Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge!

March TBR

I randomly came across this month-long reading challenge that involves dealing with our unmanageable to-be-read pile. And I'm like: OHWOW, PERFECT! I was going to read a couple of April eARCs but when I saw this I knew that this is the time I clear some of the books from my tbr. So sorry, April review books.

things about #TakeControlTBR
- reading challenge started yesterday, March 1 and ends on March 31
- hosted by kimbacaffeinate @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
- ALL books/audios must be published before March 1, 2017.
- there will be a twitter party on March 15th @ 7PM (CST)
- there will also be a 24-hr TBR read-a-thon on March 18 (which I will not be participating in 'cause #busylife)
- signup post can be found here.
- there's a giveaway and books read and reviewed can be linked here.

I decided to divide my to-be-read list in two: (1) physical books and (2) ebooks. While I do have this list, I think that this will not be definite because my mind changes a lot. like A LOT. and I'm a really moody reader. BUT I'm sure that I'll read King's Cage soon (possibly on Saturday) as well as both Cruel Beauty and Heartless because of the #OWBookClub

edit: i totally forgot I listed a TBR on my roundup post. ohwell. i'll try to go around both TBRs. how crazy is that?
Also, ALL my updates will be posted on my #weekendreads and twitter!

Are you joining the #TakeControlTBR challenge? If so, what books are on your TBR? Also, random question, what do you prefer reading/read more: backlogs or new releases?

let's connect!


  1. Good luck with this readathon! I wish I can join in. Sigh.

    1. Thanks, Joy! Maybe you can join next time :)

  2. I didn't know about this challenge until I saw your post! If I had time I'd definitely take part. My TBR is out of control hahaaaaa

    Cruel Beauty is SOOO GOOD!! I hope you love it. Heartless is on my TBR, and I'm currently reading Holding Up the Universe

    1. Same! Which is why I join as much book challenges as I can, hahaha.
      So glad you love Cruel Beauty!! I'd love to read what you think of Holding Up the Universe. I've read nothing but good things about it.

  3. Ooh good luck with this!! I seriously am behind on my TBR and probably not catching up any time soon haha.😂 I REALLY loved Holding Up the Universe! So I hope you enjoy it. <3 And I prefer reading new books because then I can flail over them with other people just reading them. :D

    1. Thanks, Cait! I'm sure none of us can catch up on our unmanageable TBRs. I see what you mean. I do notice that most people actually read new releases. and I'm just here afraid to read new books because book-hype scares me.

  4. Good luck! Hope you enjoy Heartless, it's the next book on my TBR pile!

    1. Thank you! I'm really excited for Heartless! I hope we both enjoy it! :D
