I feel like we have this conversation every year at the same time. I vow to read more. I make a list and never look at it again! I want y’all to hold me accountable. Reading brings me so much joy and I keep neglecting to do it. Help me, help myself!
After looking at the post from last year, I actually re-read The Alchemist by Paulo Ceolho and I got a good way through Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Now, I’m currently in the last quarter of Rising Strong by Brene Brown and the goal is to finish it by December 31st. I want to be able to start one new book at the beginning of each month.

Two Books That I Want To Re-Read
I know, I know. Why would I want to re-read books when I have so many that I haven’t read first?! There’s no other logic other than they’re a sure bet and they previously brought me joy and value in some way.
- The Coldest Winter Ever By Sister Souljah: I just remember not being able to put this book down for two whole entire days. I have no clue what it’s about anymore. However, I miss that level of excitement while reading a book and I want that feeling back!
- Influencer by Brittany Hennessy: It’s going back on the list because I didn’t re-read it last year. I just need to make sure that I’m on track with the suggestions made in this book.
Three Books to Finish
My intentions with these books were in the right place. However, I just couldn’t get into them enough to finish them. I’m not a quitter! So, I’ll finish them on principle and not because I super enjoyed them.
- Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
- The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
- How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie
That’s it. That’s the 2020 Reading List.
Let me know what you enjoyed reading in 2019 and what’s on your reading list for 2020.
