20 Books for Christmas 2020 Reading Challenge

As well as doing the Blogtober challenge every October, last year I created a new reading challenge.  The challenge runs from 1 October through to 31st December. As the challenge doesn’t strictly fall into all of autumn or winter, I decided to name it the 20 Books for Christmas Reading Challenge.

It’s also Libraries Week this week, so there’s no better time than to get reading and become reacquainted with your local library.

Last year I was joined by several other book lovers to see if we could read 20 books between now and the Christmas period. I hope more of you will join us this year.

If you want to join us for the 20 Books for Christmas reading challenge 2021, head over to my new post HERE to find out more.

Alternatively, scroll down to see what books I read last year along with my recommended Christmas reading from years gone by.



Here are the books I’ve chosen for 20 Books for Christmas.  I have listed all the Christmas books in my TBR pile, and I will choose 20 as I go along. I wonder if I will succeed this time?

  1. Hoping to get my list sorted over the next week. You’ve got some lovely ones on your list. I’m a huge fan of Jessica Redland. Hope you get to her books! Oh and The Winter We Met is cute too! Lol. So many sweet stories for this time of year!

  2. I began my Christmas reading in September and managed to read 15 that month. My goal is to read 50 Christmas books between September 1st and Christmas. I have over 100 Christmas books on my TBR, so have plenty to choose from. I will participate again this year and my 20 will be ones that I have had on my TBR for at least a year. I will post my intro post shortly. Have fun everyone who joins in.

  3. Wow, 20 books until the end of the year?! I give you a lot of credit. I have not heard of any of the books that you plan to read, but I will look into them.
