This is my first year as a book blogger, so I decided to be “active” and join the 2013 TBR Pile Challenge by Roof Beam Reader. Basically, I compile a list of 12 books (and 2 alternatives) that have been on my “To Be Read” list for over a year. This was actually fairly hard to do because I have almost 100 books on my TBR list and the commitment required by this challenge brought on a bit of anxiety. But, I managed to condense my list to the 12 books listed below. Keep in mind some of the links are to paperback versions, which came out in 2012, but all of the books were published prior to 2012.
