Q4 Review Pile Reading Challenge Wrap-up + Giveaway


It’s a wrap!

The year has ended and so has the Q4 2015 Review Pile Reading Challenge. Thank you ALL so much for participating in the challenging. I hope you were able to reduce those review book TBR piles so that you can start off 2016 guilt-free and with a clean slate.

While my December wasn’t nearly as successful as the other two challenge months, I kind of knew it wouldn’t be. So while I am disappointed that I didn’t read and review all the books I’d hoped to, I’m not surprised.

How I Did with My December Reads

  • PASSENGER by Alexandra Bracken – releases January 5th. Read & Review TK next week.
  • THICKER THAN WATER by Brigid Kemmerer – released December 29th. Read & Review TK today.
  • THE IMPOSTOR QUEEN by Sarah Fine – releases January 5th. Not yet read.
  • FORGET TOMORROW by Pintip Dunn – released November 3rd. Not yet read.
  • THE KILLING JAR by Jennifer Bosworth – releases January 12th. Not yet read.
  • THE VIOLINIST OF VENICE by Alyssa Palombo – released December 15th. Read & Review TK next week.
  • FLAWED by Cecilia Ahern – releases April 5th, 2016. Read & Review TK closer to release.
  • BLACKHEARTS by Nicole Castroman – releases February 9th, 2016. Review TK Feb. 8th.

I managed to read just five books in December and didn’t review any of them quite yet. A couple I’d read too early to review, one I’ll be reviewing today, and the other two I’ll be reviewing next week. But none of them qualify for the challenge. So a total fail.

Judging by the review links in the December post, however, I know you all did so much better than I did. Yay! And CONGRATULATIONS!
