The Rules:

  • Pick a novel for each of the 22 TBR prompts. If that’s too much for you, it’s OK to go for less. However…
  • Those who finish all 22 prompts and post their reviews on their blogs/vlogs have a chance to win a book of their choice as a reward! (International, as long as Book Depository ships to your country)
  • You can’t start reading those books before January 1st!
  • Follow the creators Twitter account as she will create a blog hopping sheet (when the challenge begins) where you can leave your links. Also, to make it easier for her to keep up, please use #2020TBRReadingChallenge tag.
  • Thank the person that tagged you
  • Tag the original challenge page (this one)
  • Tag at least 5 people

Booker Prize Winning book:

For this one I’m going to read Sellout by Paul Beatty. I have no idea what this books is about, so it will be interesting see how I get on with it. Especially as I’ve struggled with nearly all the Booker Prize Winning books in the past.

The Sellout

Book by a nobel Prize Winner:

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. The last time I read this book was back in High School while studying for my English GCSE’s, and it’s one of few that I actually really enjoyed back then.

Book from the Rory Gilmore Challenge:

The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. I’ve heard lots for great things about this book and have wanted to read it for ages. It’s quite short so perfect for this challenge.

Book over 500 pages:

Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky. Oh my i’ve wanted to read this one for a while too, but it took forever to come to my library. I finally got my copy and I can’t wait to read it.

Imaginary Friend

page-break 7

Book set in different Continents:

Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky. Ok, so as this is a big book I’m going to use it for this prompt as well. As I think this book is going to take up a lot of my already limited reading time.

One Day by David Nicholls. Oh my, this has been on my Kindle for like forever. I actually downloaded it to buddy read it with my cousin but we never got around to it.

One Day

Book trilogy:

Caraval by Stephanie Garber/ The Fifth Season by N.K Jemisin. I haven’t quite decide which one to choose. If I have time I will read The Fifth Season, as I really want to start this series as it’s been recommended by a few friends. But if not then I’ll use Caraval for this prompt.

Fantasy book:

Coraline by Neil Gaiman. This is another book I’ve heard good things about. It sound like something I will enjoy. It will be my first Neil Gaiman book.

A Classic:

A Tale of Two Cities Charles Dickens. I’m working my way through my Penguin Clothbound Classics, and my nephew chose this one for me to read. He could have chosen a shorter one but no he was adamant that I had to read this one.


In total I will be attempting to read 20 books for this challenge. I’ve tried to choose a different book for each prompt except for one, which if time allows will swap out for another book, but reading time is quite limited for January already so we shall see.

  1. Wow Mani, it looks like you’re set for some pretty awesome books in 2020! I haven’t really even thought about what challenges I want to do next year but there are some I’ve got my eye on already and so I’m going to add this one to my list and see how it’ll fit in with the other challenges I’ve got to think about! That’s not cheating, right? Haha oh wow, I’m so disorganized 😂Thanks for the tag!

    • Your welcome for the tag Dini!!! Nope it’s not cheating, especially as some of these will count towards some of my other challenges too, if I can get them read that is 😆.

      Good luck with this challenge and any others you sign up for. 😘

  2. Great TBR! I hope you’ll love A Tale of Two Cities, I actually wrote my Master’s theses around it. Oh, and I’ve never heard of My Sh*t Therapist & other mental health stories but it sounds like something I have to read. 😂
