What I Read in 2020

Hello loves,

I hope that 2021 is treating you better than 2020. I didn’t believe I’d be writing my reading overview post of 2020 in March but such is life.
2020 was a weird year to say the least but I think it’s the year with most new reads I’ve completed and the least amount of rereading which is a yay in my book.
There might be spoilers within the reviews so be careful and I will be updating this list with more links as I post the reviews.

I started 2020 off very strong and completed my reading goal of 50 books by May or June and then I started slumping and read all of 10-12 books between June and December.

Here’s the list of what I read and I’ll go briefly over the books I enjoyed most.

It was a great year for reading and I definitely read a lot of retellings and most of my reads were 5 stars as you can tell. I will be updating this list with links for reviews as I post them so it would be more accessible. The books I enjoyed most were The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, Aurora Burning, Spin the Dawn, Chain of Gold, Red, White and Royal Blue. I think in 2021 I might do more rereading than I did in 2020 but we’ll see how it goes. I am certainly hoping to get more reading done overall.

How was your reading year in 2020?
