2019 Rewind Challenge
I saw this challenge created by Tammy at Books, Bones and Buffy the other day, and as someone who is perpetually finding amazing books to read and trying to make a better effort at catching up on releases, I knew I had to get in on this. Basically, the 2019 Rewind Challenge involves tackling the books you might have missed out on when they first came out, but that you are still determined and desperate to read, and the goal is to read them by the end of the year.
You can choose as many books as you’d like, but I’ve decided not to go nuts and try for six – one for each month until the end of the year isn’t too unreasonable, is it? Completely doable!
I literally have dozens of books I need/want/have to read, but these are some that are high on my priority list that I really should have gotten to a while ago. A few of these also have sequels coming out this summer, and of course that has lit a fire under me. As well, my NetGalley TBR is starting to get out of hand and I want to knock a couple off that pile to bring my stats back up a bit.
But wait! I also want to add a second part to this challenge as motivation to help me read some early 2019 books released in the first three months of the year that I’m still very passionate about, but for whatever reason I just haven’t gotten to them yet. I’m already planning to read these, but tying them to this challenge will be a good reminder not to neglect them and also to push me to get them read and reviewed before December 31, 2019.
I’m pretty confident I can do this, and I’ve already packed a few of these books to go on vacation with me this week because I’m excited to get started right away. What are your thoughts on mid-year challenges, and could your TBR benefit from some type of “Rewind” challenge?
