The Beat The Backlist challenge 2018 really appealed to me because I have so many books that I’ve been meaning to read and well I never seem to get around to them.
These books always seem to take second place to all the review ARCS and the fabulous new releases I find myself reading.
I also find that if it’s been a while since I’ve read a book in a series I’m finding myself putting off reading it as I need to recap by reading previous titles and I never seem to make the time which is sad.
I have such good intentions really I do but they always seem to fall by the wayside and it’s always I will read it tomorrow, which never happens.
So I’m hopefully going to make a large dent in My Goodreads TBR pile which at the moment currently stands at 211 books and counting!!!
I know shocking.

So first I saw this challenge at¬†Trisy @¬†Bobo’s Book Bank
and the challenge is hosted by  Austine @ NovelKnight

So thanks to them both do go check out their posts.

 What is Beat the Backlist?

In short, this is a reading challenge where your goal is to read backlist books (published prior to the current year). For 2018, it means reading any book that was published in 2017 or earlier. You have the entire year to read as many books as you can/want. YOU set your own reading goal and this challenge isn’t just for bloggers. You do NOT need to have a blog to participate. Any online social media account (Goodreads, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) will work, and if you have a blog you’re welcome to join in too!

Now to add a bit of a competitive edge, when you sign up for the challenge you’ll be randomly placed on a team. These teams will compete to see who can get the most points, and each month one winner will be drawn from the team with the most points to get a book of their choice (open internationally). You get points by reading books! And you can earn extra by posting a review to retail websites (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc).

Each team will have their own Rafflecopter that you can submit your points through so it’s super easy, and you’ll be able to see which team is in the lead too. You don’t have to submit anything if you don’t want to, but it will help your team and better YOUR chances of winning a book of your choice so you may find it’s worth it!

Really can’t wait to get started on this one.
Will give me plenty of excuses to read all those back titles I’ve¬†been salivating over for a while.
And also give me a much-needed kick in the backside forcing me to get my butt into gear.

¬†So Here’s My List

These are the ones I definitely want to get round to all else will be an added bonus.
