This week’s Top Ten topic, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is about backlist books I want to read. What’s a backlist book? The term refers to books that are older but still in print. I like this topic because I think it’s always good to keep an eye on the older books on your TBR list. So for my list, I took my Goodreads TBR list, sorted it by publication date, and looked at books published in 2015 or earlier.
Most of these are award winners, highly rated by readers, and are writers I want to read more of. A number of these books will probably make up my TBR Pile Challenge list for 2019, since most are books I’ve been wanting to read for a while. There’s a lot of science fiction, fantasy, and magical realism on this list
That’s my list! Which of these have you read, and if so, what do you recommend?
Just out of curiosity, I took the books on my TBR list published in 2015 or older and went only by ratings on Goodreads (and I took off series books because GR readers always rate those more highly), I would add these books to my list:
Looks like I’ve got a pretty good reading list for 2019! What do you think? What backlist books are you considering?
