Discussion | 20 Backlist Books to Read in 2020

Hello, fellow readers! Today I am discussing 20 backlist books I want to read in 2020. A backlist title is a book that was released in a previous year. There are certainly more than these 20 books on my backlist TBR, but these are the 20 books I am hoping to get to this year. The books are in order of when I added them to my Goodreads TBR list.

1. House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

2. Pines by Blake Crouch

3. Night Film by Marisha Pessl

4. The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

5. The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

6. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

7. Vengeful by V.E. Schwab

8. Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky

9. Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

10. Wilder Girls by Rory Power

11. The Passengers by John Marrs

12. The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger

13. The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh

14. House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig

15. Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant

16. The Outsider by Stephen King

17. The Institute by Stephen King

18. Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson

19. My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

20. The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

  1. I finished The Wife Between US at the beginning of this month. It was a good book. I give it 4 stars. I think you will enjoy it.


  2. Middlegame, Wilder girls and House of salt and sorrow were some of my favourites of last year!
    I also still need to pick up Into the drowing deep!



    1. That has been on my TBR forever! I do plan to read it this year finally! I only watched two episodes of the show and decided I wanted to read the books first. Then the show was canceled, so I don’t know if it had a satisfying finale.
