2019 Rewind Challenge

I saw this challenge over on Books Bones and Buffy.  Tammy has come up with this idea to try and catch up, during the second half of the year, with some of the books that have passed by unread and are now sitting waiting patiently on the tbr.  We all know how easily this happens and once it does those books seem to get forgotten in the relentless pursuit of the new shiny releases.  I really like this idea and decided I want to join the challenge.  There’s still almost half a year and so if I choose six of the books that I’ve already undertaken to read and put them on my challenge then I’m hoping it will keep me on track.

So, here are the books I’ve chosen, I’ve gone for a combination of books requested from Netgalley, purchases and a couple of books from authors who were gracious enough to offer me the second books in their series:

Two books from authors – with deep apologies for not yet having picked these up:

Two books fairly recently purchased – I am determined to strike a balance between review books and those I buy:

And finally, two Netgalley books that I was really excited to be approved for but kind of lost the plot with my scheduling and simply couldn’t fit them in:

    I’m so glad you’re joining in, Lynn! Looks like some good books ahead. Plus I like the way you included different types of books: review, non review, etc.

      Yeah, I want to address a few issues – well, need to address them more than want to so hoping this challenge will be just the ticket.

    I loved The Witch Who Courted Death! You should definitely pick it up as soon as you can! xo

    Good luck, I think we’ll all need it, lol! I’m doing this and trying to hit up some of early 2019’s releases as well…gotta get those NG stats up again 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      My NG stats never rise about 75/76 – it’s the early days when I was like a child in a sweetie shop. Plus, I never anticipated anybody approving my requests!

    Good luck, Lynn! I’m planning on catching up on some back list books myself after my 20 books of summer challenge is over, so it won’t be until September. It’s going to be tough because there are so many great books coming out in the fall too!

      We’re doomed. Doomed I tell you. LOL. What a great way to be doomed though – cursed by books.
