2019 Reading Challenges

Every year I pick a few reading challenges to do and every year I generally fail at all of them. While I’m not expecting different results this year (that way I’m pleasantly surprised if I succeed), I’ve picked a few out that I want to try. This page will be updated with any new challenges as I find them and sign up!

GR Reading Progress


Beat the Backlist

Goal: 36/50 books

Official Challenge Page

Considering this is my own reading challenge, it would be odd not to participate!


  • Books must be published in 2018 or earlier.
  • Books must be read start-to-finish in the year 2019

I’ve posted my potential TBR list on the blog already but I’m hoping to read way more books than the 24 I picked out. Everything read for BTB will be added to the list below and I’ll update periodically with review links and whatnot.
