I was lucky enough to read 135 books in 2020.
This will be my year total of books. I read 135 books and a total of 37,420 pages read. I read books from 22 countries and 30 US states (I am surprised on how many books are set in Texas, NYC, and London). All in all, a good year. My yearly stats since keeping track-
2018: 140 books
2019: 150 books
2020: 135 books.
You can tell that I had some stress for about the 1st seven months of the year. I am totally ready for 2021 cause so over 2020.
My favorite Fiction book of this year was….
My favorite non-fiction book this year was….
My new Favorite Author is Katherine Center! I just adore her books. Her books really make me happy! Plus, her covers of her books are just downright beautiful. This year I read: The Lost Husband, Happiness is for Beginners, How to Walk Away, and What You Wish For
These are the books this year that stood out to me- these are just the ones that I either enjoyed or were original:

Fiction (not in any order):
Star Crossed Sisters of Tuscany by Lori Nelson Spielman
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab (for having an original plot. This book was not a 5 star read for me as I thought it was slow)
