New year, new books to read.

Oh, if only it worked that way. Personally, I'm still catching up on my reading from 2019 ( and 2018 and 2017). But "too many books" definitely isn't a part of my vocabulary, and it shouldn't be in yours, either. From long-awaited prequels and sequels to explosive debuts, from moving memoirs to insightful cultural analyses, the decade is starting off strong. Trust me: If there was ever a year to set an ambitious reading goal, this would be it.
