Beat the Backlist 2017


This challenge is being hosted by NovelKnight, and is a great way to tackle your TBR pile. As motivation to reach your own personal goals for the challenge, there will be Readathon Weekends, Twitter chats, and Instagram challenges, so there really is something here for everyone. To see the list of books I’ll be attempting to read in 2017 for this challenge, go to my Goodreads here. I’m also giving myself the added incentive of giving these books away if I don’t finish them by the end of 2017. For more information, please click here.

Hogwarts Mini Challenge


This is a bonus challenge for the Beat the Backlist Challenge above, also by NovelKnight, where you can log your activity for reading, reviewing, cross-posting, and other participation activities in exchange for house points. The house points are tallied monthly, which gives a nice incentive to keep going! Go Slytherin! More information here.
