After taking a look at the unread books sitting on my bookshelves, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of 20 titles that I’d most like to pick up in 2020.
This isn’t a super strict TBR list that I’m going to absolutely hold myself to out of fear of punishment from the bookshelf gods. Instead, I’m hoping it will be a helpful reminder if I’m at a loss for what to read next.
Note: These are all books I own physical copies of and they are listed below in alphabetical order by author’s last name
- Rise Up Women!: The Remarkable Lives of the Suffragettes by Diane Atkinson
