Beat the Backlist 2019 TBR

This is my first time participating in the Beat the Backlist reading challenge hosted by Austine @ Novel Knight!

I currently own way too many backlist books especially ones from 2018 that I didn’t get to in 2018 so I’m hoping this challenge will help me read them all. This probably isn’t a set-tbr since I’m a mood reader :/ But here goes nothing!
