Learn more about the #RockMyTBR 2016 reading challenge HERE
This next year I’m going to be participating in the #RockMyTBR reading challenge created by Sarah K. at the YA Book Traveler! It looks like it will be a pretty chill challenge that will help me eliminate more books off Mount TBR. To get us all excited for the reading challenge, Sarah with the help of Rachel (@bargainsnbooks) and Mikayla (@) created a book tag! Each category is a song title! Each really quite clever. Sarah tagged me on Twitter but this tag is open to everyone who wants to do it. :)
Don’t forget to check back here on MONDAY DECEMBER 14TH! I’ll be posting my reading list for this challenge along with everyone else who is participating that day. :)
Now, on to the tag!
Rock My TBR Song and Book Tag
1. SMELL LIKE TEEN SPIRIT (Nirvana) – A Contemporary I Want to Read
I STILL haven’t read this book. I don’t know why I haven’t. I am ashamed of myself. This year. This year I will rectify this.
2. SHUT UP AND DANCE (Walk to the Moon) – Most Anticipated Book You Have
I know! I know! The stars just weren’t in alignment this year so I was never able to fit it in to my reading schedule. It’s totally going to happen in the first few weeks of January though!
3. CENTURIES (REMIX) (Fall Out Boy) – A Twist on a Classic or Fairy Tale
I haven’t ever read a Juliet Marillier book which is sad because this book has been on my shelf for like five years now! It’s fitting that my first Marillier book would be a retelling of Beauty and the Beast!
4. YOSHIMI BATTLES THE PINK ROBOT (The Flaming Lips) – A Science Fiction Book or a Book Set in the Future
It seems appropriate that I chose one of the two John Scalzi books on my TBR for this question. I adored his Redshirts book and I’m super excited to read this one! I’ve heard nothing but great things about it!
5. SHE LOOKS SO PERFECT (5 Seconds of Summer) – A Book with a Girl on the Cover
I know. I know. You’re all thinking : “Jessie! You love Gail Carriger! Why haven’t you read this series yet?” Well, I’ve been waiting for all four books to be out so I can binge read them. It’s a lame reason but I couldn’t handle the wait between books. Now, it is time to read all the books!
6. AFRICA (Toto) – A Book Set in a Foreign Country
A Regency romance with magic by one of my favorite authors? Sign me up! It’s also set in England which makes it even more awesome! :)
7. ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST (Queen) – A Book or Books That Will Complete a Series
I adored the first two books in this series and I was super excited for this one! Unfortunately, it got buried on Mount TBR and forgotten about. These things do happen sometimes. I’m definitely going to read it this next year! I NEED TO READ BO AND ASTRID’S STORY!!! Also, slow clap for the publisher actually putting an Asian model on the cover for an Asian love interest.
8. SOMEONE NEW (Hozier) – A Book by an Author You Haven’t Read Yet
I have been collecting this series for a couple years now. It sounds like an amazing urban fantasy series set in New Orleans! I think it’s finally time to read a Suzanne Johnson book.
9. HELLO (Adele) – A Book your DNF or Weren’t in the Mood for at the Time
hides from Sarah I started this book but only got a few chapters in before I set it down. I just wasn’t in the mood for it when I picked it up. I’m still interested in reading it at some point.
10. LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT (Kylie Minogue)– A Book You Bought Because of the Cover
This cover caught my eye in the bookstore and then I became even more enamored with it when I read the synopsis. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it! And now that all three books are out and in my possession, I can binge read them all. :)
