I have a lot of resolutions for 2020; things to do, places to see etc., however, like most bookworms I also have some more reading resolutions. Following a mainly successful 2019 Reading Challenge I’ve devised a new set of challenges for 2020 which you can find below.
I’ve also set myself another Goodreads challenge which is to read 35 books this year. I achieved 39/30 in 2019 so I stand a good chance of completing this one. Once again I’m not including anything I will re-read in the total end of year count. With the exception of the last entry on the list, the following will all be books that are new to me.
- A Book Published in the year 2020
- A Book by a Well Known Author Whose Work You Haven’t (but Really Should Have) Read Before
- A Book Published Posthumously
- A Book Featuring an Amateur Detective
- A Retelling of a Classic
- Two Books that Share the Same Title
- A Classic of Children’s Literature
- A Debut Novel
- A Piece of Non- Brontë Juvenilia
- A Piece of Brontë Juvenilia
- A Brontë Biography
- A Piece of Brontë Inspired Fiction
- 3 Old Favourites: Jane Eyre; The Tenant of Wildfell Hall; Wuthering Heights.
I’ve already got some titles in mind but who knows what books 2020 will actually bring me? I’d love to hear from any other bookworms and Brontëites who are participating in a 2020 reading challenge. Reader, enjoy whatever you read this year.

Thanks for reading. Find me on twitter @BronteBabeBlog where I tweet about books, the Brontës, and animal rights, or on my Brontë Babe Blog Facebook page. Look me up on Goodreads too. I also have a side project where I blog about my love of Classic Crime Fiction over at The Classic Crime Chonicle. I’d love it if you joined me there.
I’d also love it if you stopped by The Journal of Juvenilia Studies where you can read my essay, “Autobiography, Wish-Fulfilment, and Juvenilia. The ‘Fractured Self’ in Charlotte Brontë’s Paracosmic Counterworld”.
