Take Control

You can use hastag #TakeControl on twitter and share your progress. Share the Take Control Button or this post on your blog, Facebook or twitter to earn an extra entry for each place you share. (Rafflecopter will post March 1st, so be sure and enter them)

*note this challenge can be done in conjunction with any other TBR challenge as long as the book is read between March 1st and 31st.

Another challenge that works perfectly with my 2013 TBR Pile & Mount TBR ones, and run by one of my best bookish blogger friends Kimberly, huzzah! I knew I was going to sign up for this but just wanted to wait until today, the 1st, to post it. Since I’m already doing 2 TBR challenges for the year (and am almost done with one, woohoo!) this won’t really change my reading habits all that much, though I think I will put a small twist on my focus for the month. For the month of March I will try and read as many of my series books that also qualify as TBR pile ones. Not only will this make a lovely dent in my TBR challenges, but I should make some great progress on my Seriously Series Reading Challenge as well! Aren’t these things great motivators? ^.^

So goals, because what is a challenge post without them?! Out of the 31 books I will be reading for the month (per my goodreads challenge) I will try and read at least 22 from my TBR pile (~70%). Sounds reasonable right? This should also help, as all of the books would be full length novels, to decrease my novella reading for the month. An additional challenge to overcome but I think I’m up to it! So here are the series I am working on that have books that qualify as TBR, most of the TBR books will be from these:

Dragoneer Saga – M.R. Mathias

Pendragon – D.J. MacHale

The Protector – M.R. Merrick

Shades of London – Maureen Johnson

Daughter of Smoke & Bone – Laini Taylor

The Iron Fey – Julie Kagawa

Scanguards Vampires – Tina Folsom

Legend – Marie Lu

There are other series that I might start (Unearthly, Under the Never Sky & Everneath to name a few) as well as ones that have not been completed but have books coming out in 2013 (Razorland series, Spellbound & Brightest Kind of Darkness are some). I can’t wait to whittle down some more on my TBR & Series challenges & piles! One thing to really look forward to, and incentive if you haven’t signed up for this yet, is there is a readathon! Weeeeeeeeeeee! I sure do love me some readathons! ^.^ Time to go read! *poof*
