20 Before 2020


I saw this post on The Book Dutchesses and I loved the idea.  I’m going to list 20 books I hope to read before 2020 starts.  I’ll be honest and say I doubt I’ll read even half of them, but I’m going to try my best.


I’m going to choose a mix of arcs and finished books.  I’ll update in January 2020 with how I did.




Renegades  finished hardcover

Tunnel of Bones  finished hardcover

Steel Tide  digital arc

Spellhacker  physical arc




Dead Voice   finished hardcover

Midnight Beauties  finished hardcover

Now Entering Addamsville  digital arc

Our Wayward Fate  physical arc




Capturing the Devil   physical hardcover

Girls of Storm and Shadow   physical arc

Soul of the Sword   physical hardcover

Wicked Fox   physical hardcover




I Know You Remember   digital arc

The Athena Protocol   digital arc

Aurora Rising   physical hardcover

Starry Eyes   physical hardcover




Four Dead Queens   physical hardcover

Next Year In Havana   physical paperback

The Exact Opposite of Okay  digital arc

The Beast   physical arc



I will be happy if I read 50% of these before January 1st.  Have you done a post like this?  Have you read any of these books?

I'm Kristi. I'm a wife, mom, and grandma. I have been breeding leopard geckos for ten years. I love to read and have been trying to review more books (the reason for this blog besides wanting to talk about books with everyone). I also love music and going to concerts, mostly punk and pop punk.

  1. Wait! Where do I start?

    Ok. Why aren’t more people talking about Now Entering Adamsville? What the witchery even is that?

    Spellhacker and Athena Protocol? Yes please and thank you!

    Four Dead Queens is so good! I am dying to see what the author does next.

    Ok. I’m gonna stop now. 🤦‍♀️

    1. I love your excitement on this post! I don’t know why I don’t see a lot of talk about Addamsville. I’m really hoping I like it and can hype it up a bit. I’m happy to hear that you liked Four Dead Queens. I feel like it keeps getting pushed down on my list, but releases slow down a lot by the end of October. I’m hoping to get way ahead on arcs and read some backlist books during that time.

      1. Lol! Sorry. I don’t like to comment a lot unless I really have a lot to say and then people are like crap you speak! Yeah when I really have something to contribute I dont shutup! Lol. I heard the maps in Addamsville are like out of this world. I haven’t opened it on my Kindle yet but I hope I can get some idea.

        FDQ was one if the first things I read when I came out of my hiatus. I hope you review it. I havent seen many reviews.

  2. This is a really neat idea Kristi! 💓 I have a little thing like this going that I do every year. I choose some back list reads from different genres to read over the year (or try to!) It’s a really neat challenge inbetween ARCs and hyped books that pop up.

    I also have Out Wayward Fate and am really excited for it too! I loved Aurora Rising, Wicked Fox and Soul of the Sword! Asian reads are my favorite so I go after those hard core. Happy reading!! 😀
