Last year, before I started this blog, I saw some readers on bookstagram and Twitter participating in #ARCAugust. I thought it was pretty cool to have so many ARCs that you needed a whole month dedicated to reading them. Little did I know, a year later I’d be in that exact situation (I have Netgalley to thank for that)!
Hello again my fellow book nerds! Today I’m finally putting up my entry post for a year-long challenge that I’ve been wanting to participate in for a while!
The lovely bloggers Austine and Tia over at Novel Knight are hosting Beat the Backlist, a challenge meant to help readers make a dent in their huge TBRs, or even just read some of those older books that keep getting pushed aside in favor of new releases. Considering I currently have a TBR of 140+ books, I definitely fit in that category.
If I’m being honest with myself, I know I have zero hope of ever fully completing my TBR. I buy books at least three times as fast as I read them, so unless I took a few years off and did nothing but read, I’m always gonna have an ongoing TBR list.
BUT – there are quite a few books that have been sitting on my shelf for maybe 2 or 3 years that I’ve never gotten to. Yeah, it’s pretty bad. That’s why I’m hoping Beat the Backlist can help me finally read those books!
