My 2020 Reading Goal
My Goodreads challenge reading goal is 100 books this year. This is my largest challenge ever, but I’m really feeling it this year.
I am technically behind schedule, but I’m not worried. I’ve been reading really long books so they’re taking me a while.
As of July 31, I hit 50 books! So, halfway!
What I Read in July 2020

Ice Queen by Felicia Farber – How can an innocent high school junior get caught up in a sexting scandal? Blair Evans learns that it’s pretty easy. Getting out of it is the hard part. Even worse, Blair discovers that the very laws that are meant to protect her end up turning her into a criminal.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Killers Keep Secrets by James Huddle – In April 2018, the long-unsolved Golden State Killer case burst wide open with the shocking arrest of 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo, a former police officer. But no one was more stunned than the people closest to him: his family.
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston – First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont.
When We Believed in Mermaids by Barbara O’Neal – Josie Bianci was killed years ago on a train during a terrorist attack. Gone forever. It’s what her sister, Kit, an ER doctor in Santa Cruz, has always believed. Yet all it takes is a few heart-wrenching seconds to upend Kit’s world.
Night by Elie Wiesel– Night is Elie Wiesel’s masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps.
Right now, I’m reading What Did She Do?, Zoon Garden, and How to Be an Anti-Racist.
