Beat the Backlist – 2019

I’ve seen other years and thought it would be a great way to hold myself responsible for reading more books on my backlist. There are so many books from last year that I have wanted to read, but never got a chance to because of all of my ARCs. My goal is 20 books. Hopefully, this will help me get to those books that I’ve been wanting to read for a while now!
