My 2020 Reading List

Here’s a list of books I wish I could read all at once (but that’s impossible) so I spread them throughout the year. 

* Disclaimer I somehow always end up reading these out of order or changing them with more books I want to read!

King’s Cage & War Storm: Victoria Aveyard

I’ve been dying to get to these books! Part of me has been spreading out my reading because I don’t want the series to end, but the other part of me needs to read the rest immediately! 

 Stillness is the Key: Ryan Holiday

I pretty much love every book Ryan Holiday has written. This one is about living in the moment and taking time to think clearly and not be constantly drowning in distractions.

Similar situation with The Red Queen series – I’ve been spreading these out as well. I started reading this series after I saw a lot of people posting about it on Tumblr.

After listening to Jocko on Tim Ferriss’ podcast I really liked his mentality and his advice so I picked these up in hope of learning to be a better leader.

You’re going to kill me. I started reading this series maybe in 2013?? I watched the movie and a bit of the show. I really like this series and yet somehow I took a break and never picked them back up. But all that changes this year. 

How the Mind Works: Steven Pinker

Very interested this year in having the best brain possible.

This has been on my list since it came out earlier last year but it’s very thick and Robert Greene’s books tend to be lovely but dense. I’m waiting for the best time to pick this up when I am ready to open my mind and absorb it all.

Sadie: Courtney Summers

I thought this was an interesting twist on a YA thriller and very current because of the podcast in the book that starts to follow along with the mystery.

Again, looking to make my brain larger and more powerful like a machine.

Re-reading an old favourite.

My friend from work has been recommending this to me for months! Finally she got me the book as a gift for Secret Santa and now it’s on my list to be read.

Winnie-the-Pooh: A.A. Milne

Re-reading this just in time for the Winnie the Pooh Exhibit at the ROM.

Harry Potter  – The Half-blood Prince & The Deathly Hallows: J.K. Rowling

You’re going to kill me again. I’ve seen the movies a million times, but when I was a kid I only read up to part of book 4 because it was just too big for me!! Now I’ve started to re-read/continue reading them and plan to knock off the last two this year.

 I never read these books as a child and so I started reading them last year and they are very lovely.

This book is written by the psychologist from the Stanford Prison Experiment! Added this to my list after another Tim Ferriss episode interviewing him.

Ok these books may not be literature. But I remember watching the first season of this show when it came out and I really wanted to know the ending!! I think I liked the show a lot better, as these were written in the 90s, but I still need to find out the ending.

Roald Dahl? Spooky stories? Do you have to ask?

I looooveed We Have Always Lived in the Castle and I really liked the Netflix show of this book.

My Sister, The Serial Killer: Oyinkan Braithwaite

This book looked v interesting and I haven’t read anything like it before so I am looking forward to it!

Pet Sematary: Stephen King

I have had this book since I was a kid and never read it!! So this year is basically the year of me readings things I’ve had on my shelf for a long time.

What books are you reading this year? What were your favourite books from last year?
