I have decided that I am making this a tradition. I am going to create a book list for the year. That’s not to say that I will actually read these books by the end of the year, but doing things like this has reignited my love of reading and I can’t wait to get started into these gems. There may be book reviews there may not be, one thing I have learned from 2020 is not to box yourself in, so if you are here welcome and happy New Years, what are you currently reading?
I made a list at this point last year (click here), although I didn’t manage to read all of the books that were on my list; I did get through 22 books in total, so I am calling that a win. I put all of my progress on Good Reads so if you are interested you could always find me there (click here).
