I’ve nearly hit my Goodreads 2020 Reading Challenge of 100 books…yes, 100 books! (Thank you pandemic) but there are still some fantastic 2020 releases that I still haven’t managed to tick off my TBR.
I thought I’d take you through them and see which ones I’m still yet to read!
The Guest List – Lucy Foley
Lucy Foley’s The Guest List along with her other novel, The Hunting Party has been on my TBR since it came out earlier this year. I am a huge fan of thrillers and can eat them up in a matter of days, but for some reason, other thrillers have taken precedent over this one, which I’m told is worth all the five-star reviews.
The Vanishing Half – Brit Bennett
The Vanishing Half, like all of Brit Bennett’s books, is simply beautiful and I cannot believe I STILL haven’t read this book yet. Her other book, The Mothers, was one I started and thoroughly enjoyed but due to a water bottle incident ended up completely ruined. I am determined to complete one of her books in the new year.
Hamnet – Maggie O’Farrell
2020 winner of The Women’s Prize, Hamnet was a book I managed to find in a local charity shop for 50p and I was over the moon. Yet since purchasing, it has just been sitting (proudly) on my bookshelf as part of my Women’s Prize winner’s collection. I’ve heard mixed reviews and that period of history that Hamnet is based around isn’t usually my sort of history, but I’m determined nevertheless to tick it off my TBR list.
The Girl with The Louding Voice – Abi Daré
I got the hardback edition of this book earlier this year as part of my subscription to Books With A Conscience and have still not managed to read it. I saw hundreds of bookstagrammers raving about this book on my Instagram feed but haven’t yet found the time/been in the mood to delve into it. If I managed a summer holiday next year, I think this one will definitely be coming me with.
Mexican Gothic – Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Shockingly, I read very little horror this year in the run up to Halloween which is probably because around that time I had just lost my job and was being drawn to more uplifting, light, and easy reads to help take my stress away. However, Mexican Gothic has been one I have heard utterly fantastic things about and not only that, the book itself is truly beautiful too. One I will definitely HAVE to read next Halloween or even sooner if I’m feeling it.
Lakewood – Megan Giddings
Lakewood is a book that keeps appearing on my social media feeds and advertisements, so I guess this is the universe’s way of telling me I need to read this book. I first saw it mentioned on Eva at Eva’s Book Corner stories and since then haven’t managed to escape this feeling that I need to read this book. I hope I’m not disappointed when I finally get around to reading it…
Hood Feminism – Mikki Kendall
If you know me, then you know I love anything feminist/female empowerment-related, and Hood Feminism has been on my TBR list ever since it was released. I haven’t got around to actually purchasing the book yet as I couldn’t find a second-hand copy that was in decent condition and doesn’t cost a fortune. However, with any Christmas money that might hopefully be coming my way, I can FINALLY purchase this one and get cracking with it.
And there we have it…the 2020 releases I still haven’t read yet. All of these sit proudly on my tBR just waiting to be read, hopefully you’ll see my reviews of them featured on here in the not so distant future.
What books have you not had the chance to read yet?
