Beat the Backlist 2018: February
There goes January. Ugh, Story Sorcerers, we were so close!
Novel Knights defeated us by such a small margin. Even though we didn’t win this month’s competition, great work, everyone!
I was able to read eight books for the Backlist challenge. It’s not near as much as I was hoping for, but I had a busy ARC month. So, I must also be realistic in my expectations.
I was able to contribute 51 points to this month’s challenge. I know that is minuscule to the amount some folks put forth. But, I’m glad I could offer some assistance.
I'm only human.
I should be saying, “Hey, I was able to accomplish a few things this past month!’ and be happy with that. So, that’s what I shall do.
My Completed Backlist reads for January:
I know–I didn’t even get to read my main pledged read, War Horse by Michael Morpourgo. It’s next on my nightstand. I’ve nearly finished Finding Jane by Mary Jennifer Payne, and have a ways to go on Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth…
…Onto my planned reads for this month…
Since I’m already in a hole from January, why not plan some more reads I may not finish? Kidding. I shall finish these. Sometime.
This month, I’m pledging to read The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury, listed in my original Backlist post.
Like last month, I’ll also pre-plan four more books to complete and get off my TBR! (I plan to read more than just these five books, but I like to keep my options open a bit throughout the month.) Dragons of Dark by Ava Richardson was the first approved galley I received on Netgalley almost a year ago. It’s time to get this DONE! In order to do so, I need to read the second book in the series, Dragons of Kings first.
Another old ARC I’ve had sitting around for a while is The Fallen Kingdom by Elizabeth May. Yet again, I need to finish it’s predecessor The Vanishing Throne before I can get to it. Alas, I plan to finish two started, and unfinished series this month.
