It's time to wrap-up my progress on the 2017 Backlist Reader Challenge hosted by The Bookwyrm's Hoard! I chose 26 older titles to read during the year, with a mix of new-to-me authors, classics, and series I wanted to catch up on.
I loved this challenge because it really helped me clear out a lot of titles from my TBR. I thoroughly enjoyed many of the books I chose, and I even found a new favorite author in Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Some things I learned during this challenge:
- I chose a good number of books to tackle. It averaged out to about two books per month, and I did end up finishing early.
- For any future challenges, I wouldn't choose so many books from the same series. I ended up loving pretty much all the books I read this year in the Inspector Gamache series, but if I hadn't (and wanted to quit the series), that could have put a huge crimp in my ability to finish!
- My decision to do mini-reviews for these books was a good one. Since these books are older, a lot of people may have already read them or even written their own reviews. I didn't think it was necessary for me to write full reviews, except for one book that I absolutely adored and had so much to talk about!
Review: Forever, Interrupted
Did you do any reading challenges this year? How did you do?
