Monthly To Be Read (TBR) Pile: July 2015 | Bewitching Bibliophile

My goal this year is 200 books, if I break that down it comes out to 19 books per month , and  4/5 books a week. Totally doable in my books, so as the proverb says, you can eat an elephant one bite at a time, so here's my first few bites:

Read So Far this Year: 64
2015 TBR Goal  :200
Monthly Goal: 19
TBR Balance: 136

I did amazing last month, I got a few more NetGalley books read and reviewed and cleaned up that pile a bit ( I still have a large stack to go through but I'm doing great.)

  1. Christine Feehan Novel  (Dark Demon)
  2. Brenda Jackson ( Quade's Babies)
  3. Finish a YA Novel I already started
  4. Finish a series
  5. Start a series
  6. Catch up on a series from my shelves
  7. Over 300 pages
  8. From a Genre I haven't read this year
  9. a Classic Novel
  10. An ARC from BEA 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
  11. A Pre-ordered book from Jan- June 2015
  12. 15 ebooks ( 3 purchased, 12 NetGalley/Edelweiss)
  13. Book been on my shelf more than 3 years
  14. Nora Roberts book I haven't read before
  15. New Adult I have already started
  16. 5 books from my shelf
I'm Participating in the #JenniferJuly  challenge on Youtube.  This is a challenge geared towards those who have a few Jennifer L Armentrout books left on their unread shelves,  It's hosted by Cool Beans Books and my TBR can be seen here.

Using I choose a number to signal a letter. Just to keep it interesting, I ended up with "y" being the letter chosen.  
  1. Yoga for emotional trauma
  2. You Know Who I am
  3. Your voice is all I hear
Last month I only had 12 books in the category "C" and I finished a few of them. I'm thinking since "Y" only has three that I will add the unfinished "c" into this month and just knock them off the list.  Including:
  1. Children of Hoarders (non Fiction)
  2. Christmas Brides
  3. Caged Warrior
  4. Coming Back Together (non fiction)
  5. Cowboy Behind the Badge
  6. Cowboy in my pocket
  7. Crack in the Armour
For the Challenges I signed up for at the beginning of the year I need to complete these to stay on track:

I still also need to pick two book for my Erotica Reading Challenge.  I've neglected this so far this year. I want to get back to this, my first love of the romance genres.  

And that's it, these are all the ones I want to read.  There are so many more new books coming out I can't wait.
