20 books that are on my list in 2020

Hello everybody!

As a booklover, I always have a huge list of books I would like to read. The problem is though, I probably won’t have enough time in my entire life to read all of them. I have been following some booktubers for a while now and they always inspire me to read more. Especially now that I’ve been stuck in a reading slump, these people get me excited to start reading again. So today, I would like to share the books that I truly want to read some day, preferably in 2020. At this point, I don’t own any of them so these are all books I would also have to purchase.

To make this list, I went through my ‘want-to-read’ list on Goodreads. I always use this app when I’m reading because I love how it keeps track of how much progress I’ve made. I also love how I can set a goal of how many books I want to read every year.

I tried to make a mix of different genres, some are completely out of my comfort zone. I mostly read historical fiction books. A lot of them are focussed on WOII in specific. So if you like this genre, then you will surely find at least one book you will like as well. I added some keywords as well, maybe they’ll help you!

From all of the books on my list, these are the 20 books I would REALLY love to read asap:

  • YOUNG ADULT & CONTEMPORARY
    1. The hate u give – Thomas Angie
    2. On the come up – Thomas Angie
    3. With the fire on high – Elizabeth Acevedo
    4. Eliza and her monsters – Francesca Zappia
    5. A list of cages – Robin Roe
    6. To all the boys I’ve loved before (trilogy)
    7. The chaos of standing still – Jessica Brody
  • ROMANCE & CONTEMPORARY & LGBT
    1. Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe – Benjamin Saen
    2. Red, white & royal blue – Casey McQuiston
  • HISTORICAL FICTION
    1. Daisy Jones & the six – Taylor Jenkins Reid
    2. Cillka’s journey – Heather Morris (although I thought this was nonfiction?)
    3. Salt to the sea – Ruta Sepetys
    4. The fountains of silence – Ruta Sepetys
  • FANTASY
    1. Strange the dreamer – Laini Taylor
    2. The astonishing color of after – Emily X-R Pan
    3. Six of crows – Leigh Bardego
    4. The strange and beautiful sorrows of Ava Lavender – Leslye Walton
    5. Children of blood and bone – Tomi Adeyemi
  • GRAPHIC NOVEL & NONFICTION & HISTORY
    1. Maus – Art Spiegelman
    2. Persepolis – Marjane Satrapi

Do you have any recommendations of books I should definitely read in my life or have you read any I mentioned above?

Love, Axelle
