2019 Beat the Backlist Sign-Up and TBR


I had such a great time doing Beat the Backlist, hosted by NovelKnight, in 2018 that I've decided to sign up again!  You can get all the details here, but basically this challenge helps us get to all those older titles on our TBRs (anything published before 2019 counts!).  This year you have the option of just being a general reader or you can join in the Hogwarts House Mini Challenge and earn points for your house.  There are also some other fun activities you can take part in, like a photo challenge.  I'm going to be playing for House Hufflepuff!


In 2018, I read way more books than I originally planned for this challenge, which is great!  For 2019, though, I'm setting a slightly lower goal, partly because some of the books I chose are really long!  I figure this is just a starting point, anyway.  Here are the books I'm really hoping to get to:


Are you joining Beat the Backlist?  What older titles do you want to read this year?

  4. I think you should start with The Song of Achilles! The audio was fantastic! Also, Warcross has been on my list for ages. I've actually borrowed the audiobook a few times from my library, but never manage to get to it on time. One of these days... :)

  8. This is a great challenge, it fits right in with some of what I'm thinking about for 2019 -- read more of the books on my shelves instead of the library or buying new! I'm going to go take a peek. Good luck!

    1. Thanks, Kim! Oh, I know, and this TBR doesn't even include the multitude of unread books I have on my shelves, but I'm hoping it will inspire me to read them!

  11. I finished both the Warcross and The Hundredth Floor series this year, and I really, really liked those series. The Knockoff caught my eye a while back. I hope you get to it, so then you can tell me how it is. Good luck with your challenge.
