Announcement Post and TBR for #StartOnYourShelfathon

I’m joining a readathon to help tackle my immense backlist. “#StartOnYourShelfathon is a 2020 star-themed readathon hosted and run by CW from The Quiet Pond. The aim of #StartOnYourShelfathon is to read as many unread books on your bookshelf as you can between December 13th 2019 and December 31st 2020.” You can learn more about the readathon here.

I have a majority of my books locked away in a storage unit, so I’m restricting my TBR for this challenge to physical books I have on hand and books on my Kindle, which is still a pretty hefty number. For the purpose of this readathon, I won’t include eARCs that have been on my Kindle forever (my NetGalley feedback ratio is a tragic 38%), but I will be working on getting through those on the side. Here’s my TBR (not in the order I’m planning to read them in, just numbered so I know how many books there are on the list):
