My first beat the backlist is under my belt, and honest I think I could have done much better.
Of my planned reads, I only managed 6 books. That is such a wimpy score! Thankfully my list doesn’t look too bad, because I fluffed it up with surprise choices from my backlist. Some of them were even my favorites!
So, here’s my final tally. As wimpy as it is, I’m still kind of proud.

Did you manage do knock out any reads on your backlist?
Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.
