Great idea Megan, to share our #20booksby2020! These are some of my choices of books to read before the end of the year. They are #bookerprize nominated books, books from the #1001books list, one to be read for the #nyrbbookclub and books for this year‘s various challenges (#booked2019, #ATY2019, #pop2019 and #ReadingUSA2019).

I am looking forward to seeing the reading plans from others 💕🤓

#FebruaryStats #FebruaryWrapUp

In February I have read 12 books, 4 of which were almost 5 ⭐️ for me. These are the ones pictured above.

Also I‘m still on track with my challenges (#Booked2019, #Pop2019, #ATY2019 and #ReadingUSA2019) and I covered 14 books of the 18 shortlisted for the #ToB2019.

In short, a very good month for me!

TrishB Cool 👍🏻 8mo

Next book, and this year‘s second book club read. Also ticking off “a book with a plant on the cover” for #popsugar2019 (thanks, cattails) ✅ Keen to make a start on this 😊

Loved it. Admittedly, I finished ‘The Amber Spyglass‘ yesterday and am still sitting here picking up the pieces of my broken heart 💔. Overall though, a fantastic trilogy which I believe holds something of value for everyone, regardless of the intended audience.

These were all the books I finished in January. I read Becoming very slowly, so it was started back in 2018! My other favorites were Bad Blood, The Sun is Also a Star, All-American Boys, and Far from the Tree. Many of these books worked for #Pop2019 prompts. #January was a great start to my reading year.

JenReadsAlot I started Bad Blood on audio today! 9mo
MallenNC @JenReadsAlot It is so good! I didn't do the audio version but I think it would do well in that format. 9mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Whoo hoo, great job! 📚💕 9mo

This book was SO fun! Wil Wheaton did such a great job of narrating this. The visual writing made this virtual reality world come to life. I rooted for Parzival, H, Artemis, and Daito the whole way. The worship for all things 80's was nostalgic feeling. The only thing that annoyed me was the way Artemis was portrayed as the stereotypically bitchy female gamer at times. It barely detracted from the story though and I give this solid 4 stars!

Tashaxlynn Loooooved his audio version! (edited) 9mo
LoverofLit @Tashaxlynn So good! 9mo

So excited for my new birthday reads 😁😍 I‘ve never read these before so figured it was about time I got around to it! Also, all three are going towards my popsugar tally so I‘m multi-tasking really 💁🏼‍♀️📚

Really enjoyed this book. A little dark and twisted, but nothing too unsettling - just enough to keep the reader feeling a little uncomfortable and eager to see what‘s on the next page. Definitely a pick for me, and can‘t wait to get started on the next book in this series soon 😊

Finally decided on my #Booked2019 #femaledetective book.
Q? When attempting multiple challenges do YOU count the same book for multiple challenges? e.g. read this book and also count it for “S” on #litsyatoz ?

4thhouseontheleft Yep! Definitely! I overlap #pop2019 and #booked2019 as often as I can. 10mo
Sweettartlaura I do, too - it makes it more fun. Kinda like a scavenger hunt... I need a Female Detective, Title Starts with G, set in the 1900‘s... it can make for some interesting reading choices. 10mo

erzascarletbookgasm Most people do...you can treat it like a ‘hunt‘ for a book that fits two challenges or you want to treat each challenge separately and read more books. It‘s up you, really, your reading challenge, you set the rules! 😉 10mo

BarbaraBB There it is already! Yay! I really liked #pop18 (2 more books to go) so I will definitely try again! 12mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!!!! I‘m super excited but shocked that a few of our prompts for #Booked2019 are similar if not the same 😫😫😫😫oh well, it‘ll help reduce number of books to read for both challenges @KarenUK @BarbaraBB 12mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen you can still chance them 😉 12mo
