This one from the Unconventional Bookworms helps me tally my ARCs and new releases.

These have to be strictly released in 2020, not just added to my TBR.  You can sign up until 1st September.

I make this a maximum challenge, even though the basic level is 1-30.  I went way over last year, to the detriment of my TBR Challenge!

My target for 2020 is 12, or one a month.  Last year I read and reviewed 19.  I’ve decided to put a maximum of 16 on it. (yeah, that’s what I said for 2019…)

Anticipated books for 2020


  • The Lantern Men by Elly Griffiths (pub Feb-20)
  • The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis by Christiana Figueres; Tom Rivett-Carnac (pub Feb-20)
  • Of Salt and Shore by Annet Schaap (pub Sep-20)

2020 Progress

  1. A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende (pub Jan-20)
  2. The Year Without Summer by Guinevere Glasfurd (pub Feb-20)

2019 Result

So this challenge is now complete, I did 19 and have no more new books lurking in my TBR other than Conspiracy of Magic, which I got too close to publication to review straight off.

Books read and reviewed (link to reviews)

Note that the covers I have may not be the final ones for the released book, or they may differ either side of the Atlantic.
