Must Read Books in 2020

Updated: May 17


** Room Details can be found below


One of my 2020 goals was to join a book club and read a book a month. I can proudly say I am crushing my goal so far! The best part of joining a book club was being able to talk about the book with others to get another's insight. Also, I started reading books I would have never thought to pick, not just best sellers from Reese Witherspoon's or Oprah's book club. Although my book club had to stop meeting back in March, I have continued with my goal.


As a child, I always loved to read everything from comic books to the Harry Potter series. But as an adult it is hard to find balance and time to sit down to immerse myself into a must read book. I do like listening to audio books from Amzon on my commute. This year, I set aside time on my schedule to read at the end of the day or on the weekends.


I put together the list of books I have read so far in 2020 and a few I plan to read that were suggested by #girlbosses. You are bound to find one that you love!


American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

My current book for May has been a heart-racing read and I am only a few chapters in! The main character has to leave her life behind in Mexico after a cartel kills her family and escapes to America as an undocumented immigrant. I am having a hard time putting it down!

The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

I had no idea Einstein’s wife, Mileva Maric, helped Einstein create the Theory of Relativity without getting any credit! Nor did I know that Einstein was a mean person to his wife. Although this book is fictional, you can find their real life letters to each other that allude to their collaboration on the Theory of Relativity.



The Guardians by John Grisham

This is my first (and only) novel from John Grisham. It is a suspenseful read about a lawyer who works with death row inmates who he believes are not guilty.



Where the Crawdad Sing by Delia Owens

If you are still waiting to read this book (like I did) you are missing out! There is a reason it has stayed on Oprah’s and Reese Witherspoon’s book club list. I recommend having tissues on hand because you will cry.



Heart Talk by Cleo Wade

My sister gave me this book for my 30th birthday and it has been inspirational. Although I have read it cover to cover, I still pick it up time to time to read a passage when I need inspiration.



Atomic Habits by James Clear

This book as been a game changer for me! The author does a phenomenal job giving you advice on how to make tiny changes to transform your habits. This took me a longer time to read because I implemented new habits along the way.

Books that were recommended to me from #grilbosses:

How Dogs Love Us Gregory Berns


Rescued: What Second-Chance Dogs Teach Us About Living With Purpose, Loving With Abandon, and Finding by Peter Zheutlin
