A Happy New Year to you, beautiful nerds!
I am determined that 2020 is going to be a better bookish year than 2019 chez Printed Pages & Coffee. Not that that will be hard 😀
My main challenge to myself for this year is to read at least some titles from the immense stacks of books that are currently sitting on my bookshelves that were purchased with the best of immediate-reading intentions but never quite made it to the Currently Reading list.
I am going to give the PopSugar reading challenge another shot, but I am going to try to fulfill the prompts from books I already have or books I can get from the library. I’m not saying I have no plans to buy books in 2020 (what a laugh), but I am going to try to be more intentional about it. The sole, single, unique, unitary reason for this is space. More specifically, the severe lack thereof in my current domicile. My bookshelves are triple-stacked in some places, people. Space is at a premium right now.
There are also some very specific titles that I want to read at some point in 2020, and I’m going to list them below in part for accountability, but also so you know which books I am looking at for 2020 – you might even see something you like the look of! This list is by no means exhaustive, but it’s a decent start I think.
1. Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott (yes, yes, I know. At least I’m getting there now!)
2. A Winter’s Promise, by Christelle Dabos
3. Christmas: A Short History from Solstice to Santa, by Andy Thomas
4. Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, by Dee Brown
5. The Secrets of Alchemy, by Lawrence M. Principe
6. The Colorado Kid, by Stephen King
7. Monster, by A. Lee Martinez
8. The Restless Wave, by John McCain
9. The Deep, by Alex Rogers
10. The Crowns of Croswald, by D. E. Night
What are you all looking forward to reading this year?

You’ve reminded me that I need to read the sequel to Crowns of Croswald at some stage!!
I have the sequel sitting on my shelf next to the original, it’s damned embarrassing. 2020 gon’ be the year of Reading the Shelved Unread!

Yup. I’m signed up to 2 challenges that tackle ‘backlist’ and owned books… I need to make the number smaller, while also not buying as much this year.
