Play Book Tag (PBT)

PBT is a group on Goodreads that anyone can join. Each month we vote on a “tag” (a theme) and share, discuss, and review books that fit the tag. It started on Shelfari and moved to Goodreads in 2018.

Below are the tags for each month and the book I plan to read. I’ll put a checkmark next to the book if I read it or cross it out if I don’t.

Science

How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems

Thought-Provoking

Broken (in the Best Way Possible)

Unofficial Trim Challenge

The Unofficial Trim Challenge is hosted by my PBT group. Each of us created a list of 24 books that are on our TBR. Each month, a participating member will randomly pick a remaining number between 1 through 24. Then, we read the book associated with that number on our list. Because there are 24 books, this challenge will last for two years.

Below is the list of my 24 books and numbers picked each month. I’ll put a checkmark next to the book if I read it or cross it out if I don’t.

  1. Mistborn: The Final Empire
  2. My Plain Jane
  3. Eleanor and the Iron King
  4. A Spy in the House
  5. Nine Perfect Strangers
