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