It’s a new year and new chances and new reading challenges…
December was a busy and reading-pressure-heavy month so I really wanted to ease in 2020 with a short TBR… that didn’t work. Once I sat down to write this I realised I had a few things to read this month and with 100 books to read as part of my GoodReads challenge I need to keep my reading up. I’ll start this year with a TBR of 5 books 🙂
I decided to create a TBR which tackles some leftovers from 2019 but also starts the reading challenge and gets some stuff done there 🙂 I also need to read books from my existing TBR, one each from my e-book shelf and my physical shelf.
Let’s dive in!

Leftovers from 2019
Iron and Smoke by Brandon Nolta – off my physical shelf – a historic fantasy form a Native American author. This was on my last years reading challenge as a book from the top 10 highest rated books in my GoodReads want to read list. I have hope for this book to say the least.
The Danish Girl by David Ebershoff – off my e-book shelf – this is our February pick for the office book club. February in the UK is LGBT+ history month so we tried to have a LGBT+ author, with and LGBT+ main character and hopefully a bit of history and I think we nailed it with this pick.
The Starless Sky by Erin Morgenstern – I got this through the library on audio and it will be available early in the month so I need to get this started asap. Also I have not yet read the Night Circus so this will be my very first Erin Morgenstern book.
Emergency Contact by Mary H. K. Choi – I got this through NetGalley UK but I know it’s been out for a while in the US and has mixed reviews so we’ll see how this goes, but a YA contemporary would be nice thing to read this month, it’s been a while.
Feathertide by Beth Cartwright – a fantasy with mermaids? yes please! I think this is due out in May but I might as well read it now 🙂
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
What’s on your January TBR?
