TBR Pile Challenge: 2014

Slow, hazy day at the library. So, I have been going around the blogosphere, pumping up my Feedly with book review blogs that seem fun and interesting. And that’s when I stumbled across Roof Beam Reader’s TBR Challenge. Basically, you take 12 books from your To-Be-Read List that have been there at least a year, and you commit to knocking them out in 2014. So, here is my list of TBR on Goodreads, and here’s what I’ve decided to read:

1. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (2007)

2. Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham (1915)

3. The Devil in the White City by Erik Larrson (2002)

4. Blueprints of the Afterlife by Brian Boudinot (2012)

5. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (2010)

6. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (2001)

7. Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson (2003)

8. Five Chiefs by John Paul Stephens (2011)

9. Love in the Time of Cholera bu Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1967)

10. Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie (1980)

11. Burning Chrome by William Gibson (1986)

12. Six Characters in Search of an Author by Luigi Pirandello (1921)

Alternates (in case any of the above prove to be unreadable)

13. Party Monster by James St. James (1999)

14.The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt (2011)

So, yeah. We’ll see how it goes.
