#StepUpYourReading New Books To Look Forward To In 2020

Happy Friday, y'all! With a rainy weekend on our forecast here in Birmingham I can't think of anything better than curling up on the couch with a good book. This makes our first #StepUpYourReading post especially timely. I am so excited to have Phoebe of the blog Read & Wright back on the blog this year guest posting about different books worth reading. This first post should help you to start anticipating some of the amazing new releases to come this week. Plus, if you're looking for more ideas, she is finishing up a week of reviews on her Instagram, which you can follow here!


Happy New Year, friends! I’m thrilled to be back sharing some exciting new books out this year. After New Years, I always get asked, “How do you read so much? I want to read more this year!” and I am here to tell you if you can binge-watch a tv show, you can read more in 2020. 

There is NOTHING wrong with a good Netflix session. Believe me, I’m all for them and need them too. But reading more is easy: just make it a priority! I try to read for at least an hour a day, which usually includes the subway and some time before bed. But also utilize your audiobooks! I love nonfiction books on audio because they’re just like long-form podcasts. 

If you’re interested in audiobooks, I highly recommend It’s like Audible, a monthly subscription that allows you one credited audiobook per month. But instead of supporting a large business like Amazon, you can choose any independent bookstore in the country. It’s amazing! 

A New Year means new books and tons of speculation about which books will be the “book of the year.” I think this time of year is exciting, even though I usually like to catch up on any of the books I missed in year’s past. I’m going to be sharing seven books that will be coming out in the first half of the year, which are getting a TON of buzz and to look ahead for in 2020.
