Beat the Backlist 2018


Description by novelknight

“This reading challenge is focused on knocking off titles that have been on your TBR for a while, or even ones that get pushed aside for new releases. While we LOVE new releases, we also want to show some of those older titles love too.”

**I originally made this as a page, but not sure if pingbacks and trackbacks work only on posts, so I’m making it a post now**

I declare to tackle my backlist TBR!!!

I have a lot of books that I have been putting off because of new exciting releases, arcs and hype and wooooo, but I want to give love to all those previously released gems. I wont make a list because I automatically feel like avoiding them, like any task heh. So I will just put down below the books I have read, their release year and a link to my review.

    You’re right my TBR is SO long it’s crazy. Thanks for this post, its a reminder that the books I haven’t read can be and are just as great as the newer ones coming out. I will make the pledge and go through it one by one 🙂

  3. Good luck, Alicia! 🙂 I feel the same way, I’m always distracted by the shiny new releases and completely forgot about the old ones… Which is a shame because they need our love too!
    Your method sounds like it might work, so I’ll give it a go sometime 🙂
