2015 TBR Challenge.


So, I know it has been a really long time, and at some point, I will post a big spiel about what's been going on in my life and the failed attempt to start blogging elsewhere (it didn't feel like home), but for now I have more important things.

I'm officially signing up for the 2015 TBR Challenge hosted by Adam at Roof Beam Reader. I've signed up every year since he started this deal, but I have yet to successfully complete it. Here's my chance. :)

Basically, you pick 12 titles you've been meaning to read for ages and ages (you get 2 alternates too) and you set a goal to get them READ by year's end. I usually start strong but stop pulling from the list come June/July. NOT THIS YEAR.

Here are my titles:
  1. Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
  2. The Song of the Lark by Willa Cather
  3. Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  4.  The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro 
  5. John Adams by David McCullough
  6.  The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte
  7. The Dark Mirror by Juliet Marillier
  8. The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens
  9.  Coriolanus by William Shakespeare
  10. The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare
  11. Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe
  12. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Alternates:
  1. Going After Cacciato by Tim O'Brien
  2. The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
 There you have it!

(more from me soon!)

  1. This looks like a great year of reading. Although I've read most of these authors, I've actually only read ONE of these books (The Jungle). That's insane. I did assign a Kingslover essay in my English Rhet/Comp course this semester - she's getting a lot of attention these days, which is good. :)

    Good luck (and welcome back!)

    1. Yes, and then watch the HBO miniseries, if you haven't already! It starred Paul Giamatti as John and Laura Linney as Abigail, and it was awesome.

  5. Welcome back!
    Great choices.... I loved Coriolanus, by far one of my favorites from Shakespeare. The Remains of the Day is a bit slow, but I love Ishiguro's beautiful prose.

    Good luck with the challenge! ;)

    1. I keep wanting to pick-up Coriolanus and then don't. I really should get to it one of these days.

  6. I really should do this, but I don't even know how I would narrow my TBR down that far. :)

  8. I LOVED Lady Audley's Secret! The Jungle, not so much, but I respect the historical significance.
