#TBR: 5 BOOKS I WISH TO READ IN 2020

#TBR: 5 BOOKS I WISH TO READ IN 2020

As you may or may not know, I've been reading Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. As I continue to read and do my best to keep my new year's resolution, I find myself enjoying a world I had simply given mere glances too. Truthwitch is a book that I had bought, put on my shelf in hopes I'd get to it sooner rather than later, and then proceeded to forget I had it. Let's just say that I don't have any regrets picking up this book and 2020 is on the track to be successful.

Truthwitch is a spontaneous read. As I said before, I forgot about the book. I didn't read the synopsis when I picked it. I just took it and ran with it. Despite my first read of 2020 being spontaneous, there are books that I do plan on reading. Some books have been on my list for ages. Other books are fairly new to the list of books I wish to read. 

Here are five books that I wish to read:

  1. Saint X by Alexis Schaitkin - This book follows a girl named Claire. Claire was seven years old when her college-aged sister went missing. Here sister is found dead several days later. Soon Claire is living in New York when she bumps into one of the men who was suspected to have killed her sister. This makes Claire obsessive as she pushes to find out what went down when her sister died and who her sister really was. Clair and Clive, the man who is thought to have killed her sister, become oddly attached to each other as she works to uncover the truth. -- There's something about the synopsis that I felt the need to get my hands on this book. I felt like I was in suspense waiting for the release date. While I have yet to grab this book off the shelf, I'll be making an appearance at my favorite book shop soon. 
  2. The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern - I've been excited to read this book for a while. When I read the synopsis, the part that intrigued me the most is where it read that only one can be left standing out of the two magicians. Not to mention there are some dark and mysterious things happening behind the curtains of a circus that only happens at night. 
  3. Find Me by André Aciman - If you read Call Me By Your Name, then you understand how vital it is to read the second book. I fell in love with Elio and Oliver in the first novel. Hell, I even watched the movie more times than I can remember. We all remember the famous speech Elio's dad gave him that moved us. Now, Elio's dad is being thrown into the novel. Sign me up for it all. Call Me By Your Name is a beautiful novel. I believe Find Me will be just as beautiful.
  4. Darling Rose Gold Stephanie Wrobel - This book is intriguing for many reasons. The most important reason is that Rose is up to something. At least that what it sounds like. Rose had grown up thinking she was allergic to everything and that she couldn't walk. Rose saw doctors figure out what was wrong with her and her neighbors held fundraisers. Truth comes out that her mother lied. Her mother served time in prison. When she's released, she has nowhere to go. Rose accepts her into her home. Before going to prison, Rose testified against her mother. Now, her mother swears she forgives her. Rose knows she lying. Rose isn't who she used to be. She's waited for her mother to come home. -- This book sounds so good. Each character has a personal vendetta and will go tit for tat just to settle the score.
  5.  Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch - Two things that I love are Gelato and Italy. Sign me up every time. I have enjoyed stories where the plot goes deeper than that. There's isn't anything more perfect than a story that takes the reader through a roller coaster of romance, adventure, self-realization, and a beautiful country with charm. Lina, the main character, caught my attention before I had the chance to read the book. 
2020 is going to be a year of books and real-life adventures for me. As I said in my last post, I spent my entire 2019 in moments and not in fantasy land. I miss fantasy land. I love it as much as I love reality. I'm learning to balance both. I may not document every book I read because I read for the love it, but I will try. Good or bad. I'm excited about all of the books I read in 2020 and the adventures I'll bring them on.
