2012 Mount TBR Final Checkpoint

Alas, I did not make it up Mt. Ararat this year! There were just such pretty sights to see along the way! I took some scenic routes off the beaten path, did some bird-watching...

Yeah, I only read 31 books from my TBR pile (my goal was 40). Since I've read 86 books altogether, this seems ridiculous! But I guess I did start getting more review copies this year, and it took me awhile to learn to ever say no. Also, I got some new books in 2013 that just begged to be read! There were some library books in there too. Here's what I did end up reading for this challenge:

  1. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
  2. The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds by Sally Dubats
  3. The Hollow Tree by Janet Lunn
  4. Stolen by Kelley Armstrong
  5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  6. John Dies at the End by David Wong
  7. The Twits by Roald Dahl
  8. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
  9. Against the Fall of Night by Arthur C. Clarke
  10. Charmed Season 9 Volume 1 by Paul Ruditis
  11. The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More by Roald Dahl
  12. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson
  13. Jesus on Mars by Philip José Farmer
  14. The Mummy by Anne Rice
  15. The Visitor (Animorphs #2) by K.A. Applegate
  16. The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
  17. The Wish List by Eoin Colfer
  18. The Encounter (Animorphs #3) by K.A. Applegate
  19. Sabrina the Teenage Witch #14: Spying Eyes by Nancy Holder
  20. You are Microscopic (Choose Your Own Adventure #130) by Edward Packard
  21. Claws by Will Weaver
  22. The Message (Animorphs #4) by K.A. Applegate
  23. Carrie by Stephen King
  24. The Complete Works of Lewis Carroll
  25. Killer Virus (Choose Your Own Adventure #177) by R.A. Montgomery
  26. The Capture (Animorphs #6) by K.A. Applegate
  27. The Stranger (Animorphs #7) by K.A. Applegate 
  28. The Witching Hour by Anne Rice 
  29. The Andalite's Gift (Megamorphs #1) by K.A. Applegate
  30. S is for Space by Ray Bradbury 
  31. The Alien (Animorphs #8) by K.A. Applegate
But, I've already signed up for the 2013 challenge, with an even higher goal of 48 books! (Apparently, perhaps due to continental drift, or something, Mt. Ararat is growing.) 'Cause darn it, I set out to climb this mountain, and I'm gonna do it!


  1. Oh, so close! Sorry about that change on Mt. Ararat. It wound up my measurements were off. :-) Good luck with next year's climb!

    1. That's ok! It just gives me even more of a challenge for next year! I really need to get my TBR mountain range under control.
