Rachel Del 2020 TBR List

Beyond tracking the release date of a few books I’ve been obsessing over, I’ve never been one to give much forethought to the books I read each year. If an interesting books comes across my radar, I take an interest, but I’ve never really planned what I read.

As the end of 2019 quickly approached, I saw more and more “best of” book lists, and after seeing Bud Smith’s, I had the thought that perhaps I should change things up a bit this year, because—hey! A lot happened in 2019 and I’m all about doing things differently in 2020. Making better choices. Not wasting time on people or things that do not serve me well—and that includes reading. There are far too many incredible books to be read to waste my time on words I’m not in love with.

So. I’m noodling around with the idea of creating a 2020 TBR list: a curated list of books I’d like to read this year. This is not to say that I have to stick to this list—because I already know I won’t—but I’m a planner and I like the idea of a jumping off point.

On my list so far:

  • Modern Love: True Stories of Love, Loss, and Redemption — Daniel Jones
  • Followers — Megan Angelo
  • Grand Union — Zadie Smith
  • The Nightingale — Kristin Hannah
  • Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies — Tara Schuster
  • Such A Fun Age — Penny Reid
  • Regretting You — Colleen Hoover
  • Dear Edward — Ann Napolitano

Now I have to ask:

What books are you looking forward to reading this year?

Wow. So, it turns out I haven’t shared one of these posts since March, which definitely bums me out. But, I’m here, and I’m ready to share what I read in October. October was tough. It was a busy month, and when I did have time to read, I had trouble doing so. Nothing kept my attention. Well, except these books, apparently. What I read in October 2018: YOU  // Technically, this was my second time reading this book, but that still counts. I started watching the new Lifetime tv show, and got about two episodes in before deciding I…


Let’s Talk About Some New Books I’m Dying to Read this Summer

Posted: June 1, 2018

Well, it’s June, and I don’t know about you, but I always think of June 1st as the start of summer, June 21st be darned. I always read a lot more during the summer months. Whether it’s the warmer weather, the longer days, the sangria—I devour books this time of the year. I’ve been taking a bit of a break from writing, which is why I’ve been reading more than normal. However, my writing break is coming to an end soon and I have to be A LOT more picky about what I spend my free time reading. As a…
