2015 TBR Pile Challenge Wrap-Up

      No Comments on 2015 TBR Pile Challenge Wrap-Up

Hey, I succeeded on this one! I knew I’d read at least twelve books from my to-read pile, but I’m happy to have specifically read twelve books from this list. I love making lists of books, but I often have trouble following those lists, as I tend to add books I feel I’ve been ignoring, which may or may not be the books I feel like picking up when I’m browsing the shelf. The list also must consist of books you’ve had on the shelf for at least a year, which makes you dig around the shelves a bit more.

I completed 12 out of the 14 books:

  1. A House of Pomegranates by Oscar Wilde
  2. For Whom the Bell Tolls by Earnest Hemingway
  3. The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
  4. The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
  5. The Captain and the Enemy by Graham Greene
  6. Atonement by Ian McEwan
  7. Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee
  8. Stephen Fry in America by Stephen Fry
  9. The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi
  10. A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett
  11. French Lessons by Peter Mayle
  12. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle

Alternates:

  1. Without Feathers by Woody Allen
  2. In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson

I unfortunately didn’t get to Hemingway. I had good intentions, but every time I picked it up I just was not excited. Someday it’s going to happen. Unfortunately, this is the the last year Roof Beam Reader is hosting the challenge, so maybe I’ll find a similar challenge and add it to that list.
