12 Challenge TBR

At the end of last year, I decided to participate in the 12 Challenge in 2023. I made it a goal to read as many books as I can this year to reach my goal of 50 books and see how many I can actually read. So, I have not only set a 23 books for 2023 challenge for myself, but I am also taking part in this challenge where 12 books were recommended to me.

The original is where 12 friends each recommend a book, and then you complete the challenge over a period of 12 months. However, I have switched it up a bit. I will be reading the 12 books recommended to me by 8 friends throughout the year, as I find the time to do so. As I am taking part in other challenges and trying to join more book clubs, I decided to read these books at my own pace.

Let us look at the 12 books recommended to me!
