Beat the Backlist TBR

In 2019 I am wanting to read through books I already own instead of continuously buying new ones! While I do have a lot I plan on getting I want to start reading older books that I own and get them off my TBR finally! I saw this on Instagram and thought it would be a fun challenge to motivate myself, so in 2019 I will be participating in the 2019 Beat the Backlist hosted by NovelKnight.

The rules are simple: the book must have been published in 2018 or earlier, and you have to start and finish it in 2019 for it to count. Head on over to NovelKnight to find out more information on how to join!

So on to my TBR for my 2019 Beat the Backlist:


Skyward : by Brandon Sanderson

A Reaper at the Gates : by Sabaa Tahir

A Gathering of Shadows : by V.E. Schwab

A Conjuring of Light : by V.E. Schwab

There are plenty more I can add to this list and probably will update it as I think of them but these are the major ones I really want to read. Ones I just found out about and ones that I’ve been putting off for ages for absolutely no reason! I hope for a successful year of catching up on my TBR!
