Hi friends! So I love starting out the new year with a new reading goal, and since I have soooo many books on my reading list, I’ve decided to make myself a 2020 Reading List WITH a timeline to make sure I actually read them all.
My goal is to read at least one book per month. So if I have a book that is 389 pages long, if I read 13 pages a day, I’ll be able to finish that book in a month. And of course if I want to read multiple books in a month, I just have to increase my number of daily pages to read.
Sounds easy enough right?
So let’s check out my 2020 Reading List!
#1 – The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – actually, I’m already done reading this one because it is such a quick read!
#2 – Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews
#3 – The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum
#4 – The Girl on the Train by Gillian Flynn
#5 – The Graduate by Charles Webb
#6 – Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
#7 – The French Girl by Lexi Elliott
#8 – The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand
#9 – The First Mistake by Sandie Jones
#10 – Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
#11 – The Secret History by Donna Tartt
#12 – Mad Women by Jane Maas
Like I said, I’m planning on reading at least one book per month this year, which should be fairly easy as long as I stick to my plan of action. I look at how many pages are in each book then divide that number by 30 and that’s how I get the number of pages that I need to read per day.
Here’s the breakdown:
#1 – The Great Gatsby: 189 pages / 30 days = read 6 pages per day
#2 – Flowers in the Attic / Petals in the Wind: 868 pages / 30 = 29 pages per day (but I read The Great Gatsby in only 15 days so I get a month and a half to read Flowers in the Attic so only 19 pages per day!)
#3 – The Girl Next Door: 273 / 30 = 9 pages per day
#4 – The Girl on the Train: 135 / 30 = 5 pages per day
#5 – The Graduate: 261 / 30 = 9 pages per day
#6 – Gone Girl: 339 / 30 = 11 pages per day
#7 – The French Girl: 294 / 30 = 10 pages per day
#8 – The Rumor: 370 / 30 = 12 pages per day
#9 – The First Mistake: 406 / 30 = 13 pages per day
#10 – Wuthering Heights: 326 / 30 = 11 pages per day
#11 – The Secret History: 559 / 30 = 18 pages per day
#12 – Mad Women: 214 / 30 = 7 pages per day
See? That’s very reasonable. And if I skip a day of reading, I can just read double for the next day. And sometimes I’ll get really into a certain part of a book and I’ll read way more pages than what I’m supposed to for that day and it will go by quicker.
What are your goals for 2020 and how do you plan to achieve them??
