If nothing else, this year was decent for reading. Even though I took time off of reviewing, I remained a pretty strict rater. Not a lot of books made 5 stars for me this past year. Nonetheless, I enjoyed reading more by not forcing myself to do any challenges, not pushing myself to review anything, and just going with whatever my mood called for. I am a mood reader and I must accept that and stop forcing myself to into any reading boxes.
In no particular order, here are my favorites from 2020:
I’m almost done with Dune Messiah, I plan to finish it tomorrow night, and I am just going to go ahead and name my top two books of 2020 as such:
Good morning one and all! It’s the time of year, quite literally the very day, that one chooses what changes they want to make in the new year. But before I get into that, let’s recap how I did with 2019’s resolutions.
Begin re-reading the Harry Potter series: I did read the first book, so that’s one bookish resolution down.
Read fat, epic fantasy novels: Semi-successful? I read four, what I consider fat, novels. I had hoped to get to a lot more but it just didn’t happen.
Like I said last year, some progress is better than no progress. 🙂
Spend the minimum amount on books as possible. I have over 100 books at home and it’s time I made my way through a large chunk of them. This means no buying books, with some few exceptions: If I must buy a book for book club because it is unavailable anywhere else or it’s such a good deal that it would be stupid to pass it up. (Less than $5 and I desperately want it.) Library and borrowing from Ms. Moth and my little bookworm cousin are 100% acceptable.
Read more non-fiction. I’d really like to get back into true crime reads and other things to grow my knowledge base.
Build a bookshelf. I wanted to do this in 2019 but it never happened so I’m making it an actual goal in 2020.
That’s it for bookish resolutions.
I don’t usually do resolutions outside of books but Mr. C&M and I are making a point to change some things this year.
Get in shape. It might seem cliche but we could both really be healthier.
Pay off medical bills.
Pay down credit cards.
To sum it up, basically our goals are to get ahead in life in 2020. We’re not doing bad by any means but we both want to be sitting comfortably in the future.
