2018 Beat the Backlist Challenge

I’ve seen other blogs join this challenge and thought it would be a great way to hold myself responsible for reading more books on my backlist. There are still a bunch of books from last year that I didn’t get around to reading so this challenge is perfect for me. The goal I’m going to set for myself is 20 books. Hopefully, this will help me get to those books that have been sitting on the back-burner for awhile.

If you’re interested in the challenge or want more information about it, head on over to this page. The simple rules are:

  • The challenge will run from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018. You have an ENTIRE YEAR to complete your goal!
  • Books must be released prior to 2018 to count for this challenge. Although we love new releases too, this isn’t the challenge for them.

Bookish Bingo: Fall 2016

 

I’m month late joining this challenge, but it looked too fun to pass up! Bookish Bingo is hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews and since I haven’t been able to read as much lately, I figured this would be a good way to challenge myself for October and November. The object is to get as many bingos as possible (five horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) with only one square per book. My goal is to hopefully get at least one! fall-bingo
