2019 Beat the Backlist challenge:

This post got out a lot later than I intended, but I am slowly working on some posts to add this month though it might take me a while to get them up. I started back in school, so I’ve mostly been busy with reading for classes and projects. I’m hoping to get a few posts up this month though.

2019 beat the backlist is hosted by novelknight.

This year I am signing up for the 2019 Beat the Backlist challenge again. Last year I read almost all of the books on myself except for a few, so I am hoping that I will be able to finish some books that I wasn’t able to in 2018. My goal is to read 75 books again this year and to challenge myself I am going to try and write a review of each book that I read. I’ve already made my list and have read one book so far so I will have that review up as soon as  I can. I would also like to write more reviews this year than I have in the past, so I am hoping that this idea will work out.

Most of the books that I have added this year are books that I added in 2015 and books that I have tried to add to my TBR list but never got to. I’m hoping to get through all of them but there are a couple of them that are pretty thick so we will see how many I will be able to read.

*Just a side note that books that I have read will be in bold, but the ones that I have deleted from my shelf will have a strike through them.
