Want To Read #ReadingChallenge

Hello fellow booklovers!

I am doing another Reading Challenge!

I am going to read as many books from my TBR as I can – in ascending order (from date added).


I have been doing weekly ‘Down the TBR hole‘ blog posts.

Here are the steps:

  • Put Goodreads TBR into ascending order of date added.
  • Read every book synopsis.
  • Decide if you’re going to keep it on your TBR or if it should go
  • Now you have a list of TBR books that you actually want to read!

While doing this I realised there are so many books that I would still love to read that I just keep on pushing away for new releases or hyped up books. So I am going to do a reading challenge for my winter (hello from the Southern Hemisphere) holiday. I have 574 books on my Want To Read list. So these are only the first couple of book on my TBR (that I still want to read). 

How it Works

  • Go to Goodreads and put your Want To Read list in ascending order.
  • Make a list of the books that you still want to read (I already did this in my ‘Down TBR TBR Hole’ blog posts.)
  • From this list (I only did the first 30 books) mark the books you have on your bookshelf or have easy access to.*
  • Start reading in ascending order and let’s see how far we can get!

*Having the book already / having easy access to it – will mean that you don’t have to spend any money on this challenge by going out and buying tons of books. *

Here is the list of the books that are on my TBR and on my bookshelf in ascending order.

  1. Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle #1) by Christopher Paolin
  2. Beautiful Darkness (Beautiful Creatures #2) by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl  

  3. The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater
  4. Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles #1) by Gena Showalter 
  5. The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1) by Marie Lu 
  6. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern 
  7. Lullaby (Watersong #2) by Amanda Hocking 
  8. Crossed (Matched #2) by Ally Condie
  9. The Kill Order (The Maze Runner 0.5) by James Dashner

Here are books that are on my TBR that I desperately want to read but I don’t have on my bookshelf. However, I can always get the eBooks or go searching for them if I get time!

    1. Defy (Defy #1) by Sara B. Larson
    1. Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by Robin LaFevers
    1. Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms #1) by Morgan Rhodes & Michelle Rowen

I hope you join me in my Holiday Reading Challenge! If you do – I would love to see your lists! Drop a comment or link this post. Let’s see how far I can get through my list. I will be doing an update at the end of the holiday to see how many books I finished reading.

Happy Reading !
