Books I Read in 2020

Well, last year was kind of miracle year for me reading-wise. I did go in with all these goals like 'read more fantasy' and 'finish some book series' but 2020 kind of took me for a wild ride.

Over the past few days with New Year's Eve and everyone out there making resolutions they either may or may not go through with, I have seen a lot of discussion over Goodreads/reading goals. Personally, I'm a huge fan of the Goodreads platform because I find it to be extremely helpful in tracking the books… Continue reading My Goodreads Goal and Why I Set One
