Did you set up a new annual goal on Goodreads for how many books you want to read in 2020? If not, you should do so now! Here’s my list so far.
I love Goodreads and most of the books I am reading nowadays is on my Kindle eReader on my phone or laptop. What I love about the Kindle app is the ability to highlight my favorite quotes and bookmark memorable sections.
The other cool thing is that Amazon constantly has rotating deals on some of the best books available. Some of my favorite books I read last year are available for under $5 some discounted up to 80% but act now, the deal expires today!
Here are some of my favorites and others that are highly rated:
In a most improbable friendship, she found love. In a world where women were silenced, she found her voice.
From New York Times bestselling author Patti Callahan comes an exquisite novel of Joy Davidman, the woman C. S. Lewis called “my whole world.” When poet and writer Joy Davidman began writing letters to C. S. Lewis—known as Jack—she was looking for spiritual answers, not love. Love, after all, wasn’t holding together her crumbling marriage. Everything about New Yorker Joy seemed ill-matched for an Oxford don and the beloved writer of Narnia, yet their minds bonded over their letters. Embarking on the adventure of her life, Joy traveled from America to England and back again, facing heartbreak and poverty, discovering friendship and faith, and against all odds, finding a love that even the threat of death couldn’t destroy.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. Step into Jenny Slate’s wild, unfiltered imagination in this “magical” (Mindy Kaling), “delicious” (Amy Sedaris), and “poignant” (John Mulaney) collection about love, heartbreak, and being alive — “this book is something new and wonderful” (George Saunders).
You may “know” Jenny Slate from her new Netflix special, “Stage Fright,” or as the creator of Marcel the Shell, or as the star of “Obvious Child.” But you don’t really know Jenny Slate until you get bonked on the head by her absolutely singular writing style. To see the world through Jenny’s eyes is to see it as though for the first time, shimmering with strangeness and possibility.

Some other books that I’ve read in the past or I want to read are below:
If you haven’t read this book before, you have to read it right away! I read it in maybe fourth or fifth grade and it was the best thing I had ever read in my life! It is a young adult sci-fi/dystopian novel that almost anyone I have ever met who has read it, has loved (or at least rated very highly.)
