Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2020

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2020.  There are so many but here are 10 that come to mind!

1.  Murder, Take Two by Carol J Perry - I am really enjoying the Witch City mystery series and I really meant to read the most recent one in 2020 but it took me longer to get caught up on the series (still working on it!) then I expected.

2.  Who Wants to Marry a Duke by Sabrina Jeffries - I've seriously neglected basically any genre other then cozy mysteries in 2020 but Jeffries is one of my favorite historical romance authors and I really meant to read this one.

3.  Death at High Tide by Hannah Dennison - Dennison had a cozy mystery series that I really enjoyed so I was excited to start this new series but it didn't happen.  I am hoping to get to this one very soon though.

4.  Little Bookshop of Murder by Maggie Blackburn - August and September were a full month of cozy releases and this one fell through the cracks.

5.  A Fatal Fiction by Kaitlyn Dunnett - Basically the same reason as above.  I do love the sound of it and am really hoping to get to it in 2021.

6.  A Sprinkling of Murder by Daryl Wood Gerber - This one looks so good and I love the gorgeous cover but honestly I started reading this during the summer and just never did get into it so I put it down and didn't make it back by the end of the year.   The time I picked it up was really crazy though so I'm hoping it was a mood issue and not a book issue.

7.  Antiques Fire Sale by Barbara Allan - I have no idea why I didn't get around to this one but I didn't and then I read some negative reviews about the series so that didn't push it up the list but I'm hoping to get it read this year.

8.  Dead in the Doorway by Diane Kelly - Another one that for no particular reason I didn't get to but one I'm really hoping to pick up this year.

9.  Death Brings a Shadow by Rosemary Simpson - This was a book from 2019 that I really meant to read in 2019 and didn't so then I really meant to read it in 2020 but obviously didn't.  So I'm hoping 2021 is the year for this book because I really liked the book from this series that I did read.

10. Of Literature and Lattes by Katherine Reay - Reay's Printed Letter Bookshop was one of my favorite books of 2019 so I just knew I'd be buying this book and loving it in 2020 but it didn't happen.  Maybe this year?

What books did you mean to read to read in 2020 but just didn't get to?


  1. I was just mentioning on another blog that I need to read a few cozies, I used to like the CLEO COYLE, COFFEE HOUSE ONES.

  2. I haven't read any cozy mysteries for ages, but I used to enjoy them. There were tons of books I meant to read last year and never got around to. Hopefully, this year I'll finally make my Goodreads target.

  3. I hope you do get to these this year. They all look charming.

  4. My list would be so long if I did this. LOL I would have trouble narrowing it down to 10. I just want to read all the books! So many of these would be on that list too! Perhaps this year!

  5. I used to read a lot of cozy mysteries but fell out of the habit somewhere along the way. I keep saying I'm going to start reading them again but I haven't yet. I hope you enjoy these when you get to them!

  6. Ten is waaaay too few But I hope you get to these.

  7. I know all those good intentions to read all the books we want! If only we weren't so limited!!

  8. Of Literature and Lattes looks like a cute one I want to try too.

  9. I hope you get a chance to read all these! I have a few books from 2019 that I meant to read in 2019, but then didn’t. Then I meant to read them in 2020 and didn’t. This year will be their year!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  10. I haven't heard of any of these. I'm definitely going to be looking some of them up!

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  11. Of Literature and Lattes sounds good because I love both! 😀

  12. I love Sabrina Jeffries, but I haven't read most her books. Great list!

  13. There were about 500 that I REALLY wanted to read last year but I hardly got to any of them! Oh well maybe this year for a few of them!
