THE BLOGCHATTER READING (TBR) CHALLENGE 2021 HELPED ME KEEP TRACK OF THE BOOKS I READ

the Blogchatter reading TBR challenge blogaberry

When I heard of this challenge, I didn’t think I had it in me to finish even 2 books a month. Less than that would not be a challenge, now would it? When I realized that I had already read around 20 books since January, I decided to sign up in June and select 40 as my target – just to be safe and not over-estimate myself. I know I have crossed the mark by now because I have read almost all the free short books on the Juggernaut App, and still have a few on my shelf. But, I only upload selected books to the #TBRChallenge reader board.

And yes, I make sure I upload the covers only once I FINISH reading the books.

HOW YOU CAN GO ABOUT IT

*Think of an achievable number as your target. This will be the number of books you would want to finish reading by the end of the year.
*Once done, pick up a book and start your exciting reading journey!
*You can keep on adding the images of the book covers you are done with.
Remember – You cannot change the number later on unless you email the team to edit the same.

The Godfather (The Godfather, #1)The Godfather by Mario Puzo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not sure if this is the book I’m currently reading. In mine, there are 8 books of the Godfather by Mario Puzo alone. It was filled with crime, gory details, love, betrayal, sins, foul language, doting wives, etc. It was a pretty good read about how the mafia works and connects with other Families like them. The movie is made about the son of the actual Godfather. I’m planning to watch it and check out the details.

WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE PART

Even as avid readers, we do not keep a list of the books we have read. I review the books I read on GoodReads’ and Juggernaut’s website/app. But, it is lovely to have ALL your book memories (physical and virtual) in one place! So, personally, I thought this would be a fun way to keep track of what I have read, and make me feel proud at the end of the challenge! Also, lazy readers like me will have motivation to read throughout the year. For some of us, it is an ACHIEVEMENT!

THE BOOKS I’VE READ

Thanks to this challenge and a little self-motivation, I have read a lot of books this year. You can see some of them below!

Believe it or not, I’ve only recently heard of PG Wodehouse. Luckily, someone had his books and I am thoroughly enjoying his witty writing.  

Some books by Agatha Christie, who writes a genre I love.

Some books by William Sydney Porter also known as O’ Henry.

Here are some I’ve read from the Juggernaut App.

Here you will find some books by bloggers turned authors.

And here are some nice reads by new Indian authors.

I’m hoping to start the challenge by January for next year. What do you think of the books I’ve read? Do we have similar taste? Have you taken part in the TBR challenge ever? How was your experience?

    I keep my targets low because I no longer have the time to read like I used to! Currently at 24 out of my 30 target and I think I’ll get there. I also diligently upload the covers after I’ve finished the books!

  2. Even though I love reading books, I found the challenge intimidating ! I have opted for Mental Health as a cause I will espouse on my blog but the way you made it so easy to achieve and I know you have your hands full, I am surely going to take up this #TBR challenge next time !

  3. I had heard a lot about blogchatter reading challenge but never give this a try. I agree when we participate in any challenge, we feel more committed towards our goal. thank you so much for sharing so many amazing book recommendation in this post. I had read few of these in past.

  4. Awesome reads, Cindy. My reading has become limited to blog reading only. I guess I am getting old 🙁 . Congratulations and all the best for your reading challenge.
