2015 Tbr Challenge

What is the TBR Challenge? Simply put, it’s where readers pick up a long neglected book from their TBR pile, read it, and comment on that read on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.

June 17 – More Than One (An author who has more than one book in your TBR pile) Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

July 15 – Lovely RITA (past RWA RITA winner and/or nominees – links to lists will be provided at later date) : First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
