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 in 2017 so I should able to read a good amount of books from my tbr this year as well as reading others. I’m thinking maybe I’ll read 20 from my actual tbr as the whole idea is to shorten that and then I can read other books too.
Here’s my list so far, it’s very much a work in progress. I am not reading them in any order but once they’re read I will move them to the top of the list and cross them out. I will add to it when I’ve found more books.
Uncommon type by Tom Hanks( ninja book swap) Thin Air by Michelle Paver ( recent/first book fairy) Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (reread, readalong) Affinity by Sarah Waters (actual tbr book!) Good Wives by Sarah Waters (reread, readalong) Raven Black by Anne Cleeves tbr Hollow City by Ransom Riggs tbr The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (felt like it) Dead Of Winter by Geri Brightwell (Ninjabookbox) Anne of Green Gables (not a tbr but a read along)
