As I indicated in a different post, I’ve set 23 goals for myself this year. One of the goals is–you guessed it–to create a list of 20 books I plan to read this year. And then actually read them. I’ve not been reading as much as I’d like, so this year I plan on course-correcting. To that end, here is a list of the 20 books I have chosen (in no particular order):

  1. Your Self-Discovery Journal: A Guided Journey to Identify and Actualize Your Passions, Purpose, and Whole Self by Sara Katherine
  2. I Am Not an Erosion: Poems Against Decay by Shilo Niziolek
  3. The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
  4. The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times by Jane Goodall
  5. The Rosetti Letter by Christi Phillips
  6. The Nazis Knew My Name by Magda Hellinger, Maya Lee and David Brewster
  7. These Ghosts are Family by Maisy Card
  8. The World’s Religions by Huston Smith
  9. Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah
  10. Tender Is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  11. Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes by Deborah Smith, Donna Ball, Sandra Chastain, Debra Dixon, Virginia Ellis and Nancy Knight
  12. Sorry I’m Late, I Didn’t Want to Come: One Introvert’s Year of Saying Yes by Jessica Pan
  13. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
  14. Spare by Prince Harry
  15. The Science of Sherlock Holmes: From Baskerville Hall to the Valley of Fear, the Real Forensics Behind the Great Detective’s Greatest Cases by E.J. Wagner

  19. Not So Funny When It Happened: The Best of Travel Humor and Misadventure edited by Tim Cahill
  20. The Indifferent Stars Above: The Harrowing Saga of a Donner Party Bride by Daniel James Brown

**I have not included the cozy mysteries, etc. that I plan on reading…nor any of the books I’ll be re-reading (like Outlander), either.
