2017 Beat the Backlist Challenge

The one thing I’m always complaining about is how long my TBR list is and how I just keep adding to it, so it’s really hard for me to take book recommendations, because I’m so backlogged. So, this challenge is perfect, because I want to focus on getting to those books I keep meaning to read and keep putting off for other books.

This challenge is hosted by Austine from NovelKnight, and she has a fun twist to gamify the challenge as well. Because I love playing games and participating in friendly competition, I’m also going to join the Hogwarts House Cup mini-challenge and read for Slytherin.

My goal at the moment is going to be 15 books — I feel I already do a good job trying to read at least 1 TBR book a month, so I’m going to raise the bar and see if I can do better than that. I may update this if I’m breezing through it, but we’ll see!

If you want to sign up yourself, go ahead and head over to NovelKnight and sign up!
