Beat The Backlist 2018

I heard about this through Cassie Winters and I’m doing this challenge next year. I have so many books on my tbr and it never gets smaller. This challenge was started by NovelKnight  and the rule is that you can only read books published prior to 2018.

I’ve compiled a list of books but I only read what I’m in the mood to read so it’s not a rigid plan more of a guideline really. (I’m imagining Captain Barbossa as I write those words)

I’ve read quite a lot of books this year so I should able to read a good amount of  books from my tbr this year as well as reading others, maybe another challenge. I’m thinking maybe I’ll read 20 and that gives me about 10 outside the challenge or off this list I could read.

Here’s my list so far, it’s very much a work in progress:

  1. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
  2. Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
  3. Eragon by Christopher
  4. Uncommon type by Tom Hanks
  5. Three quarters of the orange by Joanne Harris
  6. Master of Shadows by Neil Oliver
  7. Assasins’ Apprentice by Robin Hobb
  8. Solar Bones by Mike McCormack
  9. The Fry Chronicles
  10. The Black Moon by Winston Graham
  11. Morganville series next books when I figure out which ones I’ve read (2)
  12. A Dance of dragons 2: After the Feast by George R. R. Martin
  13. Raven Black by Anne Cleeves
  14. Ink Death by Cornelia Funke
  15. The Raven’s Head by Karen Maitland
  16. A Parrot In A Pepper Tree by Chris Stewart (ebook)
  17. Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
  18. Dickens
  19. The Chisellers, The Granny by Brendan O’Carroll (2 ebooks)
  20. Affinity by Sarah Waters
  21. Shirley by Charlotte Bronte? Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy?
  22. The Last Runaway by Tracey Chevalier
  23. The Brontes (non fiction)
  24. That Elusive Something by Sam Kates
  25. Secret Santa book
  26. and other books

I have these Dickens books: David Copperfield, Bleak House, Nicholas Nickleby, The Old Curiosty Shop (ebook).

So there we go. Looking forward to it, I just need to convince myself to read them in 2018 now because I always find something else I want to read more.

I’ve signed up and I’m in the Dewey Dragons group!

  1. Glad to have you on the same team as me! Love your list of books! I have read “Mrs. Dalloway” previously. It was a bit boring to me, but I understood why it is considered a classic. Eragon is book I own that I hope to get to this next year as well. Look forward to seeing your posts on this challenge and to us destroying the competition hehe 🙂 (if you are competitive at all that is lol)
