📚Bobo’s Beat the Backlist 2018! A New Reading Challenge To Conquer My TBR!📚


Hey y’all! So about a week ago, the very sweet Caro over at CJRTHEBRIT Blog posted this challenge (which she found at  NOVELKNIGHT.COM !) and since I have realized that I have OVER 300 books on my TBR list (I stopped counting at 300), I thought this would be a fun, easy challenge! Here’s a little bit about it:

“What is Beat the Backlist?

In short, this is a reading challenge where your goal is to read backlist books (published prior to the current year). For 2018, it means reading any book that was published in 2017 or earlier. You have the entire year to read as many books as you can/want. YOU set your own reading goal and this challenge isn’t just for bloggers. You do NOT need to have a blog to participateAny online social media account (Goodreads, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) will work, and if you have a blog you’re welcome to join in too!

Now to add a bit of a competitive edge, when you sign up for the challenge you’ll be randomly placed on a team. These teams will compete to see who can get the most points, and each month one winner will be drawn from the team with the most points to get a book of their choice (open internationally). You get points by reading books! And you can earn extra by posting a review to retail websites (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc).

Each team will have their own Rafflecopter that you can submit your points through so it’s super easy, and you’ll be able to see which team is in the lead too. You don’t have to submit anything if you don’t want to, but it will help your team and better YOUR chances of winning a book of your choice so you may find it’s worth it!


Check out the official challenge page. If your question hasn’t been answered on there, you can submit it through the form at the bottom of that page!”

Sounds pretty groovy, right? Maybe I can get some kind of control over my TBR list, but then again….




Here’s my list of books, which you can find on Amazon here: Bobo’s Beat the Backlist 2018!
