Let’s forget about the fact that I still have to read five title on my 2019 list, and take a look at 2020… But first of all: Happy Holidays to all of you who celebrate!! I hope everyone has been having a wonderful time so far with the preparations. ❤ ❤ I have to be honest here and say it’s not my favorite season in the world and I still can’t get used to the whole Christmas in the middle of the summer thing even after nine years, but at least the food sort of makes up for it. 😉
With the year almost being over it’s not just time to think about all the books I did read, but also about all those books I wasn’t able to get to in 2019. I’ve decided to put together a list of 20 titles I will be giving a priority in the first months of 2020. I’m sure I will end up mixing it up with other titles as well and there are a ton more I also want to read, but I guess I’ll have to start somewhere right?
So what has been high on my radar, but I wasn’t able to read in 2019? Find out below…
# The Chestnut Man by Soren Sveistrup (528 pages). I’ve been meaning to read this for a while and it was actually a bookclub read too I wasn’t able to get to in time… I’m reading it in 2020 no matter what!
# Nevernight by Jay Kristoff (429 pages). I’ve been wanting to read this series ever since the first book came out in 2016, but somehow I never did… I guess the advantage is that I can now read all three books in a row?
# The One by John Marrs (416 pages). I’m a huge fan of his books, so I’m still not sure why I haven’t read this one yet.
# Triptych by Karin Slaughter (514 pages). I can’t believe I STILL haven’t met Will Trent yet! I have been wanting to read this series for years, and 2020 will be the year I (hopefully) catch up.
# The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce (297 pages). I’ve had this book on my TBR for years and I’m still not sure why I haven’t read it yet. I really want to read the sequel too…
# Good Samaritans by Will Carver (318 pages). I keep hearing his books are mindblowingly good and are basically unable to review, which is pretty scary to be honest. I hope I’m ready in 2020 though and I want to read his newest very soon as well!
# Force Of Nature by Jane Harper (421 pages). I really enjoyed The Dry earlier this year and I have been looking forward to read her other two titles ever since… I have physical copies of both, but somehow I never managed to actually pick them up. 2020 will change that!
# Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell (356 pages). I loved Carry On and I have been looking forward to the sequel, but I soon discovered I needed to reread the first book first because I had forgotten about a lot of details. I’m planning to do a reread and read the sequel in 2020.
# After The End by Clare Mackintosh (384 pages). This was a most anticipated release and I’m not sure why I haven’t read it yet… Whoops?
# The Bird And The Sword by Amy Harmon (328 pages). I LOVE her books and she is easily one of my absolute favorite authors… I’m still not sure why I haven’t read this duology yet, but I’m planning to do so in 2020.
# Things You Save In A Fire by Katherine Center (320 pages). Not my typical genre, but I enjoyed her other book and I’ve been looking forward to this one.
# Lock Every Door by Riley Sager (381 pages). There has been quite a lot of hype around this one and I’m looking forward to discover how I’ll react to it.
# How To Be Brave by Louise Beech (365 pages). My mission in 2020 is basically read all remaining Louise Beech backlist titles, starting with How To Be Brave, then Maria In The Moon and The Mountain In My Shoe.
# The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda (336 pages). I’m a huge fan of her thrillers, so I’m not sure why I haven’t read this one yet…
# Night by Night by Jack Jordan (366 pages). I love his books and I’m still not sure why I haven’t read it yet either!
# The Bear And The Nightingale by Katherine Arden (323 pages). I have been meaning to read this trilogy for so long now, but in 2020 I’m making time for all three books no matter what.
# Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson (318 pages). I loved her Furiously Happy memoir, and I have been wanting to read this one ever since…
# Dark Pines by Will Dean (328 pages). I’ve heard great things about this series and I can’t wait to finally read it!
# The Defence by Steve Cavanagh (321 pages). I loved the fourth Eddie Flynn book and I have been meaning to read the first three books ever since… I need to play catch up ASAP!
# On The Come Up by Angie Thomas (447 pages). THUG is probably one of my all time favorites and this was a most anticipated release, so I’m not sure why I haven’t picked it up yet…
Have you read any of these titles yourself or do you want to? Any titles I should give extra priority to?
