Reading Challenge Check Point: Mount TBR

The official link won't be up for a few days, but I'm also going to create my update post for the Mount TBR challenge today.

My original goal for this challenge was 12 books.  So far this year I've read:

1. Zero-Degree Murder by M. L Rowland
2. The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
3. Scene of the Climb by Kate Dyer-Seeley
4. Geared for the Grave by Duffy Brown
5. A Tine to Live, a Tine to Die by Edith Maxwell
6. Hearse and Buggy by Laura Bradford
7. Buttercream Bump Off by Jenn McKinlay
8. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein
9. Death is Like  Box of Chocolates by Kathy Aarons
10. Buried in a Bog by Sheila Connolly
11. Wouldn't It Be Deadly by D. E. Ireland

Yes, that's right, I'm almost done with the challenge, and we are only a quarter of the way into the year.  That's an even faster climb than I did last year.

I'm tempted to keep going and head to the next check point.  But I also think this year will find me reading more and more books that come out in 2015.  I think I'm going to hold at where I am, at least for the moment, and see how things are looking in June.  I don't want to over commit, after all.


  1. Well done! Those are some good titles. You're definitely doing better than I am. My TBR challenge goal (a different one) is 21 books, and so far I've only read about 5 and only reviewed 2. I'd better get a move on!

    1. You are definitely behind on reviewing, but you are about a quarter of the way through reading books for the challenge, and you are about a quarter of the way through the year, so I'd say you are on track, actually.

      Good luck completing the rest of it.

  2. Mark, congratulations on your spectacular progress so far! Feel free to keep on reading TBR books towards the next goal and commit to the next peak later. Having stated your initial goal as Pike's Peak, you've met the challenge as far as I'm concerned and any future peaks are just bonus!

    1. Thank you so much. I definitely do intend to keep climbing and see how far I get. I'm just not ready to commit to tackling a new peak, at least not yet.
