It’s finished, it’s over! 2020 has been a very different year than what I was expecting, so I am happy to see it over. Hopefully 2021 will see everyone living a safer and healthier life. At the start of the year I challenged myself to try and read some of the books I was hoping to read in 2020. Check out how I did!
I am proud to have gotten through so many of the below books. I will admit that I wasn’t reading much as during the Australian lock down I was still working and when we opened back up I was quite frazzled (the nicest word for what I was feeling) with the public push back at opening restrictions – so combined this all together it was safe to say I wasn’t feeling all that up to reading.
So when I say proud, I do mean I am proud and surprised that I got through so many of the books.
Check out how I did:
The books that I was able to complete and read were:
- Brazen and the Beast by Sarah MacLean.
- Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants by Dav Pilkey.
- Check Please #1 by by Ngozi Ukazu.
- A Deceptive Alliance by Sydney Blackburn.
- Dragon Magic by Megan Derr.
- Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman.
- Just for Show by Jae.
- A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole and
- Tit for Tat by R.Cooper.
The book that I did not finish was:
- Embrace Your Weird: A Guided Journal for Facing Your Fears and Unleashing Creativity by Felicia Day.
The book was good and I enjoyed the content but I just wasn’t in the mind set to benefit from the content of the book, so I stopped reading 😓
In addition to this I am half way through Mr. Know-It-All by John Waters and since I’m not the biggest fan of biographies, I think this one will take me a little longer to get through.
So as it stands, I have finished 101/2 books out of 16.
One of my 2020 Goals was to read at least half of my Hopeful Reads, so I have smashed it! As I’ve said, I enjoyed this passive challenge, so I’ll make one for 2021 – keep an eye out for that!
It’s been a tough year, were you able to get some reading done? Were there any book you were happy to mark off your TBR pile? Comment and let me know!
