Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to read more? You should take our 2020 Moms’ Reading Challenge!
For the past few years, I have consistently fallen short on my yearly reading goals. I track my books through the app Goodreads. If you are not a member, join now! It is a social media site for readers. Even if you do not add anyone as a ‘friend’, it is the perfect way to track what books you have finished and which you are hoping to read.
Goodreads allows you to make a yearly challenge and state how many books you would like to read in 2020. My challenge to myself (and you!) is one book a month!
That’s right, one book a month for all of 2020. Do you think you can do it? I know you can! To make it easy and fun, I’ve outlined my 12 and hope they give you inspiration. I’ll put a review of each on the blog. . . you can share your opinions, and it will be like all of our blog readers are one big book club! YAY!
Here we GO!
January: Sold on a Monday
A sweet literary friend at work loaned me this gem. If you liked Orphan Train, you’ll love this!
February: Are You Sleeping
We have to read this book before watching the TV series under the name Truth Be Told. This is a psychological thriller written by my sorority sister! Hooray!
March: The Dutch House
A Today Show: Read with Jenna Book Club pick, this is a novel about the bonds between brother and sister.
April: The Giver of Stars
Can’t go wrong with a Jojo Moyes book! This is set during the Great Depression and follows a group of five women as they journey through the mountains of Kentucky. A story about friendship…here is your next book club pick!
I purchased this book over a year ago, and haven’t committed to reading it. Lately so many friends have been recommending this, it is time I finished it. You don’t have to be political to take notes from icon Michelle Obama!
June: American Royals
So excited for this one! Are you obsessed with William and Kate? What if America had a royal family?! Light and easy reading for your summer break!
This has been on my to-read shelf for a while as well. This book is supposed to be hilarious! Also a must read before watching the movie!
August: Little Fires Everywhere
A tale of two families in a suburban Cleveland, this book is also soon to be a Hulu series starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington.
September: The Huntress
If you loved loved loved The Alice Network as much as I did, you will be totally excited about this one! Kate Quinn is so good at telling the story of female involvement in World War II.
October: Daisy Jones and the Six
The story behind the breakup of Daisy Jones and the Six. This epic novel set in the 60’s and 70’s will certainly be unforgettable. I gave 5 stars to both The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Maybe in Another Life, both by this same author.
November: The Lost Girls of Paris
Another tale of ordinary women who did extraordinary things in post war Europe. More historical fiction that I can’t wait to read!
December: Christmas Shopaholic
It can be tricky to find a good, not too cheesey Christmas themed book. I found this one after I read Mr. Dickens and His Tale. Who doesn’t love a good Shopaholic book?!
For choosing if you have already read one of the above . . . or dislike one of the picks . . . or *gasp* finish the list!
Ok, now that I have typed this out, I am committed to reading all of these books! It is very hard for busy mommas to make time for reading, but this is our year! I hope you can join me in this reading challenge!
