Beat the Backlist 2018 – Reading Challenge

Hello, everyone!

Today I’m posting my plans for the Reading Challenge: Beat the Backlist 2018. I heard a lot about it from different bloggers and on social media and it made me interested to join. This is going to be my very first reading challenge and I’m really excited!

When is the challenge going to run and for how long? Well like the name suggests it is a 2018 reading challenge and it starts on the very first day of the new year. January 1st. It’s going to last until 31st December 2018. Which means that if you want to participate you don’t need to stress, you have a whole year to accomplish your goals! Which is pretty awesome. There’s really no pressure. At least I think! Knowing myself I’ll stress a lot.

The books you’re going to read have to be released before 2018! Which is great for me because at least half (even more) of my physical TBR (100 something) was released way before this year even. So I have a lot of choice of what to read.

I honestly don’t know how many books I’d like to read for the challenge so I’ll go with 20. I’m probably going to read more books than that for the challenge but I’m trying to start low! However, I’m not going to add my TBR as I like to decide that every month of what I want to read.

    1. What I like the most about this challenge is that you can make your own goals and the only restriction is that it has to be books published before 2018. And the duration is 12 months so I don’t even think that I’m going to stress to “win” the challenge. But I can completely understand your point of view! πŸ™‚

  1. Good luck in this! I’ve thought about doing this–I’m sure it wouldn’t be too hard for me, since I almost never read new releases anyways–but I always hesitate with committing to things, even when they’re as small and silly as a reading challenge. For now, I think I’ll just stick with the Goodreads challenge. But maybe for 2019? Haha, we’ll see.

  2. Never in my life have I thought of a reading list before! I think I have been living in a bubble (well reading atleast 15 books a year)so this is really interesting
