Hey guys! I figured that now that we’re into February, and I have finally written all of my reviews for most of my January books, I thought it would be a good idea to do a small wrap up.
So, in January, I started my Beat the Backlist 2018 challenge. I had a certain series in mind when I started in January because I’ve been wanting to reread this series for a LONG time. It was the Study series by Maria V. Snyder that starts with Poison Study and ends with Dawn Study. It was much longer than I remembered, and there was a trilogy in between the original trilogy and the ending trilogy called the Glass series. This was an excellent series, I loved Maria’s writing, and I loved getting to know Yelena and Valek, and watching them grow and mature as characters.
The majority of the books read in January were books from my Beat the Backlist 2018 shelf on Goodreads. I did read a few books that weren’t on my Backlist shelf, which were The Speaker, Binge Until Tragedy, and The Martian. I had been wanting to read The Speaker as soon as it came out, but I had no time during the holidays last year, so I read it this month, and I love listening to The Martian, which is one of my favorite audiobooks, so I listened to that as I worked out and drove around town doing errands.
Overall, I read 17 books over the course of 31 days, and two of them were audiobooks. I’m also 7 books ahead of my Goodreads challenge. Now here’s to February, where I hopefully keep up with my reading and my Beat the Backlist challenge.
How is your guys Beat the Backlist challenge going? Are you ahead? Are you reading the books you want to read? What books are you reading for that challenge? Comment below and let me know!
