January TBR (and 2018 Reading Goal!)

Happy New Year everyone! I can't believe it's 2018! In addition to being New Year's Day, yesterday was also my 28th birthday! I wanted to jump right in this year with my January TBR. For the new year, I really want to put a little more focus on backlist books (since I have so many!) than I have been, so you're going to see a lot more of those popping up in reviews and TBRs this year. In 2017 I wanted to read 52 books, one for each week, but I definitely surpassed that. I don't want to overestimate my potential for the year so I'm going to bump up my goal just slightly. This year I'd like to read 60 books, putting me at 5 per month. I also want to make sure that at least 25 of those are backlist books.

Without further ado, here are the books I'm hoping to get to in the first month of 2018:
  • The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver
  • Dreamology by Lucy Keating
  • Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco
  • Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella
  • Mister Tender's Girl by Carter Wilson
This list is mostly backlist reads that I should be able to get through quickly. As always my TBR can change at a moment's notice, but hopefully I'll be better sticking to them this year than I was last year!

Great TBR. I really want to read Hunting Price Dracula as well as Stalking Jack the Ripper. They both sound great. Good luck with your reading.

Great list! I'll admit I haven't read any of these, but I'll be sure to look them up.

I have a huge backlog on netgallery that I need to clean up as my percentage is embarrassingly low - I am on a mission to bring it up significantly

I'm doing the Beat The Backlist Challenge this year as mine is far too big. Good luck with your reading. Sounds like you have some good ones there. I LOVE Sophie Kinsella!

Katharine McGee is the only one I have read before, but these all sound great. Looks like a productive January. Good luck and Happy Reading.

Happy Birthday. Good goals. With that many books on my TBR list I think this year maybe mostly backlist books.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver is a fantastic one! I love that your reading goals are realistic and obtainable. I'm already regretting mine haha

Love Delirium can't wait to hear what you think of it

I have a similar backlist goal, and I want to read all the Star Trek TNG books haha. I normally hit about 100 books a year (two short 2017) and there are 145+ in the series. fingers crossed.
