Wrap-up post: 2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

My TBR list gets longer with every passing year, so it seems like a good idea to take part in a reading challenge that makes me at least attempt to reduce the pile a little. This year, that reading challenge was the 2014 TBR Pile, hosted by Bookish. There were a number of levels, and once again, I didn´t want to aim too high.

I therefore chose level 4: Sweet Summer Fling, aiming to read at least 31-40 books on my TBR list. The books had to have been added before the beginning of 2014, and had to have been published in 2013 or earlier. I not only completed my initial goal by June 28th, I also surpassed my wildest expectations this year (way more than I managed in my TBR challenge in 2013), so I will be aiming for the highest level next year.
