As you can see I went a bit off list and so have multiples for the same letters, and still have spaces to fill. 

I might not have completed either reading challenge, but I did read a lot of good books in 2018. 

As an author, doing this challenge also made me think a lot about book titles. Seriously some letters are hard to find books for! 

Did you take part in a reading challenge this year? How did you do?

  1. Great list! I always found X a hard one to find books to read for.

    1. I agree X is a hard one. Some letters are definitely more difficult to find books for.

  2. I was going to do the 2019 one, but I get worried I won't finish it.

    1. It was a fun challenge even if I didn't manage to read a book for each letter. I might try again this year.

  3. I had lots of multiples for several letters. Finding A to Z titles is hard!

    1. I did. I really enjoyed most of the books I read in 2018. I'm definitely getting better at selecting books to suit my tastes.😊

  5. great list! you did quite good on both in the end!
    I failed miserably at the beat the backlist in 2018, but I'm determined to succeed in it this year.
    There's an A to Z challenge in my bookish planner and I'm hoping to finish it as well and combine it with the Goodreads one and Beat the Backlist.

  7. You still did far better than we did this year! What a list of books you've read :) I'm adding quite a few of the kidlit ones to our TBR for the little ones to read.

    1. I was pleased with the amount of books I read, and even happier that they were mostly really good reads. Might give it a try again this year.

    1. Thanks. It was harder to keep up with the challenges than I thought it would be.
