2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Ohh I am really excited to be taking part in the 2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge. As we all know we have this overwhelming TBR pile that just keeps growing and growing. We all those those review books we get but then those poor already released books get shoved to the back. I am really happy to participate in this challenge. I know that there are some amazing books on my shelf waiting to be read and this is a great way to motivate myself to do that :)

There are 6 Bloggers, 12 Mini Challenges and 24 Books to Win.

Challenge Guidelines.

 ***This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2013 – Dec 31, 2013***
Anyone can enter! You don’t have to be a blogger, as long as you review the book you’ve read! (On your blog, Amazon, Goodreads or Shelfari!)
+ Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that’s been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Only books released in 2012 or earlier! NO  2013 ARCs or 2013 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
+ You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood suits you.
+ When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2013 TBR PILE Reading Challenge.
+ You can move up levels, but no moving down.
+ Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2013, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
On the 20th of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will be a unique theme, and include a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from that monthFor each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of your choice from The Book Depository. It’s open to INTERNATIONALS. The giveaway will be open until the next wrap up post goes up! (i.e., the entire year).
+ If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice - we will be checking.
+ December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you’ll link up in December will be entered into a HUGE giveaways

So to start off with I am going to try to aim for A Sweet Kiss Level. Let's be honest here, the chances of me being able to clear 50 TBR books off the shelf is highly unlikely, especially with reading the review books and life in general getting in the way. So to start off I am going for A Sweet Kiss!
