A new year and a new reading list to look forward to! I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m so far back in my backlog of books that probably 1% of the books that I will read this year will actually have come out in 2020. So that means my most anticipated reads for this year have all been published and are currently sitting on my shelf waiting for me to read them. Let me know in the comments what your most excited to read this year (old or new).
In no particular order, here is the list:
Genesis: A Commentary by Bruce K. Waltke
This commentary was highly recommended from another book I read last year, How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth, as it was touted as one of the most in depth look at the book of Genesis. So I’m excited to sink my teeth into what this book has to say and dig deeper into my faith and to hear what God is saying through it.
The Way of Kings Part 1 by Brandon Sanderson
This book was actually gifted to me from a friend last year. I wanted to read it right then and there, but waited until I finished everything else that I set aside in 2019 which pushed this book back to this year. But I’m starting The Way of Kings off in January, so stand-by for an update or review soon.
Know My Name by Chanel Miller
Heard about this book from an interview Chanel Miller did on The Daily Show, you can catch it here. Her story about surviving a sexual assault and overcoming everything that comes with being a survivor of such a traumatic and dark event. I’m interested in hearing her powerful story and her journey. I can guarantee there will be tears cried during this one.
Can YOU Survive the Zombie Apocalypse? by Max Brallier
This is a pick your own adventure! For Adults! When I was perusing the bookstore I stumbled across this book and it looked like so much fun. And since the story plays out differently depending on the choices you make, the re-readability of this is huge. I wonder how many times I will pick the wrong thing though? Only time will tell.
A Battlefield Atlas of the American Revolution by Craig L. Symonds
This is probably the most nerdiest book on the list (and that is counting a Batman Comic Series). I found this while on vacation at the historical triangle in Virginia. Maps, Stats, and History. What can get better then that?
The Batman Who Laughs by Scot Snyder and Jock
Batman. Comic. Nuff Said.
Whelp, that’s my six most anticipated reads for this year. There are plenty more on my shelf, but the above books are at the top of the list.
What are you excited to read this year? Do you already have your books picked out or are you winging it? Sound off in the comments below.
