Messy Monday: TBR Edition 2024 Booknerd Backlist Reading Challenge

Messy Monday: 2024 Booknerd Backlist TBR Edition (+PDF)


Happy Monday! This is the post where we make a TBR for our 2024 Booknerd Backlist Reading Challenge and very likely throw the whole thing out the window. This upcoming year is going to be so much fun, with 24 book prompts to help sift through all the amazing books on our shelves! As usual, I’ve easily made a TBR for this challenge … will I stick to it? Eh, maybe, maybe not 🤷‍♀️

While you don’t need a TBR to join us for the 2024 Booknerd Backlist Reading Challenge, I always enjoy looking through my books to find ones that fit the prompts.

    Remaining Prompts to Fill

    I’ve filled almost all of my prompts with TBR books but there are a few left to fill. We will be hosting readathons this summer (to be announced closer to summer) and of course, who can predict storms? I’m still looking through my shelves for a Bookstagram favorite but haven’t decided on anything yet.

    1. A book you read during our Summer Readathons – TBD
    2. Read a book during a storm – TBD
    3. A Bookstagram or BookTok Fave – TBD
