The first challenge I am going to participate in is the Beat the Backlist challenge created by Austine over at Novel Knight. I try and vary my back list/TBR challenges each year and this year I found this one and I’m SO excited to join. I have a confession: the more hyped a book is the more likely I am going to have put it aside to read something else. That and there are just so many good books that you can’t possibly have time to read them all when they’re newer so they get hidden and backlist challenges are the best excuse to pull them out!
Instead of including a long list of books on this post (that could get long for you to scroll through and me to make) I made a special Goodreads shelf for this challenge with books that I plan to read and hopefully will read during 2017. Some of them are re-reads because I am planning on reading them before the other in the series. Here is where you can find my bookshelf for this challenge.I plan on making my goal to read 100 books in 2017.
I hope to at least read 50 back list titles.
There are about 50 books represented but some of these I only included the first book in a series but I plan on re-reading before starting on a more current release. I have also included some backlist series with only the first book represented (for example with Poison Study). So there should be more than enough to reach this goal!
I also am going to participate in the Hogwarts Mini Challenge that is also going on this year and hope to represent my team and help them dominate. My team will be….
This challenge is going to be pretty easy for me to do because fantasy is my favorite, and most read genre.My issue in this challenge (and pretty much every challenge) is keeping track of and recording my progress in a timely manner.
I want to challenge myself to read 30-50 fantasy books this year. I am giving myself some wiggle room but I want to challenge myself this year to read!
