TBR Challenge - not so good this year

Well, first year for the TBR challenge and I didn't do so well. I know I still have till the end of December however there is no way I'll be able to read more of these books. I recently sold my house and am in a temperary location until we find a new house to buy. So..that means I packed up almost all my books. I forgot to set aside some from this list plus I was way behind anyway. I do want to do this next year and hopefully I'll do much much better.

I think you made a very good effort. In the end, I don't think it matters whether or not you read all the books, but just that you were able to clear off some of those long waiting TBR books. :-) And you did read over half. That's an extra reason to celebrate.

I over did it with challenges this last half of the year and I'm suffering for it now. I'm still hanging in there, but I'm not hopeful. Haha
