Books of 2020

What I’ve read so far this year.

Thanks to lockdown and furlough, I have ploughed through more books in 2 months than I have the last few years. I only have myself to blame for the lack of reading post uni. I prioritised everything but one of the few escapes I adore. After busy days at work and then training, I often just sat down and put Netflix on mindlessly in the background instead of turning pages in a fictional escape.

I’m using Goodreads to keep track of everything I read and want to. That and saving books for later on Amazon! But, I also wanted to share it on here. It’s a solid month by month list of what I’ve read and I’ll continue to update it throughout the year. I’ll link to my reviews where applicable, but if you’ve got any questions – you know where I am! Just ask.
