Hello fam,


20 Books To Read In 2020

Year 2020 is just a couple of weeks old and most of us still have lofty hopes and dreams for it.


One area a lot of people fail to pay attention to is GROWTH.

Growth does not happen by chance. Although the opportunities are numerous, the decision to grow must be intentional.

One of the simplest ways to grow is through consistent learning – and an easy way to achieve this is by reading.

Looking for what to read this year? In no particular order, here are my top suggestions:

1. I’ll have what she’s having – Bobbie Houston

I love this book in particular because it helped me realize that it’s only in living meaningfully for the audience of one -God, that I can truly make a difference in the lives of others.

Check out the review here.

2. Becoming – Michelle Obama

This woman is GOLD!

I’m yet to read any other memoir/autobiography as interesting and compelling as hers.

And I’m definitely going to do a review on it soon.

3. Why you act the way you do – Tim LaHaye

I read this book many years ago but I’m re-reading it this year.

If you don’t know much about temperaments, here’s a good place to start.

4. Crash the chatter box – Steven Furtick

This is a humor-filled, godly but practical book on how to “shake a table” where fear has been comfortably sitting for too long.

5. Awaken the giant within – Tony Robbins.

I read this about 5 years ago and it triggered a restlessness in me.

My life has never been the same.

6. No Excuses – Brian Tracy

One of my recent favorites. Excuses are just too common.

This book will force you to see the lies that you’re allowing to hold you back from fulfilling your dreams.

7. LEAN IN – Sheryl Sandberg

Are you a career woman looking to take bold steps in the cooperate world? Then this book will definitely be a game-changer for you. It literally reset my brain in many ways.

8. The 4 Loves – C.S Lewis

If you’re yet to read a book by C.S Lewis, this is a good place to start.

This book is really good.

It will help you to understand the dynamics of the different types of relationships, their strengths, expectations and shortcomings.

9. Fervent – Priscilla Shirer

If there were ever a book on prayer that I think every believer should read at least once in their lifetime, it is this book.

Your prayer life cannot remain the same afterwards.

10. Prayer deposits – Allison Hyacintho

For courting and married couples.

As spiritual as the title sounds, it’s a rather laid back, humor-filled yet very insightful book.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this with my partner, and highly recommend it.

11. Unstoppable – Christine Caine

“On your mark, get set, run!”

This is a call-to-action book and a compelling reminder that you and I didn’t come to this world to play.

12. Ask It – Andy Stanley

This book basically simplifies the need for godly wisdom and no matter your current season in life, your life could use some wisdom.

Check out the review here.

13. The Smart Money Woman – Arese Ugwu

This is a good book on personal finance especially for women in this part of the world, because we are primarily conditioned to think that it’s only men that should take financial responsibility seriously.

14. Passing it on – Myles Munroe

This insightful book is a reminder that we are in transit, and whether we like it or not, our days are numbered. So we must do our best to give to the generations after us, what we already know.

15. Crazy Busy – Kevin DeYoung

Looking for an escape from a world that is constantly distracted? Then you need to read this book.

16. Lioness Arising- Lisa Bevere

This is such a captivating read, and highly recommended for every daughter of God who wants to gain insight into what God can do through her.

17. The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck – Mark Manson

The Author of this book didn’t mince words in addressing the entitlement mentality of our generation. Minus the abundance of the “cuss words” used, this book is highly recommended.

18. How To Achieve More With Less – Celestine Chua

A very short and precise book that I think everyone, whether young or old would benefit from.

Check out the review here.

19. The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People – Steven R. Covey

This is a book that has made a difference in my own life and I especially recommend it to anyone who wants to make a lasting difference not only in their lives but also in the lives of others.

Check out the review here.

20. Fire Brand – Debola Deji Kurunmi
I feel a slight reluctance in adding this book, because for a pretty fast reader, it took me all of 6 months to finish this book, still the book isn’t finished with me yet.

But if one of your goals this year is to improve your intimacy with God, then FIREBRAND is definitely a book to roll with.

Your personal walk with God cannot remain the same, that I promise you.
