My (not very) Bookish 2020

I missed my goal in the Bookish 2020 Reading Challenge. I didn’t even make bsic Book Nerd, let alone to the Max Power. Back in January of what we now call the Before Times, I somehow thought that reading two books a month would be a piece of cake.

For those of you out there who are wondering how I could not manage just two books a month when everything closed down and we were all “stuck at home,” I would point you to my previous blog post where I express some detailed thoughts on the matter.

I actually ended up doing lots of reading due to the global pandemic, just not many books.

I hope to change that in 2021. I’m not giving up! Reading more books is one of my resolutions for the New Year.

Below is a list of the ones I did manage in 2020 and the categories I assigned them for the challenge. I am putting my reviews up on Goodreads, if any look interesting. (A mini resolution for next year is to read all the books I this year before buying any new ones!)

Here’s to more novels, history and poetry and less epidemiology in 2021.
