Beat the Backlist 2018


Here’s my first challenge of the new year! I’m so excited to do this challenge, because I have so many books piled up that I want to read, but I’ve been neglecting them to read new ARCs instead. Now I finally have a reason to read them!

Here are the rules:

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.

You can sign up here and don’t forget to tag #BeatTheBacklist and @BeatTheBacklist on Twitter.

Once you sign up, you will be put into a team so you can earn points and prizes.
