I have been reviewing books for a few years now and I’ve read over 200 books since I’ve started. I typically, either on Goodreads or here on my blog, always say at least something about every book I read, but there are some books that I have adored but never wrote a review on.
2020 is off to an amazing start! I decided to set my Goodreads goal to 70 books this year and I am already on a roll. For the first time ever, I read 11 books in one month! I typically read 3-5 books per month so the fact that I read 11 books is mind-blowing to me!
2019 has been my best reading year ever. I am currently at 53 books, passing my Goodreads goal of 50, and beating my record for books read in a year. The most I’ve ever read in a year before has been 27, so I’ve almost doubled the books. I know the reasoning is that my last two semesters of college allowed me more time to get my reading done and also, my mental health is way better than it has been in past years. Since I read a decent amount of books this year, I decided to finally do my Top 10 Favorite Books of the Year.
Not only did I read more books this year, but I’ve also expanded the types of books I read! I typically stick to contemporary or mystery, but this year I was able to read a few fantasy books. I started to love the genre and I hope I’m able to read even more next year!
This year has been one of the best reading years of my life. I’m one book away from reaching my Goodreads goal of 50 books, which is a lot for me! I usually average 20 books a year. While I’m extremely close to my goal, I want to surpass it as well.
Here are five books I really want to read before the year is over!
