TBR Pile- Reading Challenge

Everyone has these books. You know, the books you buy or get as a present that you really want to read but they end up just going on your shelf and collecting dust. Well, guess what?! Here's your chance to wipe the dust away and actually get to reading them! I'm joining and there's so much more. There will be mini-challenges and giveaways and other fun stuff! I'll post the guidelines and the schedule from Evie @ Bookish at the end of my post.

Here's what's in my TBR pile (I will have a full list as a page, for now.. just a few :D)
1. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
2. Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz
3. Awake At Dawn by C.C. Hunter
4. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
5. Wings by Aprillyne Pike
6. A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
7. The Entire House of Night Series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
8. The Immortals Series by Alyson Noel
9. The Luxe Series by Anna Godbersen
...And so many more!

Challenge guidelines:

  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2012 - Dec 31, 2012.
  2. As we would like to see quality reviews linked up to our monthly wrap-ups, only bloggers can enter. Sorry about that!
  3. 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 2011 and earlier! NO ARCs and 2012 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
  4. 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 takes you.
  5. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2012 TBR PILE Reading Challenge (You need to include the info + host list + challenge button. You can also grab the button code and add it to your sidebar!)
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2012, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
  8. At the end of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will have it'sunique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this month. For each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It's open to INTERNATIONALS. For participating in the mini-challenge you will get +1 entry.
  9. 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 ;)
  10. 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 giveaway - 12 books, 12 winners, INTERNATIONAL.
  11. You don't have to follow all the hosts to join the challenge, but you do have to follow all of us to be entered in giveaways!
