Take Control of Your TBR Challenge

Son by Lois Lowry Take Control of Your TBR Pile

Take Control

Well it’s Monday and I’m still working through my TBR pile!  This past weekend, Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer had a read a thon but i just couldnt hang with it.  I guess my eyes are bigger than my stomach, as my mum used to say.

Anyway, I’ve just finished reading Son by Lois Lowry, and can I tell you I LOVED IT!!!!

Son Unconventional Librarian

In case you don’t know, Son is the last in The Giver quartet: The Giver, Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son.  I’ve had this copy since last summer at BEA and I couldn’t wait to get to it and thought for sure I’d find time to read the first three books.  Fast forward to now.  I picked up the book and thought I’d struggle with following the story, you know how a series can be!

Not to be a spoiler, but here’s the basic premise: there’s this utopian (secretly dystopian) society, that is alarmingly similar to Handmaid’s Tale, but for children (think MG and older) in which everyone has a certain job to do and no one complains about how monotonous their lives are.  We meet a new heroine, Claire, who somehow escapes this utopia and falls into another world, reuniting characters from previous books.  Claire goes on a journey to find the answers to some questions.  Vague, I know, but I don’t wanna spoil it!

Run to your nearest bookstore or library and read this book TODAY.

So, I’m gonna keep on keeping on with Kimba and the Challenge.


Let me see what I’m going to read next. Two down!




Take Control of your TBR Pile

I love reading books.  And that is a problem because I often agree to read books that I can’t get to.  I also have a list of books that I’d like to read that have nothing to do with book reviews.  Put all that together and you have one very long TBR (to be read) pile.

TBR Pile

That’s why I’m happy to be playing with Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer in the Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge in March. During the month of March, I will ONLY read books that have been neglected in my TBR pile, and trust me, there are plenty.

It’s sure to be crazy, hectic and prolly fulfilling.  Join me wontcha?
