    *Immediately adds half of them to my TBR* I’m quite proud of how many of these I’ve read already, but some of them have been on my TBR for ages and I haven’t gotten to them yet. Hopefully 2020 is my year

  2. THIS. IS. AMAZING. I am in awe of this list and the beautiful poster. I bookmarked this to reference throughout the year and will try to print the poster. Also, I’m so honored you included Hide and Seek! And to see it surrounded by some of my favorite books on the poster… ahh you’re too sweet. *cries happy tears*

  3. What an awesome list, Carlye!! It looks like you’re going to be doing a lot of reading. 📖 “A Wrinkle in Time” is a really good book! Although I don’t particularly enjoy sci-fi novels, this one was intriguing! I want to read “The Code of Silence” as well. It is on my “Books to Purchase” list!
