This month I am participating in my very first monthly challenge. Which I was tagged in by Danni from For Books Sake. You can check out her 2020 TBR Reading Challenge here. I super excited to take part!!
The 2020 TBR Reading Challenge has been created by Mina @ Stacked Reviews
- 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
My 2020 TBR Reading Challenge:
A 2020 Release:
The Memory WOOD by Sam Lloyd. This is the perfect time to read my eARC that I received from LoveReading UK.
Book Published in the Year You Were Born:
Pet Sematary by Stephen King. This will be a re-read for me I read it years ago. I do like me a good Stephen King book.
Novel that will Get A Movie Adaption in 2020:
The Witches by Roald Dahl. Another re-read. This was one of my favourite Roald Dahl books growing up.
My Sh*t Therapist & other mental health stories by Michelle Thomas. This was recommend by the lovely Laura over at Roachies Reviews.
Book you can read in a day:
Because of you by Eve Ainsworth. This was a book sent to by Laura a few months ago, and its the one of the shortest ones I own.
Book originally written in a forgien Language:
The Diary of a young girl by Ann Frank. I read this one a few years ago but I’ve wanted to re-read it for ages.
Book by A dead author:
War of The Worlds H.G Wells. I really enjoyed watching the movie version and wanted to read the book for ages. I tried to read it in the past but never actually managed to finish it properly.
Novel that was banned:
Lord of the Flies by William Golding. I’m on a mission to read more classics and I found a copy of this book at the local charity shop, so this will be the perfect time to read it.
On The Come Up by Angie Thomas. This one has been on my TBR shelves ever since it came out.
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.
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.
ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES by Jennifer Niven. This is another book I picked up from the Charity shop. I can’t actually remember what this book is about.
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 with one-word title:
Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I’ve personally wanted to read it since it came out but I’ve been putting it off, but now it’s on TBR pile for this challenge there’s no going back.
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.
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.
Book set in your home country/state:
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.
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.
The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo. Another book that’s been waiting patiently on my TBR Shelf since it came out.
The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe. I’ve heard some great things about this book, also I was gifted a copy by my best friend, so I have no excuse not to.
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 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.
