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!
