Backlist Blast

backlist blast

This weekly meme was created by Milana @A Couple Reads and Flavia @Flavia the Bibliphile to feature and discuss backlist books (books that were published six months ago or earlier) that are on your TBR and you have yet to read. Another purpose is for readers to find out about awesome backlist books that they might have never heard of before! For more information on the meme, and for optional themes, please see the info page here.

Note: They have created banners which you can find on their blogs to use for this meme, but I have created my own. Feel free to use the ones they created, mine, or create your own!

Make sure to tag the original creators (see above) and comment on their Backlist Blast posts to let them know you’re participating! Continue reading
