Reading Challenge: 2014 TBR Pile

I succeeded at my 2013 TBR challenge. Not only that, I read 12 books that had been languishing on my shelves, unread, for years.

I have many more that are waiting to be read, though, so I'm also signing up for the 2014 challenge. The rules are, you can add any book you physically own, and have had for longer than a year. As you finish, link up your reviews, and post about them on Roof Beam Reader, where the challenge is hosted. Winners qualify for a prize drawing.

My list for 2014, in alphabetical order by author:
  1. The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood
  2. The Folk of the Air by Peter S. Beagle
  3. The Ladies of Grace Adieu by Susanna Clarke
  4. The Wild Wood by Charles de Lint
  5. Fire and Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones
  6. Black and White by Jackie Kessler and Caitlin Kittredge
  7. The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England by Ian Mortimer
  8. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
  9. Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
  10. The Mote in God's Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle
  11. If You Want to Write by Brenda Ueland
  12. Blackout by Connie Willis
My two backups are:
  1. Lisey's Story by Stephen King
  2. Animals Make Us Human by Temple Grandin
I'm looking forward to reading these. I leaned heavily on books people gave me as gifts, either because I asked for them or because they thought I'd like them. I'm looking forward to finding out if they were right.
