Beat the Backlist – 2020

Good morning bookworms!

As we all may remember (and I sometimes forget), I signed up to, uhhh, a lot of challenges in 2019. What can I say? I have bookish FOMO. Unfortunately this bookish FOMO also results in me buying a lot of books. Which takes us back to the reason why we’re here. I am signing up for Beat the Backlist for the second year in a row!

Beat the Backlist pledge

Yes, you heard me. Despite the fact that I think I added more books than removed from my backlist in 2019, I honestly can’t wait to make a bigger dent in the untameable pile of books.

In case you need a refresh, or you’re new to the party, Beat the Backlist is hosted by Austine at The Novel Knight. You should totally check out Austine’s blog because she is a lovely human being, and I highly recommend joining this challenge if you, like me, have a VERY long list of unread books. I’m also planning on doing the mini challenges. So, without any further ado, please see my absolutely long TBR…

The list currently sits at 251 books… My goal for the year is 75 books. As in, to read 75 books, not get my list down to 75 books!!

I’ll be taking one book per month either by recommendation from someone, or I’ll be running a Twitter poll based on multiple recommendations, depending on who picks my books each month. So feel free to recommend me a book to read each month!!

  1. Meghan!!!!! The first book you will absolutly read starting 01.01. is A WINTER’S PROMISE!! READ IT! Seriously, you need to read it. Is it on top of your pile yet? 😱😱😱
    That’s an amazing list, by the way. I still have to make mine or maybe I’ll just put up a link for a Goodreads shelf. 😅 75 is honestly a lot, especially since I hope to read about 80 books the whole year. Maybe half of it will be backlist titles, I’m trying to be realistic. 😅

    1. Ahhh, excellent recommendation!! I will add it to my January TBR!!
      I’m thinking about doing a monthly poll where people can choose a book from my backlist for me to read. I just… don’t know how to manage this with 250 books!!
      Also, I’ve read almost 120 books so far this year, so I really should dedicate more time to my TBR!!

  2. I thought I commented on this post but apparently I didn’t?? I’m still putting my shelf together and haven’t even WRITTEN my post yet 😀 so I really need to decide which books to go on it.
    Ahhhh Dark Lover!!! I love that series and definitely need to go read it again (as I didn’t even finish it because there’s like 100 books in the series.
    I’m happy you’re reading the Percy Jackson series! When we finally finish the Curse Workers series, do you wanna do another buddy read of Percy Jackson? They’re quick books 😁
    Good luck if you try The Name of the Wind! Ooh, I have Reckless as an owned book!

    1. I would love someone to push me to finish the PJ series!!! I read Lightning Thief this year, and the novella after it, but definitely happy to BR the rest with you!!
      TBH, I’ve had Dark Lover for so long, it probably wasn’t 100 books long when it was recommended to me?! 😂

      1. Yes!! I have The Lightning Thief at home (but could always borrow it from Libby anyway) Which novella? Demigod Diaries? The Unofficial Camp Half-Blood Guide (I think it’s called that).
        Haha, I think I started to read it (when my sister was at work, so definitely without her knowing 😂) maybe when it was about 5 or 6 books? And know it’s reaching 15? 20?
