My TBR for 2020

My TBR for 2020

 

A story of what my plans for reading are, in a time where plans aren’t plannable.

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been much into planning these last few months. There truly is no point; things change so quickly. The one thing I have enjoyed is making lists of books, anticipated, to be published, to read, will be read, and have read!

You are about to delve into a full list of the books I want to read in 2020. Some are new, some are old. Flip, I am excited to read these this year!

*Disclaimer: These are in no particular order.

 

There’s No Such Thing as an Easy Job by Kikuko Tsumura

I need to read more translated fiction by women. I missed the boat in August. This one seems like the epic start to my love for women writers in this area. I am keen to see where this one takes me.

Real Life by Brandon Taylor

One way to catch my attention is to compare a book to Hanya Yanigihara. Her writing is near perfection and a booker shortlist also helps the punt. I want to read this because I want a book to take me on a journey and I think this one will be that!

Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart

I have heard that this one is the one to read off the booker shortlist. I wish I had the time to work through the entire list. But it’s 2020 and you’ll all forgive.

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennet

I got left behind on the Bernadine Evaristo wagon, how I regret that. I don’t want to lose out on Brit Bennet. She is being praised and raved about. So how can this not be on the list.

 

The Challenge:

I love a good reading challenge. I have decided to set a challenge to read a book that I should have read ages ago and just haven’t. I plan to steal away in a coastal region and do nothing!

Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel

I just feel like starting an epic trilogy. Now that I know we have a full trilogy, I feel comfortable getting into this. Let’s do this Tudors!

* * * *

I set a realistic goal, I hope. I am so excited for each of these books that I have no doubt they won’t get moved out. I’d be keen to hear if you have read any of the above and what you thought – no spoilers!

You know where to find me on the socials. Give me a follow, comment below, share and care.

Happy Reading, all!
