  1. I’m honored to be included with so many great authors! That’s a pretty ambitious list, especially if you’re going to be reading all the Song of Ice and Fire (aka Game of Thrones) books. I first “read” them by audiobook, but now I’m going back through them in ebook format and I would recommend the latter, because actually seeing the names and world-building words on the page seems to make the experience richer for me. They are the sort of read where you can just sink into the world and move slowly along with the characters.

    I’ve read quite a few of the classics on your list, but for some reason can never quite bring myself to read Lolita, even though I feel I should. Is it because of the subject-matter, I wonder?

    Best of luck with your 2020 reading!

    1. Aww, I’m looking forward to reading your book. Most of the classics are re-reads for me. I’m a little nervous about the Game of Thrones books, but I’m going to give it a go. Lolita is a new read for me. I guess I’ll see what it has to hold. Thank you, Jane. I hope you have a great reading year as well. πŸ™‚

  2. From your list I’ve read “Glass Castle” (all the trigger warnings), “East of Eden” (I LOVE Steinbeck!), “The Great Gatsby” (I read it during my last year in MFA – great book), and I tried to read “Catcher in the Rye” but couldn’t get into the language. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it.

    1. I’m looking forward to reading all these. I love Steinbeck too! I read Catcher when I was younger. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I’ll write up my thoughts.

  3. Your list has inspired me to add a few more to my list. Especially, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou. Thanks for sharing your 2020 list.
