My 2020 Reading List! (Finally)

I am well aware it’s the end of February and only now have I really decided on what books I want to read for 2020. 

Two months down and I haven’t read any on this list but hey, a girl can dream right?

I’ve tried to select a broad range of novels, from ones that have sat on my shelf forever to non-fiction books that I wouldn’t normally ever read. 

1. Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery

I've always wanted to read this but bought it 3 years ago and then keep putting it off because I was worried my intellectual capacity would not be enough to fully understand it. Well self-doubt is no longer a thing and I am so excited to read this.

3. A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James

5. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I tried to start this last year but never got around to finishing it, but really want to so I can watch the movie. 

6. The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin

7. Lethal White (Cormoran Strike #4) by Robert Galbraith
In 2018 I was obsessed with this series and was so happy to hear the fourth instalment was released. Hopefully it sucks me in as much as its predecessors. 

8. The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton 
Kate Morton is one of my favourite authors so I will read anything, ANYTHING, she releases.

Your girl is trying to change her financial life in 2020 and you bet I jumped onto this craze. Here's to being in control and secure of my finances.

10. The Way Through the Woods by Jocelyn Koehler
This is a story about mushrooms. I'm being serious. And I am super excited for it.

11. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

13. Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton
This was more of a recent purchase but I want to support Australian authors and have heard so much about how amazing this is. 

All of these books I currently own, and I chose these deliberately, because I find that I forget about ones I’ve purchased awhile ago and they just sit and collect dust. For instance, I’ve had Anne of Green Gables for at least 6 to 7 years now and haven’t opened it once. 

I’m currently almost half-way through The Clockmaker’s Daughter but have been sidetracked by another book (that is not on this list oops) and I think The Barefoot Investor is going to be a year-long project, but I’m okay with that. 

I’m actually super excited to tackle this list for 2020! I only chose 13 because I didn’t want to be overambitious and also wanted to make sure I was reading some quality books. 

You can find my 2020 Reading List Shelf on Goodreads here.

Good luck to me!
