2020 was the first year I ever participated in the Goodreads Reading Challenge. At the beginning of 2020, I decided I would try to read one book a week so I set my goal at 52 books.
Well, I didn’t read 52 books but I did read 25 (and purchased many, many more than that!), and considering I was also launching Her Perfect Life, writing The Secret Next Door, working a full-time job, and trying to navigate a pandemic, I’m going to call that pretty good.
If you’d like to see my full Goodreads list, here is the link.
So which were my favorite? Here’s the list in no particular order:
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin
Luster by Raven Leilani
Atomic Habits by James Clear
So many of the books I read last year were stellar, but these were the real standouts for me.
As for 2021, I will participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge again, but I’m thinking I’ll set a more realistic goal given my current schedule. With the desire to still improve on last year’s number I’m going to shoot for 30 books this year.
