Believe me when I say I have a lot of unread books on my shelves. I’m guessing a lot of us book lovers will relate to that as well. I recently noticed I have quite a few new to me authors on my shelves that I own multiple books by. What’s a better way to work on my backlist and promote the authors by doing a monthly author spotlight. I’ll read one new to me author every month (all the books I own) and then decide if they’re going to be an author I add to my auto-buy authors now that I’ve read some of their books. Keep on reading to see which authors you’ll be seeing soon for these author spotlights!
Last week Candyce shared 12 series she wants to finish in 2021. We both have finishing series as a goal for this year so I figured I would make a list as well. There are some series where I just have one book left and it would be so easy to finish them. Let’s jump in! Continue reading “Bookish Item | More Series I Want to Finish in 2021”
Two weeks ago I talked about the 2021 Beat the Backlist Bingo and posted my possible TBR for the first half of the prompts (2021 Beat the Backlist Bingo Part 1). There are 52 prompts, so there was too much to put into one post. So today I’m back with part 2. Let’s take a look at the last 26 prompts for this book bingo.
Candyce and I decided we wanted to try the 52 prompt bingo by Beat the Backlist! Two weeks ago I shared my tentative TBR for the first 26 prompts. And today I’m back with the second half. Almost immediately I realised I should’ve looked at all the prompts at the same time because some of the books I used last time are actually perfect for this weeks prompts haha. However, I made something of it ;). So let’s take a look!

We’re at the beginning of December, so it’s time (for me at least) to start thinking about reading goals for next year. My backlist is one that has been on my reading goals list for the past few years and could still be a lot less than it is now. I’ve done better at reading backlist books though this year (even though only 19 of them were on my shelf before the beginning of the year).
I recently saw the announcement for Beat the Backlist Bingo 2021. There are options for a 24 or 52 prompt bingo. So two books a month or one a week. I’m going to be a bit ambitious and go for the 52 bingo. So here’s part 1 of my possible TBR of this bingo. Keep on reading to find out more!
Candyce and I started thinking about our reading goals for next year and came across the bingo from Beat the Backlist. We always try to read more and more of our backlist books and this year we want to try the Beat the Backlist Bingo. There are 2 options, one with 24 prompts and one with 52. I’m going to be super ambitious and try to do the bingo with 52 prompts. Candyce and I both wrote two posts with all the prompts and the books we think we’ll use for them. Officially you can use any book published before 2021 but I want to use only books I’ve gotten before 2021. Let’s jump in!

As you all have read before, we both want to tackle our TBR this year. We both have a good amount of books that need to be read and we want to lower that number as much as we can. Then we heard about Beat the Backlist organized by NovelKnight Book Reviews. Today we are talking about what it is and our goal for Beat the Backlist.
