Backl15t Blitz Readathon! // Getting Through All Those Pesky 2015 Releases!!

backlist blitz t2

So the other day on TTT (Ten 2015 Releases You Meant To Get To But Never Did) Prima from Panda Hearts Books mentioned that we she wants to do “a readathon to send off 2015 properly” Which Of Course I pounced on straight away!! A READATHON WHERE WE ONLY READ BOOKS WE OWN THAT WERE PUBLISHED IN 2015!! Like, hells yeah! I can’t even count how many times I needed a book last year, brought it, then let it sit on my shelf! We messaged for a while and Backl15t Blitz was born!!!


The Backl15t Blitz read-a-thon is organised by Prima @ Panda Hearts Books and Amy @ Book Enthral it is a 10 day low pressure read-a-thon running from Thursday, January 21st to Sunday, January 31st in whatever timezone you are in. The goal is to read as many books you own, that were published in 2015, as you can in 10 days!

Prima and I would LOVE if you joined in! If you wanted to join in with us just make sure to post the graphic and paragraph in your post and link back to either mine or Prima’s announcement post! We will both be doing daily update posts to keep track of our progress. Feel free to do the same if you want!


So I found all the unread books on my shelf that were published in 2015 and there are way less then I was expecting!!! I was thinking I had like 30! But NOPE I have a grand total of…. 12 books!!!


I can totally do 12 books!!! (OKAY, no I can’t! – But I can definitely make a decent dent into 12 books!!!). There is a grand total of 4,228 pages here!

Backl15t Blizt Goals!

  • To read a minimum of 7 books! – Some of those books are reasonably short!! I can totally do 7 books in 10 days!
  • Read a minimum of 2500 pages!! – That sounds like SOO MUCH to me! But really that’s just like 6ish 350 books!!
  • Post a progress post everyday! – totally doable, totally going to happen!
  • Have so much effing fun!!

I hope you decide to join in!! What a fun way to dwindle that pesky 2015 release pile!! Who knows, me and Prima might decide to make this an annual thing 😉 !

    THIS SOUNDS AMAZING. I might partake in this, but only for the last 5 days, since I’m doing RYBSAT too from the 19th – 26th. :3 This is a great idea. I hope you get to read all you want to read. ❤

        It’s the ‘Read Your Bookshelf-athon.’ It’s basically when you pick a spot on your bookshelf, and start reading all the books from that spot onwards, and read as many as you can for a week. 🙂 x
