30 Books in 2020

1.6.2020 • 2 Comments

Ok, friends!! Here it is! A list of 30 books to read in 2020! You’ve likely heard me say it, but researching which books to read and adding them to my list is a close second to actually reading. 

I’ve heard from so many of you how much you look forward to this list so I intentionally try to include things that may not yet be on your radar. All that to say, I’ve got an infinity of books I COULD add (I’ve already included more than 30) but don’t want to overwhelm you with a bunch you already know! Several of these aren’t even out yet so get excited for 2020’s books! 

Here’s my list! (You can find all the links to these books right here in my Amazon storefront.)

Love this list! Your recap of what you read in 2019 in part inspired my 2020 reading list (something I’ve never done before!). Here it is, if you’d like to see 🙂

I enjoy reading what I call “famous fiction”. I didn’t become an avid reader till adulthood, so I haven’t read many classics. It makes me feel lost when someone references an often read classic. For example, I’m currently finishing Jane Eyre. As my daughters get older and begin to read classic books, I love to read alongside them. This year we will read The Chronicles of Narnia. In the past I’ve read lots of Roald Dahl with them. I hope that gives you some ideas!
