2019 Beat the Backlist Challenge

So my TBR pile is huge. Massive. Large.

Let’s beat it!

Beat the Backlist 2019 Challenge

My To Be Read pile has been carefully cultivated over the years, and I pared it down just so it wasn’t like 500 books… just 75. I knocked off a lot of classics that I know I should read but really don’t want to, as well as some books that I just didn’t have any interest in anymore.

AtoZ Reading Challenge Sign Up

Challenge can be found here.

So the idea behind this challenge is to read one book for every letter of the alphabet. I like it though, because you can participate with any one letter or with all twenty-six.

That said, I’m shooting for 26 books read. I wanted to read them in order from a to z but honestly I think that will be a little too hard and I do want to still enjoy this!

So this is it, my sign up – here I come 2019!

2019 Discussion Challenge Sign Up

I am excited to sign up for and participate in the 2019 Discussion Challenge hosted by Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight!

As a new book blogger, I am a little overwhelmed by all of the things available to me to do, so I’m narrowing it down to what I want to do. And I want to post more discussions like “Let’s Talk Longmire” and “Letting Go of the Guilt” so I thought this would be the perfect one for me. I’m going to go for the gold here and that I wholly intend to be Terrifically Talkative with 35 posts at least.

I am currently working on a 2019 Challenge page that you’ll see here pretty soon as I figure out what I’m doing for the challenges and such. So definitely keep an eye out for that!
