January TBR | 2020 Reading Challenge

2019 might be over, but I’m still hanging on to it for the month of January. If you read my December Wrap-Up, you might remember that I had a few books in “Currently Reading” status – in fact I have been “Currently Reading” them since about October. Well, I will be using all the motivation and optimism instilled in me by the New Year to finish those books. Plus, three more that fall under my Special Edition goal (which I explain in this post).

Here is what I will be reading this month:

  • The Italian by Ann Radcliffe (currently on page 14/454)
  • I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou (currently on page 12/246)
  • Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James (currently on page 10/291)
  • The Fall of Gondolin by J.R.R Tolkien (Edited by Christopher Tolkien)
    • Not from 2019, but the first book I started reading in 2020 (currently on page 48/264)
  • Dracula by Bram Stoker (currently on page 128/402)
    • Penguin Classics Criteria
  • Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
    • Barnes & Noble Classics Criteria
    • Not from 2019
  • The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar (currently on page 332/484)
    • Book of the Month Criteria

As I said in my 2020 Reading Challenge introductory post, I will dedicate a blog post to each of these books as I finish them, so keep an eye out here on the blog, or for an announcement on Twitter and Instagram.

      Reading just one at a time is something I have never been able to master! 😆 It definitely contributes to my countless-half-finished-books-on-my-shelves problem, but I’m very much a mood reader, so I prefer being in the middle of a bunch of different stories at once.

    Fab list! I loved Tess and Dracula, and the first three books are all waiting patiently for me to get to them. Have a great reading month – I look forward to hearing what you think of them all.
