposed to those I 'should' read (i.e. unsolicited review books, popular books (at the time), and those which have 'done their time' on the shelf)). 

I'm very much a mood reader and each of the books I've selected offers up something (at least in the early part of 2020) which appeals to me, be it pulp, horror, true-crime, or speculative, the mix is eclectic and, I think, will fit in with whatever reading phase I'm going through during the year.
