2. Attack on the TBR pile 2015 (personal challenge)

TBR challenge

Goal: 10 books
Achieved: 6 books

My TBR pile slowly increases and though I read a bit, there are more incoming books than outgoing. So I will try to read some that have been on my TBR pile for a while. The books that add themselves to my TBR pile this year [2014] (and they really do it on their own – they really want to come you know. Really, I have almost nothing to do with it 🙂 ), don’t count here. Is quite ambitious, but well, here goes nothing.

 

  1. Renée Holler – Das Geheimnis des goldenen Salamanders
  2. Charlaine Harris – A Bone To Pick
  3. Andreas H. Schmachtl – Hieronymus Frosch: Das hat die Welt noch nicht gesehen
  4. John Farman – The Very Bloody History of Britain
  5. Rae Carson – The Crown of Embers
  6. Rae Carson – The Bitter Kingdom
