I can’t believe another year is almost over. In less than a week it’ll be Christmas, and a week after that will be the start of 2021. 2020 has been a crazy year for everyone, and I hope you all stay safe and happy as the year ends.
Today I’m going to do this book tag, originally created by Ariel Bissett. I’ve done it the last couple years and I’ve always enjoyed it. Though before that, I’m going to share a few of my Goodreads stats this year.
As of today (Saturday, December 19, 2020), I’ve read 171 books, surpassing my Goodreads goal of 104 books this year.
I am a little disappointed that I didn’t have a chance to read any tomes this year (any book over 1,000 pages), but there’s always next year.
I’m really happy that my average rating in 2020 was 3.4. I always think of 3 being average, so anything above that is above average. So I’m glad I found so many enjoyable books this year!
Also, before we get to the tag, on December 14, I got a notification on WordPress that it was my 4th year anniversary running a blog!
I cannot believe it’s already been 4 years of blogging, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it!
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to the tag.
Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?
There are quite a few, honestly, but four I’m actively reading right now.
There are a few more I want to get done before the end of the year, but realistically these are the ones I’m pretty sure I will finish.
Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?
Well, it’s kind of past autumn, so I’m going to pick a winter read, perfect to transition to the next year.
This is a novella about a young family who moves in with an old women for Christmas. It’s adorable, and I love the main theme of appreciating the blessings you have in the moment.
Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?
Every book I’ve read by Marie Benedict I’ve loved, and this one is a fictionalized story of the days that Agatha Christie went missing (based on real life). I’m really excited for it! I’ve already ordered it from the library. It’s set to be released at the end of December.
What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?
Well, I already mentioned the four I’ve started, but I’ll add three more than I have out from the library, but I’m not sure I’ll get to this year.
Clearly I’m in the mood for Christmas books currently…
Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?
Probably none…not out of all the books I’m currently reading, even if I’m enjoying a lot of them.
Have you already started making reading plans for 2021?
I have some ideas…but that’s for another post.
