It’s that time of year…NYT book list season

Books read
So excited for the New York Times top 10 on Monday. But, in the meantime, a list of 100 books from the year.

Welcome one and all to the list that makes me gush, rush to multiple bookstores and publish Amazon lists in the hopes that one or two of the people who would like to purchase me Christmas gifts will take a peep at the list and purchase me one of these gems. I also LOVE the satisfaction of going through the list and seeing which books I’ve already read. OK, so I’m getting a little ahead of myself. Let’s start at the beginning.

Each year, the New York Times publishes a list of the Top 100 books of the year — they then make final cull to discuss their top 10. In previous years, Brittany and I have made a decision to tackle this list, first in the first quarter of the following year, then in the next year and it has since become a list that we look at, with a hopeful nod, but some of them just aren’t our cups of tea. But, I digress again. First, let’s get into the list!

New York Times top 100 books of 2020

You can access the full list here. I encourage you to peruse it yourself and perhaps choose at least one book you wouldn’t normally have chosen for yourself. Here are a few of my reactions from looking it over. 

Caste by Isabel Wilkerson and A Promised Land by Barack Obama
The only two books that I have read or am reading from this list. Clearly, I’ve got some work to do.

(Not going to lie, the brevity of this list is a kick to my pride.)

Books I’m excited about

Ok, so now that I’ve basically copied the entire list and put it together here for you, what are you looking forward to? 

Reminder, or in case you’re new here, the Top 10 Book List will be released on Monday! Check back to the New York Times website to see where your favorites landed.
