TBR Challenge – trying again in 2010

Okay, I’m going to try this again. Probably, my life will get crazy again and I won’t get it all done–it’s hard for me to post reviews on a schedule–but I want to try. I want to pull some of these books off my TBR shelves. And even out of the box under my bed.

I am not going to put them down for any particular month, because I often read according to mood and I might not be in the mood for that particular book in whatever month. So…

Here we go.

I’ll match them to categories after I’ve selected them:

1. Moonlight and Mistletoe by Dawn Temple – Series romance (because Dawn’s a friend & I’ve been meaning to read this.)

2. Silent on the Moor by Deanna Raybourn – mystery/suspense (bought this at RWA conference, haven’t touched it, and I really want to.)

3. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith – YA fiction (romance?) I’ve heard a lot about this over the years & found it at a yard sale. In great shape!

4. The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer – I’m going to break out Regency from historical romance.

5. Firebird by Mercedes Lackey – fantasy

6. Ships of the Air by Martha Wells – Not Your Usual Setting. It’s in Ile-Rien – a made-up place.

7. Southern Comfort by Karen Kelley – Contemporary romance

8. Victory of Eagles by Naomi Novik – fantasy

9. The Captain’s Woman by Merline Lovelace – Western romance

10. Mysterious Ways by Terry W. Burns – Inspirational (I’ve had this a Loooong time…)

11. Dancing with Werewolves by Carole Nelson Douglas – New to me author

12. Love and Honor by Randall Wallace – historical novel (had this a long time too)

Hmm. I may switch the Lackey book out for something else…but my shelves are very heavy with fantasy and SF. ‘Cause I like it.

Maybe I’ll just name two designated alternates and sub one of them for whichever book I just can’t start.

Like Heart of the Wolf by Terry Spear- a paranormal romance, which I’ve been wanting to read a while now, and For the Love of Pete, by Julia Harper, which looks like a contemporary romantic comedy. :)

I will post blog reviews of these, hopefully when I’m supposed to. If I read them, that will be an accomplishment in itself.

Do y’all have anything you hope to read this year?

  1. Hi, Gail, are you freezing like we are here? Brrr… My hope for the New Year is getting my car started before I go to work this morning, and getting my stove working next week after it went on the blink the day before Christmas dinner! :) Hope you have a terrific New Years!

  2. You absolutely MUST read I CAPTURE THE CASTLE. One of my all-time favorite books. I think you’d love it. – Melissa F =)

  3. @Melissa – It’s on the list, and the stack in the middle of the futon.

    @Terry – Hey, girl. It’s been a while! Hope you’re having a great year. Mine’s Very Cold. :) For Galveston.

  4. I know I’m just now catching this post – cause I saw your review of Dawn’s book… but you so don’t want to see my TBR list for 2010… it is becoming epic…
