Beat the Backlist TBR

A big goal of mine for 2019 is to read more backlist books. This means books that aren’t new releases, or advance copies of books (which is a huge percentage of my books). To do this in 2019, I want to balance my reading out by reading 1/3 backlist titles, 1/3 current titles for upcoming reviews, and 1/3 further out releases. That way I can be excited for books in the future, keep on top of my reviews, and read old stuff. Hopefully on audiobook!

So when I saw Austine’s Beat the Backlist challenge, I knew I had to sign up. How many is my goal for 2019? I want to read 26 books (at least) that were all released in 2018 or earlier. This will be easy since a few of these are ones I should have reviewed last year….or books for my #backlistusom book club (a great way to read backlist books for this challenge)!

Without further ado, meet my TBR!

  1. Illuminae
  2. A Darker Shade of Magic
  3. Pride
  4. For A Muse of Fire
  5. Broken Things
  6. Summer Bird Blue
  7. Strange Grace
  8. Access Restricted
  9. This Cruel Design
  10. Strange the Dreamer
  11. To Be Honest
  12. Unearthed
  13. That’s Not What Happened
  14. The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik
  15. Everything Leads to You
  16. Little & Lion
  17. And I Darken
  18. Enchantment of Ravens
  19. Truthwitch
  20. Wink Poppy Midnight
  21. I Was Born for This
  22. Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hugo
  23. They Both Die at the End
  24. Daughter of the Pirate King
  25. Furthermore
  26. Summer Prince

This intimidates me just looking at it. But hopefully I can find my inner strength and conquer this list? It’s about 2 a month. And most of these are audiobooks, so hopefully I can listen to them that way via Scribd. Are you going to join us?

What books from 2018 do you want to read in 2019?
