Ah, 2020. What a year, one I’d rather not ever have to relive! Please don’t send time machines back there, it’s not worth it!
I set lofty goals for myself on January 1, hoping I’d be able to read 60 books in 365 days. I’d read 50 the year before, so what was 10 more? Plus, with as much as I was traveling at the end of 2019, I had plenty of uninterrupted reading time on planes and trains. I assumed that would carry over into 2020.
Ha. Right. I think we all know how that turned out.
In the end, I read 45 books. Which, all things considered, is a pretty incredible feat. There were years when I only read 20 books, and worse years where I only read 5. To me, managing to read more than 1 book a month is amazing, so I’m still proud that I read anything at all. Sure, I would have loved to hit my Goodreads goal, but it’s not the end of the world.
What did disappoint me, though, was the quality of a lot of the books I read. It wasn’t hard to pick my top 5 of 2020 because… well, there were only 5 books out of the 45 that I really enjoyed.
Anyway, here’s everything I read in 2020 and my favorites of the bunch!Continue reading “My Favorite Reads of 2020”
