2018 Beat the Backlist Goals & TBR

I can’t believe that 2017 is almost over! But a new year means a second chance at succeeding at the challenge I set myself last year: to read backlist books. And y’all were so into it that it became a challenge which I’m excited to bring back for 2018! Last year I read over 50 backlist titles which was awesome! But I think I want […]

Welcome to #BeatTheBacklist 2018! (Sign-Ups OPEN)

Hello everyone and happy December!! Can you believe we only have a month left of 2017? Where did it go?! About this time last year, I introduced a reading challenge — Beat the Backlist. It started as a personal goal I set to read more backlist titles in the coming year because I realized that most of my TBR consisted of unreleased/newly released titles. And there’s […]

The idea was to read books that were published prior to the new year (i.e. for this year, anything published before 2017). We wanted to show those books some love just as much as the new releases. In our planning we had all sorts of fun things planned. Monthly […]

#ARCAugust 2017. Let’s Do This Thing.

Hello, friends! WOW can you believe I’m posting something that isn’t a book review? CRAZY. Life has been… not so kind… for blogging lately so reading and reviewing is about all I’ve been able to handle without going completely insane (I mean, I’m already partially there but best not to tempt fate, right?) Last year I participated in ARC August hosted by Read.Sleep.Repeat and it was so much […]
