Reading Challenge

Beat the Backlist Challenge Update


Hi everyone!

It’s been a quiet week on Jo’s Book Blog as I’ve been on holiday.  Whilst I’ve not been blogging, I have at least been reading, and I’ve made a fairly significant dent in Novel Knight’s BTB Challenge!

The backlist titles I read on holiday were:

  • Thirst by Benjamin Warner
  • Snowblind by Ragnar Jonasson
  • The Sudden Appearance of Hope by Claire North
  • Tall Oaks by Chris Whitaker
  • 13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough

I also read The Trouble with Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon shortly before going away, which means that I’ve ticked six books off the backlist in the last month!

I probably won’t do full reviews for all of these titles, but I will try to do mini reviews at some point to share my thoughts on the books I read while I was away.

TBR Watch

And, my holiday means that I’ve actually managed to reduce my TBR a little!  And by a little, I mean four.  But I’ll take it!

TBR 1 May 17

I’m likely to undo this progress next month, however, as I’ll be going to the Hay Festival, and I fully intend to buy all the books while I’m there!
