Signing Up for the 2017 Beat the Backlist Challenge!!!

This challenge is exactly what my bookish little heart has been looking for. For 2016 my goal was to read 100 books. I’m at 122 now *queue the applause*, and I’ve been wanting to do something a little different for next year. So when I read about Beat the Backlist Challenge hosted by Austine at Novel Knight, I knew I’d found what I was looking for!

This BRILLIANT challenge is designed to help readers get caught up on those TBR piles. That’s certainly something I could use a little help with, and I’m so excited to participate. So without further ado, here are…


 In 2017 I’m going to read ONE HUNDRED FIFTY books, fifty of which will be books published from previous years that are currently collecting dust on my TBR pile. Time to brush these lovelies off!
