Here we go… a second attempt at knocking off those books which are forever doomed to the eternal TBR pile…
Beat The Backlist is a reading challenge hosted by Novel Knight, with an aim to reading the backlist titles that we push to one side in favour of new releases. Anything published in or before 2018 counts, and the book must be started and completed between Jan 1st – Dec 31st 2019. For example, I started reading Normal People in December 2018, so although I haven’t finished it yet, it can’t go against this reading challenge!
So, without further ado, here’s a quick list of some books I hope to read this year:
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
The Bear and The Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean
Further Backlist TBR:
The Silence of The Girls by Pat Barker
The Mermaid by Christina Henry
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Viscious by V.E. Schwab
Everless by Sara Holland
The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
Furyborn by Clare Legrand
Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
This of course isn’t the limit to the amount of books I want to read for this challenge, nor will it remain exclusively to the ones I’ve included here as I’m very much a mood reader, but I feel like this is a great place to start!
