Beat The Backlist Challenge

Beat the Backlist is a challenge created by the amazing blogger Novelknight and it consists on picking up books that have been on your tbr for a while and have been pushed aside by new releases.


  • It will run from January 1st to December 31st 2017
  • Books must be published before 2017

If you feel like it use the tag #beatthebacklist

My Tbr for this challenge is this:

P.S.: I have no idea what the goal for next year will be (maybe 50?) and I also have most first books in a series because I don't know if I will like them or not so I didn't had the entire series to the list.

  • Books 2 - 3.5 from the Splintered Series by A.G. Howard
  • The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

Also if you are a Harry Potter fan there's also this mini challenge within the Beat The Backlist challenge.

I'm a slytherin by the way, and I do enjoy a little competition. Check NovelKnight's page for more information on this mini challenge.

At the end of each month (starting in January) I will be posting about my progress with this challenge, and I will most certainly add/subtract books during the year.

So Happy Readings everyone!
