2017 Beat The Backlist: Official Update Post

btbchallengeslider

The 2017 Beat The Backlist challenge is hosted over at Novelknight AND also includes a Harry Potter themed mini challenge. Of course I have joined that one as well, proudly trying to win the Hogwarts House Cup along with my fellow Ravenclaws. GO RAVENCLAW!!!

Find my sign up post here and my TBR here.

My challenge name is OakSickle.

 This post will be my official update post where I will keep track of the books I’ve read that qualify for the challenge. Remember my goals?

  • read 50 books published before 2016
  • read 20 books published before 2013
  • review each book 
  • update challenge post monthly

Since the challenge includes books published in 2016, I will add these in yellow to the list below for extra Ravenclaw points. 😉 Books that fit in with my personal challenge are either green for books published in 2015, 2014 or 2013 or orange for books published before that. Only books that have a link to the review have already been added to the official challenge page for points.
