Beat the Backlist is a new challenge I’m adding to my already huge list of yearly challenges. It’s similar to Rock My TBR so I’m hoping to combine a lot of those books. Basically all we have to do is read books that were published prior to 2017 so that we’re reading more than just new releases. It’s hosted over at Novel Knight so go check out her blog to see even more info.
I’m not making a full TBR because I never stick to them anyways. I have decided that I’m keeping my goals fairly low so that I can actually accomplish them. I want to read 2 older releases a month for a total of 24 books.
Even though I’m not making a TBR here are some books that I’d really like to get to next year.
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs
Eon by Alison Goodman
Art of Racing in the Rain by Barth Stein
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

I hope you all decided to join too! There’s also going to be a bit of a competition to go with it to make it even more fun!
