It’s January which means it’s a list month extravaganza so here’s another list for you – this time on the books that I want to read in 2020. Every year I make a list of my priority reads for the year, every year the year ends with me not having read most of the books on it. This year though I am determined to read all of these – don’t rain on my parade. Each cover links to its goodreads page.

As always, I love spending the beginning of the year looking forward to see what’s being published in the coming year to discover which books excite me, which to keep an eye on, and which I definitely need to get my hands on (sorry backlog TBR!). With every year that I’m a book blogger, it brings my heart so much joy to watch the increasing amount of diverse fiction being published. This year there are so many incredible diverse books written by diverse authors being published that I can’t wait to read and champion. Here are 14 of my most anticipated 2020 releases – each book includes the Goodreads blurb and a 🔍 to signify my reason for including it on my list. Covers link back to GR.
Although Pokemon Sword and Shield were released in November 2019, I didn’t get my copy until Christmas which means I’ve had a lot of Pokemon adventures to catch up on. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been pouring my time into Pokemon Shield and exploring the new features, settings, and pokemon available in my edition of the game. Now turned out the perfect time to be playing through the game as well as there was a Pokemon direct announcement yesterday which revealed that Nintendo will be releasing Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC in June 2020 and Fall 2020 which will bring two new areas full of adventures, friends/rivals, and pokemon which is very exciting.
Until then, I’ve got quite a bit of the game left to play and wanted to share with you all my first impressions of Pokemon Shield. I hope you enjoy and, if you also have a Nintendo Switch, feel free to add me!
