Welcome to December! 2019 has been a very eventful year and even if you haven’t met all your goals for this year, you can start preparing to ace them in 2020. To help you along on that journey, we’ve curated a list of books you should check out as the year winds down and you set your sights on 2020.

Make sure you add these five books to your reading list – you can thank us later:

  • “My Sister, The Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite: This book is a mesh of satire, family drama and dark humor. Set in Lagos, this book goes far out of the realm of what you might expect from Nigerian authors. A must-read.

  • “Atomic Habits” by James Clear: if you have been struggling with procrastination or other habits you may want to do away with, this book is what you need to check out ASAP. It offers lots of evidence-based strategies that will help you become better at living the life you want.

  • “God’s Debris” by Adam Scott: Described by the author as a thought experiment wrapped in a story, this book will make you think. It will also help you look at the world through different lenses and might be what helps you understand your purpose in this pot of beans life. 10/10 recommend.

  • “Binti” by Nnedi Okorafor: Like “My Sister, The Serial Killer,” this book is very different from what you might expect. It is set in space and explores tropes are definitely not common in African literature. What’s more, it is the first of a trilogy. The many awards this book has won is proof that you need to check it out ASAP!

  • “The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google” by Scott Galloway: If you’re interested in technology or how the biggest companies in the world came to be what they are, this is what you need to read. Written by an investor and professor of marketing, this book gives insight into how Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook have risen to the top of the business world, the strategies they’ve used and what it means for the global economy.

 

There is no way you will read any of these books and not feel like you’re ready to take on 2020. There’s stuff to entertain you, teach you and uplift you. Enjoy!
