Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2013

Ahh... My TBR pile, a point of contention in my house.  Yes it's teetering, yes, it's actually several  piles in several places.  So I do need to conquer it and there's even a challenge for that!  The challenge, hosted by My Reader's Block, is simple, if you had it personally (not from the library) before 2013, it's your TBR pile.  Easy enough?  And who doesn't have a TBR pile?  So I'm joining in.  If you want to, check out the post for more information and to sign up.  Sign ups end Nov. 30, 2013.

My level is Mount Blanc which is 24 books from my TBR pile.  I think that is doable with review books and library books.  We'll see.  I'll list my books as I complete them here with links to reviews as I complete those as well.
  1. Imitation in Death by J.D. Robb
  2. Saving Grace by Christine Zolendz
  3. Divided in Death by J.D. Robb
  4. Vixen by Jillian Larkin
  5. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
  6. Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
  7. Because I Am Yours by Beth Kery
  8. Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Book to Movie Challenge 2013

Doing Dewey is hosting the Book to Movie Challenge, which sounds like a fun challenge to me.  I love reading a book and then seeing how they do with the movie. Sometimes they do a good job at interpreting the book, sometimes the interpretation is bad.  So it will be fun to read the books and then watch the movies.  Since I'm a reviewer and I've gone kind of challenge happy,

I'm going light with this one and committing to the Movie Fan level which is read 3 books and watch the corresponding movies.  To find out more about the challenge and sign up for yourself, head on over to Doing Dewey.

I'll list my books I've read here along with my links to my reviews of the books and my thoughts on the movies.
