2019 Beat the Backlist Challenge

This page will keep track of every backlist book I read in 2019 for the Beat the Backlist Challenge  sponsored by NovelKnight.  Goal: to read books published before 2019.  I get easily distracted by new titles, accumulate them, then don't read them all. They end up on my bookcases and stacked on my floors. This is my challenge to myself to clear the backlist piles and rediscover books I wanted to read but either forgot about them or just simply didn't get to them.

Goal: Read 50 titles from my backlist bookshelves...

1.  My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
2.  Flowers and Foul Play by Amanda Flower
3.  When She Woke  by Hillary Jordan
4.  Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
5.  How to Bake a Perfect Life by Barbara O'Neal
6.  Ghost by Jason Reynolds
7.  The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
8.  Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut
9.  The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
10.  The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
11.  Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse
12.  Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
13.  Dead Set by Richard Kadrey
14.  Closed for the Season (audio book) by Mary Downing Hahn
15.  My Morning Routine by Benjamin Spall and Michael Xander


  1. I'm with you on being easily distracted. New releases are just so. . . NEW! But here's to clearing some of the backlist in 2019! Thanks for signing up for BTB!

    1. I'm so excited to make a conscious effort to clear out the backlist at my house. This will be an excellent way to work on it and keep track.
