The September & October Book Ban Challenge!

All right, so I had amazing lucky back in April and May with not buying an books. As soon as my book buying ban was up, I went a little crazy with the book buying. In that two  month span I read fifteen physical books (and that was not counting the ARCs that I read). So I’ve decided to do another two months of no book buying! Why? Because sometimes it’s good to widdle the backlog down so more.

However, there is going to be a catch. For starters, I will allow you readers of the blog to select from my TBR what I should read during the challenge. However, keep in mind: you can only pick one book, and if I do not own it, you need to select a different one. If the book is labelled ‘to-find’ it means I don’t have it! So check out my TBR on Goodreads and select ONE book from it that I should read during the ban. Leave your picks for me in the comments! 🙂

The second challenge is, I’m going to try and work in a few Stack of Fives here and there, but I’m not sure how that will work yet. It may be a case of as I feel like it, I’ll toss up onto twitter five books and the one with the most votes will be read in the challenge.

I’ve also decided I am not limiting this challenge to physical books, so ARCs, eBooks, audiobooks, anything that’s in my backlog is free game. My goal is simply to see how much I can read without buying more books. It’s going to be a bumpy road, but I think I can manage it. If YOU want to join in the fun, let me know and we’ll see if we can’t make an event out of it.

    Well I think you’d love ‘The Mad Scientist’s Daughter’ so I recommend that, but if I had to be selfish, I’d say ‘A Confusion of Princes’ because I need prodding to read it, and I really want to find the time for it 😀 So if you read and love it, that’ll help me out :3

      I would love to read A Confusion of Princes with you if you find a gap in your judging, OR we can just make time for a buddy read. When would you like to read it? 😀 Also I have been wanting to read the Mad Scientist’s Daughter forever and both books are sitting on my Kindle begging to be read.

        Reading it together would be awesome! I shall have to try and clear some reading over the next week then let you know? (Have two books to proof read as well as judging/reviewing… oops). So hopefully in a week or so? Apparently it’s amaaaazing!

    I vote for either Vixen, or Cosmos. Two very different choices.

    Vixen – because it is a fast read and will clear a book off your shelf.

    Cosmos – SPAAAAAAAAACE. And it is made of awesome.

    Also – I would be in on this if you wanted to make it into an event.
