My TBR pile is slowly but surely getting out of hand. Okay, let's be honest, it's by now stretching across multiple shelves and that's not even adding my eBook TBR on my Kindle. So when I saw Dahlia Adler share the idea of TBR Bingo, I jumped on it and made a card with a good chunk of my current TBR: Screen Shot 2017-08-12 at 9.32.11 PM

The rules are pretty simple:

Every time you see one of the books on social media, on a shelf, or someone mentions it--READ IT. Cross them off as you go.

If you have anything that doesn't get any buzz, read it anyway and share about it on social media.

Once you get a bingo, treat yourself to a new book, ARC, etc.

Personally, I try to make it through most of my TBR by the end of the year, but also keep adding pre-orders and impulse-buys based on recommendations (OMG, SO many impulse-buys, because I LOVE recommendations!)

You may notice that my card only has first books in a series and I'm not including my #TheReadingQuest TBR. I also added one just for my Kindle list since it's so much easier to lose track of your eBook TBR:

I love how predominantly queer my eBook TBR is. Can't wait to read all of those.

What are you currently reading? How are you conquering your TBR pile? Tell me in the comments!

Cheers and happy reading!

Slaying my TBR with #TheReadingQuest Aug. 13 - Sept. 10

I love reading challenges, especially when my TBR is huge. Which it is pretty much always. So, when I saw Aentee (Read at Midnight) sign up post for #TheReadingChallenge, I couldn't resist. Especially because I love the idea of reading challenges RPG-style. Check out Aentee's post here for #TheReadingQuest rules and how it works.

#TheReadingQuest Character Card

I'll start with the Mage path, because magic! But am hoping to at least do the Rogue path as well.

A book with a one-word title: WANT by Cindy Pon (+20 EXP)

A book that contains magic: THE BONE WITCH by Rin Chupeco (+20 EXP)

A book based on mythology: NOW I RISE by Kiersten White (+10 EXP)

A book set in a different world: CHAMELEON MOON by RoAnna Sylver (+20 EXP)

The first book of a series: BEYOND THE RED by Ava Jae (+20 EXP)

#TheReadingChallenge starts on Sunday, August 13 and ends on Sunday, September 10. I'm excited to see what everyone else is reading. Come join me and share your TBRs, reading thoughts, and reviews!
