Beat the Backlist TBR!

Hi all!

In 2019, I am going to be joining in with NovelKnight’s Beat the Backlist challenge! What is this, you ask? This is a challenge that takes place every year to push readers to pick up backlist books (aka books not published in 2019). Any book published pre-2019 earns you points for your team!

As much as I want to stay on top of the latest releases, I also want to read many of the books that are already on my TBR, which makes this challenge perfect for me! I will, of course, be reading for Team Ravenclaw!

I’ve created a tentative TBR of some books I want to pick up for the 2019 challenge. I’m not bound to this, but I’m hoping that I’ll get to most, if not all of these in the coming year!

  • Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
  • Bygone Badass Broads by Mackenzi Lee
  • The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin
  • If I Loved You Less by Tamsen Parker
  • The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman
  • The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
  • Shadows of Self by Brandon Sanderson
  • The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson
  • The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
  • A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
  • The Circle by Mats Strandberg
  • The Secret History by Donna Tartt
  • Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne
  • The Reader by Traci Chee
  • Circe by Madeline Miller


Are you participating in the Beat the Backlist challenge? Which of these books should I aim to pick up first?
