2020 Wrap Up

Man, 2020 was a beast. It was a pretty terrible year overall, but there were some high points- one of the biggest high points was all of the great books I read! I ended up reading 155 books total in 2020 (which is way more than I ever thought I would read), so let’s dive into my wrap up!

December Wrap Up

My December in general didn’t turn out how I expected because my grandfather unexpectedly passed away on the 22nd, so I didn’t read as much as I thought I would during the month. All things considered though, I did pretty well in terms of reading for December! I followed my TBR pretty decently and read 15 books total.

Here are the books I read in December:

First Line Friday: July 24, 2020

first-lines-friday

It’s Friday again! Woop woop! I hope everyone’s been having a pretty good week- mine has been pretty decent… nothing too special, but I have been jamming out to Taylor Swift’s new album today and I made my friend Grace an amazing Spotify playlist earlier this week, so that was fun (if y’all are interested in knowing what’s on Grace’s playlist or on the birthday playlist I made Bee last week, drop me a comment and maybe I’ll make a post about them next week!)

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Now, onto the line!

July Library Holds and Checkouts Update

Hey y’all! I’m so fortunate to live somewhere where there’s an amazing library so close to my house! The Chapel Hill Public Library is less than 5 miles from my house and they have so many physical copies of books and their e-book library through overdrive/Libby is AMAZING as well! It’s definitely made it so much easier for me to read as much as I do- I’ve checked out/read 42 e-books so far this year and 3 physical books and I have 11 books on hold right now (5 physical and 6 e-books) and 8 books checked out (5 physical and 3 e-books). (Also, I know if you follow me on Goodreads, you’re going to notice that it doesn’t have me having read over 42 books yet this year- I’ve actually read 79, but I haven’t been keeping up with putting them all into Goodreads, so I need to make sure to go in and do that at some point soon…)
