I was taking past in the Beat The Backlist challenge during 2017 and I thought it was time to do a summary round-up post.
Beat The Backlist 2017 Summary
I feel like I kind of lost my motivation for the challenge towards the end of the year, but Beat The Backlist was a really fun time and I enjoyed focusing on books I’ve been meaning to read for years rather than getting caught up in the buzz of books recently published. This challenge worked especially well for me because I’m never someone who is immediately on top of recent publications and Beat The Backlist encouraged me to keep my focus on older books which are just as deserving of love as books newly published.
According to Goodreads, I read 13 books towards my Beat The Backlist challenge.
- Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
- The Hanging Tree by Ben Aaronovitch
- Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead
- Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
- Blood Promise Richelle Mead
