Top Ten Tuesday – Backlist Book Beauties I Want to Read in 2019


Hello Lovely Book Readers and Happy Top Ten Tuesday! It’s been FOREVER since I’ve participated in TTT so I’m really excited to be back on it. This week’s topic is about Backlist Books.

Okay, so I wasn’t sure how to go about this since I have a gazillion books that’s been sitting on my shelves.  When I was on my hiatus, I organized and started cataloging my books… It shouldn’t have surprised me, but oh ma damnnnn… I’m not even done and I’ve already counted 300 + books that I HAVE NOT READ!! Like how do I even pick 10?!?!

So, for this week’s topic, I decided to pick 10 Backlist Books from different genres (Adult/New Adult Romance, YA Romance/Contemporary, YA Fantasy, and YA Paranormal/Supernatural) that I want to read in 2019.

Top Ten Tuesday, was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and has been moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January 16, 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


Without further ado, here are my picks for the














Have you read any of these? What did you think? Which ones are MUST READS for you? What other backlist books should I check out?

Leave a comment and let’s chat down below.



Tackling My Netgalley TBR – April to Mid May 2018 Update


Hello fellow booknerds! It’s time for another update! I know it’s the middle of the month and I’m way behind posting this, but I still wanted to share my progress. I need to see where I am and hopefully be motivated to pick up more of these ARCs rather than being distracted by all the other books I keep on requesting.  As you can clearly see, I haven’t made that much progress, BUTTTTT my FEEDBACK ratio is finally at 50% and I’ve finally reached 51 reviews submitted which means that I earned another badge — The 50 Reviews! So while I’m still pretty behind, I’m quite proud of myself.

I updated the list on 4.16.2018 cause I was getting a bit confused. I also took this out of the MISC category and moved it to Netgalley ARCs so I can keep track of my progress better and you can check out where I started. So, how about we go see how many more books I was able to check off since 4.16.

So, it looks like I added more on the list, but I’ve read more than 50 out of 100 plus books requested since I joined Netgalley. Making progress a little at a time. One of these days, I’ll get to that 85% feedback ratio. Until then, I’ll take it one day at a time and not force myself to read just so I can knock off as many of these ARCs before the end of the year. I obviously have a responsibility to read them since I requested, but I find it more enjoyable to read the books I’m actually in the mood for. And most of the times, I request when I’m really interested, but won’t get approved until a few weeks later so that kind of messes up my schedule when I’m already reading/reviewing something else.

Anyway, that pretty much ends my update. I’ll definitely do another one for the second half of May and hopefully I can check off 3-5 more books.

Oh and here’s my newest badge!!!
