Reading plans and challenges

I like looking out how other people challenge themselves to read books and spend more time reading. This time of the year there are a lot of booktube and blog posts on this topic. I use this blog to keep track of my reading and navigate my own reading plans.

For this year I made a fairly doable reading challenge to read 55 books in 2020. And with those randomly picked 55 books through the year I made one more challenge for the year by adding 30 books I own. These 30 books are quite specific and I made a whole list. The only freedom I allowed myself is random order at any time during 2020 to pick which ever book I feel like at the time.

Here is the list of the books I own and want to read in 2020:

I have already made some progress on this list and have read 4 books so far. I have some books left unread from a reading challenge I thought for myself last year.

Five of these books I have yet to read and only one of them is not on my list of books I own. I started on The Witch With No Name (The Hollows, #13) by Kim Harrison. The Witch With No Name is on both of the lists. I will update these reading lists regularly and keep updates on both of them together.
