TBR Pile: January 2016

TBR Pile: January 2016

Hello guys!! I hope no one minds the sudden influx of posts. I'm in the midsts of trying to figure out how to organize all of my blog posts along with scheduling everything. Hopefully, in the future, I'll actually get everything typed ahead of time so everything will be shared in a more timely manner.

Until this, though, please excuse the mess. >:

Here are the books I plan on reading this month! Might be a bit ambitious but I'm gonna shoot for it.

Physical Books:








eARCs to review ASAP:



I decided to also join in a challenge called '2016 Challenge - Read Tamora Pierce'. Wooo!!


I really love her books and I really wish I had read more of them. This is one of the biggest reasons why I decided to join in. I don't know how many I plan on reading this year, as I don't want to overwhelm myself too much, but I decided to start on the Emelan series (linked for reference) at the least.

For this month, I'll read:


I may read more during the month, depending on how I go with finishing my current TBR list above, so... yay!!

Another challenge that I'm going to do (yeah, yeah, yeah...) involves the Read Harder Challenge 2016 which is hosted by Book Riot! I found myself pulled into this challenge just simply because it encourages others to read books outside their usual genre - for me, that's teen fiction in general. I'll type out the list that I've commited to already below. It'll be better than this post having an onslaught of photos.
