Beat the Backlist 2018: February

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. 

Seeing how it's already a few days into February, let's hop to it (and slide into that first place slot!) What books are you planning on reading this month for the Backlist challenge? Let me know in the comments below!
