CHALLENGE: Review Copy Clean-Up

Posted 1 March, 2012 by Kristilyn in Challenges / 5 Comments

Vicky, over at Books, Biscuits & Tea and Celine over at Nyx Book Reviews had an awesome idea to host the Review Copy Clean-Up from March 1st to 31st. It’s for bloggers, like me, who have a review pile that’s piling up! I thought it would be wonderful incentive to catch up and read all the review books I have on hand before spring comes. A little spring-cleaning, so to speak.

You can read the guidelines and sign up for this challenge over at Books, Biscuits & Tea.

I will definitely be posting on Twitter my updates (#RCCleanup) and I’ll post a final update at the end of the month. I’ll be crossing off each book as I go!

Now, for the scary part of this post — the books! It’s kind of crazy how many books I have to read, but I can definitely do it and catch up!

Here’s my list:

  1. Dawn Comes Early, by Margaret Brownley (from Booksneeze)
  2. Miracle for Jen, by Linda Barrick (for blog tour, from Tyndale)
  3. The Breath of Allah, by Steven W. Richardson (from the author)
  4. I Am Me, by Ram Sundaram (from the publisher)
  5. The Book of Lost Fragrances, by M. J. Rose (from the publisher)
  6. The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do And How To Change It, by Charles Duhigg (from Goodreads First Reads)
  7. Angel Eyes, by Shannon Dittemore (for blog tour, from NetGalley)
  8. The Dog Walker, by Corwyn Alvaraz (from NetGalley)
  9. Forgiving Trinity, by Liz Reinhardt (for blog tour, from the author)
  10. Grave Mercy, by Robin LaFevers (from NetGalley)
  11. Hanging Hill, by Mo Hayder (from NetGalley)
  12. How To Cook Like a Man, by Daniel Duane (from NetGalley)
  13. Jump, by Jen Wylie (short story, from the author)
  14. Sweet Light, by Jen Wylie (short story, from the author)
  15. Wanderlove, by Kirsten Hubbard (from NetGalley)
  16. Softly & Tenderly, by Sara Evans (originally from NetGalley, but never read or reviewed)
  17. As The World Dies Trilogy, Book 1 & 2, by Rhiannon Frater (from the author)
Added books:

You’re Already Amazing, by Holley Gerth (from Graf-Martin)
The Dustman, by S. M. Blooding (from the author)
The Wedding Dress, by Rachel Hauck (from BookSneeze) 

See, I told you it was a little nuts. However, I have been known to set lofty goals and I plan to reach this one. Aside from these books, I also have my book club read to do before the 25th. Keep your fingers crossed for me because I’ll be doing a LOT of reading this month.

Are you planning to join this challenge?
