Beat the Backlist 2018

beat the backlist

I’m participating in Austine’s awesome Beat the Backlist challenge again this year! Even if I was woefully short of my goal last year…at least according to the reviews I posted. I actually think I was reeeeally close to making it, but I didn’t take time to go back through my GoodReads list and add them all up. So this year I’m trying to be more realistic with my goal…no moves on the horizon this year (knock on wood), but I am starting school again, so there’s that. Also I’m not feeling super motivated at the moment even though I desperately WANT to be motivated…so yeah. I’m just aiming for 40 backlist books this year. I haven’t decided on ALL the titles, but there are quite a few on my physical TBR that have been screaming at me so those are on the top. Sorry, I’m not taking time to link every single book…but  I DO hope to review 90% of the books I read this year, so keep an eye out!

Yes, I’m leaving a bunch of those blank. While I have MORE than enough books on my TBR shelf to cover 40, I know from previous experience that I don’t do so well with strict lists and schedules. So I’m leaving this open to wherever the book muse should take me in 2018!
