This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is books I need to read in 2020. Since last week I talked about books I didn’t get to in 2019, I thought today I would tweak slightly tweak the topic and pick one book from five different genres that I want to get to this year!
Romance: Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren: I read The Unhoneymooners in November, and it ended up being one of my favourite books that I read in 2019. I got Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating for Christmas, and excited to read it because I want to read more books by Christina Lauren. Based on the premise, I can already tell that this book will pair nicely with a glass of wine and that it will have me laughing out loud.
Sci-Fi: Heart of Iron by Ash Poston: I bought this book shortly after it was released in 2018 because I loved Geekerella, and I wanted to read more books by Ash Poston. Unsurprisingly, it’s been sitting unread on my shelf since I bought it, but I have hope that I’ll read it this year because I’m determined to make a dent in the number of unread books I have sitting on my shelf.
Mystery: Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz: I got this book for Christmas last year (2018), and I haven’t read it yet. I love mysteries, and I’ve been on a mystery kick lately, so I’m sure I’ll pick up this book soon. It also looks like there’s a second book scheduled to be released sometime this year, so it looks like my procrastinating may have paid off.
Historical Fiction: Somewhere in France by Jennifer Robson: I purchased this trilogy a few years ago, and I still haven’t read it yet. One of my goals for 2020 is to read more Historical Fiction, and I think that this trilogy will be the perfect way to start achieving this goal because it has romance and because WWI was my second favourite period to study at University.
Contemporary: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green: I picked up this book when it was released because I was caught up in the hype of a new John Green book (even though I think John Green is overrated). I read the first few pages of this book after it came out, but I wasn’t in the mood for it, so I put it down, and unfortunately, I haven’t picked it up since. I think my friend has a copy of this book, so I might ask her to buddy read it with me, or else I might keep on putting it off.
