My 2020 Reading List

I am publicly posting my 2020 reading list so that I’m more motivated to actually read all of the books on my list. That can be a real struggle for me. Does anyone else feel that way, or is it just me?

Anyway, check out my list below, and feel free to add any other book suggestions in the comments section. I’m open to pretty much anything!

The Rest of the Story

By Sarah Dessen

440 pages

Release Date: June 2019

I don’t think it’s possible for Sarah Dessen to write a bad book, so I’m obviously going to read her newest release.

Things in Jars

By Jess Kidd

373 pages

Release Date: February 2020

A mysterious historical fantasy set in Victorian London, with a strong female protagonist?! Yassssss!

Anna K.

By Jenny Lee

448 pages

Release Date: March 3, 2020

I’ve never read Anna Karenina, and I’ve never seen the movie. All I know is the book is crazy long. So long, I have avoided reading it my whole life. Lucky for me, Jenny Lee has graced us with a retelling of the classic story, and this book is a lot shorter. I’m not kidding, this book is 500 pages shorter than Anna Karenina

The Killer Across The Table

By John Douglas

352 pages

Release Date: May 2019

After reading Mindhunter, how could I not read John Douglas’s newest true crime book? Since I’m still processing Mindhunter, I might have to wait a little bit before I get started on this one.

What You Wish For

By Katherine Center

320 pages

Release Date: July 14, 2020

I have read two of Katherine Center’s novels, Things You Save in a Fire and How to Walk Away, both are great books. Her next book, What You Wish For won’t be released until July 14, 2020, so you could say the anticipation is killing me.


By Courtney Summers

308 pages

Release Date: September 2018

Sadie’s just a girl who’s trying to uncover the truth behind her sister’s murder. Then there’s the guy following her journey on his true-crime podcast.

You Deserve Each Other

By Sarah Hogle

368 pages

Release Date: April 7, 2020

First, they like each other, so they get engaged. Then, they don’t like each other…then they like each other again? Talk about complicated, am I right?

A Woman is No Man

By Etaf Rum

336 pages

Release Date: March 2019

A 2019 release from debut author, Etaf Rum. This book peers into the conservative Arab culture through a woman’s point of view.

The Sun Down Motel

By Simone St. James

336 pages

Release Date: February 18, 2020

What do you get when you put a deep-seated family mystery, ghosts, murder, and a creepy old motel together? You get The Sun Down Motel…and you also get Psycho kind of.

Little Women

By Louisa May Alcott

449 pages

Release Date: September 1868

Believe it or not, this book isn’t about tiny women, it’s about sisterhood. I’m hoping I’ll understand the little part when I read the book.

All The Bright Places

By Jennifer Niven

378 pages

Release Date: January 2015

A teen drama/romance that’s soon to be a movie! I’m thinking this book is on The Fault in Our Stars level, which means I will be reading this with a tissue box and possibly lots of comfort food.

Before She Knew Him

By Peter Swanson

309 pages

Release Date: March 2019

I read the description of this book and immediately thought of Desperate Housewives. A suburban couple living in the suburbs, possibly living next door to a murderer? Sign me up!

Evvie Drake Starts Over

By Linda Holmes

289 pages

Release Date: June 2019

Evvie Drake starts over with the help of a hunky baseball player, so obviously I’m excited to read this book.

Harry Potter Series

By J.K. Rowling

309 pages

Release Date: June 1997

Have I already read this series multiple times? Yes. Does that matter? No, it does not.

A Discovery of Witches

By Deborah Harkness

579 pages

Release Date: February 2011

All I know is some witch opens an old book in a library and all hell breaks loose. There also may or may not be a vampire love interest…

Daisy Jones & the Six

By Taylor Jenkins Reid

355 pages

Release Date: March 2019

Daisy Jones & the Six tells a raw and captivating tale of a fictional seventies band. Plus, Reese Witherspoon is making it into an Amazon series so…(hence Reese’s book club sticker).

That’s what I’ve got on my list so far! I’m equally excited to read all of these books, so I’m not sure where to start first. Obviously, I won’t be starting with the books that haven’t been released yet, unless I manage to get copies ahead of time.

If you’ve already read any of the books on my list, I want to know what you thought, so please comment 🙂

Happy Reading!!
