End of the Year Reading Wrap Up – 2020

My stats were easier to find this year because I used the Book Blogger / Reader Spreadsheet that Kal @ Reader Voracious creates every year. It’s amazing, and filling it out is like therapy. I didn’t start it until September, so I didn’t have a lot of blog stats, but I did get in all of my reading stats that I wanted to. I’m not sure when she comes out with the new ones every year, but I’m definitely looking forward to it!

With that being said, I’m not trying to focus too much on stats—reading or blog wise. Reading started to feel like a chore this year, and I felt so hyper-focused on the stats on EVERY social media platform and how many books I was reading. I was trying to fly through books when I didn’t need to. I don’t retain as much information when I do that. It just became a daunting task. SO, I’m trying to end this year on a positive note. Yes, I have stats, but they’re not as detailed as I would have wanted at the beginning of year. I hope you all understand and enjoy this post anyway!

Most Disappointing

That’s a wrap, folks! It hasn’t been the best reading year, or year in general, but I found some gems. I got to read a book by Matthew McConaughey, so technically, my work here is done. *mic drop*

I hope you’re all having a great holiday. If you don’t celebrate anything, then just have a great end of the year / new year. All I ask of anyone is to be safe!

If you enjoyed this, then give it a like and follow my blog and other social media. Be respectful and happy reading!

I have recently joined the book community and I am enjoying it. I will be reviewing books on this blog as well as posting other bookish related posts. Most of the books I read are Young Adult but I'll try to read any genre. Let me know your opinions, but be respectful of others. Don't forget to tell people about this blog if you enjoy it!

  1. I feel you on reading starting to be a chore in 2020, it was so difficult for me. My goals this year is to be more flexible and forgiving to get the fun back.

    I also adored snow falling on cedars when I read it years back. Love seeing all of the stats in wrap-ups, so thank you for tagging me! The 2021 version was released last week in case you haven’t seen it. Happy reading!

      You’re welcome! Thank you for creating the spreadsheets. It’s awesome! I saw that it was released, and I’m so excited to start off with it at the beginning of the year! 🙂
