This week is Libraries Week and to mark the occasion Tea & Cake For The Soul has started a new challenge called 20 for Christmas 2020. The idea is to share 20 books we plan to read by the end of 2020 and then… read them all!

As you know, I am an avid reader and with this colder weather drawing in it is giving me more time to get cosy and snuggle up with a book. I will share some information about the challenge first and how you can join in if you want to, and then you can see the books I have chosen!

The Rules – How To Join In

You can join in on your blog, your Bookstagram/Instagram and/or Twitter.

There are no hard and fast rules. Just choose 20, or 15 or 10 books that you’d like to read (and hopefully review). They do not have to be Christmas themed.

Take a photo or make a list of those books and then enjoy the read.

When posting online use the hashtags


Check out the original post over at Tea & Cake For The Soul to find out more ideas and ways to get involved

  1. Matt Haig is brilliant, I have also been reading some of his kids books with my boy. I also love Cecelia Ahern for a nice gentle read. I’m also doing the challenge and I’m 1 book down already, yay!

  2. Awesome books, though I haven’t read any of them sadly. I really should participate in this challenge if I can find the time to read. How do you find the time to read lol?


    • I tend to read in bed to wind down. I also listen to a lot of audio books while cleaning and driving etc. You should give it a go, you can choose 10 or 15 books if that’s an easier target for you! X
