Tackle My TBR 2022

The Tackle My TBR Reading Challenge is returning for 2022! I know there is no shortage of TBR-based challenges out there. I’m not the only blogger or reader who struggles with this. If you’re looking to tackle YOUR TBR and want a low-key challenge to help you along the way, the Tackle My TBR Reading Challenge might be right up your alley. I hope you’ll join me.

Challenge Details

  • The 2022 Tackle My TBR Reading Challenge runs from January 1 – December 31, 2022. You can join at any time.
  • The goal is to read at least ONE book from your TBR every month. It can be an ARC, ebook, audiobook or print – your choice. Any reading is good reading!
  • If one TBR book a month isn’t enough, set your goal higher! Do you think you can read five a month? Ten? Go big or go home! There are some goal levels below if that’s your thing.
  • You don’t have to be a blogger to participate. You can track your progress on Goodreads, Insta, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube… wherever you want!
  • Use #TackleMyTBR2022 on social media.
  • Feel free to use the banner graphic on your posts and/or social media.
  • Comment and let me know if you’re in!
  • Tell your friends! [Shorter link for sharing: https://ki.mreads.link/tacklemytbr2022]

Challenge Levels

Back again this year: challenge levels! (Unsurprising to anyone who knows me, they’re football-themed.) Pick a level, any level! (These are all based on a 1-5+ books per month average.)

  • Safety: read 12 TBR books
  • Blitz: read 13-24 TBR books
  • First Down: read 25-36 TBR books
  • Field Goal: read 37-48 TBR books
  • Hail Mary: read 49-60 TBR books
  • Touchdown: read 61+ TBR books

And because reviewing is so important, I’ve added a couple of bonus levels!

  • Extra Point: review half of the TBR books you read
  • Two-Point Conversion: review all the TBR books you read

Tracking Templates

Also, back this year: Story templates for tracking your progress on Instagram! (Or anywhere, really.) You can find them in my Instagram highlights but can download the full-res versions from Dropbox if that’s easier.

I’m also introducing two fun new grid trackers for this year’s challenge! The first is a monthly grid that you can use as you read. The second allows you to track all of your “monthly-theme” reads in one place if you’re doing those.

That leads me to…

Monthly Themes

But wait, there’s more! Monthly themes! You can choose to follow the themes or not. It’s totally up to you. (And, just for the record, not ALL the books you read that month have to meet the theme. One is just fine.)  They’re fairly vague and totally open for interpretation. There are no hard and fast rules here!

New This Year

Okay, who doesn’t love a good bingo card on Instagram? I know I do! To keep this year-long challenge fresh, I decided to add a quarterly bingo card challenge as well. It’s totally optional, of course. I’ll release the following quarters mid-month the month before the challenge begins. You can download this card along with everything else from Dropbox or you can screenshot it from my Instagram highlights.

Goal Tracking

It’s up to you to track your goal however you’d like. I plan on including my own update in my monthly That’s a Wrap post. I’ll also be tracking on Instagram and on a Goodreads shelf dedicated to the Tackle My TBR Reading Challenge. You do whatever works for you.

Happy reading, friends!

    I’m in, though I’ll be doing it offline in a yearly book journal I keep (thanks for the cards & templates, I’ll definitely be using them in it this year!). I also don’t exactly have a TBR pile because I read both really fast & a lot – but I tend to pick up inexpensive books at thrift shops & I really ought to read more of them before donating them back (why do I keep doing this?!). So, my goal is to read at least some of those & maybe finally get to some of the odds & ends on my shelves I haven’t gotten to yet. No clue how I’ll do but I’m looking forward to pushing myself to read some different-for-me things this year. Thanks for the nudge!
