All of us have massive TBR piles, or shelves, or lists, right? Well a friend on Instagram @Jetwithjess has created a fun “challenge” for attacking your TBR this year called #20For20Books in honor of the year 2020! It’s easy to join in. All you need to do is pick out twenty books that you already own from your TBR and read those twenty books over the course of this year! If you want to include a reread or want to add a book you don’t own yet but have wanted to read for ages that’s fine too, it’s all meant to be fun!

The difficult part for me was selecting just twenty books! There are so many boos on my TBR that I want to read! But I have narrowed my list down to these twenty books:

1 Beyond Apollo Barry Malzberg

2 Best Served Cold Joe Abercrombie

3 The Curse Of The Mistwraith Janny Wurts

4 Inversions Iain M Banks

5 Ancillary Sword Anne Leckie

6 The Land You Never Leave Angus Watson

7 Relic Of Sorrows Lindsay Buroker

8 The Deadbringer E M Markoff

9 The Mirror’s Truth Michael Fletcher

10 The Crown Of Stones Magic Scars C L Schneider

11 The House Of Sacrifice Anna Smith Spark

12 The Heart Of What Was Lost Tad Williams

13 Shadow And Flame Gail Z Martin

14 Eye Of Terra Aaron Dembski-Bowden

15 Fleet Of Knives Gareth L Powell

16 The Scorched Earth Drew Karpyshyn

17 The Sword Of The Lictor Gene Wolfe

18 The Citadel Of The Autarch Gene Wolfe

19 Fallen Dragon Peter Hamilton

20 Iron Gold Pierce Brown

Do you see any favorites on the list or ones you’d like to read to? Are you going to join in? I’m curious what books will make your #20For20Books list! Hope you join in!

    Oooo…I might have to do this. My TBR “pile” is LARGE. I’ve read Iron — I need to read his newest one. But that’s not officially on my TBR. I’ll have to go through my TBR shelves and see which 20 I want to read this year (and then kick myself at the end of the year when I haven’t read all 20, heh).

      Can’t wait to see what makes it on your list!! I’ve never succeeded in reading all of a year’s TBR myself, tried a few years back and failed spectacularly lol but I’m happy to try again!

    lol, if you include books I want to re-read, my TBR is my entire apartment!

    You got some good ones on your list! I really enjoyed Inversions by Banks, and let me know when you’re getting ready to read those Gene Wolfe’s!

      I will let you know! I enjoyed the first two books of Wolfe’s series so I’m looking forward to the next two! Banks keeps blowing me away with each Culture Novel I read!
