2021 Reading Challenge

pick a name

In 2021, I hope to take part in the Beat the Backlist Challenge, hosted by Novel Knight. I hope to work my way through my favourite urban fantasy books as it has been a long while since I read them and there has been a gap between the publication of some of the series (The Dresden Files being a notable one) and I want to refresh my memory of them before I go on to reading the new book(s). I also don't buy books much any more because I hit a slump in finding ones which I liked - there was a time when it was rare that I found a book which I didn't like, but there was a time when almost every new book I picked up I didn't like because the writing was bad. I think it's safer to keep to reading books, or at least authors which I know that I enjoy. It's a shame, though, since before I encountered this problem, I enjoyed picking new authors to read. I am currently re-reading the Dresden Files and I am currently on Dead Beat. As the challenge officially starts in the new year, I am going to count the next book in the Dresden Files as part of it.
