A few days ago I posted about some books on my TBR that I finally want to get around to reading in 2020. My TBR is huge and I want to get it under control in 2020. So, this year I want to make effort to tackle some of the books on there that have either been on there for years, I was massively excited about when they were released or ones that I’ve heard so many excellent things about. I’ve split this into two parts and you can find part one here. Here is part two of TBR books I want to tackle in 2020!
Mosquitoland by David Arnold
“After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the “wastelands” of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.
So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.”
I cannot for the life of me remember when I bought this book but I do know it was a long long time ago. It has been staring at me from my piles of books for a long time too and I feel like it is finally time to read it. I don’t know what to expect from it at all but I am excited to finally give reading it a try!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
“The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.”
A friend gifted me this book back in high school because it was her favourite book in the world. It has sat on my shelf for years upon years now and I have not read a single chapter of it. I am hoping that this year I will read both this and The Starless Sea because Erin Morgenstern’s books always have incredible reviews!
It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne
“Audrey is over romance. Since her parents’ relationship imploded her mother’s been catatonic, so she takes a cinema job to get out of the house. But there she meets wannabe film-maker Harry. Nobody expects Audrey and Harry to fall in love as hard and fast as they do. But that doesn’t mean things are easy. Because real love isn’t like the movies…”
I have read so many Holly Bourne books and have loved them all, but I am yet to read this one. I am going to make an effort to finally pick this one up this year because I’ve had it since it’s release day. I have heard many amazing things about this book and I want to finally read it.
Dead Popular by Sue Wallman
“The ultimate queen bee, Kate knows that you don’t become the most powerful girl at Mount Vernon by playing nice. But when strange, chilling messages start appearing all over the school, she realizes someone is playing a much more dangerous game – and they know too much about Kate’s past. If she doesn’t figure out who’s behind this, her final year at Mount Vernon could be exactly that: her final year.”
I love Sue Wallman’s books and always look forward to reading a brand new book from her. Thriller books are some of my favourite books and I finally want to get round to reading this one. I might wait to take this one to Lanzarote with me this year because I think it would be the perfect book to distract me whilst I am on the plane there but we shall see!
Radio Silence by Alice Oseman
“Frances is been a study machine with one goal. Nothing will stand in her way; not friends, not a guilty secret – not even the person she is on the inside. Then Frances meets Aled, and for the first time she’s unafraid to be herself.
So when the fragile trust between them is broken, Frances is caught between who she was and who she longs to be. Now Frances knows that she has to confront her past. To confess why Carys disappeared…
Frances is going to need every bit of courage she has.”
I have read every other Alice Oseman book except this one. I love Alice Oseman’s other books and finally want to read this one because I know so many people love this and I have been recommended it so many times. I will finally be picking this one up this year!What books on your TBR do you want to tackle in 2020? Let me know in the comments below. Be sure to look check out part one of this series here!
