Let’s Do This: Beat The Back List Challenge 2020


Hello everyone! It has been a bit since I have participated in a new reading challenge (other than The Classics Club Challenge which is ongoing), and I have decided to join NovelKnight‘s Beat The Backlist 2020 Challenge!  I have an insane number of books on my shelves that I have not read yet and it is time to make a dent in them.


The book must have been published in 2019 or earlier to count. It can be in any format (including an ARC/eARC) as long as the release date is 2019 or earlier (i.e. 2020 releases are not allowed).

You have to start and finish the book in 2020 to count it. Any books started in 2019 and finished in 2020 do not count. Any books started in 2020 and finished in 2021 also do not count.

The challenge runs from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020
(your local time)

Everything beyond these 3 rules is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL and designed just for fun so you can put in as much or as little as you want into this challenge.

I have also decided to join the TBR Stackers Team for the Team Mini Challenge to compete for points and will probably participate in the bingo because, why not?  It sounds fun to me!

I’m not going to make a specific TBR, because I am such a mood reader, but I will make a goal! Since my Goodreads Goal is 100 books, I am going to aim for half of those to be backlist books- hopefully as many from my own shelves.  I’ll add books here, and on the Beat The Backlist page, as I read them to keep track 🙂
