If you’re like me (and I’ll bet you are if you’re reading this), a new book comes out or you see a book in a book sale, and you think, ‘OMG, I MUST HAVE THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW’…
…and then those books sit on your TBR pile(s) for months. Or years.
There are SO MANY BOOKS and there is so little time (in my case, at least). My intention is always to read that must-have book right away. IT WILL BE THE NEXT BOOK I READ, I vow. Heh.
Well. My TBR pile spans whole bookcases and sits in multiple stacks on the floor in my home library.
But @jetwithjess on IG has started a #20For20Books “challenge” in which the goal is to pick 20 books from your TBR pile that you will finally read in 2020. It’s super chill — if you read all 20, that’s great…if you don’t, oh well. Better luck next year! Hahaha!
I read 73 books in 2019. I will have the summer of 2020 off in between undergrad and grad school. I can easily get to the 20 books I’ve chosen for this. They are:
- The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey
- Finders Keepers by Stephen King
- End of Watch by Stephen King
- Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King
- Watchmen by Alan Moore
- Redshirts by John Scalzi
- On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong
- Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
- The Little Friend by Donna Tartt
- Lethal White by Robert Galbraith
- Strange Weather by Joe Hill
- A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson
- The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro
- Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
- The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
- Sag Harbor by Colson Whitehead
- Stardust by Neil Gaiman
- You by Caroline Kepnes

I’ll be providing updates on my progress both here and on IG. I can do this, y’all.
What are some books on your TBR pile(s) that you’ve been meaning to get to? Will you be reading any of them this year?
