Happy New Year, friends! 🍾✨
Nothing like a brand new reading year, am I right?! This year my reading goals are starting out much lower than they normally do but I’m trying to account for life with a newborn and all the time that will consume. Hopefully, I can increase the number of books I want to read as the year progresses but only time will tell. In today’s post I’ll quickly wrap up my 2020 reading year as well as leave some of my goals for this year in order to hold myself accountable by the time 2021 comes to a close.
Now let’s dive in!
2020 Reading Wrap Up
Shout out to Kal from Reader Voracious for creating THE BEST book blogger spread sheet. This will be my third year using it and I honestly don’t know what I would do with it. It’s extremely detailed and the best part is you can customize it for however much or little you want to use it. Check out here post HERE if you’re interested in using it to track your reading year!
In 2020 I read 88 books, not my best or my worst but I’ll definitely take it!
Here’s a break down of my reading year in terms of when the books I picked up were released as well as my favorite books I read each month of the year:
Next up is a count of how many books I read each month:
A breakdown of the genres of books I read:
Not really surprised to see that fantasy and romance took the lead.
The two tiny slivers with no heading were Sci Fi and Horror because that’s how little of them I read…maybe I’ll pick up some more in 2021.
A breakdown of the ratings I gave to all 88 books I read.
Totally not mad that 3 &4 stars were my highest ratings.
And finally a break down of where I got the books I read, how many of the books I bought this year that I read (which is rather impressive for me), the format in which I picked up my 2020 reads, and how many ARC’s I read vs. what’s left on my TBR.
And that’s a wrap!
2021 Bookish Resolutions
- Read 60 books
- Read more books within the Adult age group – don’t get me wrong I still love YA but I’ve also found myself having a much better time with reading by broadening my horizons
- Read more from authors of color as well as books with BIPOC, disability, & LGBT+ representation – this is something I could have done significantly better with in 2020
- This seems kind of counter intuitive as a book blogger but…request less books on Netgalley & Edelweiss and read more of whatever I want
- Get back into the groove of blogging more regularly
Until next time,
