Beat the Backlist

I would like to start this post with a huge shout out to ReadingWithJessica for giving me the idea to take part in this reading challenge for 2018 – go & check her blog out!
Generally, I don’t take part in reading challenges, apart from my GoodReads yearly reading goal, but as I own a lot of books (361 to be exact) that I haven’t yet read, this challenge is definitely something I want to give a try!
Jessica has set herself 12 books to read next year, one for each month, & I was initially going to do this as well, but then I realised that I wanted to include books from my shelves & from my kindle… so, instead I have picked 10 books from my shelves & 10 from my kindle; this means I have 20 books to read in 12 months which I know is something that I can achieve – I decided not to have 2 set for every month (1 from my shelves & 1 from my kindle) as I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself.
Keep reading to find out what they are!

I think my choices are quite varied in terms of genre so I’m definitely pleased with what I’ve chosen! There are some books I’m more excited about than others but hopefully they’ll all be enjoyable reads – when I get round to them! Are you setting yourself any goals for the books you read in 2018? Let me know in the comments.
