Those of you who have scrolled through my Home page lately, may have noticed that I have added a reading challenge section at the bottom. I participated in the Goodreads reading challenge last year and did really well (75 out of 60! whut?!), so I decided to participate in a few more this year, and see how I do! One of these reading challenges is Beat the Backlist which is being hosted by the lovely Novel Knight!
The main idea behind this reading challenge, is to read some of those books which have been sitting in our TBR piles for far too long! I personally have shelves, not piles, of TBR books. So this challenge will be fantastic for motivating me to get through some of those books, and eliminate some of my TBR guilt, haha. I have also added the TBR books which I plan to read in 2017 in their own section in my bujo (bullet journal), so this should go pretty well (I hope).
The goal which I have set for this particular challenge is 20 books, and the books which I absolutely (have to) plan to read for this 2017 challenge are:
1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
2. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
4. Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
5. A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab
6. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
7. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
8. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
9. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
10. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
11. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
12. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
13. The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
14. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
15. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
16. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
17. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Screenplay)
18. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
19. Cress by Marissa Meyer
20. Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
21. Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige
22. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
23. The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon
