Mount TBR Checkpoint, 2017 Vol. 4

I made it to the end of the Mount TBR challenge. 2017 started with me aiming for El Toro (75), but later on I realized I could actually bump that up to Mt. Everest (100 books), which turned out to be the perfect goal for me.

I actually achieved Mt. Everest status at the end of October. By the end of the year, I made it to 127. Wahooo! That's a lot of books down. Just hundreds more to go. :)

Time for some bookish fun! Here's some proverbial slogans provided by the Mount TBR challenge, personalized with some fun titles of books I read for the challenge in 2017. Titles are linked to my full reviews.

• A stitch in time... [is a] Time Bomb
• Don't count your chickens... [before the] Turkey Trot Murder
• A penny saved is... [in] Aunt Jo's Scrap Bag
• All good things must come... [to] The Ape Who Guards the Balance
• When in Rome... Three Go Searching
• All that glitters is not... [a] Purple Moon
• A picture is worth... The Destiny of a Galaxy
• When the going gets tough, the tough get... To Live Again
• Two wrongs don't make... The Courtship of Jo March
• The pen is mightier than... The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
• The squeaky wheel gets... [to] Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library
• Hope for the best, but prepare for... My Cousin Rachel
• Birds of a feather flock... [in the] Winter


  1. That's so cool that you read over 100 books!! I was going to try for that this year, but with work being the way it is, I went for a more realistic 50. If I reach it early on, I can always try for 100, though.

    Here's to lots of books getting read this year!

    1. Julian, thanks for stopping by. Happy reading this year!

  2. That's a super cool way to measure TBRs. Awesomeness! Congrats on all of your reading!
