Wrap-Up for Backlist Reading Challenge

Backlist Reading Challenge was hosted here

I have far more books than I really should, but I just can't help myself. I usually do a TBR challenge every year, but my usual host stopped doing it, and I saw this one, so decided to try this.
It's a bit different in that you read books published before 2019 that have been on your TBR list for a long time, but you don't have to own them. I mostly chose books that I already owned but haven't read (list here), but liked the ability to choose from the ones I've want to read for a while, but don't own (list here). Both of these lists are from my Goodreads page and that shows the date I added them to my list, so I didn't choose anything I added to the list after 2018.
I also liked that I didn't HAVE to pick them in advance, but could go with the flow of what I felt like reading.
There weren't any designated levels, but I was happy to get these 19 books crossed off my list
