2020 Reading and Watching Resolutions, ready to go!

New year, new decade, new books! (Though the first one I post will definitely be majority-read in 2019.) I am ready to go with a fresh new year of reading resolutions!

So my fiancee did point out an issue with my previous year’s list: I was having to pass on a lot of contemporary fiction and spec fic because I couldn’t find anywhere to fit it in the list. And while the list’s purpose is to guide me to new reading horizons, I do also need to remember that I am a member of the spec-fic publishing community now, and I should know what my peers are producing. So with a bit of trimming, this year’s list now has five Wild Card slots, as opposed to the one from last year. Hopefully this will give me some more room to follow my bliss, while still inspiring me to read things I might not have tried otherwise. (The watching resolution list is unchanged, as it served me well this year.)

So here we go! And if you have any recommendations, feel free to drop them my way!
