Beat the Backlist April Update

So this month wasn’t so good for Beat the Backlist mostly because I didn’t have time to read between two plays and Camp NaNo and just other life stuff.  But here’s my (sad) update.

My goal for Beat The Backlist 2017: read and review 50 books from my To Be Read list; all ‘random’ grabs count but not towards the 50.

Read: 3 books, all published before 2017, all from my TBR (I’m counting Glitter & Mayhem since I grabbed it for a story that was on my TBR list)

Total: 22/50 (+1)

Well, it’s not half-way through the year yet and I’m inching towards the halfway mark of my goal, so go me.  But I still feel really down about how little reading happened this month.  Hopefully May will go better.

Here’s my Beat the Backlist update for March.

My goal for Beat The Backlist 2017: read and review 50 books from my To Be Read list; all ‘random’ grabs count but not towards the 50.

Read: Eight books (published before 2017), only one a random grab

Year’s Total: 19/50 (+1)

Good progress, I’d say.  Now if only I can keep it up with this month being Camp NaNo.

Beat The Backlist Update

I realize that I completely forgot to do one of these for January, so here is my combined January/February Beat The Backlist Update.

Please note, because BTB closes submissions before the end of the month, my ‘tallies’ are a bit off from what the official tallies would be.  But I am being careful to not include my March reads in this.

My goal for Beat The Backlist 2017: read and review 50 books from my To Be Read list; all ‘random’ grabs count but not towards the 50

January: Five books read, all from my TBR list
February: Seven books read (if you count the Tsubasa volumes as three separate books), all from my TBR

Total: 12/50 books

So far, not too shabby, but I’d really like to pick up the pace a bit since I’m participating in the mini-challenge, the Hogwarts House Cup, for the glory of Slytherin House, winners of the January Cup (but not, alas, the February one).

Good luck to everyone else participating!
