My Backlisted Books!

So, I’ve already talked about this to some of you, but I am currently on a book buying ban, until I’ve made a dent in my pile of backlisted books. I don’t know how I have amassed so many, but I am a huge mood reader and it has become a problem. This isn’t me announcing that I will officially take part in the Beat the Backlist Challenge, but … I guess unofficially it’s almost as if I am. Anyway, I just wanted to show you what I’ll be working with the next months. I have already been able to tick off 5 books from my list and I made a deal with myself to wait until I have read half of my list before I buy new books. Without further ado, here are my backlisted books!

If you want to know more about the books, click on their respective cover and you’ll be redirected to Goodreads!

  1. Good luck with getting to all of these, Kat! I’ve only read King’s Cage and Everything Everything on your list here but I really enjoyed both of those books. In particular, King’s Cage was a step up from Glass Sword so I hope you like that one.
    Heartless is also still on my backlist. Praying I can get around to that one soon! 🙂

    • Thanks, Liam! I have high hopes for liking King’s Cage better than Glass Sword, because I was so disappointed in that book. I DID actually start Heartless once, but was not that into it. I hope I will like it better the second time around.

  2. Good luck with reading all these! I’ve only read Norse Mythology from your list and I found it really interesting. I’m actually doing something similar, where I’m not going to request or buy any more books until I have made a serious dent in my backlist books and unread arcs (most from early last year…).

    • I have to be honest and say that I tried Heartless once but put it away after a couple chapters, so that is not my priority right now but I’ve heard only good things about the others and am very excited to read them 🙂

  3. Okay, so as you know, you HAVE to read All The Boys, I loved this book so, so much and just want to hug it overall. That’s the general feeling I get when I think about it, cozy and hugs and COOKIES AND FOOD. I hope you’ll read that one veeeeeeery soon and that you will love it 🙂
    I will be waiting to hear your thoughts on King’s Cage… I don’t think I will go on with this series, but I can’t wait to hear if you enjoy it, or not. Same goes for Caraval, well I miiight go on with that one since I’m really curious, but for me, it was a bit… hyped too much somehow and I was disappointed, even if it was still GREAT.
    AND BEFORE I FALL READ THAT ONE RIGHT NOWWWWWWWWWWW. Sorry. Haha.
    Great post, as always! You’ll beat that TBR 😛 ❤ ❤

    • Hahaha everyone wants me to start with something else. I will take yours under advisement but I think I have an idea about the next three books I am actually gonna read. We will see! I am going to get to everything eventually 😂

  4. omg I thought you meant blacklisted for a good 5 minutes into reading this post and I was wondering why you would blacklist any of them until I read it again. 😂 I should get my eyes checked I guess??? Everything, Everything was AMAZE. I read the book and watched the movie, and trust me girl, you need to become obsessed with it like I am. ALSO to all the boys I’ve loved before is amazing I’m in the middle of it. Now I’m just forcing you to read books. XD

    • OMG hahahaha I can see how that easily could have been confused, I didn’t even think about how close those words were 😛
      Anyway, I will get to all the books eventually, so thanks for your enthusiasm for some of them!

  5. I really hope you manage to make it through all of these books Kat, some of these are on my to-read list for this year. I think the main one is Lord of Shadows because once the last book in that trilogy is released I plan to binge read all three (I’ve heard horrible things about the cliffhanger so I’m not starting it until all three books have been released!) Also I really enjoyed Caraval and Heartless, though I think there are some mixed reviews for both books, so I hope you’ll love them as well.
    Good luck with making your way though these books, and happy reading as well! 😀 ❤

    • Thanks Beth! I actually once started Heartless but then put it down again. I hope I will fair better on my second attempt, but it is not currently a top priority among the books.
      Uuuuh yeah, I heard about a cliffhanger for Lord of Shadows as well. Another confession, I actually read until like 27% on the ebook while I was abroad last year, but my mind was completely elsewhere. I hope I will manage to get it done until December when the finale comes out. That seems like a reasonable goal though.

  6. Ah I totally relate! I’m a massive mood reader too, so I do this a lot. I think this is a good plan! I especially liked to all the boys- hope you do too- it’s a really sweet book 🙂 And I liked Everything Everything (despite its faults) and before I fall. Curious about ship beyond time too. Great list!

  7. Ahhh yes, there are SO many backlist books waiting to be read! Because You Love to Hate Me and Heartless were good, but not *that* good? I loved the food in Heartless and some other things, but overall both books weren’t quite what I was expecting. I hope you enjoy them more though! And yes for Lord of Shadows!! I’ve been procrastinating on that book so much haha, hopefully we’ll both get around to it this year! 😊

    • I tried Heartless once and then stopped after a couple chapters because I felt it was very meh. I don’t know what happened with Lord of Shadows. I was all over Lady Midnight and then that book came out and I just … didn’t care as much anymore. Maybe my enthusiasm will come back with the final book in the trilogy??

      • Yeah, I didn’t dislike it, but it wasn’t great? Cath annoyed me quite a lot, but Jest (I think that’s his name) was kind of fun. I know!! I kept feeling like I *should* read LoS, but I never really felt like it? Hopefully it does!! 😊
